Has anyone been out there this year? Ice safe? Never been on the lake, want to spend a full day out there, looks like a challenge to get on some good fish!! Otherwise i'll probably just go on buffalo.

If you've never been out there before, right now isnt your best option. Its not even completely frozen over, so Buffalo would be a better bet. A few guys are fishing out there, but they're hugging the shoreline

Heading out to Pulaski after lunch today, we are going to be looking around with under water camera along the sw shorline looking for weedline. Open water is still around on Pulaki, not a good idea to venture anywhere.

Very uneven freezing here on the north end. Entrance to Little Pulaski is skim ice that is not getting any thicker. Looks like the springs are active because of all the water this summer, holes in the ice close to shore.

Went out last night on pulaski, not a! Not one fish on the vexi all night. There was some dumb [email protected]'s driving atv all over like a maniac. Flying by our fish house like we didn't exsist many times over. Had to move down the lake because the mutual respect was not there.

I saw some northerns laying on the ice, glad they were catching the stinky fish and not me.

Where were you fishing and exploring pulaski? I saw a couple portables out last night around 9:00pm. I'm thinking of hitting the lake again soon, looking for panfish, maybe some pike for fun.

I too was on Pulaski on Saturday evening, with my wife. She doesn't fish much with me but we got grandma to baby sit and she decided to join me. We thought it would be fun to walk out together and enjoy a quiet night. NOT! We were also bombarded by a four wheeler and a 3 wheeler, REPEATEDLY! I can take a couple passes by me, but after doing spin out after spin out up as close as 50 feet from my house then passing by my small portable for the 5th time at 20 feet.....well my you can say I was not at all happy.

Being the only person fishing in a half mile area, I began to ask myself why are they doing this? Do they not want me fishing here? do they not want me to catch fish..maybe they are just kids that don't know better. When I heard them coming close and saw that they would be coming close to my house, I quickly got out of my house and yelled at them to get their attention, as I was not feeling safe being in my portable anymore. With the sound of the machine and wearing helmets I had to yell to get their attention. I gestured with my hands to do their Joy riding in the direction of an area where there was no one fishing, then got back in my house. They drove away then came back giving me a wide berth, I thought "great they got my point" and this will be the end.....

Well after 5-10 minutes, the 4 wheeler and 3 wheeler came back...with different individuals on them. The first one riding the 4 wheeler, donned in camo and a ball cap, proceed to circle my fish house revving his engine in a controlled power slide staring at me the whole time, I guess he felt he needed back up, as he was followed up by the other in the 3-wheeler. I stayed in my house, not out of fear, believe me. But by quickly rationalizing that you cant reason with these type of individuals. Responding to their HARASSMENT, would only make things worse and prolong their disrespectful behavior.

So I will sum this up by saying this. If you let your kids ride 4 wheelers on public, please teach them to be respectful of others out enjoying themselves, before you let them ride. If they come back and tell you they got yelled at, make it a teaching moment. Please don't come back to THREATEN me and my wife. Act like a grown-up and have respect for others...especially other sportsmen.

Tommy,

I'm sorry to hear about your experience, and those who were harassing you had no business doing so. I would suggest, however, that rather than posting your frustration here that you call the Wright County Sherrif's office and file a complaint. If you know where the offenders came from on shore and can give a description of their vehicles, all the better. I would imagine there could very well be a ticket and a nice fine in store for them if they continue this behavior, but no one reading these posts can do anything about it.

There are laws on the books against harrassing hunters and anglers. This would fit right in there. I would have called with my cell phone while out on the lake and told them what was going on. Sounds like a couple of selfish A$$ you know whats to me.

Hey Tommy, Glad to read your story. I was actually fishing right next to the house with the kids on atv and 3 wheeler. Its kinda funny, I heard the kids tell their dad you yelled at them. Dad half drunk starting saying how this is a public lake and you can drive anywhere you want etc etc. That was my final straw, I folded up camp and went down the lake. Can't stand ignorance!

For those that have fished the lake recently, what are the ice conditions like? Anyone venturing out to the humps on the west side yet?

Matt,

The open water east of the big sunken island only froze over a week and a half ago. I was going to walk out there, and try to avoid all the mess, but with the new dusting of snow we got, and not knowing what the ice was like...I opted out of that idea. WE did have a few nights sub zero weather, but lately it has been in the 40s during the day.

If I were to venture out, I would definately go with a buddy, WALK.. poke a lot of holes on the way. There are a lot deep springs out that way. so be careful if you do. Just because you see tracks or a house set up there, don't assume the whole area is safe. My parents live right on the lake for the past 30 years, and that spot is always the last to freeze...in the entire state.

concerning the other topic....I get warm and fuzzies knowing that an adult would harrass and threaten another fisherman after he lets his children break state statutes. Ignorance is Bliss in the World of Entitlement.

Some people have NO CLUE, A good one would maybe try for public intoxication, or a DUI this guy needs to drive home at some point. the second he even starts the motor it GAME OVER.

How does anyone know for a fact that the kid's father was drinking? Funny that people automatically assume someone is drunk just because they are acting like a jerk.

      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".   
    • Borch
      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket

      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
