Northerns - Warroad

Recommended Posts

leechmann

Anyone been trying for big slimmers out of Warroad. I was also curious how much snow is up there. Down here in Park Rapids, we have 2 1/2 feet of snow on the ice and the slush is a problem. Is slush a problem up there?

Slush isn't too bad some places there is a little some places there is none. It all depends on how thick the ice is and snow cover. On the west side this year the ice thickness verys from 20-30 inches we had a tarble freeze up this year. As far as the northerns go I would wait till mid march or into april depending on the ice conditions. Most of the big northers don't start to run up the rivers and ditchs till we get some runoff. If u want to get some big pike this time of the year I would go to any of the reefs around warroad (rooties, DNR, South tip, 5mi) and fish for eyes around the edges and put tipups on top of the rocks. with a sucker.

Hey leech, if your up to LOW mid season an later it pays to put a tip up with a cisco a foot under the ice in deep water, I have seen extreamly large pike cruse right under the ice hole several times, an the biggest one I've seen, it's back was as wide as the hole. Those pike cruse under the ice in populated area of houses an pick up dinks that dont survive, you may think it was healthy when released but alot of times they dont make it an float up to the ice an the pike have learned this. It's worth setting up a tip or two if your with a groupe of guys in this mannor. Later boar

Sounds like a great idea. My son and I went up there last year and we caught 2 of them over 40 inches in the same day. We caught maybe 10 or 12 altogether. Thanks for the idea.

Leech- I was just in warroad twice over the last two weeks. Slush is not a problem, but the snow is much too deep to drive off the road. I got one Ike out of springsteel in 18 feet fishing walleye. I would suggest fishing out of springsteel in 10-14 feet with suckers, it seems when I fish walleye out their in 14 feet I always get bit off by big Ike. I dont think you can get out to the weedy area from springsteel's road now, but there is a road out of the estate's.

How is the ice out of Warroad there? I will be bringing a group of kids up there to fish pike. Is it safe to drive or are people taking atv's out there?

Thanks for the info and helping some kids have a safe, fun trip!

      Well it's all how you look at it grasshopper! 😉

      Well “sadly”. Yes I just said that. Winter is coming to an end and gross summer is near. The hot temps, Humidity, mosquitoes, crazy busy boat landings, drunk boaters. The worst time of the year is near. Life is so blah now. No snowmobiling, no ice fishing, ( I wouldn’t be done for awhile yet but mom won’t let me go anymore😳), I mean really!? I could still drive my truck out What’s more dangerous late ice or being out on first ice on 2”-4”? It’s just water, mud and by far my least favorite time of year. This winter just went by way way to fast! But it is what it is. Can’t believe it, but so long winter 18-19😭🙋‍♂️. In summary probably one of the top ice seasons for me! It’ll make me feel better if I can share some pics with y’all. Enjoy! This is only a VERY few select pics from the winter. Biggest walleye- 21” (caught 3 total all caught while fishing for crappies or gills). Biggest gill- 9-3/4”. Biggest crappie- 13”. Total ice outings 29. (I wanted one more to reach 30). 26 angling outings, 3 dark house spearing outings.

      I am new to catfishing, and live near the stretch of the Mississippi river above the Ford lock and dam to the Marshall Ave. bridge. I have walked along the shore, and found some spots I think would hold some catfish. My only concern is how shallow the river is here. I will be trying these spots within the next two weeks. I am curious if anyone has had success in this section, or will I be wasting my time?

      I just wrote to those five people. I am amazed at how I live in the South Haven area and yet every time I learn about these meetings after they happen. And they don’t understand why we feel they want us to stay off “their lake”.  Need to be more open and up front publicly about these meetings. As I have stated before in another forum, I have not fished Sylvia since this was implemented. Also I have not bought bait or boat gas in South Haven the last 2 years. I will spend my money where it is welcomed. I have been cleaning my boat at landings for years, plus power washing it when I get home. I am sure many good anglers/boaters do as well and for them to make us go through this inspection, which is out of the way and not even open 24 hours is rediculous. I am all for stopping the spread of AIS, but there needs to be better ways of doing a it than keeping the lake from all users.  We need everyone to get involved in this even if you don’t live near these lakes.  AIS is affecting us all but we need everyone to speak up about how it will be dealt with, or more lakes will be “closed” to the public with this inspection program.

      Ten Point what resort were you out of?  Thinking of going up this weekend.
    • gimruis
      I haven't seen many yet. I did see a good number of pheasants on a drive to and from Pierz the other day though.

      My point was that I don't want ANY ethanol in an engine/motor that gets used for a while and then sits there - that's why I run ethanol free premium in them.  The ethanol sits there and gums up vital engine parts.  All of my irregular use engines are modern 4-strokes that run very smoothly and use a minimal amount of fuel and I'm going to do everything I can to keep them like that.  I use normal 87 or 89 octane unleaded in my truck because I use that almost every day all year round.

      Got 5 nice 12"ers to fill my special regulation lake limit.. Morning bite was as good as evening bite has been. Released another 7 smaller 10" class fish. Fished 545-700 am. Crappie minnows were the bait of choice today. 1 rod was all I could handle with these suicidal slabs. Had one snap my 4# test flourocarbon leader on the hookset.
