HotSpotOutdoors and Fishing Minnesota would like to invite all you fisherman and fisherwomen to The Cactus Resort and RV Park in Perham, Minnesota for a fishing seminar with host Mr. Walleye Specialties Pro Staff Guide... Tony Roach.

Many of you may have seen or heard Tony's seminars before at Gander Mountian, Cabela's or Sportmans Warehouse Stores or at the sports shows in the twin cities.

Tony grew up in northern Minnesota where he has been a fishing professional for over a decade now. With Tony's last name being Roach, you just know that Tony is a library of fishing knowledge! Gary Roach(Mr. Walleye)and the Roach family are icons in the fishing industry.

Tony has competed in tournaments all across the Midwest and offers a vast varity of fishing knowledge of multi species when it comes to fishing. Tony has a passion for fishing and hunting and that is why he is considered one of the states best fishing guides!

Take advantage of this great opportunity before the open water season starts. Only 300 seats are available so please send an e-mail to to reserve your seat. Again this is a free seminar but seating is limited.

Tony will talk about early panfishing on lakes and rivers. Rigging and jiggin for walleyes. Different spring fishing tactics. And the most important subject, boat control!

I promise you that you will leave this seminar with some new knowledge that you didn't know before. So come and join us on April 29th at The Cactus Resort & RV Park Banquet Room at 2pm

      Heading out again shortly.  Quick report from yesterday.  It was inconsistent for us. That's probably because it's my first attempt on Vermilion ever after labor day.  4 of us spent our day vertical jigging with a little lead core mixed in.   We kept 11 and had a couple 23-26" fish.  We never really found a big pod. Almost everything was caught jigging. Trolling was tough although i know it's been a good trolling bite yet.  Depending on the spot we fished 24'out to 40'. I'll have another report tonight.

      Hudson area report.  Fished yesterday morning with a buddy from 8:30 till 2:30 and found some active fish.  Water temp was around 54 degrees.  Speed right around 2.2 mph.  Same program of snap weights and scatter raps.  Caught around a dozen eyes/saugers, 1 surprise 18 smallie, and 1 white bass.  Keeper eyes/saugers went 15, 16 17, 19 and one around 20.  Best water seemed to be between 24 and 27 feet of water.  Good luck out there.  
      This site has really tanked, and I haven't been on here for about a year, but I felt compelled to fill some of my old duck blind buddies in on the latest happenings in NW Minnesota. From what I can see we've really hit that Late October lull time.  The vast majority of our local birds pulled out with that big full moon, and the cool clear nights last week.  I've been back and forth across the countryside quite a bit, and I'm seeing very few migratory waterfowl in the area. With temps being what they are, and now that everything has dried out quite a bit up here, the majority of our farm fields have been cultivated and turned up black.  Pretty balmy now for this time of year.  I wouldn't expect any kind of big migration over the next week or so, but I'd imagine a few will start trickling down out of Canada here and there. I hear things are going pretty well out in the Dakotas.  Prolly smart to head over there if you really wanna get into birds.  Just not much to speak of at all right now in Northwest Minnesota.

      Fished alone today. 26 fish total. Biggest pike 36" and stuffed full of bait, biggest walleye 26", Biggest bass 19" - 4.03 lbs. If I had landed the last three fish I hooked, it would have been a great day. All felt like BIG walleyes but they chose not to show themselves before departing. Got one pike on big musky crank, everything else on soft plastic. Lunker City Swim Fish got the biggest bass and walleye. LOTS of boats out fishing - don't they know it is hunting season? Trailer still blowing fuses - arrrgh! Today's video: Today's video link
