Hey guys,

coming up the second week of june. going to keep the kids busy with some daytime pannies. love to get into perch, gills, but what's the story with cass on crappies? generally in mid-june, have they left for deeper water already, should we look to kitchi? our previous lake, we would catch crappie in a portage lake in 35+ fow. as always, i appreciate the feedback.

Many times there will still be some late spawning crappie still hanging in the shallows or just off the edge. Kitchi is a great lake to look for them in. I don't fish it much for crappie but know a lot of folks that do quite well. On Cass the SW corner and Allen's Bay are your best bet. Andrusia is great for crappie too. Near Joes Lodge and the bay on the North end of the lake.

Good luck

Buck Lake is awesome for big Sunfish and rockbass.Also if your lucky fish the docks on the south side of Buck you'll find a few crappies but look out for the owners of the docks,they think they own the lake.the docks also hold the big 10" sunfish.Just my 2 bits.Good luck.

I think I said this on another post, if your catching and know where to go for 10" gills on a certain lake why would you post it on a fishing forum?

Just my two cents worth!

You can get into Buck lake via the channel that connects to Cass. You shouldn't have any problems getting through that time of year. Just trim up the outboard and take it slow.

The only access that I know of on Lost lake is the right-of-way access off of mission road. Might be a little tough getting a boat in there.

Brian,

Make a mental note to tell me about Lost as well. Deb is staying at Horseshoe this year and I plan on maybe renting a boat from Clark for a day to hit Lost. He has that $40 special for 8 hours including the gas and you know what big spenders us boys from the Windy are!!! Hope all is going well down on the farm! Hope the little one is doing well in school.

Windy

      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.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.

      Oh ok! Was going to say I found a ice fishing rod  out on pearl lake

      For the 2018 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went up to Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. The morning started off slow for us so we changed up the tactics and it resulted in a livewell full of walleyes, a few Slot fish and a new Personal Best!

      Before hitting the water for the first time this spring, boaters should ensure their boats, equipment and safety items are in legal and proper working order, the Department of Natural Resources said. They should also review regulations in the 2018 Minnesota Boating Guide or at the boat and water regulations page.   “With this year’s late ice-out, boaters are especially anxious to get on the water and start enjoying the boating season,” said Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator. “After waiting all winter to get back on the water, no one wants to break down, get a ticket or have a safety emergency.” In addition to making sure boats are equipped with required safety items, boaters should take extra precautions during the cold-water season, when more than 30 percent of Minnesota’s boating fatalities occur. While children younger than 10 years old must wear life jackets while aboard watercraft that are underway (i.e., not tied to a dock or anchored for swimming), boat and water safety officials recommend all boaters wear life jackets anytime they’re on cold water, no matter their age. “Wearing a life jacket is an important part of staying safe when the water is cold during the spring,” Dugan said. “In the event of an unexpected fall or capsizing, having a life jacket on can make all the difference.” Adult boaters who are resistant to wearing a typical life jacket should consider inflatable styles designed to make preventive use more convenient and comfortable. Before the season’s first launch, boaters should verify their motorboats are equipped with the following: U.S. Coast Guard-approved wearable life jackets for each person on board. Type IV throwable flotation device on boats 16 feet or longer. Horn or whistle. Type B U.S. Coast Guard-approved fire extinguisher. Navigation lights in working order. Valid boat registration, with numbers visible. Marine carbon monoxide detector in some boats. Watercraft can be registered in person at any deputy registrar of motor vehicles or at the DNR License Center in St. Paul. Registrations are good for three calendar years. Renewals can be done in person or online on the licenses and vehicle registration page. More details, including boating safety tips and new laws, (among them Sophia’s Law and information on watercraft operator permit requirements) can be found in the boating guide at the boat and water regulations page.

      Oh oh, sounds like work. Better than work in the office any day though. Thanks for getting back. Let you know how it goes this weekend.

      Ely Lake is tough. I don't have much experience fishing it, but everything I've heard about it is weedlines are key.

      I was an intern for the DNR one summer many years ago and I rented out a large fish house as my residence it at Hunters Point Resort.  It was more like a small, one room cabin actually.  There was obviously no running water but there was a shower/bathroom complex a short walk from my door.  I had propane power so I could use that for cooking and it had electricity via an extension cord provided by the resort.  I paid a flat monthly fee to stay there.  The bar/restaurant was a short walk too so I spent many nights bellied up there drinking beer.  The one thing that I will advise to you on this subject is to outfit it with some air conditioning.  Those things are designed to be outside in the winter and stay warm so if its 70 outside, its 80 in there.  They turn into a friggin' oven.  I put a 12,000 BTU AC unit in mine and turned that sucker into a meat locker.  Lots of other people at the resort used their own winter houses as a weekend cabin there, plus there was a lot of RV's parked there too.

      I'm not sure why rivers are so over looked here.  Its probably because we have so many lake options.  Plus some of these stretches of the river are quite shallow/rocky so I think that turns people off about launching a sizable boat.
