Been trying to get out on Fishhook the past 3 days. The wind and the cold is making that a not so enjoyable expierience. I was out there for a couple of hours today. Fish seem to be pretty inactive. Anyone else having any success.

I was out on Long this afternoon, and the bite was tuff. The fish would pick the bait up and then drop it.

This evening I went out on Fishhook. The bite was really slow out there also.

Fishing is a funny thing. I also fished yesterday (9-26). Fished from 12:30- 3:00 p.m. Picked up one nice eye 21 1/2 inches and two others that went 16 and 14. Redtails in 12-18 FOW. Lost a couple of others just before they got to the boat. Going to try it again on Friday afternoon. Fishing - it's not just for breakfast anymore.

Was at a different honey hole tonight on the Hook. Caught 10 eyes in a little over 2 hours. Mostly 14-17 inch fish. 18-26 FOW using redtails.

As far back as I can remember, yesterday was the first day I fished (10:30 a.m. -6:15 p.m.) a lake and had the entire lake to myself. A very enjoyable time. I saw two other boats but they were headed down the river, probably to be taken out for the year. I managed four walleye (saved one 19" for supper) and plenty of pike (two in the 25-27" range, all released)kept things interesting. Plan to get out there again today to enjoy the serenity.

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
