I called 8 inches of good ice/2 inches of frozen slush and snow.  I did use a flip over today and had the pilot light on the little buddy to thaw out my lunch - a smoked duck breast.  So yeah, in my w

They’ve been Snowmobiling across breezy bay the last 1-2 weeks. (Breezy point resort webcam) Not sure about the main lake yet closer to shore to maybe the first breaks might be fishable.

Went out for a couple hours tonight.  Conditions were much better south of Brainerd than last week east of Brainerd.  Tonight’s lake has had more traffic on it but also less snow.  
 

There was a good 8 inches of ice  where there was no slush but 25 feet away in the slush there was the typical 5 I’ve been seeing and hearing about in the area.

 

We got there at the tail end of the bite and put up about a half dozen crappies each.  Better than deep couch sitting on a Friday night.

be very careful on the bigger lakes, big sandy has little ice, all the snow has slush on most lakes, and no ice being made. I have heard 3 inches of good ice, with slush, then 3 inches of bad ice over it. with the weather forcast, its looking no better with warm, rain and more heavy snow over it. most have been walking out, even on the smaller lakes that froze up early.

Got out today for the mid day bite. Mixed bag, over all found 7.5” good clear ice mostly wheelers and walking on the lake. I took my snowmobile and was trouble free not much for flooding and with my sled I had no issues at all as far as travel. 
 

Wanderer, that first pic with tape measuring ice all the ice looks terrible? Or did you just have the heat cranked up in the house today? 😂 Ice today for me was all great.

One other thing I didn’t mention: there is getting to be a a half dozen or so hard side houses out over the usual shanty town area of the lake.  We walked through (twice of course) on different lines and noticed a crack that seemed to run an orbit around shanty town.  There was also slush and standing water in shanty town.

 

It was as if someone could’ve predicted shanty town had the potential of sinking this year. 😉

We got about 3, maybe 4 inches of wet snow mixed with rain yesterday and misty rain a good portion of today.  I plowed my driveway of 2 inches of wet snow last night and just got done plowing slush off it from today.  We’re forecasted to get up to 6 more inches by Tuesday 😫 with fairly warm temps.  
 

I’ve been happy the general area between St. Cloud and Brainerd hasn’t been messed up too bad but I fear our time is running out. 😞

 

This holiday season please remember your local bait shop!  They’re in a tough spot too.  Bad end to the season last year and rough start this season.  For Little Falls, Da Fishin’ Hole Is getting my business the rest of the season for anything I’ll need.  Prices are good - I picked up a 9 Ah battery for $17  on Friday (sale price) and the bait is in great shape!  Places with other revenue lines will be just fine without my minnow money this year.

Any one been out or have any thoughts on what the slush conditions are like in central MN. 5-8” ice now, and Saturday lake I was on snowmobile travel was very good. Now with the past few day’s who knows what all happened. Hoping I’ll still be ok with snowmobile travel?

Took the sled for a quick spin tonight to gas er up and hit the lake to check conditions.  Not bad. 👍  Didn’t really seem too much worse for the wear of the past few days.  There’s still slush that’ll make some deep wheeler tracks but snow has crusted up some and the sled ride was fantastic.

Alright fisherman! For all of you thinking this is the end because of all this slush you couldn’t be further from the truth! I was out on 3 separate lakes today and drove by about half dozen. They are all about the same 7-9” good clear ice and 2-5” of slush. But with a sled you float over 80% of the slush because it already is frozen. Travel is really no more difficult now than it was the 3rd weekend in November when it was bare ice. If you have a sled ( short track or long track doesn’t really matter) you can go about anywhere assuming you have safe ice.

the report I got on my lake in palisade from nextdoor, 6-8 inches of good ice, a pocket of slush, then 3 inches of frozen slush over it. this was before the snow we got since sunday  which looks like 6 more inches. I would think snowmobile would be fine, just don't stop without clearing through first, and lake travel is bad for anything else.

Got out for a snowmobile ride yesterday morning before it warmed up. Trails we ok, but we could use about 6” more snow and a grooming. Went and checked out a local lake and made a loop out there and sure enough all the slush was froze solid. Never broke through once. There was a SxS out there to and they had no issues moving around on top of froze slush. We are in pretty good shape now actually!

A friend drove by Bass Lake by Cohasset and said it is a total slush hole. A guy had his snowmobile buried about 300yds out and was slogging out on foot knee deep.

What I found yesterday was a thick crust over most of the lake with pockets of slush and varying ice thickness below.  Walking was easier and I have to believe it would hold a snowmobile just fine.  

 

What got to me was some spots had 4-5 inches of frozen slush over 1-2 inches of water, then 3 inches of good ice.  Most of the bare spots had better ice underneath but water between was still common.

 

Please continue to be cautious.

I found a similar situation when I came across a tipup froze in with the flag up the other day. I unburied it and ended up pulling in a 10lb eelpout/ burbot. The layers of ice was odd. Dusting of snow, 4-6” froze slush, no water then what looked like 3-4” good clear ice. I didn’t have a tape as I was out on a sled ride so this was just a approx. A ton of a sled tracks in the area but defiantly cutting it a bit close If my sled weighted more than the 550lbs it weighs.  Then yesterday I found another tip up on a different lake 50 Miles apart again froze in someone forgot it. Remember your tipups before you leave!  If not I guess this means I will just be tipup fishing more! 😂

Went and checked a small lake last night on my way home. They’ve been driving out there for a few days and wanted to see how much ice there was. Found 10” up to just under 12” with 1-2” being froze slush. There was SUVs, jeeps, 1/2 tons, 1/2 tons with wheel houses and a 3/4 ton, and 3/4 ton with wheel house. I would HIGHLY recommend not driving out. We all just need to be patient there’s a lot of area with way less ice. I think for most of us fisherman a little walk won’t hurt. Plus now with little to no snow and slush froze up walking is is a breeze. Used the clam drill plate rig and got 25 holes through 12” ice average and still had a full charge on my battery. Loving that setup with the 6” lazer bit and 5ah dewalt battery’s.

Checked a lake Tonight before it got dark a bunch of buddies and I are gonna get together and fish tomorrow and found 13”-13-1/4” good clear ice. There was a van, couple SUVs and 10 or so half tons and one half ton had towed out a 24ft tandem ice castle. Should be pushing 14” of ice this time tommaorw as it made close to 3” already this week. I’d probably drive my half ton out but think I’ll take the snowmobile to gain mobility instead. Not much for snow and zero slush ( all froze up) gonna be a cold one but sunny and not much wind. Should be toasty warm in the insulated otter and new ice armor insulated float suit!

      On the south end...  A fun week of walleye fishing as the water temps cool to the low 60's and fall colors have started.  The walleye are transitioning to fall locations.  Three different methods used to catch walleyes this week.  Drifting spinners, trolling crankbaits and anchored up and jigging with a minnow, which is becoming more effective each week.  
      Walleyes setting up across the south shore and with more shiners running, this trend will continue.  Jigging with a frozen shiner or live fathead has really started to be effective.  Give it 30-40 minutes and set up in a different spot if there is no action.  
      Congrats to all MN Tournament Trail tournament anglers this past week.  The winning team had a 7.52 lb avg per walleye for 10 fish.  There are a lot of big walleyes in Lake of the Woods right now.
      Daily limit is a combined limit of six walleyes and saugers (with up to 4 being walleyes).   Don't forget the slot, 19.5" - 28" must be returned with one allowed over 28" per day.  
      Fall is an excellent time to fish walleyes.  If you like the jig bite, anchor up and jig over the side of the boat for a very enjoyable and typically memorable day.
      Pike are active and most are caught but unsuspecting walleye anglers.  The feedbag is definitely on.  
      On the Rainy River...   Emerald shiners continue to run in the Rainy River.  Some good runs so far, good angler reports and nice walleyes being caught.  Fall on the river is nice as a small boat will work just fine.
      Most walleye anglers on the river are anchoring up along an edge or in a hole with a jig and minnow.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River from Wheeler's Point through Baudette to Birchdale with lots of boat ramps.  
      Sturgeon activity has picked up as well with good fall reports.
      Up at the NW Angle...  
      Excellent fishing continues on both sides of the border.  In U.S. waters, deep mud of Little Traverse Bay continues producing walleyes in 24 - 31 feet.  Gold, white and orange spinners with a crawler or a minnow continue to be effective.  As water cools, minnows on some days are outfising crawlers.  
      Areas with structure continue to hold fish.  18 - 27 feet are good starting points.  Jig and a minnow is the goto on structure and neck down areas.
      Pike and muskie anglers are locating fish on weedy points using double blade spinners and topwater.  A lot of fish are caught on figure eight.
      Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.  Please note, no live, frozen or dead bait allowed into Canada from the U.S.  The various plastics on a jig are working well.  Contact a NW Angle resort for details.
      Charter boat transport and float planes are still available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air.

      On the south end...  Great walleye action this week with numerous pike mixed in.  Walleyes are starting to gravitate to fall patterns.  Walleyes being caught in various depths 13 - 34 feet of water.  Most anglers are still drifting with spinners or trolling crankbaits, but the jig bite is picking up steam. 
      Water temps in the upper 50's and low 60's.  Walleyes setting up across the south shore and with more shiners running, this trend will continue.  
      Reef fishing is starting to pick up.  Jigging with a frozen shiner on or near reefs is a fall goto and things are just starting.
      September and October are excellent months to fish walleyes.  If you like the jig bite, anchored up with a jig and minnow, this is a fun time of year.
      On the Rainy River...   Emerald shiners are continuing to run in the Rainy River.  Some good runs so far and walleyes are showing up.  Anglers are catching fish in the river.  Fall is here.
      Most walleye anglers on the river will anchor up along an edge or in a hole with a jig and minnow.  Fishing is taking place from Wheeler's Point to Baudette to Birchdale.
      Fall is a great time to fish sturgeon, bass and pike on the river, although the vast majority of anglers are after walleyes.
      Up at the NW Angle...  
      Excellent fishing continues on both sides of the border.  In U.S. waters, deep mud of Little Traverse Bay continues producing walleyes in 24 - 31 feet.  Gold, white and orange spinners with a crawler or a minnow is effective.  Minnows on some days are starting to be preferred by the walleyes.  Try both.  
      Areas with structure continue to hold fish.  18 - 27 feet are good starting points.  Jig and a minnow is the goto.
      Pike and muskie anglers are locating fish on weedy points using double blade spinners and topwater.  Some nice fish boated this week.

      On the south end...  Another really strong week of walleye fishing.  
      One of the main areas to fish is still deep mud.  Basically 28 - 34 feet of water.  Various schools of walleyes move around the basin relating to different kinds of forage.  
      Big walleyes eat a lot of everything but really key in on tullibees (ciscos) who live primarily in the basin.  Other forage can be perch, perch minnows, emerald shiners, blood worms, crayfish, and the list goes on.  
      Various schools holding shallower, over rocks or sand, based on bait options in that area.  Reefs are still holding fish, normally on the sides and base where rock meets the mud.   
      Drifting or trolling spinners with crawlers and trolling crankbaits are still very effective for catching walleyes this week.
      As we approach mid to late September and October, the jig bite will fire back up!
      On the Rainy River...   Walleyes hanging out in some of the deeper holes throughout the river.  Moving up and down the river, hitting numerous spots until you find which areas have walleyes is a good method for success.
      Some anglers trolling crankbaits to cover water.  Oftentimes, walleyes won't show up on electronics if they are laying in a depression in the river bottom.  Only way to know is to fish the area.
      Bass and pike are plentiful on structure, docks and weed edges.  Hitting various "goto" spots up and down the river is a fun and normally productive day.    
      The sturgeon "keep" season continues through Sep. 30.  Catch and release Oct 1 - April 23, 2022.
      Up at the NW Angle...  
      Great fishing continues on both sides of the border.  In U.S. waters, deep mud of Little Traverse Bay continues producing walleyes in 28 - 33 feet.  Gold, white and orange spinners with a crawler is effective.
      Underwater points, sunken islands and neck down areas with a bit of current in 18 - 27 feet holding fish.  These areas are good areas to jig.
      Pike and muskie anglers are still finding good fish on weedy points using jerkbaits and topwater. 
      Travel via vehicle through Canada to the Angle is open.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.  Contact a NW Angle resort for details.
      Charter boat transport and float planes are still available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air.

      How are the lakes across southern Minnesota? 
      Do they "green" up with the summer heat?
      Are there any lakes you would recommend for sunfish, crappie or perch?  
      Looking to do a day trip or 2 this fall to somewhere from Fairmont to Mankato.
       
      Any recommendations?
      Thanks!

      On the south end...  The walleye fishing remains good.  It really helps to be versatile.  It seems one day fish are set up in an area and the next they slid somewhere else.  
      There has been some good fishing in 25-29' in front of Pine Island.  When the south wind blows, the Zippel Bay and Graceton Beach area have been productive.  These fish have been in the 17-21' area and are mainly small fish and eaters with some slots thrown in.
      Still big numbers of fish in various areas of the deep mud, 28-24'.  
      Reefs are still holding some fish as well.  Fish could be on top, on the sides or relating to the deep mud just off of the edges over the mud.   
      Drifting or trolling spinners with crawlers and trolling crankbaits are the goto techniques for putting fish in the boat.
      Hammered gold with glow white or glow red, yellow, orange and red/white are colors doing well.  
      The top team in the AIM MN Championship on Friday and Saturday had 88.62 lbs for 10 walleyes to take first place.  Some big fish were caught despite windy conditions.   
      On the Rainy River...   The river producing a mixed bag of walleyes, saugers, pike, bass, and sturgeon.  Spinners / crawlers or trolling crankbaits are a good way to locate walleyes.  Some walleyes holding in deep holes can be jigged once you find them.  
      Bass and pike holding on structure, docks and weed edges.  Hitting various "goto" spots up and down the river is a fun and normally productive day.    
      The sturgeon "keep" season continues through Sep. 30.  Catch and release Oct 1 - April 23, 2022.
      Up at the NW Angle...  
      Great fishing continues on both sides of the border.  In U.S. waters, deep mud of Little Traverse Bay continues producing walleyes in 28 - 33 feet.  Spinners and crankbaits are effective in covering water and catching these fish as there are various pods scattered in the deep mud.
      Various structure, such as underwater points and sunken islands, are also holding some walleyes, as they normally do.  Not all walleyes in the system are keyed into the same forage.  
      Pike and muskie anglers finding fish on weedy points using jerkbaits and topwater. 
      Travel via vehicle through Canada to the Angle now open.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.  
      To travel up to the Angle and avoid the border crossing, vaccination cards and COVID test results, charter boat transport and float planes are available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air.

      Took a trip out fishing to a couple of lakes guided by my friend Rob from Ely Fishing Guide Company with my son and son in-law. We caught some eater walleyes in the first lake we went to. Took a break for lunch, then hit up a small lake for rainbow trout.

      The mouth of the creek is quite a ways downstream from the landing, and you’ll have to cross several peoples’ docks. Entire stream is surrounded by private property. Sure, you can technically legally access the stream, but why would you want to bother with the headache of dealing with landowners that DON’T want you there? Stream is small enough to step across in most places, it’s very weedy, and lot’s of overhanging brush. Not to mention, below average at best numbers of small trout!   You want easy access? Buy a Wisconsin license! Right across the river in Pierce County alone, there’s hundreds of miles of public easements on trout streams that are ten times better than anything Minnesota has to offer!

      Pike suckers are about 3½ inches long.  Walleyes really like them in the fall and early winter.  Caught my fish in 13-15 FOW drifting slowly.  Good solid bites.

      Got up Thursday evening to rain and pretty heavy wind Friday morning had us holding off on putting the boat in the water. Fished briefly Friday evening at sunset and picked up an 18" and a couple smalls. Fishing was decent Saturday morning but no real size, everything was 12-15". I had one that looked to be 17"ish flop off as I was trying to flip it into the boat. All the fish we caught were in 17-22'. We were fishing around about a 6' top but never caught anything on top. They appeared to be relating to the structure but not actually on it. Tried again Saturday evening for a couple hours and continued to pick up small walleye just like the morning. Sunday was windy again but we decided to slug it out for awhile and caught one decent perch and one small walleye. We fished similar depths and spots as Saturday but they weren't there. Marked them out in 35'+ but didn't feel like fighting the wind out in the big water so we called it quits around noon and never went back out(the wind never really did lay down or we may have tried again). Jig/minnow way outfished bottom bouncers/crawlers. Wish bottom bouncers would have worked better because it was tough to keep a jig down as fast as we were drifting and we never found a school to spot lock on.

      I am heading up there tomorrow.  Where do you guys get minnows up in the area?  Tower or Cook or down in Virginia?  I have never heard of pike suckers?  How large are they?  Are you guys fishing the East or West side of the lake?  Let me know.  I am thinking of fishing the East side tomorrow and then headed to the west side from Thursday thru Sunday.  Any help would be appreciated?  I am a newby to the area.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!
