I've fished the Thief River north of 8th Street twice this year and picked up a few pike by the sandbar. The last 3 times fishing in TRF, I've gone up the Red Lake River to the little bay behind the mansion. A few nice 23-28" Eyes have been caught there, just not by me. I typically fish the evening from 4pm til just after dark. Was down tonight and picked up 2 eaters around 5pm in 9 fow at the edge of the current...jiggin' jiggin' jiggin'

I haven't been fishing the river too much this year. I fished on Saturday between the 1st & 3rd street bridges for a couple of hours. 1st spot "Nothing" (15' of water, muddy bottom). 2nd spot and final move of the day...IT WAS TOO COLD!!!! I fished a small rock pile and got into some Rock Bass, I know, I know...Rock Bass aren't Walleye, but hey I was having fun catching fish. Small baits, held still just on top of the rocks produced steady action. The fish were biting really light though, so electronics were very helpful.

That's my report...Good Luck.

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
