I plan on fishing Prescott this weekend. Can anybody tell me how this fishing is out there and how the bite is?

I was out by Prescott Wednesday night from 5-7. Marked a few fish but caught nothing. I started on the north edge of the flat halfway between the MN shore and where the group of perms are in 17ft. Marked fish there and had a few fish follow up from the bottom, only to swim away. Moved up to 15ft and marked very few fish and I suspect most of those were small schools of bait fish. The next time I go out I will probably try the shoreline or out where most of the perms are setup. There were many vehicles out on the ice and some were out near where there was open water only a few weeks ago. They may not have been all that close but it was an area that I would never drive. Good luck and be safe!

The ice was around 16-18" where I checked. I will probably be down there on Friday afternoon/evening and again on Sunday. I have a Red Toyota Tundra and a Frabil shack, stop by and say hi if you see me.

WOW \:o thats alot of ice. Now is there anything special that the fish are bitting on like gold hooks or anything, and bait wise i am geussing that a guy would bring fatheads and maybe something alittle bigger for a tipup, or should i just go with fatheads for my hooks and tipups??

THANX Robbie

Hows the Fishin been? And where can you get access to the river? I have fished this section in the spring, but never ice fished it. But am looking to give it a try. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?

      tried this last year,   not worth it in my opinion.    But I always wondered if I could eat the rusty crayfish.  has anyone tried?
