am coming up with some buddies on Sat and renting a house from Brandt's. How has the bite been on the south side of the lake - Center Bar, 4 mile or 5 mile? no idea of where our house will be. Thanks for any replies.

He probably has you on Sloppy Joes reef, that's where he puts most of his rentals, maybe out on 4 mile.

We have our house on Sloppy Joes and it's been slow. I'll be up tommorow and I plan on spending the day on foot out near 4 and 5 mile. If I don't find anything I might pack up and head to the mud flats for the day.

I am taking my guy fishing on Tuesday out of KJ's and we have never been there before. Heard he has nice houses and roads. We are really hoping to find some fish and I would appreciate any advice/comments. We have been going out of Lyback's for a long time and the service and houses are excellent - just no fish. I know it is spotty everywhere. It is my fella's birthday and I am hoping for some fish out of KJ's. We will be out 7am to 7pm shift. I believe it will be Anderson Reef and Spirit Island area??? Have never fished this area before.

I was up last weekend, we fished Sloppy Joes, 4 mile gravel and 5 mile gravel. Same story everywhere, small perch is all we saw and it was tough to get them to bite.

Ditto on Izatys reef. Lots and lots of small perch on the camara. Very few takers.

Brandt's had us on Center Bar 28 FOW. we had an Aqua View Camera and saw alot of small perch, a cell phone, a flash light and some type of bottle on the bottom. Jerry Brandt also told us some person lost their $800 glasses down the hole. We thought we could see the part of the rims that go behind the ears sticking up. out of 5 guys in our group, I was the only one that caught any fish - 10 perch about 3" long. I have the Easy Byte attachment on the end of my rod tip and it does work great. You can see the easy byte tip move when the fish is nibbling on the lure. I used a Bro Bug on Sat and a Lindy Rattl'n Flyer spoon both with Eurolarvae. did not see any "Eyes".

We have access out of Isle Bay - turn right or left at the Supervalu.

Our houses have been catching jumbos...Mike came home with 40 between the two of them yesterday...we gave them away. He's out this AM and had 24 as of a couple hours ago.

Big schools move through and there has been a lot of action. Their bellies are pretty full of mayfly larvae so that is what you want to use.

      There is still a lot of ice out there, my best guess is that it should be pretty much ice free by the opener. Stay Safe Good Luck  Bear55

      I'll let ya know how rugged it is, it spent about 2 hours underwater when I put my wheeler through the ice a month ago. I'm scared to try and turn it on haha.

      Just wondering how much ice is left?

      I was in the Landing today to do some troubleshooting. Looks the same as it did. They’re working at getting ready.

      Thanks Borch:  this helps! I emailed the whole committee--hopefully one of them sees the ridiculousness in this. Basically:   1.)  the DNR set up a pilot.   2.)  The DNR analyzed their results and refused to enlarge the scope of the pilot 3.)  Legislature will, if passing this amendment, force the DNR expand a program that their own conclusions did NOT support expanding.  (* this is the time to insert your own clever comments about government doing stupid things contrary to evidence...)   Anyone that enjoys using the numerous MN lakes with public accesses NEEDS to take an active roll in this--let's overwhelm the server with emails from concerned fishers!; If we don't, I worry more and more lakes (associations) will place more and more barriers (in the "name" of AIS) to practically make the public lakes private...

      A bear in a residential area of North St. Paul was shot and killed today by a Department of Natural Resources conservation officer as authorities determined the animal posed an immediate safety threat.  The bear was a male and estimated as a two-year old, about 110 – 120 pounds. The bear carcass will be processed and the meat will be distributed to people in need of food. Due to the density of residences and roads in this area, it was unlikely that the bear would have been able to escape to more suitable habitat, especially during daylight hours and during the morning rush hour. Growing interest in the bear’s location was leading to a gathering of onlookers. Bears can become agitated and pose a danger to humans when they become trapped or cornered as this bear had become in the neighborhood tree. Law enforcement is authorized to dispatch bears in the metro area if they pose a public safety threat. The DNR does not tranquilize or relocate bears. Relocated bears seldom remain where they are released. They may return to where they were caught or become a problem somewhere else. It is not unusual for people to see bears in the spring as young males search out new territories. They are also are looking for food sources at a time when berries and vegetation are scarce. If people encounter a bear, the first thing they should do is back away slowly. They need to give the bear an escape route and make noise to scare the bear away. People should also clean-up and remove potential attractants such as bird feeders, garbage, and compost bins to reduce the chances of bears moving into developed and residential areas. Bear sightings outside of their primary northern forest range can be reported on an interactive map-based application on the Minnesota DNR website at mndnr.gov/hunting/bear/bear-sightings.html. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      A buddy and I fished Warroad yesterday, 730-400 5-fish biggest 39. We talked with a local guy who lives on the river said they have not came in hard yet. The 39 and 36 we caught were not spawned out. So we will give it another try next week. Also the ice seems to be going pretty fast  open I would say pretty close to a mile out, when it opened up in front of the docks 4-days ago, and its gonna get better.  Stay Safe Good Luck  Bear55

      Does anyone know where I can find out which lakes smothered out in the southern Minnesota areas? I have looked on the DNR website and can't seem to find out any information there. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
