I was out there a couple weeks ago and after dark sourced four limits of crappies in a 40ft hole. They weren't big enough to get me back out there.

Didn't find any sunnies of any size, lots of small perch and no flags all day.

I was on West and East Rush yesterday. While I did pretty good with the crappie bite, I wanted to check out Goose lake. I went south on 4 but mabe I should have taken 8 south from rush lake.?

I wanted to check goose for walleyes in the evening. I made a wrong turn somehwere as I ended up on cty 10- a far cry from Goose.

Where is the winter access to goose.

Thanks.

We had planned to try goose yesterday. The guy at the bait store in Harris said there are a lot of springs in the lake and he advised not going out unless you knew exactly where to go. We drove by it and only a couple of trucks on the lake. Needless to saynot worth the risk.

I have not fished the lake this year, but as I recall, there is usually a road plowed out from where the lakes come together out to the south end. I have driven a full size truck out there many times. Not sure if anyone plowed it this year. As for walleyes, I have caught a few fishing for crappies, so if you target them, I bet you could do decent. I believe there's a special slot (17 inches?) though.

Thanks.Walleye Slot limits are good. The crappie limit is 5

I hear, and that as well is good.

Catch and release is even better yet.

      What a difference a couple of warmer days make.  I had great snowmobile travel conditions on Burntside on Tuesday.
    • JerkinLips
      I know it was not Vermilion but I was on Burntside Sunday-Wednesday and found the travel conditions great with the snowmobile.  Had 30" of ice, but the top 10-12" was white and there was a 1" water layer under 2" of top white ice.  The top was softening up when we left Wednesday afternoon.  The bottom 2' of ice was nice and clear, so it will be solid for a while.  If they get cold weather up there for a few days, the lakes could be very good traveling for most vehicles since the deep snow has flattened and most of the water on top has drained or evaporated.  If it gets cold, I may be back up on Burntside for the end of March.

      Can someone please post pics and or videos of the Minnesota State Record Lake Sturgeon caught by @DTro. The story about the aftermath would be cool too.   How is the St. Croix River looking? Anyone out fishing it?   Fishing reports please?

      I have not seen any, but I am not out in the country much yet. I need the snow to drop quite aways before I can get back to most of my spots.

      Spring is no slouch for activities though! Here’s a list of (fun) possibilities for even this weekend:   Sapping Shooting - rifle range Shed hunting  Still enough ice to fish through Some open water to cast to Still ‘Nuff night light yet for yotes  Scout for turkeys Snow goose season is open too   It’s too bad though I have to include some other stuff for the weekend:   Helping move someone Taxes Annual files cleaning HVAC maintenance  Some catching up at work Snow plow repair/maintenance   At least I can count on getting stuff from BOTH sides accomplished!

      I ran into a couple guys at the gas station when getting minnows today and we started chatting about this.For access to these lakes without an inspection they said this is what you want to do-Have someone who isnt going fishing come with you and launch your boat they drive away with truck and trailer and come pick you up later.Not a great option for all but if you live nearby the restricted lakes they said this works.I like their style

      March 21 - saw my first goldeneyes of the spring migration tonight.  They were cruising south so I imagine they were scouting further north but didn’t find the water they were looking for.   There are spots open on the river but not much around Little Falls yet.  Judging by the looks of the ice though I’ll be seeing open water by Sunday.

      Any fishing reports?   With this warmer weather, has anyone been out?   What are the ice conditions in the Bemidji area?
