Minnesota walleye are being caught at a variety of depths with 24-27’ being the most consistent. Glow red with gold has been a hot combo this week. Rattle baits continue to draw active fish to our houses. Sauger activity has been very strong, providing Anglers the opportunity for full limits before new regulations take effect on March 1st. New limit regulations give a combination of six walleye/sauger with no more than 4 walleye. The slot of 19.5”-28 must be immediately release with one walleye over 28’ to be allowed in possession.
Canadian crappies are still filling buckets and freezers, they can be found near the bottom in 32-35ft. Super light tackle and willingness to keep trying different jig combinations is producing the most fish. Many tulibee are being seen this week, which make for a tasty treat out of the smoker. Walleye fishing continues to be very good in traditional areas, depth at 23-28ft.
Snow depth in our areas is between 2 and 2.5 ft. Trails are in great condition after last weeks snow and wind conditions.
Seems like too many people are afraid to just outright say it that way for political reasons.
The answer to mitigation on the public side of the fence is to de-populate, yet with the apparent source of the problem on the private side of the fence, we can’t de-populate there. Wouldn’t $4.57 million allow for a good start?
