  1. Has anyone been fishing the Bay City Flats lately? Or up near The Vermillion near the dam? Thinking of hitting the river this weekend. Heard it's pretty slow. But beats yard work.
  2. Hey, I'm heading up to Ely over the 4th of July and plan on fishing Shagawa for some walleye. I've fished it a number of times in the winter and done pretty well. Is the summer bite typically okay?
  3. 6.20.16 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report What a week we had up at the Angle! The weather has gone from one extreme to the next. A few days of sunshine mixed with days of rain, and some heavy rainfall at that! Aside from the up and down weather conditions, we are still catching fish. Lots of limits being taken and a few larger fish being caught as well. Early in the week the fishing was slower due to a mayfly hatch, but has steadily improved over the last few days. On the Minnesota side, gold spinners with bottom bouncers and crawlers have been turning fish near Four Blocks, Little
  4. Selling 12x12 Muskie, Walleye, Bass decals. $14.99. Perfect for the boat or truck. The decals are printed on 6mm vinyl, UV protected and the art work is original. Message me if interested. Thanks.
  5. Anybody get out this weekend and have some success? Wanted to hit Superior but the wind and temps kept me home,
  6. So where is everyone thinking of chasing walleyes? I am thinking Green or the Rum after dark, because I will trying to whack a turkey during the day time. Best of luck and be safe.
  7. I'm not a biologist by any means, but I'm thinking they still want to reproduce (and possibly try) right? Or does the biological make up of the lake cause them to not even bother to try? Is it a case of limited breading areas in the lake, in addition to the chemical makeup, predators, etc..? I'm guessing they just try and aren't successful. Are there any anecdotes from spring pan-fisherman of seeing/catching walleyes in the shallows during typical spawning time (theoretically before the walleye opener happens)? Thoughts?
  8. I am very excited to be speaking to the folks of Rochester, MN for the first time ever. It is lone overdue. Walleye University has been around since 2000 and finally made it here. Because of advertising rules I am not allowed to share the discounts attendees will receive. I will say this, the class will more than pay for itself with the $20 gift card and the deals from Berkley. I hope to see you there.

  11. Just moved to South Minneapolis (three blocks from Minnehaha Park), and was curious what are some decent lakes around the metro area to catch some fish. I'm not picky. I don't need monsters. I'm fine catching the dinks. But I'm not from Minnesota, so my knowledge of Metro Lakes is limited. The woman and I have been out to Waconia and then tried Nokomis a few weeks ago, too. Just not sure how to fish some of these lakes or where to find info, like lake maps, structure, etc. I know a good fisherman keeps great secrets, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
  12. As the weather warmed up, so did the ice fishing. Ice roads are allowing half-ton trucks onto the lake when not towing a trailer. Ice averages 14-17”. As always, stay on marked resort trails and talk with your resort about ice conditions in their area. Fishing in 24-34’ seems to be the best. Glow colors remain hot and the two way punch of jigging and dead stick remains the go to plan of attack. Ice electronics are key in catching more fish. Walleyes and saugers caught primarily in late morning with flurries in afternoon. Lots of nice saugers in the mix throughout the basin. The Rainy
  13. The ice conditions continue to improve. There are still some thin spots so just be careful the east end of the lake has been really good the west and has been pretty spotty as usual but when you find the fish you find good fish.
  14. I think everyone knows what's wrong with this. Since it's snowing in Roseau I figured I'd check Sportsman's Dock Cam. Low and behold a guy kept his ice fishing weekend on track but brought the boat. Depressing and rare at the same time.

    Ice Fishing Season

    The DNR has announced quotas for the ice fishing season, regulations coming forth soon. http://news.dnr.state.mn.us/2015/10/19/mille-lacs-winter-harvest-cap-set-ice-fishing-regulation-decision-by-end-of-month/#more-17141 #AsExpected

    A Change of Season

    I was fishing with my bride on Labor Day. She was watching docks come in as many people were wrapping up cabin season on French Lake. She was lamenting the fact that the summer was coming to a close. I reminded her that this is our season. September promises the start of fall colors, better fishing and football. Ok, that last one didn't impress her one bit. I have already found that fish are more aggressive. The area lakes are filled with hungry fish. They are smacking jigs tipped with fatheads - orange seemed to be the color yesterday. No longer are they picky and I can usually put a
  17. Governor Dayton is not going to wait for the fall surveys before declaring that the walleye ice fishing season will go on. http://www.startribune.com/dayton-says-they-ll-be-a-walleye-season-this-winter-on-mille-lacs/326440461/
  18. The DNR announced today that it has begun implementing several concrete steps aimed at improving the Mille Lacs Lake walleye population, while building a closer working relationship with the Mille Lacs community. “Mille Lacs is an incredibly important fishery for … Full Story Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
  19. Just got back from a week of camping and fishing on Rainy Lake. While the bite was not fast and furious it was consistant and good. We seemed to find fish scattered from 6 FOW all the way to 35 FOW with the reefs holding most of the fish. Locating and staying on a school and waiting them out seemed to work best rather that chase after the hot bite. We mainly fished jigs with crawlers, shiners and leeches but did do some live bait rigging. Neither tactic seemed to out produce the other. They seemed to show preference to one of the baits for a while and then would shut off. Changing up bait

    Basin tactics 2, leadcore

    One tactic this time of year that tends to excel in larger rivers and lakes is trolling leadcore line for walleyes. Basic tackle is a large capacity level wind reel and a 7-9' medium action trolling rod. I recommend a trolling rod as the taper is made to troll nonstretch lines like leadcore or superbraids. A line counter reel can be very helpful to replicate your presentation when targeting suspended fish but leadcore line is colored every 30' and you can get by with letting out line by how many colors you have out as well. Leadcore line is a dacron sheath around a fine lead filament and t
  21. This week we have had reports of fishing being good all over the lake. On the north side near Crowduck and Little Oak Island they are pulling spinners. The walleye are responding to a hammered gold and leech presentation. Drift or troll if needed from 25-30 feet of water. Towards the west near Zipple Bay there has been a large school of keeper sized fish in shallow. Ranging from 5 to 15 feet of water. Pull blades with a crawler harness to try and entice the walleye bite. Graceton area has had success in the 30 foot depth. Downrigging or trolling for the fish should have results. Pulling p
  22. Has anyone gone out just to do a catch and release of some of the bigger eyes? Maybe trying for the 28" or larger?
  23. Fishing in the Bemidji area has taken a bit of a hit, and anglers have to work a little harder for their walleyes than they did a week or two ago. The jig bite is a thing of the past, and people rigging crawlers or leeches on the breaklines are starting to out-produce the guys fishing with jigs in shallow. Bottom bouncers and spinners with a crawler is also working very well on outside weed edges and off the breaks. The crankbait bite remains good over the sand and cabbage, as well as around mid-lake rocks and rubble. Salmo Hornets in 6-11' of water going 2.4 mph has been working well for us.

    Weedline walleyes part 2

    Last week I spoke briefly about some things to look for when targeting weed walleyes and getting to know the types of weeds to better understand the clues and tips they can give you as to what the bottom substrate would be like. This week I will talk about specific tactics to use to pull fish out of the weeds. First of all live bait rigs like lindy rigs and spinners can be fished along the edges of prominent weedlines that have distinct and defined edges. Trolling is an option with longer weedlines as is casting and slowly moving these baits to the boat from a fixed position. The main prob
