The fall usually finds me chasing roosters, grouse and ducks. We may try the river this fall. When does the fall bite usually pick up? Thanks

Usually in the fall. The bite has been decent lately. The fish on the wing dams seem to pretty good one day and maybe a little slower the next. Trolling seems to be the most consistent bite. Started getting fish on hair jigs over the weekend. Hope this means I can be done messing with crawlers soon.

In general 55 degrees and the fish really start to take off. Hair jigs and crank baits will shine in the mid 50's till the temps get to the mid 40's. Then a box of jigs and plastics are all you will need. Cranks and hair will still produce but you can see right away that you really have to slow down. The water is so slowwwww..... We will be lucky to see late season water this year. Worried that it could go from fall to ICE with no flow on us. We should be right at the mid 50's range now so I would say to go anytime now and be ready to run and gun with those crank baits for the next couple weeks if your searching.

Got out on Pool 2 Monday afternoon after a slow morning on a lake. The crankbait bite is definitely on! We were hoping to find some smallmouth, and we found just about everything. Riprap shorelines, rocks, & large laydows all put fish in the baot. The white bass were quite active, and BIG! I think we got 5 or 6 white bass in the boat over 15" with the biggest being near 17", not to mention they had some monster bellies on them. Also boated, 3 smallies, probably 5 walleyes (lost the 2 best fish of the day, 1 for each of us), a largemouth and all those white bass too.

We were finding the fish mostly in 3-8' on the breaks, but we never tried much deeper. Might have gotten into more fish if we had, who knows. The white bass definitely were shallower though, with most hits coming very quickly on the casts, and they were in groups for sure.

Great way to end a day after a frustrating morning either way. Get after em!

      Does anyone have A 5 person sleeper ice house for rent during February 6th through the 10th?

      Police brutality is a concern right now in many areas, and everyone is working to safeguard their rights. But it is this situation itself that needs to be examined. Having knowledge of police brutality was really helpful to me. Try this at . There is a ton of information here https://supremestudy.com/essay-examples/police-brutality/ on it, which you may also examine in further detail huge learn more about. I hope it will be helpful to you

      Finding between 3-7 inches of ice around most of the st cloud area. Was on one of the bigger lakes and one of the shallower ones in our area today. On the larger lake,  lots of ice in the bays, but main lake had roughly 3 inches where I checked.  The Shallow one had right around 7 inches.  Fish bit very well on one, and not so great on the other.

      Polkiss this...   Logging is the only way out of the Smokey the Bear debacle. We've created so much fuel in the understory from fire suppression. Logging, BIGTIME may be the only answer. Top off the past century of fire suppression with now hundreds of thousands of acres of bug kill in our mature forests when as much as a bug farts, millions of acres lie waste to everything from fire, even micro organisms in the soil. Then heavy rain, or snowmelt washes away what's left...... Log Baby Log 👍👍 and flood the mills with wood, not ash.

      many thanks to you all for providing the information.  it is appreciated.

      Knowing and comprehending it myself For instance, logging has increased significantly over time. This can't possibly be permitted. I can speak for myself when I say that we now need to consider how to read about this essay [source] because I was able to learn a lot and even used this information to write a course at the university. Therefore, if anyone needs some knowledge about deforestation, it is useful from both a theoretical and practical point of view. Everyone must protect the environment!

      Welcome to the forum. Thanks for the safety tip.  Always good to know where springs in lakes are!  👍

      Ok I did not check ice thicknesses yet but green, blue, baxter, lori, and elk all had anglers on them. I hope to check thicknesses soon.
    • Cookie123
      There is also some springs in the way back of blue lake ( In nashwauk MN) If you go back there you may run into some if you go to the right or the left there is some both directions so I would suggest not going back there or if you do i would check the ice every 25ft or so at least have fun out there
