Heading up this weekend, wondering how things are going. Was up last weekend north of Duluth and turnover had happened and most of the weeds where brown. It was some hard fishing looking for bass tips.

its that time of year when most locals are starting to get into hunting mode and have put the rods away. Jason might still be fishing, i would say the bass and pike should be biting up shallow the eyes will still be on the weededge i would imagine. Jonah

Yes, I've still been out. I had three guide trips last weekend and success was varied dependent upon the lake. In terms of bass, the smallmouth are insane. Potato was good for the big smallmouth, especially last Sunday morning when it warmed up a bit. Largemouth have been active as well. However, Eighth Crow Wing was very bad, the water looked like chocolate milk. But many lakes have been doing pretty well.

Not the best weekend for fishing, 30 mph winds kept us off the lake most of the weekend but still got a good 10 hours+ out there. 2 pike, 1 bass, 2 sunfish, and 1 perch. I tried spoons, spinners, dt's, floaters, shad raps, bobber and sucker, the best comb I found and caught all the fish was a chartreuse 1/4oz. jog with a fathead or leech. Most fish where coming out of 10 - 12 fow and the weeds where brow on most parts of the lake except for the drops. Also the weeds had what looked like barnacles on them not sure what that is. All in all not a bad weekend would have liked more fish but the weather wasn't helpin.

Good luck on the water!

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
