  5. Hey all, just moved back to MN where I grew up after living in the PNW for a long while. I became addicted to fishing rivers and streams out there and have started to check out the offerings in the NW section of the state as of yesterday’s opener. Wondering if anyone has experience in this area and can give me some pointers or just tell me if I’m wasting my time since that’s what I’m wondering right now since I didn’t find any signs of fish. I’m using a spinning rod with Mepp’s and Panther Martin style spinners and went through a bunch of color combos. I started yesterday morning at the Clearw
  6. Someone had to kick things off. I caught some shrimp at the grocery store over the weekend. I'm hoping to see some spawning walleye this weekend. Who knows where they will be in a month when we are all allowed to actually fish for them!

    Rush River Report

    Made my long awaited return to the Rush yesterday. Never got a WI license last year, so it was good to be back! Beautiful weather! But conditions could not have been worse for trout! Water was lowest I’ve ever seen! And gin clear, without a single cloud in the sky. We were fortunate to catch the 3 we did. Way too many people out for my liking. But our gear worked, and our boots didn’t leak so it was a great day as far as I’m concerned.
  12. On the south end... Ice fishing is all finished up on the main lake. The focus is on back bays for big pike and areas of open water on the lake for walleyes. The pike season is open year round on LOW and the Rainy River. 3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one over 40" allowed. Anglers are allowed a limit of walleyes and saugers on the lake, but catch and release only on Four Mile Bay and the Rainy River through April 14. A limit of walleyes and saugers is a combined limit of 6 fish with up to 4 being walleyes. Walleyes 19.5-28.0 inches must be released with one allowed

    White suckers

    White suckers are on the move in some of the local rivers. Night crawler on a #6 hook and a 1/4 oz slip sinker brought many to shore the last two days. Crazy light biters.
  14. On the south end... Resorts have pulled off fish houses for the season. There was some ice fishing happening this past weekend but ice conditions are deteriorating quickly. Big pike and some nice walleyes were caught. Big pike are setting up adjacent shallow water areas of bays, streams and shorelines setting up to spawn. Soon those open water areas will turn on. The pike season on LOW is open year round. The limit is 3 pike. Pike between 30 - 40 inches must be released. One pike allowed over 40 inches. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River is open and numerous boat ramp
  15. Is the special 40 inch min pike reg for this lake gone? I only see a 10 per day sunfish limit listed. Thanks
  16. On the south end... Most resorts have pulled off fish houses for the season with a few resorts adjacent to better ice conditions still ice fishing. Big pike are active and staging adjacent to spawning areas. Most fish are being caught on tip ups with live sucker minnows or a dead bait like a tullibee. Most pike angling taking place in 5-15' of water. Walleye anglers finding fish 15 - 30' of water. A morning / evening bite shallower, walleyes and saugers during the day in deeper water. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River is starting to open! Some small boats pushing over s

    One last time

    Eyeguy and I decided one last trip was in order to close the ice season out. We found decent ice conditions N of St Cloud within an hour- hour and half drive, though even here shorlines are really looking rough, and the snow they got definitely didn't help much. Anyway, we started drilling and catching in 13-15 ft of water, over the tops of the weeds. Problem was, the crappies were 10 inches on top end.... So we started drilling, and drilling untill we were pulling up weeds with the auger. This is where we ended up finding the big ones . The Best area was right in the weeds,vor i
  18. On the south end... Lots of ice fishing is still happening in some areas while other areas are dealing with ice upheavals due to temperature fluctuations. Some parts of the lake are very accessible, but It is a good idea to call ahead or watch the Facebook page of the resort or outfitter you are fishing with for any updates. Mixed reports. Some catching lots of fish with quite a bit of sorting for keepers happening while others are catching one here, one there. Some nice slot fish (between 19.5 - 28.0 inches) being caught and released. Also some trophy walleyes (28 - 33 inches) caugh

    Stick A Fork In It

    Just did a 6 day marathon of ice fishing in all parts of the state, and from I witnessed on a bunch of different lakes ice conditions are changing rapidly and are unsafe in the S and certain areas in the central parts of the state. Fished the Atwater area lakes couple times. ON these lakes there were areas of open water thin ice, to ice so black it could open any day. I personally advise no travel in the southern region area at all. Central MN still has walkable ice on a few lakes especially one of my favs in particular Osakis . It still held my wheeler the other day but any day could be w
  20. We’re heading up to Lutsen area for the first week of April and I was looking for fishing ideas with kids. Options I was considering: guided ice fishing if the ice is still decent, panfish on smaller lakes or walleye on Sag or shore fishing on superior. I go up steelhead fishing every spring but that’s typically early for upper shore- maybe casting around river mouths? I also haven’t done any shore fishing off break walls so I wouldn’t know where to start- if that time of year is worth it or would hold kids attention, depths to try, etc. They do love climbing around rocks and beaches on sh
  21. Just a heads up. Ice conditions, and specifically access points have deteriorated rapidly since last weekend. I think our days of driving on to all but a few of our area lakes has come to an end for the season. I have been spending my week in the Annandale and Richmond areas. Most of the access points that are on hills with runoff or have south facing shoreline are gonna take a beating first. The good news is, there is still plenty of ice on the lakes, although they are starting to get sloppy..... and the panfish are starting their yearly push toward the shallows. Stay safe and go
  22. Anyone been by the Big Trout landing up by Cross Lake, MN in the past week. Wonder how it's holding up?
  23. On the south end... Fish houses can be on the ice through March 31st. Walleyes are open through April 14th, pike never close. A good week of fishing despite a number of temperature changes. A variety of walleyes, saugers, perch, pike, tullibee and eelpout being caught in 29-33 feet. Jigging spoons with a glow stick or rattles tipped with a piece of minnow for the jigging line. On the deadstick, a colored hook with a live fathead has been effective. Electronics are helpful to show suspended fish. When suspended fish are spotted, reel up quickly before fish swims through. When your lure
  24. I am new to this site and was intrigued by some of the conversations. Sounds like a good time gathering in Richmond, wish I could be there but I am in Missouri and wanting to come up for one more ice fishing trip this coming weekend. ( Mar 5-6, 2021) I fished at Cedar Lake in Faribault with my son about a 3 weeks ago and had a blast. I can sneak away one more time this weekend but would like to know what the ice conditions look like now. Can any of you offer me any suggestions as to the thickness and conditions? Looking forward to one more trip to MN this season. (We just do not have good
