Saved the worst for last.

I went out Saturday and fished five different lakes with very little luck.

Tried lots of different depths from 4-22 ft. It was all garbage.

I was in the Kinston, Dassel area.

I'm done with the ice. Bring out the long rods.

Much the same here on Sunday and Monday,I am hanging up the icefishing stuff and getting the boat ready.

Note about the ice conditions; There were spots that were very "soft and spongy", I was surprised to see how fast it got bad.

The crappies have moved in several times and then we get a cold front blowing in and they move back out. With the forecast of above normal temps things should get interesting soon.

Yeah, conditions are lining up nicely. Should be a good opener.

Well, how'd people do this past weekend. I heard lots of reports, but walleye fishing was spotty at best. A few fish here and there, but I think some clear water may have played a factor in a tough day bite for most.  I had a few nice walleyes, bass and crappies. Plenty for a fish fry and some pics. The memories were the most important part. Had a good time with my dad.

Spotty seemed to be the word I heard about the opener as well.

Made it out today to Clearwater. Didn't get to the lake till about 10 but targeted some eyes and got one around 11 that was 19 and a half.  I don't have much experience out there but tried lots of spots pulling a jig up the drops with leeches. Might be to soon for the leeches. Also got a few pike.

Fished cedar lake this evening. Moved around alot when I first got out there just trying to mark fish n jigging a leech quick at each spot. Not much activity ended up getting one 14 inch eye in about 15 ft bobber fishing. Hoping for some good warm stable weather.

Hit up an area lake Friday night and Saturday morning. Friday night casted jigs and crank baits. Caught one 24" on a crankbait, nothing on the jig. Saturday it was game on, fished 7'-12' with a jig and  half a crawler and jig/leech. Caught around 30 eyes between my buddy and I. Nothing real big but tons of mid range fish (14"-17") with a couple cigars as well. Water temp was around 67*.  Here is the 24"er, t-boned a perch pattern trolls to 15' rapala. Not sure how to spin it I think it's sideways, whatever I'm going to bed. image.thumb.jpg.9049695657aa4e18e449b549

The walleyes are definitely transitioning to more of the summer spots now. Water temps are creeping up there now. I saw 72 on an area lake yesterday.

Eyes are still going though. The heat is coming though, going to change everything in a week or two.

The lake are getting hotter and greener by the day. Won't be long and we will be able to walk across the scum on top.

Going to take my daughter out tomorrow for some fishing, has anyone been having any luck at Stella, Washington, Long or Spring? Would like to get her into some pike and panfish and may be a eye or 2. Thanks

Nothing biting on Hook??

Minnebelle would be good for action. Lots of bass, sunfish and some monster pike and walleyes.

Lots of small ones, but at least we are seeing fish this spring compared to last. Hopefully we will see some size to them after this summer, LOTS weds but water is still very clear. So the fish kill seems to be a benefit in the long run.

Went to Stella and was able to get a few bass and Northerns and had a pair of loons hanging around the boat so she was happy :) Been wanting to hit up Mini Belle ever since we looked at a house out there, might try to hit it next week - thanks!

Fished the western section of Clearwater Lk last night with terrible results. Fished mainly for sunfish, but also threw a Carolina rig for bass in key areas. I don't think I've ever seen the lake so dead, both for fishing and boating activity. Put this lake low on your list for fishing fun.

      i did find out i have that same one on my 2016 and found the specs, max draw is 1625 during their "desert" test; from stuff I've found on my champion generator's website I cant tell if it'll work or not as they stated some will...

      I took a couple of guys from church out last night. They fish about once every couple years. I didn't think they would have the patience for walleye fishing so we went after pannies. Caught a couple of sunnies right away. For me they were small but these guys were just pumped to catch 7-8 inch sunnies! Fished for them a bit until we had about 15 in the live well. They wanted to clean them so I was fine with that. I then took them to one of my crappie spots. Not sure if they have ever caught a crappie before, right away I caught a small 9 inch one and of the guys was kind of upset I through it back. A minute later he hooks into a 13". Pretty sure most of North Becker county heard him hooting, hollering! I was laughing so hard! It is always blast taking out folks that love fish but don't fish very often. That to me is just strange. Especially around here with tons of lakes and great fishing. It wasn't fast and furious but still a solid  bite. Took about an hour to catch our 30 fish limit of great eaters. Most in the 11-12" range. I found them scattered along the weeds in 9-12', simple plastic with a twister tail or a paddle tail. It always super fun taking out fishing newbies. Pretty sure FB was full of their pictures last night!

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.
    • Mike89
      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".
