I am wondering if anyone had any luck on Hanska this weekend. I was there saturday for about 5 hours and didn't catch a thing...I have never been there but I tried every spot I could and everyone i talked to said they were biting last weekend like crazy but nothing was biting while i was there.

I was there on Saturday morning and did not have any luck. I talked with a couple of other fisherman and the best I heard was one crappie. Just an off weekend I guess.

Yeah- its called being overfished. Heard ALOT, and I mean ALOT of doubledipping going on there- ppl catching limit, taking them home and then going right back. Went there twice last week and caught 1 walleye myself and my dad caught 1 as well.

Oh, and BTW- I hope someday the doubledippers get caught, really sets bad examples and really makes fish disappear, fast. 9 times out of 10 ppl that overcatch their limits let the fish go to waste anyway, its a shame

I agree with Zamboni, I hope double dippers get caught. I think it is every sportsmans duty to report any of this that is going on. If you keep it you eat it.

It sounds like most people had BAD LUCK last Saturday. Sounds like turnover shock! (Well it did sound like that) Read the Bass page.

I have never fished Hanska and can't find info on the lake. Maps and such. It's big but how deep?

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.

      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
