  1. 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!
  2. Is there any netting action on Cutfoot yet? Heading up to open up the shack this weekend, was hoping to go take a look. Looking at the Williams Narrows web cam it looks as though the ice is getting awful black! Still got a ways to go though.
  3. 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.

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
  5. Has anyone been on the water of areas lakes? Kinda curious what the water temps are hovering around?
  6. 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

    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.
  9. Hey just trying to find a report that says like on March 20th, 2021 the water level measured at Crane Lake was.. say 18 feet 6 inches.. measured again on April 5th, 2021 and the depth is now at 17 feet six inches.. something simple. been searching around this web site.. and way to complex.. KISS Keep it short and simple.. over and out.. same thing any web site you just want a bit of info.. and all this run around crap.. pffff.
  10. On the south end... Most of the lake is still ice covered with the exception of large areas adjacent to inflowing water such as the Lighthouse Gap (Rainy River) and Morris Point Gap (Bostic Creek) areas. Open water is expanding daily. 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. Open water is becoming available in many of the back bays around the lake where pike spawn. The pike season is open year round on LOW and the Rainy River. 3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one ov

  12. 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.
  13. Is the special 40 inch min pike reg for this lake gone? I only see a 10 per day sunfish limit listed. Thanks
  14. 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.
  16. New rules for purchasing a combination license in MN. DNR adjusts how married anglers and hunters buy combination licenses Both members of married couples who want to purchase a combination angling or hunting license in person will need to be present at the sales location starting Feb. 18, when the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will begin requiring both spouses to provide and verify their own complete customer records on file to purchase a combination license. “These changes will bring the DNR into compliance with state and federal laws that require collecting this inform
  17. It’s coming fast! I’m guessing March 26th for birchdale
  18. 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
  19. 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
  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. Just curious how far some of you have walked across a lake to find a fishing spot? I don’t officially know myself, but assume I’ve done 3 or so miles round trip on Mille Lacs looking for tullibee. I’m probably going to try and double that (and more) in search of them again, late in the season. Has anyone traveled via bicycle across ice? I’m considering that too. Oh what we’re willing to do for a fish

    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

  24. 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
