I was on the chain today and got a few crappies and couple walleyes. The barometer was pretty high and rising though so was happy that I even got a few fish. There were fish on the vexlar most the time, just difficult making them bite. Look for deeper water.

Well I was on Horseshoe and it actually wasn't as clear this time as earlier in the year. I think you'd still be ok spearing in shallower water. There were people in spearhouses on the lake so they must be able to see.

jimbo any depth that has worked better than other depths. I also have had some luck out there in the past out from the point that sticks out from the access.

Well i Braved the cold this morning and it actually paid off, i went out to pearl and was set up about 6:45, set the house up for my sister and i went hole hopping, by 8:30 i had 7 crappies and i came back to ice house to warm up and she had 4 slabs laying in the pal, it slowed down about 9-9:30. It sure was nasty out today though, but it sure was worth it. \:\)

hill7410. Where on Pearl were you? I am not looking for exact GPS coordinates, just general area. Anywere near the "small town" set up straight out from the access? I ask because that lake is puzzling me and frustrating me.

I went out from the access and to the left, there was a little break in between a couple houses and then i went east about 30 yards to get away from the houses, i would think that it should pick up this weekend with the warm weather coming in, i am heading up to LOW with work so i will miss any pan fish action this weekend. Good Luck.

      Who hates when your monofilament line wants to come off your reel. Let me share some tips and tricks with you on spooling your reel and help fixing this problem. https://youtu.be/CkFtOHn9nm0

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      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. 
    • Squirrelhawke
      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!
