Sounds like a lot of great reports. Heading up tomorrow afternoon with the big house. Setting up for walleyes tomorrow night and moving sat am for some sunfish and a bit of spearing. Is it still best out of lakeside for some sunnies/spearing? Are there any good walleye spots just out deeper from there? Also curious about ability to drive with big house as far as snow and if there are any springs in that area?

Thanks for any responses. First time up there since December. Tried to make it last weekend but honey to do list quite long:)

Fishbum...Most are still going out from Lakeside and the bite is still really strong and very nice fish. That would also be a great spot for you to set up for spearing.

I have seen a couple eyes go thru where we fish gills but not enough to call it a good spot. I am still seeing a lot of eyes out on the School Bars...but they are hard to catch.

Driving is just fine and you should not have any issues getting around. No springs except by the DNR hatchery but you won't be over there.

I am headed out to Waska tomorrow, Landdr what time do you open? I need to get some scrumptious shrimp from you!!

I don't know the style of fishing everyone uses, but we were out on waska yesterday out off lakeside ballroom, and we did great on larvae, caught a few on the shrimp, but they come off way to easy. Had more hits on the larvae also, I am constantly jigging with a light rod and spring bobber using #14 firetiger diamond jig, or white with pink ring marmooskas. I don't bobber fish, how is everyone else fishing them out there???

I am sure the snow is fine now Landdr...but I really enjoy fishing pannies when you can't drive out anymore and accessable by foot or sled/wheeler. Plus I have a few trips planned to go chase slabs on Rainy Lake (maybe walleyes too) and around Ely...then throw in Rainy River Eyes if the weather is consistant, and my usual late ice haunts & new spots to find! I probably will try to get over there mid-late march depend on weather, unless I talk my dad into going and making it over there for a day. I'll be a racing all over the place that I hope work just doesn't get in the way.

Alright Fishduck...I am really feel'n your pain. You have been posting all over that where ever you go you don't catch fish. Either you are starving or realling eating well...I am going with starv'in. I will donate my fish house, my camera and anything else I need to to get you some panfish (no, you can't have the gills and walleye I cleaned the other day smile ) I will be ice golfing tomorrow so the house is open. You will need to bring an LP tank, your jig sticks and the mental awareness that you are going to catch fish. Repeat several times..."I can catch fish". If you can't make it...I will take you fishing on Sunday after 1 pm when I am off work. If that doesn't work...then maybe another time.

Jackfishr...the bite might be heating up a little more as we move into later ice season...fish will become more aggressive. I expect fish will get more and more aggressive as we move later into the season as they run out of natural forage. There are still places on Waska where you put a camera down and there are zooplankton everywhere on the camera and the gills look like me after Thanksgiving dinner...lethargic! I predict out from Lakeside the bite will get even better since that area looks really depleated of natural forage and I expect Bottle Bay will start heating up as gills start moving in to feel on the weed lines. Everything is about a month behind this year due to the cold August and Warm September. Also, Crappie Town and a few well now "draws" may heat up with slab crappies later on...the ones the fill the bottom of the pail. The "crappie pros" from Litchfield can tell you about all of that...but I don't think they are talk'in...just smile'in. smile

Bluegill...I envy you. BUT...March is my time to go to Mexico each year inbetween the Deer Classic and the NW Sport Show. I will wait for your photos and reports...sounds like a GREAT time. Maybe some day you can show me the ropes and I will venture out. Keep in mind that I a very Scandinavian and I can count on one hand the lakes I have fished on...just meat and potatoes for this guy...very simple...bust consistent.

PS...anyone coming up from the cities? I have an ice golf partner that needs to get here and his truck just broke down and can't be repaired until next week. Let me know.

Fished out front of Lakeside today and didn't do too good. Had one keeper sunnie and the rest were too small. A couple perch, small bass, and small crappie. We had larva and shrimp. Kinda disappointed, but that's fishing. Had a underwater camera and saw weird fog like stuff down by the weeds. What is that? Great day to be out on the ice though!

Landrr, thanks for the offer. Is that bluebill painting in your shop for sale? Might try in front of my house today on Le' Homme Dieu.

tbone4...if you get too far to the right (north) you will run into that "fog". I believe it is a developing thermocline. When I drill some holes to the north I seen it as well and there were no fish below it or in it...but a few above it, but they were not interested in bait. To the south more the fog was not present.

fishduck...just let me know when you might come down and will see what we can do for you. My plan is to get out after some gills today after 1 pm. I fished the chain last year for the crappie tournament...beautiful lakes. Sorry, the bluebill painting is not for sale. Great painting though and was given to me by one of my first PLM clients.

Anyone else have reports from Waska from yesterday?

We were out yesterday and was not good. Drilled holes in and around Lakeside(among the 500 other people) and caught nothing at all. Seen a few 6 inchers caught by people sitting outside and into their pails they went. We tried a few different areas out by ourselves and caught some dink perch and that was it.

Wow! I got my limit of 8 to 10 inchers the other day in about 45 minutes...going to start frying some up for lunch.

Usmtsrocks...did you have a camera down as well? If you did, what did you see?

nope no camera, but the 2 of us marked one fish on the vex in the 2+ hours in and around lakeside. Never seen so many trucks/portables in one area. most would fish for 15 minutes then throw the house in the truck, move 100 ft and start over. We finally got sick of 20 augers running at once nonstop and moved on.

The warm weather and nice day really brought the people out.

Anyone try over in Bottle Bay? I would expect that area to start hitting better as the food sources are depleated there as well. Might take a little searching to find spots. I have heard from many people to get away from the crowds they found good fish. I will head out after 1 today and give a report.

Thanks for the reports.

We were out yesterday, was going to try by lakeside, drove by and me and the kids looked out and decided to go where we usally go because of the large crowd out there. We went of the access you donate to and caught 15 nice gills. couple crappies but they were VERY picky. It was enough to keep the kids entertained as well as me. Found that wax worms worked better than the larva. didnt have any shrimp.

Fished Le' Homme Dieu today and caught 4 walleyes, all 4-7 inches long!! One had 2 of my fatheads in it! Good way to end the walleye season, nice to see those small fish in the chain.

I'd have to agree. I fished lake Irene yesterday and caught a 9-10 inch walleye! I'm glad those fish are doing well. It was a good walleye season, and next year should be better. (knocks on wood)

Went out from lakeside this Saturday and came home with 7 8-10"gills. The camera was full of fish all day. Must have caught 40 that were to small to keep, and had several bass come through that wouldn't bite on anything. Also, had a few nice northern come through but didn't want anything to do with my shiners. The gills seemed to be pretty picky and got more aggressive as the day went on. Had our best luck on shrimp, but also a few bites on power bait waxies. Heard that there were several northerns caught on chubs to the north of lakeside and also at the beginning of all the houses.

Fishin ain't easy, but it sure is good.

I guess i was in the wrong spot, had the same thing as you with fish on the camera all day with an occasional pike or bass strolling through but i could only manage 3 8" fish which i released. I had to have caught 40 before I started playing keep away with my jig and hoping something worthwhile would swim through.. All fish were caught on red eurolarva.

Very mixed reports over the weekend regarding the bite...very odd to have such extremes from not catching anything to doing really well. Can't explain that one. Some did well on larvae, others waxies and others shrimp...and then there were others that used all three and didn't get much at all. Even Chad from Ken's Bait was up the previous weekend and they went home with their limit pretty early...but not this weekend where they did not get their limit but he said the camera was full of fish that they just couldn't get to bite. I heard many express the same thing about a lot of fish on the camera...just not bitting.

Most reported a lot of pike around. Some could get a couple to bite but there were a lot of pike that just come and go.

I wanted to try some fishing on Sunday but spent most of the day getting the houses off the lake. So I personally have no report.

"Ice Golf" on Saturday was a blast as usually. Scotty from Lakeside Ballroom really did a nice job of hosting it...great appetizers between the front 7 and back 7. He said something about a DJ for next year...so it sounds like the event will just get bigger and better. Rob from Hunts did a great job on the fareways and hole placements. Just a great event and make sure you consider it for next year as it is just too much fun to miss.

      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.  
      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 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.
      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 ticket.  Local bait shops / resorts have rigs and bait available.
      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?

      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.

      Not at all.  I know you were just kidding.  I also stay away from crowds but have had many "close" encounters on the lake.  Many times others swarm all over you if you catch a fish or two.   Once somebody immediately went to the spot my daughter caught a 5# walleye in as we drifted 20 feet away.   Another time somebody actually bumped my boat as I was very slowly drifting.   A third instance somebody snagged my anchor rope and broke their line rather than tell me and ask me to un-snag it (think they know what my answer would have been).

      Casey was in a serious car accident several years ago that took him a while to recover from.  Think that may have been why he got out of guiding.

      Saw plenty of birds in wi. Had a pack of 4 Jake’s and another pack of 5 Jake’s. Both of those are 1 less now. They kept the toms out of the fields. Finally Sunday waited to hear a gobble then started climbing the hill to get to the gobble. Was set up within 50 yds, even could see the hens on the roost after a while. They flew down and went up the hills instead of down where I was. Found out there was a farmers field on top of that hill that I’m sure they went to for the day. The morning before the Tom I was listening too went up the hill after leaving the roost.  Learned a lot and am excited for next year. I also learned within the first hr to never sneak without your gun. Was within 20 yds of a big Tom, but not for long.

      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......

      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.
