  1. On the south end... Some good walleye fishing this week. As many summer weeks, it was helpful to be versatile. On the big lake, sometimes you have to play the wind, meaning, you have to be flexible where you fish. The fish were there and some great catches this week. Most fishing in 25-33 feet. Some are still jigging. Frozen shiners and leeches were both good this week. With water temps in the mid to upper 60's, leeches and crawlers will heat up. Spinners (otherwise called harnesses) with minnows, leeches or crawlers were all effective this week. It is good to mix up colo
  2. Hey guys, going up to nine mile lake camping and noticed that Echo lake next door has Atlantic Salmon. Any tips on catching one? Is it even possible this time of year? Any help would make me and the little one super happy. Thanks, Andy
  3. Just got back from our annual Grand Marais trip! I don’t know, maybe I’m just getting old and cranky, but over the last several times I’ve been up there, I’ve been liking the town less and less. Getting too artsy, hippy, liberal for me Also sad to see the northshore getting absolutely “loved to death”! Has totally lost it’s up north feel. Anyway, enough ranting. Fishing was terrible! Numbers and quality were way down. Aside from 2 smallies that barely scratched 17 inches (both were skinny), not even any medium bass were caught. Only caught a few small pike, and 1 walleye. As
  4. On the south end... Walleyes were active this week. Some warm weather hit the north country and the fish responded nicely. Jigging with a live fathead minnow or frozen shiner vertically jigged or drifting spinners with a minnow or crawler in 15-29 feet of water has been the ticket for most walleye anglers. Snelled spinners or harnesses work well all summer into the fall and also is a really good way to cover water. They are also versatile as they can be fished shallow to deep. 1.0 - 1.25 mph is a good speed, as long as the spinner is spinning. Colors to start out with... hamme
  5. Anyone been out to Elephant lake lately? Water level up/down? Having any luck? The East Coast Boys will be heading up this Friday and on the Lake by Saturday (27th year), don't worry Russ & BR we will save a few for you (kinda like the backrow boys)................
  6. Finally got out Thursday morning to wet a line. Pretty slow. Got 1 bass, 1 northern and a big catfish. First time getting a cat there. Pulled like crazy and for some reason my dragged decided not to work properly. Luckily I didn’t break the line. Lots of weeds floating at access. Had to do a lot of cleaning when I loaded up. Big thank you to the young lady checking for AIS. She helped get the weeds off, then I power washed it at home. Good luck everyone.
  7. On the south end... Some excellent walleye fishing this week. Guides did a nice job of being versatile a couple of days when the wind really blew. Jigging with a live fathead minnow or frozen shiner vertically jigged in 14-29 feet of water has been the ticket for most walleye anglers. Never discount trolling. Some good reports of trolling crankbaits with very good results. A great way to cover water where walleyes are living. Mix up cranks with different shapes, sizes, wobbles and colors until you get dialed in. Good to have everyone in the boat with a different lure to start out

    Apple River

    I only had a very short amount of time to fish this morning, so I went to the Apple River. Even though it’s pretty close, I never go here for the simple fact, the fishing is no good! I’m just amazed at the lack of fish holding structure this particular stretch has (Star Prairie). There’s no riffles, pools, boulders, undercut banks, nothing! It’s just fast water! I did catch 1 little rainbow, and lost 2 others. So it was nice to see at least a little sign of life in Apple.
  9. Looking to head out kayak bass fishing with the gal here in the next couple weeks on lake independence. I have never been on the lake and would love some help to get her a few fish. Bass only. Thanks
  10. On the south end... A great week of walleye fishing. Jigging with a frozen shiner vertically jigged in 14-25 feet of water has been the ticket for most walleye anglers. Some anglers locating fish shallow, especially in current areas or on a wind blown shoreline. There are also good numbers of fish being caught anchored up in deeper water. Different schools of walleyes are often tuned in to different bait, hence, not all walleyes are doing the same thing. It is good to trust your electronics, try an area and if no luck, move on. Jig colors, gold, orange, glow, pink, chartreus
  11. Wow haven't been here for a while and logged in to say hello to all of my FM family and catch up on some of the forums. . Was hoping to see some nice eye pics, some detailed reports, hot tips, most especially in the center parts of the state. To my amazement very very little activity. Glad to c the Northern Vermillion guys keeping things rolling. I guess i'll throw one up . Had a group of guys fish a couple lakes opening wknd in the Atwater area. The bite was pretty slow early but we dealt with some stained water conditions. As the sun poked her way through the clouds we finally dialed the
  12. I am going to Lake Kabetogama in late June and wanted to get on some really big fish. Do any of you know a spot or lures to use and where for some monsters? Thank you!
  13. On the south end... What a beautiful opener. Lots of fish were caught despite the beautiful weather being sunny and calm! No complaints. As predicted, the go to bait for walleyes and saugers was a jig and frozen shiner vertically jigged in 14-20 feet of water. Many caught limits and most caught walleyes for a hearty fish fry. A healthy mix of small fish, eaters, slots and trophies reported. Jig colors, gold, orange, glow, pink, chartreuse or a combo of these colors. Some reported trolling crankbaits for the opener with success. Crankbaits trolled slowly, 1.5 - 2.0 mph
  14. On the south end... On the lake, the focus is on the May 15, 2021 Fishing Opener for walleyes. There is much optimism as fishing in the Rainy River this spring was excellent and reports of good fishing from the spring season on the lake was also good. The limit for walleyes and saugers during the open season is a combined limit of six fish, up to four of the six can be walleyes. There is a slot limit in which all walleyes 19.5 - 28.0 inches must be released. One can be kept over 28 inches. Pike anglers are still catching fish in back bays. The pike season is open year-round on
  15. I will be in the area camping in a couple of weeks. Wondering if these two lakes are any good for shore fishing for kids. Been trying to do research but there hasn't been much update on the lakes! Would love to catch a few trout for the kids to enjoy. Any tip/advice would be great thanks!!
  16. Illegal entry into CANADA. If you fish the boundary waters Minnesota and Canada. and you usually cross imaginary boundary between Canada and Minnesota DO NOT DO THAT THIS YEAR. I am goin go trip to Crane Lake 22nd-29th of May 2021. Looked into buying non resident 8 day to cross boundary to fish in Canada have been doing it for years. Well if you cross that boundary today your truck, boat, trailer will be confiscated and you and anyone else in boat with will be detained. Also there are HUGE fines with this criminal entry illegal entry into Canada. If you have your doubts you can call U.S. Bord
  17. On the south end... Pike anglers catching fish in back bays. Deadbait on a quick strike rig under a bobber, spoons, spinnerbaits and crankbaits are the go to presentations. The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River. The pike limit is 3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one over 40" allowed. Most practice catch and release with a nice photo on big fish, and there are a lot of big pike being caught. On the Rainy River... Sturgeon anglers looking to keep a sturgeon have through May 7th. After that catch and release kicks in again. Catch and rele
  18. Anybody been out or heard any water temps on the Le Homme Dieu Chain? The weather has been so up and down, kind of curious where they are at. Thanks much!!
  19. On the south end... Most attention right now is with sturgeon and pike with anglers looking forward to the May 15th walleye opener. The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River. Backwater areas and back bays are all over LOW and the Rainy River and are where pike are being caught. Deadbait on a quick strike rig under a bobber, spoons, spinnerbaits and crankbaits are all working. The pike limit is 3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one over 40" allowed. Most practice catch and release with a nice photo on big fish, and there are a lot of big pike being c
  20. On the south end... Lake of the Woods is ice free! Walleye anglers are looking ahead to the MN Fishing Opener on May 15th. Based on the big fish in the Rainy River this spring, there is a lot of excitement! The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River. Backwater areas and back bays are where pike spawning activity is taking place. The pike limit is 3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one over 40" allowed. Most practice catch and release with a nice photo on big fish, and there are a lot of big pike being caught. On the Rainy River... The spring wal
  21. 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
  22. Has anyone been on the water of areas lakes? Kinda curious what the water temps are hovering around?
  23. On the south end... The lake is still ice covered with big stretches of open water which is expanding daily. Anglers fishing the lake are fishing in front of the Lighthouse Gap where the Rainy River enters LOW. 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 during the spring walleye season which lasts through April 14. The walleye season opens again on May 15th. Pike Fishing. Open water is available in the back bays such as various Four Mile Bay, Bostic Creek, Zippel Bay and backwaters on the Rainy River
