all the Red Wing landings are still froze in. I would think in about 7-10 days with this nice weather it should be out. ill keep you posted. the wisc. channel one mile over the high bridge should be in pretty good shape by this weekend. the saugers are moving up to the dam a lot of good reports are coming in orange-chart and yellow 3/8 oz hair jigs tipped with a fat head minnow seems to be best. also brite colored blade baits. to kick off our spring season we have a buy one get one free scoop of minnows this weekend only. good luck IKE.

If all the landings around Red Wing are still frozen, is the only option to get on the river on the Wisconsin side? Just over the bridge on the Wisconsin side, is that public landing open?

Planning on heading down this coming weekend and stopping by Ikes to take advantage of the deal on minnows, and some helpful advice.

The WI channel is open. I used it Friday and Saturday only because I was one of the first ones to use it. The ramp gets very icy. Evert's is the best option if the temps are below freezing.

I would say the spawn will be from April 1st to the 9th. Seriously. The water is already 38-39. 42 to 45 degrees is the key temp, or 45? I'd say you picked it right.

      DLD I'll keep rigging as long is I can keep catching good fish but entering into August I'll start to pull leadcore more.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
