looking at possibly coming up there next saturday or sunday for the last weekend of walleye fishing. Just wondering if there is much happening up there with the eyes and crappies or not really. I have never fished Osakis so I don't know a thing about the lake. Any info would be great. Thanks guys!

Just got home from waska and let me tell you what this was a great time for my son and I had a couple bumps right away on the lake like my 4 wheel drive went out on my truck but a couple nice locals helped me get unstuck then it was off to see if landdr's reports were on and I couldnt belive it the fish were biting like crazy.

I stopped by landdr's bait shop and got some of the bait he said to use and the price was nice and the person working there was reaaly helpful in telling us were to fish and what to accept for the fish.

roads on the lake were alright and if you got a 4x4 you can go most anywhere and I did see a number of cars out on the ice and they did get around fairly well.

Joey the fisherman and myself got on the fish(sunnys) right away Of course Joey picked up the first one and it was a dandy a solid 9 incher then it was weed thru a couple until we started getting a few nicer ones. we kept enough for a good meal probally caught a hunderd or so fish in all sizes.

I also talked with a few spearing guys and man do I wish I would off broiught my spear shack cause as landdr said you can see bottom in 15 FOW and these guys saw a few pike on the bottom and one guy got one around 8 lbs. I also had a couple of my decoys with and one is a perch that laska (HSO member) made so I asked this guy if he'd like to use try it and he did he said he had one pike circle the hole but wouldnt come in.

I will be back to fish and SPEAR some pike in this body of water.

Finally it was getting to the end of the day we took off from the lake and went by landdr's shop and he was in so I had to stop and say hi

It was really nice to meet you Kyle and thanks for your reports keep them coming I know I will use them. Oh and you guys out there I never left with any free lures or a thousand dollars his guarantee stands as far as I know.

Thanks again Kyle hope to see you soon

Oh BTW Joey really got me going cause every time he'd set the hoolk he'd yell FISH ON man did we laugh

So FISH ON, FISH ON

I was on waska yesterday and did well on sunnies, went off of lakeside ballroom to start. drove out to an area in between 2 bigger groups of permenants ,when we started, we were the only ones in our area.. by midmorning, the whole area was swamped with anglers. later in the day we went off of woodlawn and found a few sunnies but they were smaller.. I did lose 1 walleye while fishing pike on the bottom of the hole though. smile

I also was on waska yesturday and did very well on the south side of the group of houses out from the lakeside ballroom Joey and I caught around a hundred sunnies and the smallest of jigs were the ticket tipped with waxies or maggots the color was green or perch pattern. 16 fow and 1-2 foot off the bottom

I was out Saturday morning and stayed until Sunday morning. Decided there were to many people out from lakeside in the group so I went off to one side. The wife and I had our limit of flops in about 3 hours. We were being picky after our first limit. Thanks for the shrimp Kyle. You weren't there, but those things were the ticket. At 1:30 moved to some structure way off the beaten path for some walleye and continued to catch flops and then a walleye came in and grabbed a fathead (nice 15") then another. At 2am the rattle reel sounded off and I pulled another nice eye. Nothing after that. I got up about 7am and caught & released some more flops. The wife & I had a great time. The camera worked better than the vex. I left @ 8am and headed home.

Wow, I guess I was doing something wrong. My pops and I tried out by lakeside, kinda in the middle of the whole ordeal. We didn't try to be in the middle, but after getting there at 7:00am and flipping the house over, 2 straight hours of augers drilling and opening the house, we were in the middle. eek Too many people on the weekends, I'll try during the week. 3 sunfish kept. Schwanny, what are FLOPS?

Just another word I use for sunfish. Sunflops, floppers, ect. I should have clarified. Stcloudangler, that is one big area out there. Just get away from everybody. These fish are not pressured as much and are more willing to bite. Try to do your own thing and sometimes it really pays off.

Sorry i am not sure where that is, still learning, is that closer to glenwood or by sherriffs landing. Took the day off and going to try for some tommorrow, i havent seen many yet so i figure i will give it a go

crue86 I haven't heard of anyone catching many crappies, I would stick to bluegills straight out from Lakeside in Glenwood

some guys are picking up one or two crappies but nothing special

by the way you dont need to fish inside the group, the bluegills are in most directions, dont just drill your 2 holes and pop up shack for the day, fish a hole for 10 minutes and move

Hey...the thread it back! Yaaaaaaa!

Thanks Rick. You're da man.

Just for that I will come back also. Believe me...it has been hard watching and not helping out.

Teejay...you better stick to fishing rather than giving directions. That poor guy you sent off Lakeside to get to Crappie Town is going to have a tough haul over there. To get to Crappie Town you need to go off the DNR access and hang a left. Last time I was there the road was pretty good.

The crappie bite has been scattered...there are some folks getting into a few however. If I were to try for crappies, there are two "tight" contours in Crappie Town that I would go to.

Got a couple of eyes out in School Bar...I see them on the camera but heck if they'll bite. Nice to see them but frustrating as they would look a lot better in my pail. Maybe one more time out and then I am pulling the house in.

By the way, I did get a response back from Rep. Paul Anderson regarding extending the shelter season to March 15th for the south part of the state. (north MN already has that) He liked the idea and is checking into it. Do an internet search for him to get his email...send him an email in support and maybe we can keep some houses on the lakes for a little longer...the ice is certainly in great shape!

Panfish have been really steady out from Lakeside. My son and I went out on Sunday and brought home about 30 really nice ones...most where 8 to 10 with many 9 to 10...but kept a couple a little less than 8 as well. That was enough to clean. There were fish all over the camera steady. Some really big pike as well but they would have nothing to do with my sucker minnows. Spear guys are doing pretty good out there however.

I tried the larvae and could not get the gills to bite so I stuck with shrimp and that worked great. I have some that come in and report they did fine with larvae and others that have the same report as me...they would just look at the larvae but would nail the shrimp. You will have to see what works for you. Small jigs were definately a must with #14 being the most popular...not really a color but pink/white did seem to work a little better for me but I wouldn't say it was a make or break thing.

I have had many people ask what time is the best bite. I have not fished the morning so I don't really know...I have always gone out after noon. But Chad from Ken's Bait was up early on Saturday and expressed they caught a few smaller gills early but the bite picked up around 10am and I had expected as well. However, come early if you want to try for some of the early feeding pike.

Fish On!

Thank you! Appreciate everyone's support and reports as well.

Also...if anyone has any interest in waterfowl, check into the post on "MN bluebill thoughts" in the Ducks - Geese - Waterfowl forum. Most people that fish are also interested in ducks...so check that post out for some information.

Fish On!

GREAT to see ya back landdr. I didnt make it out anyways to blustery (wind) but get the kids this weekend and will try then, problably stop in and say hi. Good to see your reports, i have always checked in for the information you have always put me towards a good bite....

So far so good Teejay.

Reports today were pretty good again with most catching a limit or close to a limit of gills. Cold one today on the ice! Tomorrow is supposed to be the warm up and the weather looks great for the weekend. Shrimp were still the reported bait of choice along with small tackle.

A lot of reports of pike in the area. Spear guys should be happy with that and this weekend is the last chance for spearing. Water clarity is really good and sounds like the pike really come in on decoys well.

Fish On!

Teejay, thanks for the invite. I promised my friends little brother that I would take him out on Saturday so I will have my hand full trying to catch him some fish. Sunday I have to stick around town for the boys band concert. Why don't you sent me an e-mail with a number and we can try to hook up on the ice Saturday. My e-mail is [email protected]

Landdr, will you be in the bait shop on Saturday morning?? I planned on stopping in picking up the box from that camera that I purchased from you the other weekend. And to also get some of that shrimp that the gills love so much. Thanks

Weather looks like it is really going to work out for the weekend. Great opportunity to get out on the lake where ever you might be going.

Ibleedice...the box with the manual and charger are on the shelf across from the counter. I may or may not be in depending on what time. This weekend is "ice golf" on Waska so we will be doing that...A LOT of fun! It will start at Lakeside Ballroom this year with registration starting around 9am but you can register any time of day and head out. From what I understand, there will be a front 7 and back 7 to start teams consisting of 3 players...best ball. You are allowed one club and a tennis ball. Lakeside will have some specials and hours-devours going on as well. If you are around and interested, come on over to Lakeside and register...bring 3 players or hop on a team. Teams are allowed a "sleigh" to port their beverages and supplies around on the course. Always a lot of fun!

Fish On!

      On the south end...  Pike anglers catching fish in back bays. Deadbait on a quick strike rig under a bobber, spoons, spinnerbaits and crankbaits are the go to presentations.  The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River.    
      The pike limit is 3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one over 40" allowed.  Most practice catch and release with a nice photo on big fish, and there are a lot of big pike being caught.
      On the Rainy River...   Sturgeon anglers looking to keep a sturgeon have through May 7th.  After that catch and release kicks in again.  Catch and release 5/8/21 - 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.  Harvest season, 7/1/21 - 9/30/21.
      A 3-5 ounce no-roll sinker combined with a sturgeon rig (18" snell of 60 lb test with a 4/0 or 5/0 circle hook) with a glob of crawlers, frozen emerald shiners or both is the most common setup.  
      Good numbers of fish, all size ranges, being caught.  Sturgeon have been active.
      Up at the NW Angle...  A few anglers fishing pike in back bays but most looking forward to the May 15th fishing opener.  The go to walleye spots come the opener will be shoreline and island structure and underwater points.  The technique, a jig and a minnow!
      With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      On the south end...  Most attention right now is with sturgeon and pike with anglers looking forward to the May 15th walleye opener.  The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River.  Backwater areas and back bays are all over LOW and the Rainy River and are where pike are being caught.  Deadbait on a quick strike rig under a bobber, spoons, spinnerbaits and crankbaits are all working.

      On the Rainy River...   Sturgeon fishing is in full swing and fishing is good.  Now through May 7th is the sturgeon harvest season (45-50", or over 75")  Catch and release 5/8/21 - 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.  Harvest season, 7/1/21 - 9/30/21.

      Find a deeper spot or hole in a stretch of the river, anchor up and still fish the bottom.  Your bait sends a scent trail the sturgeon will find!  Some huge sturgeon being caught in excess of 70 inches.

      On the south end...  Lake of the Woods is ice free!  Walleye anglers are looking ahead to the MN Fishing Opener on May 15th.  Based on the big fish in the Rainy River this spring, there is a lot of excitement!
      The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River.  Backwater areas and back bays are where pike spawning activity is taking place.  The pike limit is 3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one over 40" allowed.  Most practice catch and release with a nice photo on big fish, and there are a lot of big pike being caught.
      On the Rainy River...   The spring walleye season closed with good success.  Despite varying clarity and some spring rains pushing debris into the water, hearty walleye anglers still pulled some very good fish last week.  Now looking toward the walleye opener.  
      Sturgeon fishing this past week was excellent.  Sturgeon of all sizes being caught which bodes well for the health of the fishery which is very strong.  Sturgeon catch and release season through 4/23/21.  Keep season 4/24/21 - 5/7/21, (45-50", or over 75")  Catch and release 5/8/21 - 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.  Harvest season, 7/1/21 - 9/30/21.
      A 4-6 ounce no-roll sinker combined with a sturgeon rig (18" snell of 60 lb test with a 4/0 or 5/0 circle hook) with a glob of crawlers, frozen emerald shiners or both is the ticket.  Local bait shops / resorts have rigs and bait available.

      Hey all, just moved back to MN where I grew up after living in the PNW for a long while. I became addicted to fishing rivers and streams out there and have started to check out the offerings in the NW section of the state as of yesterday’s opener. Wondering if anyone has experience in this area and can give me some pointers or just tell me if I’m wasting my time since that’s what I’m wondering right now since I didn’t find any signs of fish. I’m using a spinning rod with Mepp’s and Panther Martin style spinners and went through a bunch of color combos. I started yesterday morning at the Clearwater River in western Beltrami County essentially on the border with Clearwater County where the state has some land and a pretty lengthy easement. Probably a well known area. Beautiful area to walk through. Found multiple holes, but yeah no fish at all. I waded for a bit and decided to leave. I went south since I live closer to Moorhead and stopped at Felton Creek. I’ve read a DNR study about this creek having a decreasing population of fish, but it’s still considered a trout stream although not “designated”. I understand the channelization of creeks in this region ruined fish habitat over the last 100 years, but still find some DNR material as of the last 5 years that reference Felton Creek as a spot for trout. Walked the stream for a bit before I left and headed to Lawndale Creek south of Barnesville. I waded through the AMA on the Atherton WMA expecting to find some brook trout since the DNR has stocked it as of at least 2017. Nothing through the entire stretch besides frogs and minnows. Are there actually fish in these places? The Clearwater and Lawndale are designated trout streams. The Clearwater is stocked annually and Lawndale is supposed to have wild brook trout. Anyone have any experience in these spots? Should’ve just drove down MN200 & 71 to the obvious spots in Becker/Hubbard?

      I caught some shrimp at the grocery store over the weekend. I'm hoping to see some spawning walleye this weekend. Who knows where they will be in a month when we are all allowed to actually fish for them!

      On the south end... The lake is still ice covered with big stretches of open water which is expanding daily.  Anglers fishing the lake are fishing in front of the Lighthouse Gap where the Rainy River enters LOW.  Anglers are allowed a limit of walleyes and saugers on the lake, but catch and release only on Four Mile Bay and the Rainy River during the spring walleye season which lasts through April 14.  The walleye season opens again on May 15th.
      Pike Fishing.  Open water is available in the back bays such as various Four Mile Bay, Bostic Creek, Zippel Bay and backwaters on the Rainy River where pike spawn.  Some nice pike being caught in shallow water areas.  These areas are off of the main lake and perfect for small boats.  The pike season is open year round on LOW and the Rainy River.  3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one over 40" allowed.  
      On the Rainy River...   This past week was nothing short of incredible for walleye fishing on the Rainy River.  Large numbers of big walleyes were caught and released.  Many fish 30 - 33+ inches in the mix.  Exactly why anglers love the Rainy River in the spring.  
      Good reports up and down the river including Four Mile Bay.
      A 3/8 - 1/2 ounce jig is working nicely tipped with a minnow or a plastic.  Bright plastics and frozen shiners working best on jigs.  Some anglers trolling crankbaits with success to cover water.  
      Sturgeon fishing continues to be good with good numbers of sturgeon being caught.  Most anglers targeting holes in the river.  Some sturgeon being caught on rolling sand dunes with fish laying in the depressions. Wherever there is food and a bit of slacker water!
      With lower current, a 3 ounce no-roll sinker combined with a sturgeon rig (18" snell of 60 lb test with a 4/0 or 5/0 circle hook) with a glob of crawlers, frozen emerald shiners or both is the ticket.  Local bait shops have rigs and bait available.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Locals are able to get their boats from the mainland (Angle Inlet) to most areas of the islands.  Looking ahead to open water, there are various ways to travel to the NW Angle this summer without crossing the border.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  There is also the Lake of the Woods Passenger Service (charter boat shuttle to Angle).  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      On the south end... Most of the lake is still ice covered with the exception of large areas adjacent to inflowing water such as the Lighthouse Gap (Rainy River) and Morris Point Gap (Bostic Creek) areas.  Open water is expanding daily.  Anglers are allowed a limit of walleyes and saugers on the lake, but catch and release only on Four Mile Bay and the Rainy River through April 14. 
      Open water is becoming available in many of the back bays around the lake where pike spawn.  The pike season is open year round on LOW and the Rainy River.  3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one over 40" allowed.  
      On the Rainy River...   River fishing started out strong, slowed down with cold weather and the Big Fork and Little Fork Rivers spilling mud into the Rainy River and now is picking up again.  The water is clearing and water temps are on the rise.
      A 3/8 - 1/2 ounce jig is working nicely tipped with a minnow or a plastic.  Bright plastics and frozen shiners working best on jigs.  Walleyes caught in various depths down to 35 feet.  
      Some anglers trolling crankbaits with success to cover water.  Walleye season is catch and release only on Rainy River and Four Mile Bay through April 14th.
      Sturgeon fishing continues to be good with good numbers of sturgeon being caught.  Sturgeon aren't as affected by dirty water as they feed by scent.  Sturgeon catch and release season through 4/23/21.  Keep season 4/24/21 - 5/7/21, (45-50", or over 75")  Catch and release 5/8/21 - 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.
      With lower current, a 3 ounce no-roll sinker combined with a sturgeon rig (18" snell of 60 lb test with a 4/0 or 5/0 circle hook) with a glob of crawlers, frozen emerald shiners or both is the ticket.  Local bait shops have rigs and bait available.

      Anyone heading to the WFC for the opener this weekend?  I am planning on heading up on Friday morning and hope to find some Crappie on Friday before trying to some Walleye on Saturday.  Last time on the water the temps were only low to mid 40's.  Anyone have any updates on the water temps?  I will be fishing in a Red G3 boat with a Black Talon and Yamaha kicker.  Stop and say hi if you see me, I might be fishing solo this weekend.  I will publish something about my trip Sunday or Monday.  Good Luck Everyone!  Stay safe and Tight Lines!

      Tripp   Always good to see this tread bumped and revived for the spring. Maybe, I run in to you this year on the lake......
    • gimruis
      I've seen over 40 boats parked on a small flat on Mille Lacs before.  You can whisper to the boat fishing next to you as long as you aren't running an old loud 2-stroke motor.  Pool 4 in the spring can also be bumper boats and that's even more interesting because there's current.   I'm sure others can comment about how close people come when ice fishing.  The only written law I'm aware of is that you cannot legally fish within 10 feet of another fish house.  If someone is within casting distance of me, that is too close.  That includes recreational boats too.

      Mother Nature gave Minnesotans extra ice-free days this spring on many of the state’s water bodies, but relatively cool weather since then—including overnight lows in the 30s—means the water temperature may be lower than people expect. As anglers prepare to hit the water for Saturday’s fishing opener, it’s vital they keep this in mind and put their safety first. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I realize this is the longest of long shots, but has anyone seen some coolers (one larger blue soft-sided, another smaller gray/blue) floating around Smart's Bay or Northern Hinsdale Saturday morning or perhaps at Timbuktu Marina?   We either left them at Timbuktu Marine, or they flew out of the boat going there in Smarts Bay or Northern Hinsdale.   Thanks

      Hope this wasn't directed at me. I was just joking about following raven around. I go out of my way to stay away from other fisher people! 40,000 acre lake, no need to fish on top of others.
