I dont understand why when poeple talk about how they have seen increased pressure, tresspassing, and littering on and near our lakes, since the advent and popularity of fishing forums, non-stock holders of said forums get so defensive.

I too do not want to start anything.

Not much of a poster on this forum, but I do visit it. And as far as I know, I'm yet to contribute to the decimation of a fish population in any of the lakes I read about on here.

I do however, find it ironic that someone who so strongly complains about how these forums are used to exploit fisheries mentioned in this forum, uses it to voice his position on how they've ruined fish populations. I think everyone on here has used forums to their advantage, either to become more efficient fishermen through the use of technology, e.g. clothing, electronics, lures, etc., techniques, or locations. Very ironic.

what better place to do it. these are the people who should be reading it.

And you just proved a long standing point that I have seen brought up time and time again. Just look at how many people read all of the info on here (number of views) for particular topics, and how many of those same people ever post anything or are even a registered user for that matter. I have seen topics with fewer than 10 posts, yet thousands of views.

jjjohnson, if your intentions on writing that were to help keep the lakes in the area on the down low, you FAILED. Good job buddy.

personaly, i have been on these forums for less than a year and have been only on three regional forums as far as fishing is concerned. not one post encouraged me to fish lakes other than the ones i fish anyway. crappie "villiages" have been around as long as i can remember on lakes that i fish. i fish well known lakes in the duluth area and never seen them overun by multitudes of anglers and have fished them since i have been a kid. i'm glad i have a wheeler so i can get around better. i'm glad i have a flasher to aid me with structure and fish. i'm glad i have a underwater camera to have some fun for me and my grandkids. i think HSO helped more than hurt the fishery. there is a lot of information for beginners and for me who always is looking to learn more. fishing is important to the economy of the state as well. less fishing licences sold is less income for many in minnesota and the dnr. i think there are more people who keep enough for a meal and enjoy just being out there. why participate in the fishing forums if you feel they hurt the fishery? i will continue to help anyone who wants to enjoy the outdoors with ideas that i have learned from others that have made me love being outdoors. good luck.

IMO-the furom is a great place to ask for info - ice conditions, lures, baits ,etc. Greed is what drives people to fish out a lake. I have had times when i have iced alot of fish and keep just a few and times when i haven't caught any - but i still get to be out there. If i mention a small lake that could be hurt -i usually just say a local lake ( 75 mile radius of my house) With all the other info out there (books, outdoor papers, lake chips, etc) i'm not sure these forums are giving info that can't be found else where. Thats just my opinion.

Ruby Lake by Marcell, MN has massive 28-30+ walleyes in the lake.  It's a best kept secret.  The small landing can only handle 3 trucks or so.  If you want to catch massive walleyes, just use a 1/4 oz lindy rig, plain hook, and a leech or crawler.  I'm not gonna give you the coordinates, you need to find them.

 

Good luck,

Welcome to HSO  @JavaGuy....I take it you had a problem with someone while out fishing Ruby or something else maybe?

      Heading to the Virginia Mn area Ice fishing in a few weeks. I've fished the Duluth area most of my life but finally spreading out a bit. 
      Not hoping to get anyones "spot".
      How are ice conditions? Anywhere to stay away from safety wise?
      Any dead lakes that would be a waste of my time on a limited trip?
      Thanks yall

      Hey everyone!
       
      Heading up to the Gunflint area this weekend to do some trout fishing.. Anybody been out recently?  How thick is the ice? 
       
      Was planning to put the new ice saw to use and do some sight fishing but curious how the conditions are?
       
      Thanks!

      Fished hard for 3 days on Big Stone Lake and the bite was very, very tough.  The nice Marked a lot of fish and just couldn't get them to bite. Did manage some dandy perch and trophy gills,(released) but not a lot of numbers.  Saturday late afternoon we stuck 3 gills over 10".  My nephew had one that was at least 10 1/2" but released it before I could measure or get a pic.  Sunday we had 2 more at or just under 10".  Had to downsize to get bit.  Did catch a couple on set lines with fatheads.   Spoons didn't get bit often.  Tungsten jigs or flies tipped with plastics or eurolarvae got most of the action.  
      Found fish in or near basin areas near shallower rock structures.  We would drill, drill and then drill some more.  Once we found fish we would make smaller moves or wait out schools cruising through the area. Travel conditions were excellent.   Just had to watch out for the occassional drift or old plowed road.  Here are a few pics from the weekend.

      Fished several NE Wright county lakes got on some really nice bass with panfish jigs the smaller the better. Had a flurry for about half hour many largemouth caught. Then did a night bite for the crappies It really pays to move around. Also learned from some on the MInnow or not to minnow thread to upsize I used a small forage minnow spoon with 3-4 spikes that really was the ticket. Thanks all for the help everyone. The fish seem to me to be just starting to move a bit shallower with the warmer weather coming this weekend it should just get better. Most of the fish were in 12-17 feet of water.

      On the south end...  Some big walleyes caught this week up at Lake of the Woods along with eaters and saugers.  Good fishing still happening 16 - 22 miles out on the ice and most reports are good.  Ice conditions on LOW remain excellent at around 30 inches where most are fishing.  Best colors vary but on sunny days gold has been consistent.  On cloudy days, glow pink, green, orange and chartreuse good colors.  Don't be afraid to downsize presentation if fish are not active.  Small spoon with a minnow head.  A plain hook with a small minnow can be very effective.  Electronics helping anglers catch suspended walleyes.  Pike are getting more active and anglers reporting good success.
      On the Rainy River...   The river is frozen over with snowmobile traffic on marked trail.  Some reports of local anglers catching a few walleyes in the river but most anglers hitting the lake.  Extra caution is always needed on the river, especially with higher current this year.  Thin ice around the International Bridge in Baudette.  Work through resort or know ice conditions if ice fishing the river as ice thickness varies.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Ice fishing in full swing up at the Angle.  Resorts in 26 - 32' of water.  A mix of walleyes and saugers with some jumbo perch and pike in the mix.  The snowmobile trails from south shore to Angle in great shape.  Jigging with a bait with rattles has helped to pull in walleyes.  Fish houses on the ice through March 31st, walleyes and saugers open through April 14.

      Member only ...looking for some reports near Wright county area or even west and north of there.  Been fishing this small lake out near South Haven and been crushing 9.5 inch gills  and 12 inch crappies the last 2 months.  Went back last week after take a 2 week break and everything was suspended and tiny. Before everything was just off weeds deep and coming from botto....not sure what happened  but fish were loaded like a xmas on the flx28, maybe oxygen levels? First pic of the crappies took me and friend 1 hour and 20 holes... so much fun!!!!

      💥💥💥Found a portable left on the ice 2/15/20 at about 4 30pm. Had been there over a day as it had snow drifted around it. If you can describe it, and where on the lake I would love nothing more to get it back to the owner. Thanks!!!!💥💥💥

      Welcome to FM @bigpunfun   You should also try the Vermilion- Virginia Forum.   Someone looking at this will hopefully help you out.   Have fun and please be sure to come back and let us know how you do. Pics are awesome too.

      From where it is, I would guess ATT if anything.     https://www.att.com/maps/wireless-coverage.html (zoom in and enter zip code for that area.  Cook is 55723 so that's a start.  Looks like ATT has coverage.  Tmobile roams on ATT.

      Heard browns fight but nothing like steelhead. took probably 20 min to get mine in. 
    • bigpunfun
      I've personally spent years catching crappie with minnows.  Usually I will drop a dead stick with a minnow and jig another line with a waxie. Have similar luck on each rod. Always depends on what the fish want of course. I like to give them the most options.

      Always dreamed of getting out and exploring other great lakes. Got to fish Lake Superior a few times out of Duluth and it changes my ice fishing life!

      Always looks like a blast with those jawjackers or auto fisherman.  Fighting those big Browns and steelhead on a short rod through a hole in the ice on light line would be fun.
