The weather is supposed to warm up this week later on. I would try zoomers or the humps. They have been doing pretty good up there. If you keep on the move and work a little u schould not have a problem finding them on the sharp breaks is where i would start. Good luck.

HIGHBANKS

We survived the winter blast that moved through yesterday. With minus 70 degree windchills, we closed our access yesterday and reopened it this morning. We have our plow trucks out trying to break through the drifts. Some of our secondary roads running north and south are completely blown shut and new roads will need to be made. Our main road out to the humps remains in fair to good condition. Winds are still blowing today and are expected to taper by this evening. All of our trucks will be out tomorrow in full force. Our goal will be to get back out to Zoomers and Big Island. Feel free to call our fishing hotline at 800-365-2560 for "up-to-the-minute" road/ice/fishing reports. Extended forecast for the upcoming weekend looks mild with temps in the low 20's. We'll look forward to seeing you then. Stop by the lodge the lodge and say "hi", we'll get a map of our current road system and offer you some tips on what to try.

Pikeslayer life is good. I fished the small water a few weeks ago. I did fair I was out on the point one side of the house was in 15 fow the other 19 fow the evening was the best bite i had for eyes and a few slime. The big water was very good to me. I fished the rock pile to the north of the humps got some nice perch. Then we fished the steep sides of a few humps with a pimpel and upside down minnow head the eyes where on the feed bag during the last warm up. We fished 24 fow to 32 fow best bite we had was from two to six. I am going to try to make it up there later next week Good luck up there.

      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..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      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.
