wmn luv me walleye fearme

was out at rogers last wednesday through sat. Wednesday thursday were great. Picked up about 25 walleyes each day. Most were 14-19 inches. Almost all deadsticking. Caught only about 4 with the spoon. Friday it slowed down a lot then saturday we hit winnie. Biggest were a couple of 22 inchers. People at rogers were great would go back there next time for sure. No perch, no crappies, no pike all walleyes

What do you mean by deadsticking? Rod, sinker, hook, with live minnow or are you using a bobber?

That is exactly what dead sticking is!!!!! I will jig mine every so often, but it just to wake to minnow up...

just minnow, glow jig (red worked best for us) and bobber. I wasnt even able to lure them in with the jigging spoon.

I was up there a few weeks ago and I would not jig a fish up... Glow pink jig or demon jij worked the best...

We went out of Rogers also. 46 walleyes and 1 northen. Jigging did little. Most everything was caught on rattle reels with bobbers.

Great weekend!! Jerry is wonderful. I'd recommend Rogers to anyone looking to catch fish!

i spoke to his wife when i was going in on wednesday for a while. Told her I was going to be there until saturday and was expecting to pay for 4 days of a road pass. She asked if i would be on red most of the time. Said yes told me they only charge for 1 day then. He had tons of spots plowed out for the wheelers which was great to. Spoke to a couple of the plow guys that run there operations out of there and even though i wasnt renting from them they were plenty helpful to.

Yep. Same experience. We ran into Jerry when we hit the lake. he was plowing. He said "follow me" and took us to a new road he had just plowed. He had about 6 "slips" plowed for people to use wheel houses or portables. He plowed another spot WAY down on the end and put me there. We caught fish!!

Satuday morning we had multiple new friends show up and jump into the other plowed spots.

Jerry and his wife are amazingly helpful!! We have gone out of many of the roads over the past few years. Rogers is right on the top, tied with one or two others. Jerry and crew do a great job of making you feel welcome, sharing recent experience and advice, and plowing an assortment of areas to fish. I'll be back up really soon!

      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?
