Ice is plenty thick on virtually all lakes, granted there are spots with current on the chain where you still need to be careful, but you should be fine driving on the roads that are blazed on the lakes.

I was out there last weekend and the ice was fine. Lot's of vehicle traffic. However, only one bite in over 10 hours on the ice. Spoke to plenty of others and everyone reported poor angling. Saw a couple of big catfish laying on the ice though 8^)

This is exactly what those people are thinking..."If it's not a walleye, it doesn't belong in the lake!" It's that old school mentality where walleye is the king and any other fish supposedly holds them back. Of course any angler with common sense and average knowledge knows this to be false.

Way to many idiots out there, especially this winter with all the ice that allows everyone to drive out on the lakes.

It depends on which side of the lake you want to go on.If your looking to go on the west side,gain access off of Hwy. 22.If you're driving south from Richmond/Hwy. 23, start slowing down where you see the no parking signs on the east side of the road, after you cross the bridge that goes over the channel betwen Horseshoe, and Cedar Island.There is a winter access spot to drive on on the east side of the highway.It is on the bay just to the north of Mud Lake.

If your looking to get on on the east side of the lake,use the public access, which is right off of Stearns Cty. Rd. 71. The access is about 2-3 miles south of Hwy. 23, on Cty. 71.

Using a car might be easier on the public access.The winter access off of 22 might require 4 wheel drive.I don't know for sure because I haven't used it this year.

I agree...i have no problem with guys that take em and eat em, but the 2 watters that throw any fish on the ice to rot simply aren't sportsmen....

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁
