Was out Sunday Night from 2 until 8pm. Snowin and Blowin like crazy and only caught 2 15" walters. Still plenty of slushy spots, mostly by the shore. I was Just out side the east bay in 18'fow. There was a good 10" to 11" of ice. I'll still ride out on my wheeler and wait till i see someone else drive there truck out. wink.gif

Was out tonight south of the island, only caught 1 small perch. Fished in any where from 10-18 FOW. Really slow out there.

I know the fish tend to move toward the NE part of the lake the closer to ice-out you get. If I were to get back out again, I would fish around that point on the NE side of the lake. good luck! smile.gif

I have seen all the houses in the NE bay. I always want to try something new. I may go back out to the slew of houses, and try it next time.

I was out the day after Christmas, just south of the island in about 14'-12'. Caught about 10 small perch (too small to keep) about 1-2 hours before dark, then it died off quick. I also saw that Ford on the ice. I only had about 10" of ice, so I still think it's a little early, but hey, someone has to be first.

Got out a little later than I wanted. Fished amongst all the houses. The crappies were stacked up 3-5 feet off of the bottom. Worked hard and found a few agressive fish, enough for appetizers! By 9:30AM or so the crappies had moved on. Moved to the break east of the island and caught a 3.5" perch....woohoo! wink.gif

Rather than wait 4 hours for the bite, going deer hunting as its the last day of the season! grin.gif

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

me and my buddy went out the other day. fish the same bay everyone else does... so many houses stack up in the bay it's rediculous. fished 12' fOW, got out there around 4 and the gills were biting constantly with the occasional crappie passing through. sun went down and it was about 6:00 and the crappies came in to stay. couldn't keep our lines in the water. used a gemNeye glow red wit a crappie minnow and bobber, then jigged wit euro larvae. by 7:00 the bite was over, caught a bunch of small crappies and we kept a dozen 9" crappies and 6 big 10"s (once they get to 10 inches they sure get fat!), and we kept the biggest sunny i've seen out of beebe! a pleasing night out there i must say.

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.   
    • Getanet
      It sure is.  I know you can camp on Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan and Sandpoint through the National Park Service. For someone who's never been (or only once) do you guys recommend one lake over the others?  Sort of the "if you can only visit one lake, make sure its ______"
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week.

      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.
