  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. Fished a few spots on the Horseshoe chain this afternoon pretty slow yet surface water temps were around 35 degrees. Water levels are up and plenty of bottom content floating in some of the channels and bays. Felt great to get back on some open water and use the long Rods again. Plenty of boats out there running around.
  3. Really cant wait for some of these Regulations to be put into Place on Some lakes. Way overdue IMO. Please when these meetings are formed lets all try and make it to some and give some honest quality input. Even if you are against some of the New regulation limit changes being talked about. We all need to come together and figure out someway to protect our Trophy Panfish. So all of us and future generations can enjoy the future!

  5. We plan to search for some coho, lakers, chinook, or any fish willing to bite this weekend. I think we will head out of McQuade. Any reports yet? I've seen boats, but not much in the report arena.

    Mine pit lake trout

    Hello! New to this but I come across a lot of these threads and wanted to give it a try! I’ve done some fishing on canisteo mine pit for lake trout and have had some good days and very slow days. Was wondering if anybody fishes the taconite side for lake trout in the winter? When I’m out there I never see any traffic out that way so I’m curious if anybody has had success! Thanks Mojo88
  7. Just checked the ice this afternoon and Shoe has 2.5" of ice and is 100% ice covered with some river current areas. Summer access is no longer open. I will be starting to ice fish as soon as I am done deer hunting in front of my house. I predict a limit of walleyes first night out. Don
  8. Any people on here still go after smelt?. Sure some of the old timers on here did it in the past. Was pretty popular back in the day. We did it for years took a revamped school bus up with a crew guys every year. Was quite the experience. Plenty of adult beverages campfires smelt nets and total mayham. Saw some pretty crazy stuff happen up there guys slipping in the riveretc and luckily grabbing a fellow smelters net to get pulled in before they go swept all the way down. The yell of smelt smelt was the dinner bell to start scooping when they started running. We always hit the Lester river hit Grandmas first then out to the river to dip away and hopefully not drown. Brought buckets back some years. Good times now I just hit a few smelt frys and enjoy the tame life
  9. Need to get out for a while. Any fishing being done on Cedar Lake in New Prague.
  10. 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 been 23'-32'. All of our fish the last couple of days including today came from steep shoreline breaks with the optimum depth being 27'. Bottom varies from mud to gravel to rock. With the exception of one "leech" fish, we have caught everything on rainbows. Backtrolling and controlled drift has been our presentation. The biggest walleye we have caught so far has been a 24". We have caught very few slot fish so far this spring. 14"-15" fish have been far and away the most numerous and we have caught a sprinkling of 16" and over fish. I have stayed with my bottom bouncer rig and my wife has used the traditional Lindy rig with a no-snag sinker. By the way, they're just kidding when they call those things "no-snag". The dock bite has really picked up also. We go down for an hour or so in the evening and have a ball watching the bobbers go down. Most of our bite is before we even turn on the bobber lights! Water temperatures today were 52.3 degrees in the far east end of Big Bay, 56.6 degrees at Moose Island, and 58.9 degrees at Banana Island. It appears fishing will keep getting better, but then again, what do I know? I'm retired! Don't think for a second that this is all fun ! Good Fishing, MarkB
  11. So me and a buddy of mine are thinking about stocking a gravel pit we own with suckers. Mainly white suckers but we’ll happily go with other species!! My question is this: Do sucker eggs NEED a constant flow of water to hatch? Or will they be fine in a gravel pit or any lake/pond that doesn’t have any flow coming in or out? This will make or break our plans for the pit, thanks in advance!!!
  12. Perhaps we should call this the COVID - 19 fishing report. As you can imagine, some really cool annual traditions with Mother Nature are happening right now around Lake of the Woods. With the current times, other than some local anglers fishing in their own backyard where they have private access, things are pretty quiet. Let's get through this chapter and look ahead as the walleyes are definitely waiting, willing and able! As many of you have read, in response to the COVID - 19 situation, the City of Baudette has closed it's two public access points on the Rainy River, Koochiching County has closed their four access points to the Rainy River and Lake of the Woods County has also temporarily closed their access points. These closures are temporary in nature and are being reviewed often. Kooch County will review again April 14th which is the last day of the walleye season on LOW and the Rainy River. We want to express our sincere appreciation and thanks for all who come up to the Lake of the Woods area throughout the year. Our community and small businesses are very tourism focused and dependent. This is a tough time for many for a variety of reasons. We look forward to getting this chapter behind us and creating wonderful memories with you again in the near future. Be safe and thank you. On the south end... Ice conditions this March have held very well. As mentioned, low amount of traffic due to the times. Anglers out have been catching big pike as is traditional this time of year as well as walleyes and saugers. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River is starting to open with a few local anglers with private access getting on the open water. As you can imagine, some big walleyes in the river. The spring walleye season goes through April 14th and will not be available to most this year. Looking forward to sturgeon season and the MN fishing opener May 9th! Up at the NW Angle... A few locals still ice fishing. Walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch and an occasional pike or eelpout in the mix. Looking forward to open water.

  16. For Current Forest Lake-Hinckley-Lindstrom-Pine City-Rush City Fishing Reports - Click Here. Let's see your pics and fishing reports here. Post em up. Reply to Topic - Yellow Button. Spent the evening out on Forest, Lake's 1 and 3, and it was tough!!!!! Didn't even manage a bite. Tried the weed edges and transition lines with nothing. Looks like the weed line is around 11-13 feet from everything I could find. My normal spots didn't produce anything. Board is slow, anyone else out fishing on forest?

    Rainy River closed?

    I heard from a buddy that there will be no fishing allowed on the river this spring. Any truth to that? I think it is a good idea otherwise there will be people coming up in droves as usual. Stay in your house and say some prayers. I am stuck in my house down here in Texas and hope to eventually get back up North. Canada border closed so I couldn't hit my favorite spots on Rainy Lake anyway.
  18. Today on West Rush, in a smaller bay. I Stepped on a unseen drain hole or enlarged old fishing hole today. 1 leg went all the way thru. Luckily other leg and i stayed on top. I was traveling where I knew it was only 4-5 feet deep. All ice I drilled was 13-16 inches but soft. Hot shower and clean undies never felt so good. lol. Be safe everyone!

  20. So I am looking for advice on successful approaches on opening weekend at Osakis. I am new to fishing Osakis and I am not asking for you spots, more what you use and types of water. I have fished many times early in the year at Otter Tail. Early on it is almost exclusively a shiner bite typically on dropoffs near shallow water. Are shiner the tickets at Osakis as well? Or are there other baits that work early in the year? Also any common depths to try etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  21. 2020 Current Fishing Reports - Click Here. Show us your pics. thought I should start this topic up for the up coming ice season. with the recent warm weather, it may be a another week or more for safe ice travel. please be safe out there.
  22. First pic is from April 1 2017 in the kayak. Second pic is April 21 2018 on 18 inches of ice. Same lake. Looks like 2020 will be like 2017.

    Panfish Pics

    Lets see some pics My best gill so far this winter. Still looking for the beast!
  24. I checked it on Sunday about 25 feet of ice by landing. If anyone drives by could you let me know when the landing is open. Might go here first if possible sometimes the crappies and sunfish will be in the bay there. I could use some yummy fillets. Thank You!
