You may get a better response if you post in the ottertail /fergus falls section. There is a good population of small bass and they are fun to catch and release. For me personlly the walleye fishing was better a couple years ago but you can still find a few if you are persistent.

If you could hold a rod over the opener you could catch fish. They announced on the radio that Ten Mile was putting out limits and on Sunday the circus was in town, tons and tons of boats. Once spring is over most people fish it for smallmouth, it also has some nice crappies too.

I fish Ten Mile a lot in the spring. Fabulous Crappie Lake. Fantastic Bass Lake also. Good Walleye action also on the end near the access. Look for Bass and Crappies near the culvert that goes under the road in to south ten mile.

      Was on Skogman last night. Could not get anything of size to bite. 3 " sunnies and 6" crappies this time. The vex was lit up most of the time with lookers.  Last year did Ok with bigger crappies and sunnies. Middle of the week - not to much activity - nice weather- was hoping for better results. Oh well - that's fishing. Good Luck

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.
