  1. Hit the ice for the first time today about 6 inches of ice and lots of slush 3-5 inches deep. The snitch handled the work load with amazing results. The busy end was the smallest pug bug with a maki mino the crappies were racing up am crushing it. The gills would come up slowly but would eat it. Had a 3 to 4 pound walleye break me off in the top of the hole.
  2. Anxious for ice fishing to start once I am done deer hunting. Couldn't find any records of when Lake Vermilion ices-over (Big Bay freezes completely). I am predicting ice-over the morning of November 14th. Any other predictions?

  4. going to be heading up that way the 20th of aug and its been pretty quiet here in the deer river forum. my intent is to fish bowstring, maybe sand and some other lakes in the area. can anyone give me a little heads up on how fishing is?? thinkin even of dragging my 2 teenage granddaughters along can anyone tell me about dora lake. been there once, would like to maybe try it again. bugs still bad????
  5. Went out to check some ice on one of my lakes that seems to freeze over before most. 2-3". Still early but maybe another week and ice fishing has begun for me. We'll see. Anyone else getting excited. Now only if cold weather would hurry up and come!

    NOAA's December

    Looks like NOAA national weather has modified their colder than normal winter with December being quite a bit warmer. May be a struggle to get good ice by Christmas especially Southern two thirds of the state. Getting above average snow (as forecasted) will also hamper ice build. Hope they are wrong.
  7. Has anyone been out to check ice on any lakes in area. Heard there was 2-3 inches on strand.
  8. On the south end... As we approach Thanksgiving, thin ice covers back bays and a portion of the big lake, otherwise known as Big Traverse Bay. Roughly half of the lake is covered in ice with the rest open water. Ice anglers are hoping for cold nights combined with low wind and no snow to create a good early sheet of ice. Every year is different based on Mother Nature of course, but normally resorts will be able to get their smaller fish houses, called day houses, out around December 10th. When the ice thickens, resorts will begin marking trails where there is the best ice. Stay tuned...
  9. 2020- Lake Vermilion Fishing Reports - Click Here. Click Above for 2020 Fishing Reports↑↑↑↑ Lake Vermilion Fishing Reports from 2011 to 2020 are below ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓ I thought it was about time to post how the first 10 days of the season have gone for my wife and myself. Things started out pretty slow for us. We found the fish virtually everywhere we expected them with sonar but only a scattered "biter" here and there. The bite has really picked up for us since about last Thursday. We are finding a more consistent bite in specific areas(as opposed to here and there) and the depths have
  10. Yup, I started it. Seeing people post about water temps in the low 40s, and knowing that there will be a lot of cold temps this week....we may see the small bays freeze. I have a vested interest as I'd like to make it up next weekend, but have strong doubts that our small bay will be ice-free. Let's hear those reports as the lake begins to change.

  12. On the south end... Unseasonably warm weather the first week of November saw a fair number of anglers on the water. Once the lake cleaned up a bit as the waters were dirtied up from a big blow, good walleye reports started coming in from various areas. Anchored up and jigging with a minnow in anywhere from 7 - 26' of water has been the goto. Walleyes are setting up in early ice locations nicely. Some big fall pike being caught by walleye anglers jigging. Jumbo perch in the mix with walleyes. On the Rainy River... Some very good reports on the river as of recent. Four Mile Bay,
  13. Had anyone tried and had luck finding worms in late fall. For some reason we have a worm shortage, not I've place in town has had then for weeks
  14. For 2019-2020 St Louis River Fishing Reports - Click Here. Now that the weather is drying out a little and the bay and the river are starting to clear out a little I headed out yesterday morning to do some fishing. Crawler harnesses with yellow and fluorescent blades and fire tiger worked the best. All fish were caught anywhere from 4 feet to 7 feet of water. Hit every flat I could find from Spirit Lake all the way down to the bay. The fishing picked up when the wind picked up. Water temperature were in the low 60s. Nothing fast and furious just steady
  15. Hello everyone. I have not seen or heard from anyone on the form so I thought I would post some pictures of opening weekend on rainy lake, May 16 and 17. Water is about 18” low from July levels and water temperature is 56 degrees as of Sunday. The walleyes and bass were caught on jig and minnows in 8’- 12’ of water.
  16. On the south end... Dress warm and catch walleyes! Some even bring their Mr. Heater in the boat. High temps this week in the low 40's. The water temps are in the 30's and the walleyes are staged in many early ice areas. Good reports on the lake with a mix of small fish, eaters and some big fish. Consider areas on the lake such as the Lighthouse Gap, Morris Point Gap, Zippel Bay and Long Point. Good reports in all of those areas. Walleyes in 7 - 26' of water. Most anglers anchored up and jigging with an emerald shiner. Pink, gold, glow and green jigs working well. Pike are active in
  17. What’s the status of small lakes in the arrowhead? I’m going to Grand Marais this weekend, and the forecast looks pretty miserable I have a feeling I’m going to be busting through ice to launch my boat. But is it at all possible that some of these little designated trout lakes could be locked up completely?

  19. Just wondering if anyone else that fishes the Root (especially below Lanesboro) has ever patterned or had any luck targeting sauger/eyes. This is my first year trying for them after hearing whispers for years and I've been surprised with my results. So far I've caught 5 sauger and 4 eyes out of the Root this year, a 17 inch Sauger and a 22 inch eye being my biggest so far. I know the river is a lot better known for trout but if anybody else has had any luck targeting other species I'd love to share reports or tactics.
  20. Hey guys, Looking for some opinions from those of you who fish the lake consistently. We take a fall trip every year and have been on the cass chain the last 5 years. Planning on heading to Vermillion this year. We have two dates in mind being either the 18-25 of Sept or the 9-16th of October. Love to be somewhere in the middle but it wont work this year. We will fish Smallies/wallys the majority of the time and planning to stay on the east side. Would any of you suggest one of those times over the other? I am seeing the current weather up that way and its making me a bit n
  21. On the south end... The traditional fall pattern of a jig bite for walleyes continues on the big lake. There are various schools of walleyes located across the south shore. A good place to start is 9-15' or 22-29' adjacent to rivers, creeks and bays. Anchor up, jig over the side of the boat with a frozen shiner or fathead. Anglers reporting going through numbers of small walleyes and saugers to catch nicer eaters. Decent walleye reports also from Four Mile Bay in 10-15'. Pike are active in bays and along shorelines. On the Rainy River... Anglers catching nice walleyes in the rive
  22. DNR has a proposal to remove the dam on the Grindstone River, in Hinckley. The reservoir, which serves absolutely no purpose, is about 27 acres, and is nothing but mud and silt. I’m in favor of any and all dam removals! They’re taking comments via e-mail until November 12. If you want to write the DNR, subject e-mail “Grindstone EIS” to [email protected]
  23. So the weather really tanked!! I was hoping to fish until November before winterizing the boat. Anyone been out...either reservoirs or up Hwy 53? Any idea of when landings start pulling docks...probably on DNR site huh?
  24. Ice Report 1/14/2020. We are now at 15-17 inches everywhere that I have staked. At this time I will not be expanding our road system until after the latest snownommi rolls thru. CAUTION a heave has been developing off the point just to the east of us and with today's wind has pushed up and flooded. I found as few as 6 inches of ice in that area. STAY AWAY from that point.
  25. Please post your fishing reports or questions to fishing reports here.. Everyone feel free to chime in with fishing reports, ice conditions , questions about the fishing etc. Thanks
