  1. Today
  2. 2 years old with new battery and charger. Great working order. Just selling because I have to many graphs. Test me at 218-3four8-55threetwo
  3. I think there should be a catch and release state record category for EVERY fish. Not just these larger ones. Not everyone is interested in killing a fish that could potentially be a stated record. I understand that they're trying to protect these larger species of fish but there should be a C & R option for all of them, not just some of them. Way to go on the muskie.

    Awesome hunt.
  5. Yesterday
  6. Corey Kitzmann of Davenport, Iowa now holds Minnesota’s brand-new state record catch-and-release muskellunge, a 57¼-inch monster caught on Lake Vermilion. read it in the Duluth news tribune https://www.duluthnewstribune.com/news/4731617-Iowa-angler-lands-monster-musky-on-Lake-Vermilion
  7. Got out Saturday and tried for some eyes and didn't find a one...barely graphed a fish in many areas! We switched it up and went crappie fishing and found a school in deep water and caught enough for a meal. We were using small jigging raps. Great bait when trying to stay vertical in deeper water with a slight wind. Hope to get out another time or 2 but we will see what ma nature has to say about that...Good Luck- Ozzie

    Fall Rifle Site-in

    We are actually in the city of Monticello. We had to get a building permit for the shooting shelters and MN DNR grant. As part of the building permit process the city asked us to do some sound testing. Interestingly, we are quieter then the city standards.The motorcycles and pickups with big tires were quite a bit louder then our shooting tests. We also added sound deadening material to the ceilings of our shelters. It helps big time. Our club has been there since 1946 and predates any housing in the area. MN ranges are protected when you are in compliance, and we are. More improvements to come to our range soon. Great place, great people.
  9. On the south end... A fantastic week of fall walleye fishing. Walleyes in good numbers across the south shore of Lake of the Woods. Most popular depths are 14 - 24'. Anchoring up with a jig with frozen shiner is the ticket. Jig colors in gold, pink, glow, orange or a combo of these colors working well. Strong numbers of walleyes and saugers being caught. Jumbo perch and pike in the mix. Walleyes also being caught around Knight and Bridges islands and structure off of Long Point and Rocky Point. On the Rainy River... Strong reports this past week and weekend of good numbers of walleyes along with some big walleyes taken. Fish in spots with current breaks from mouth of river to Birchdale. There is still a strong current and fish are congregating in areas with current breaks, often closer to shore, behind points or holes in river. 7-16' a good start depending upon the spot. Very good reports this week. Have jigs up to 1.5 oz if in the main channel, lighter jigs in slack water. Many personal best walleyes and sturgeon this week. Up at the NW Angle... Walleyes in traditional fall spots. Neck down areas, points and mouths of bays continue to hold good fish. Jigging continues to be the go to method. Big black crappie and jumbo perch bite happening also. Traditional fall muskie bite continues strong, lots of fish boated.

    Tailgate Seal Kits

    Anyone ever find one that works? My truck topper light wiring got corroded from the salt spray coming in during the winter.
  11. Fished zero hours this weekend, but did get the dock raised and took care of a bunch of other projects. Snow shovels are out for my next trip! I'm hoping to find open water in November for a final trip, but know that it's not likely!
  12. I had similar experience to everyone else. I found my hook up percentage was a little better with jig and pike suckers then rigs and light northern. Lots of skinned minnows. Even if I give them a long time they wouldn’t have the whole minnow in their mouth. Most fish in 28-30, but did real well in 40' hole also. Lots of husky eaters and a fat 26. not many small fish. It’s been a great fall.
  13. Its honestly probably not a great time of year to target bass in the Rum right now. The current is super fast and the water is dark and cold and murky. I usually do it in July and August when the levels are lower and its warmer out. Basically, when fishing in the lakes starts to slow down in the heat of summer, that's when river fishing is good. That's when they are the most aggressive - we catch most of our fish on topwaters. Very few walleye, occasional pike. My biggest this season was 20 inches. The further north you go, the more shallower-type rocky habitat you will encounter. I use a jon boat so we don't drift as fast as a canoe or kayak, but the stability offers us a platform we can stand in. It won't be an issue now, but the deer flies out there in the summer can be completely unbearable. Those things are merciless at times, nothing repels them, and they'll take a bite right out of your face.
  14. Weather was beautiful yesterday. Wasn't going to fish but couldn't stand it sittin in house. Went after church and fished five hours. 15 bass and two pike. nothing huge. Nothing trolling 10" Grandma - all on Lunker City Swimmin Ribsters and similar but larger unknown soft plastic.
  15. Well we just finished our annual fall trip on Cass Lake over MEA. Water temps hung around 48-50 degrees. Walleye fishing was tough as we often could visually see them swimming up shallow at night but they didn't bite real well. What we lacked in quantity and we made up for with quality though. Several eyes between 20-28 inches. We did manage to get quite a few nice eaters as well. Here's some pics of the nicer ones. We did really well on perch and kept a bunch of 10-13" for eating. Found these in 8-14 fow and caught in fathead, jigging raps and plastics. Also got into some really nice crappies in basin/hole areas. These fish are deep so it's a catch and keep situation. At night the eyes are easily shore accessible. We saw one 15 ft out of the harbor we were using that was easily 30" long and in less than 2 feet of water.

    That is fantastic!
  18. I grew up in the Bethel area so I fished the river a lot. Best walleye fishing north of princeton and best smallmouth fishing I've had was south of St Francis. One can catch them from Mille lacs to the Mississippi river
  19. We fished Thursday-Sunday as well. Didn't do fantastic but ate fish all 3 mornings and all 4 of us went home with a limit. Kept 8 on Thursday and Saturday and 7 on Friday. I didn't fish Sunday morning but they picked up a few more then too. Size was very good. Most of our keepers were 15-19 inch fish. Got a 23 and a super fat 26" for slot fish. The 26 had to be an 8 pound fish-never seen one that fat on vermilion. Also ran into a 37" northern and a couple nice bass and perch. Thursday and Friday was exclusively an afternoon bite for us. All keepers came after 2:30pm. Saturday they bit all day. Lots of skinned minnows from short bites, probably 3:1 missed to caught ratio. We did most of our damage in 26-30 feet off the edges of reefs in big bay and Frazer. Tried to drift or troll around 0.5-0.7mph. Usually like to go slower but wind made it tough at times. A longer leader on the lindy seemed to be the key. About 5 feet long compared to the usual 3. Couple of the guys threw a spinner on and that was the ticket at times as well. Not fast enough to spin but I think the fish were really hugging the bottom and maybe a little flash or stirring the mud up got them to go. Also found light biters but the larger the minnow the harder the hit. Ystore was out of pike suckers Saturday so we got light northern instead and the walleyes were smacking those hard. All in all another successful trip. Somehow the October weather cooperated!
  20. Last week
  21. Trout/Wabana were really nice lakes, the one and only time I got to fish them 2 years ago. Would love to make it back up there some day. Too many places, too little time!
