Went out to a north metro lake tonight and was pleasently suprised. Got some nice largemouth bass early in the day i think 5 between 14 and 17 inches here is a picture of 1 of them.

A little later on i had a walleye move in got that one on a jiggin rap made 15"s too bad season was closed.

Caught some nice sunfish all day long kept one that made 8 inches. Later on the crappies moved in i was set up in 11 FOW right at the weedline and i started to see marks 1-5 feet under the ice so i brought my jigging rap up and nailed 3 crappies right in a row 2 9.5"s and 1 10.5"s. Nice night to be on the ice and it sure was fun watching all the fish come in and hit on the aqua vu,

Seems to me bass action picks up now the later it gets into spring.

Those fish up high are usually aggressive and fun. Tough to pick up on electronics. The first fish I got sunday eve. was a 9.5" crappie I spotted following my lure dropping down at about 5'. Caught a few more in the 4'-8' range over 17' FOW.Fish below 12' didn't want to bite

Yea those largemouth are fun. Looks like a great outing. I was out this afternoon on going after crappies and hooked into a 22 inch largemouth! This is definately the biggest bass I've ever caught, as I've caught several 20 inchers, a few 21's but never a 22. My guess was 6.5-7 lbs. She was a tank. It took me 7 minutes to land with 3 lb test and an ultralight. Didn't help getting caught around the vex cord. Caught her in 18 feet of water right off a weed flat on fish lake.

bassphis2005...he's sneaky (fishlakeman) but let's just do some deducing, as Holmes said ''eliminate all the impossible, and whatever remains, however improbable must be true.'' so here goes.6-7 lbs.probly not north of brainerd. or west of kandiohi.nothing east so must be more southwest or northwest or north/northeast of st.paul. in metro forum so not past maple plain, forest lake with none due west. so southwest, northwest or north/northeast. 18 feet of water, ''right off weed flat''. 18 feet deep and we must deduce that it is about 15 feet at least ''on'' the weedflat. so based on water clarity in remaining lakes and what depth weeds can grow in it must be in \:\/ ''Maple Grove''. grin.gif WHEW, that fishy detective stuff is draining. sleep.gif

Or you could do it the easy way like I did... Metro Area forum, look at his "Location" lists Maple Grove so fish lake in Maple Grove. ;\)

Im not 100% sure dont think there are any walleyes in Fish lake in Maple Grove. I used to fish it quite a bit before I got into muskie fishing. Then again I dont walleye fish either.

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      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.
