  1. Hey all, I am new here obviously, but I recently learned how many fish the DNR kill off every year with those surveys. I've never started a petition for anything before, but here's my attempt to get that to stop. https://www.change.org/KillingFishMN This is not about the big lakes. To me it is the same as trying to manage deer by digging a pit in the woods to see what falls in and dies- Wisconsin pretty much gave it up and we should as well. I know some DNR guy is going to get on here and say it is for consistent data, and that it only happens every few year
  2. The tournament yesterday looked like the walleyes were tight lipped. Almost half of the 125 boats didn't weigh a fish. Looks like I'm not the only one struggling. I don't know if I'm allowed to post the results. I'll let someone else do it, if it's ok.
  3. Heading up this weekend to camp at onegume with the family- wife and two kids under 10, and the dog. Just looking for tips on where fish might be found/best tactics this time of year. I’ve never been to the area and would love to try for some walleye, but with kids, panfish might be the better option as patience tends to run a bit short at times. I have a 16’ flat bottomed alumacraft, so won’t be venturing out on the big lake, just looking for a few ideas to keep the kids engaged and maybe have one small fish fry. Thanks in advance for any help!
  4. The Timberjay recently had a typical article about the Hatchery in operation in Pike Bay. It reminded me that they did not strip eggs last year due to Covid, and there was some discussion about how this would affect the lake's walleye population. I did a little digging last night into the annual growth of walleye in Vermilion and found that it takes somewhere in the 3-4 year range to reach eater-size range. That means that the "covid experiment" won't be real noticeable until the end of this season when walleye start reaching double-digits in length but most likely 2022 when those walleye are
  5. What is the best chip option for Vermilion. I am getting a new Lowrance HDS and need some guidance.
  6. Hello I am looking for a weight system to help me catch more fish. I am torn between Snakebite Snaps and Offshore Snap Weights. They are 2 very different clips. Anyone know anything about either? Was looking to grab some here soon.
  7. Are Minnesota anglers aware of legislation currently in progress to lower the statewide bag limit from six to four? I sure don't hear much discussion about it.
  8. Fished Lake of the Woods yesterday during this tropical heat wave.. I'll tell you what, if you're planning on fishing in these temps, bring backup gear for your essentials (Heat, Auger, etc). Doing this was key for us yesterday when the buddy heater hose was acting up due to the cold. We had a fun day! Check out the video below:

    YGK G-Soul Upgrade X-8

    So onto a little experiment with the FG knot testing of the YGK G-Soul Upgrade X-8 and I crudely tied it onto some Fluorocarbon leader of either 30 or 40 lb test. I only did that one section and went to tie off the other end to a swivel like I normally would do so. For the results the FG knot would not break and held throughout my test. I tried a variation of knots this time and use a different choice of line to act as a buffer for the knot. Line upon itself yield a result of 5# 9 oz. Line with 80# braid yield a result of 5# 8 oz. Palomar knot: 4# 9 oz. Double Palomar knot:

    YGK G-Soul Upgrade X-8

    It's been awhile since I purchased any new braided lines. The last batch of lines was a bunch of Diawa J-Braid x8 and J-Braid Grand x8, a couple of Fireline Ultra 8, and Nanofil lines. On my list would be YGK G-Soul Upgrade X8 line and YGK G-Soul SS112 Sinking Braid line. Well, shopping cart, submitted. Well I ordered a few lines but I stayed with the small diameters again and keeping them under .200 mm for the most part. This will put it in the same frame as most of the other lines I've used in the past for ice fishing. So my impulsive line order came through and I ordered a variety of
  11. Can't seem to ever get a sled ride together anymore on the other side of the wall. Any guys with a sled and porty want to get together for a meetup and fish somewhere some weekend for the day or weekend if way up north? Crappies-Walleyes both? Mill Lacs, Brainerd area................? The more the merrier, safety in numbers helps if someone needs a pull or getting out of slush. Not a big plan. Meet at a lake. Stare at the lake map, mark a spot or spots on the gps and head out. Not really worried about a cookout, but we could just cuts into fishing time. Bring our o

    Tipping a jig with a minnow

    Just wondering when jigging for eyes in the winter, why is the standard to tip a jig with a minnow head and not the whole minnow or the minnow tail? Would seem like a more natural presentation to tip with the tail and not the head. Anyone experimented with this?

    Has anyone had any luck on the jefferson chain by cleveland or any of the lakes by Madison lake

  15. Leech Lake. I am wondering what to expect. I think I might go out on Boy bay using the public landing on Sugar Point. First are there any safety concerns, ice conditions to worry about, Landing safe? Second what can I expect for fish? Kind of looking for some nice panfish during the day and a stray walleye or two towards evening
  16. Hi Everyone, this is my first post here. I am looking for some tips or tricks to break down some of the water in the Northeast part of Vermilion for ice fishing opportunities. We will be up in that area for a week at the start of January and I have no idea how to know what the ice conditions typically are that time of year. We are debating on bringing snowmobiles or an ATV, but I'm not even sure what works better up there this time of year. For people who fish up in this area often: Do you seem to have better luck trying the big lakes, or breaking down smaller b

    Set Lines

    Alright, looking for insight from some people who know more about sitting and waiting for fish than I do. Last year I bough some tip ups and had some luck on them but now I see it appears to be all the rage to use the IFish Pro stuff and use a rod and reel. Anybody out there feel like these actually do any better than a standard old tip up or is it just about not having a mess of line on the ice after having a flag. Moved to MN from mostly fishing northerns on tip ups which didn't seem to care about things not spinning as smooth as these darn walleyes do around here. Would a rod and reel s
  18. I am new to ice fishing and the aitkin area. I am wondering what is the best colors and even jigs for walleye and crappies in the aitkin area. Its my 1st year of icexfishing. I've always been into open water before.
  19. 12/3/20 a female posted 4" ice on the Coon lake channel with photo of someone in a hub fishing. A comment stated someone also caught a 24" walleye in the channel. Over the years you may see a half dozen anglers early ice on the channel. Saturday 12/5 I stopped by the channel and counted about 54 anglers crowded in the 300' x 800' channed and 6 or so cars driving around looking for a place to park. Yesterday 60+ crowded the channel. Really hard to fix stupid. Walleye slot over 17". Won't be long before DNR Walleye reduction changes.
  20. 12.8.20 Sunset Lodge Fishing & Ice Update - Northwest Angle of Lake of the Woods Hello from Sunset Lodge on Oak Island! We got ice! Lower than normal current levels have led to better than average, more consistent early ice conditions in the Northwest Angle. Wind and warm temps have kept the main lake south of Garden Island open until just recently. As usual, ice conditions are always changing and there remain many areas that are still unsafe for travel. With the cold weather and little snow in the forecast we are likely to see improved and more stabl

    New to Metro area

    Moved to area last winter and don’t know much about any lakes in the metro. Panfish is by far the most fun for myself and would like to get into walleyes. Would really appreciate some suggestions on where to go within the metro and try out this upcoming ice fishing season.
  22. Has anyone ever fished Nina Moose? I’ve heard it has good fishing, the trip would be mostly walleye and smallmouth.
  23. So the weather really tanked!! I was hoping to fish until November before winterizing the boat. Anyone been out...either reservoirs or up Hwy 53? Any idea of when landings start pulling docks...probably on DNR site huh?
  24. We are excited to announce that Sandy Point Lodge & Resort has purchased Aluma-Lite angling houses to rent this winter in addition to our already established fleet of darkhouse rentals for spearing.

Contact us today at 218-875-2615 or via email at [email protected] Fish on!
  25. Heading out to Leech in the cold temps...hoping to stay at least dry. Any reports or bait suggestions? I’ll keep you posted.
