Fished Friday from 4:30 to Midnight caught 1 Walleye then went out Sat for the lunch hour and didnt catch any then on Sunday went out from 1:30 to 6:00 and caught nothing I think it may be time to find a new spot or lake. Is anyone catching anything out there.

I haven't moved yet but I've been waiting for my buddy to get his plow truck fixed, so I can move right now I'm in 20 fow and I'm thinking about going deeper I wish I could find some crappies in Sallie but I've never caught one out there in the last 4-5 years. How about you leechbait have you been moving around out there?

Actually i'm on a different lake but, it seems to be the same pattern. I bet if you move it onto some new structure they'll bite. The structure closer to the deeper water has been producing the crappies lately. At the beginning of the season I was fishing structure ( weed edges near drop-offs ) and having good luck on a fresh spot for walleyes and an occasional crappie, every time I moved and it didn't have to be far even 30 feet or so would help. I was fishing in probably 16 feet next to water that got as deep as 20 or so. Now I'm closer to the deeper water 25+ fow and fishing around the 18-20 mark and doing pretty good on crappies. It slowed down for a bit and i moved my house along the drop prbably no more than 20 yards this time and been enjoying some decent crappie and bluegill fishing lately. Just something to think about I guess.

I think i am in a great spot out there but havent been out much yet. My buddy went out on saturday but couldnt get to my house. So they drove out on the access road as far as they could get. Caught two nice keepers ( thrown Back) right away and didnt talk to him after that. Heading to lake of the woods on sat-mon but will check back after fishing sallie on the 23rd..

dragon how good of an area are you in? I am looking for a spot for my perm when I get back this weekend from upper red. I have a plow on my truck so I could bust a trail for us. Just a thought if you dont want to share the spot I can understand completely. Let me know.

Well to be honest I really dont know for sure yet, I will have to try it out again next week and see. I am just guessing due to structure and summer reports. I know Im not much help yet but maybe I will be when I get my butt back out there.

Dead, hitman MAY use my four hole house on saturday, your welcome to join him if you guys hook up, ( depending on who he is going with..) I have given him all the info on the house and he knows exactly where it is. Hard to get another house out there with the snow now. Go ahead and join him in my house if you like. Unless you guys dont like each other, HA!!!!!

I will be at lake of the woods so have at it....

hey dragonman, thanks for the generous offer. I'll probably be hole hopping and checking out some spots, likely snooping around in the area near your permanent.

If I saw dahitman out there, I was going to give him a taste of sweet justice wink

Dragon how far out are you and how deep of water are you in? If you go by structure then I'm in a great spot but the fish are few and far between. I've tried slip bobbers with glow jigs, non glow jigs, jigs that look like bugs, plain hooks, and swedish pimples. I've also tried fatheads, shiners, suckers, and crappies. It seems like the only time i get a bite is when I'm not paying attention or I'm out of the house and come back in and my bobbers gone.

Dragon is on his way to LOW --

I helped him with the spot -- he is in like 20 fow and 22 fow and on the edge of structure that drops off to deep water.

It should be good - -I had great luck there this summer, but neither of us have had a chance to hit it much.

In fact me - -zero times. I just waste my time on Pelican ... wink

Do you think the eyes have gone to the deeps and are done for the year? Should a guy start hittin the crappie bite and forget about eyes til he can get up North.

I think most go out from the access right next to the DNR headquarters right by the river. If you go East from the County 6 gas station about a mile or so, you will see a public access sign. Head south there and it will be down a few miles. There is a fork in the road where if you go to the left you go to the DNR station or to the right, you go to the public access.

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