Was up this afternoon for the maiden voyage of the season with my 9 year old son, we headed out near Hennepin Island.

We were on a sled and didn't see or run across any slush thank god. We had 10-11" of great solid ice.

Fished from 1-5 and caught 3 nice perch, tons of lookers and not much for takers, threw everything but the kitchen sink at them.

Not much action up there today that I could see.

Next time try fishing lures. I have never had too much luck with kitchen appliances. Caught one on a fork once, the waiter said it was sushi.

When you have a 9 year old who is always on the go with you, you will learn to be creative and do whatever it takes to try and get them to bite!

Seems to be the concensus on the fishing lately, lots of lookers and few takers.

I also fished the SE corner. I did throw the kitchen sink at them - no 'eyes, but a few perch.

I fished north end of grassy- nothin.

Fished near Malone - a few perch, no eaters.

Fished north end of Popes reef - more small perch.

And finally, the graveyard - Nothin.

There were people sorting through a lot of small perch and catching some keepers right in front of Anglers Paradise. About 10-1.

Se corner real slow IMO.

Good Luck!

I was out on the flats today, had a total of 2 bites. Luckily pulled both up. 26" and 22.5" eyes. Really slow, but those fish made it worth it. Hope to get up again in the coming days to try and catch them again. Good luck this weekend.

      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..

      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

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      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.
