Little bro and I floatubed/wade-fished a small metro lake on 4-21. The big 'gills were going wild in 1 to 4 feet of water on the north side. A few 'craps and bass in the mix. A nice and windy day to be out. BTW a 1/32 oz jig head tipped with a bit of night crawler outfished plastics and hair jigs 3 to 1...

I was out on WBL on Thursday/Friday. You had to be fishing on the side of the lake or bay that the wind was blowing into. It was tough in the waves but the fish were biting. Saturday was just to rough to go out and have fun.

Two of my buddies and I braved the wind for as long as we could on saturday on the northeast side by the water ski course. Got 3 nice crappies and one dink. Got too windy at about noon. Fished in other areas and got nothing but bass and northerns. Man we got soaked from the waves crashing into the boat.

On the other hand, today was very good for crappies. Got our limit (didn't keep all of them) in about 3 hours. Fished away from the crowd and found some dandies. By the way the guy working at the city access was talking sounds like everyone was getting them.

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
