We are unsure what the ice is going to do this spring as mother nature is in control and it has been a odd year.

Although we have come up with this plan.

Well if mother nature plays nice and melts the snow cover off then keeps the temps low enough to hold the ice pack it could be some great fishing. Of course ma nature is going to do what ever she wants. I'm hoping for some good conditions into the end of March so we can get some decent fishing in this spring before I have to start prepping the boat.

Best to email me for this as I have a few options and prefer to keep the boring business stuff of the forum.

I think I was just kidding. It just sounded funny the way I read it. What happened to a little humor involved with this whole forum gig. I love how the same people jump on others for certain comments. You actually think I was hoping for GPS coordinates. Fish move and I am currently aware of that. "I know Jonny P and that wasn't nice man!!"

So on my GPS it show different bottom colors. That means what? Muck and gravel? Do I want to be on the gravel? Never fished URL so any tips would awsome.

The colors are depth contours. 1-3 one color, 3-5 another so on and so forth.

For Crappies you want to stay deeper then 12' mark on your map until ice off. That is the mud for the most part. Once the ice is off the crappies start heading across the gravel/sand.

(I'm going to always give an informative answer you jokers \:\) )

We are starting to pull them today. I'm feeling old and wore out but Jon still has some energy left so he might keep some out awhile longer. He is starting guiding people out from shore on Monday. In other words he's in charge and I'm in my recliner. Kinda like most of the winter. grin.gif

"Kelly plowing in the full reclining position!"

Wasn't that just after the Red Chevy sacrificed itself to keep your 1 ton from driving into the pressure ridge?

grin.gif Reclining seat all the time, bent steering wheel, doors that didn't close anymore and with the bent frame it made left hand turns real good. O the fun we've had through the years. grin.gif

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.
    • Mike89
      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.
    • Gone Out Fishin
      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".   
    • Borch
      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.
    • A Warrior
      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket
    • Rick
      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
