Nice fish!  I was out near mille lacs area and the frog bite was killing it. Had a handful in the 17-20” range.

Went fishing with @eyeguy 54 @IceHawk And @Bass Thumb. The big crappies are on the munch and I was hungry. Fishing 7-10 feet as these big fish are moving shallower. Thank you to these guys for bringing a monstermoose along. The chicken tender sandwich was awesome and the beer was cold. Anyone else get out fishing?

Went over and fished with the St. Cloud guys again. Well the fish showed us up and we did not catch to many. We even had the secret weapon Rick G with this time. I caught a few just one keeper sized fish which I donated to the bucket of one of the guys. Not sure how many ended up in the bucket as I had to head home to get my chores done.

Snow drifts suck!! It’s not that far of a walk from my dads house to the field, but it took me awhile, because the drifts were deep. Finn came with me to get some exercise and was having a blast finding pheasants he jumped 6. 4 were hens which is great to see back there and he jumped one ruffed grouse from under a pine tree by my blind. Not as much turkey sign as I was expecting just a few tracks. I think they could walk on the crusted snow and not leave any tracks. It’s now nap time for Finn and I.

Went ice fishing this evening from 430-630 and they were biting like crazy. 11-17 feet of water with most of the fish in 11-13 feet. Best bait was a xl jig in orange and a white mayfly. Still 28 inches of ice and only 2 inches of snow on it.

Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

Glad you are ok. I will be out checking some lakes this week as most still had some ice on them, but if it hits 80 today and the rain it should open some up.

Way to go @Barbelboy !! 

Ice is off most the lakes now. The crappies and gills are hitting shallow bays to feed. Get out there and have some fun. Please let us know how you did. You don’t need to say the lake but some details would be great to help others get some fish. Pictures are awesome too

I went out on Saturday morning but I did not do any panfishing.  I mostly went out to get my boat in the water before opener and to make sure everything was running properly.  I'm not the person that's gonna wait until the opener to start up my outboard, livewell, electronics, etc.  Don't be THAT guy

The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in.

I went out on Saturday for about 5 hours and my friend and I caught a lot of crappies but they were mostly all dinks (8-10 inchers).  We only caught 4 of them over 10 inches.  Plus a few small bass and one pike.  We released all of them.  Water temp was right around 60, a little warmer up shallow in a bay.

Well I did not get a turkey this year but I sure had a blast hunting for them. Lots of close calls but just never got a shot. 

Fishing the rum river before the rain was hot and the local lakes are doing well. Check out the fishing clubs section as many very skilled anglers post extremely detailed reports.

      Been awhile since I posted. Hope everyone had a great season ice fishing. I have been chasing pike mainly with the Aqua Vu this year and trying different baits. Pulled out the 5 of Diamonds to end the season. Who remembers this one. Anyone use it ice fishing. Thought I Share.

      A little long winded but I'm excited to share.
      Got out on Tonka 4 times this week. Yes, I'm retired. 😀 Bought the Milwaukee 2803-33 and put it on a 6" lazer hand auger that I've had for 20 years but have never used it since I have a gasser too. Very impressed by that set up. Also gave the LiveScope a good work out.
      Monday afternoon found the sunfish and crappie suspended over a 40-foot hole. Saw fish with the LiveScope with the first set of holes and drilled a few more to get on top of them. Kept 3 of each for fish sandwiches.
      Tuesday afternoon in the same hole but near the ridge that connects shore to an offshore reef. Mostly sunfish there but a few crappie too. All released.
      Yesterday started an hour before sunrise and fished a small 12 foot-hole that I started fishing around 1970. Caught sunfish, crappies, largemouth and lost an ~8# carp at the bottom of the hole. Had it played out and laying sideways at the bottom of my 6" hole. Trying to get it started up the hole and my 4# test line broke with a new 4 mm tungsten glow wonder bread jig in its lip. Looked at the flasher and they was another fish. Grabbed the other rod with a 1/16 oz jointed pinhead minnow on it and fired it down the hole to be immediately consumed by a 12" crappie. All fish released.
      This morning fished the small hole again at the same time. Sunfish and crappies. Largest crappie was 11 7/8. No sunfish over 7". Just drilled 3 holes in the spot with the most fish from yesterday. Two for fishing, one for the LiveScope and set the house up. It's fun seeing fish creeping in from 8 feet away and you can definitely tell the different sizes of fish on the LiveScope.
      Reminisced on some of the times I've fished this hole over the years with friends and family.

      Son and I decided one last trip before ice melt on Rush. Lots of slush at access, probably unpassable by next weekend with 40 to 50 deg. temps next week. 25" ice with 4" packed snow on fishing area. No hot spot just area with 30 so wheel/skid shacks. Drilled a few around orange marker found nothing, flasher lit up at blue marker suspended 15 to 28 ft. 36 FOW. Bite non existing put everything down, colors, plastic, variety. Got 3 at 9 to 11 inch. Talked to several anglers, same results. Love the floor I built for the flip no water/slush everything dry.

      If you intend to fish past Sunday, you'll need a new 2021 angling license.
       
      Additionally, the deadline to remove permanent/overnight fish houses is Monday in the southern half of the state.  If found unattended over night beyond the deadline, enforcement officials can confiscate the house itself.

      Hey all...I am a noob ice fisherman and want to be as safe as possible...
       
      The lakes around my area have about 2 feet of ice and the warm weather the past few days has me nervous driving my Ford Ranger on the ice...

      I am assuming that I should not be concerned yet BUT I just wanted some reassurance before I go this evening.
       
      *There is no major flow in the lake FYI*
       
      Thanks for any help and sorry if this is asked too much!

      Coho Salmon are unlike any fish I've ever targeted. There's not a ton of opportunities to catch these fish through the ice, so to be able to do that makes it that much cooler. Went went out on Lake Superior near Duluth, MN. This was on Sunday. Such a cool experience!

      On the south end...  A warm up triggered some nice walleyes and saugers up on Lake of the Woods this week.  A mix of walleyes and saugers with some pike, perch, eelpout and tullibees being caught in 29-33 feet.  Using a bait with rattles or vibration to attract fish is helpful.  On the deadstick, try a glow hook with a live minnow or even a glow bead above the hook.  Set bait 6 inches to a foot off of the bottom.  Try gold, glow colors, chartreuse and pink good color choices this week.  Electronics are helpful to show suspended fish as well as how fish are reacting to your presentation.  
      On the Rainy River...   Morning / evening bite producing some walleyes on the river.  The snowmobile trail on the river from Baudette to Wheeler's Point to the NW Angle staked and groomed.  Use caution and work through a resort, outfitter or gain info from a bait shop as there is current and areas not fit for travel on the river.
      Up at the NW Angle...  With the border closure, there are four ways to travel to the NW Angle without crossing the border.  1.  NW Angle Guest Ice Road from south shore up to the Angle.  2.  Snowmobile trails across the lake.  3.  Lake of the Woods Passenger Service (bombardier).  4.  Lake Country Air flying service.
      A lot of nice walleyes caught up at the Angle this week with a mix of other species.  Walleyes in 24 - 30' of water.  Some resorts are fishing on or adjacent to structure, others fishing deep mud.  Some resorts are fishing the deep mud.  Some anglers catching walleyes with small jigs tipped with a plastic that mimics bugs and worms in mud.  Plain hook or a glow jig with a live minnow on deadstick.  Communicate with your favorite NW Angle resort for specifics.  Ice fishing on LOW through March.

      Hey guys we are all set for our trip to Sand Point May 21, 2021. Plan to fish pike and crappies. I have been going to this lake since 1982 and now have a new generation crew. They have been going 12 years with me. We normally stay in Browns and fish that area and Grassy. We are in King Pin site this year and plan to fish towards Swanson Bay and up and around Wolf Island. Any pointers. Thanks

      New rules for purchasing a combination license in MN. 
      DNR adjusts how married anglers and hunters buy combination licenses
      Both members of married couples who want to purchase a combination angling or hunting license in person will need to be present at the sales location starting Feb. 18, when the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will begin requiring both spouses to provide and verify their own complete customer records on file to purchase a combination license.
      “These changes will bring the DNR into compliance with state and federal laws that require collecting this information for angling or hunting license sales,” said Steve Michaels, licensing program director. “The information helps prevent licenses being sold to people with violations or unpaid fines.”
      Customers will continue to pay the same price for combination licenses, which are discounted compared with purchasing two individual licenses.
      When purchasing a combination license in person, both spouses must be present, and, if age 21 or older, also must provide their current Minnesota driver’s licenses or identification cards. If both spouses are not present, the person present may purchase their part of the license and their spouse may obtain their license at a later date at no additional charge.
      If a spouse does not have a record on file with the DNR, that spouse can create one with their full name, birth date, social security number. If they are a Minnesota resident age 21 or older, they also will need a current Minnesota driver’s license or current Minnesota identification card. They can create their record anywhere DNR licenses are sold, or call the DNR license center at 877-348-0498 or 651-297-1230 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. New resident customer records for people age 21 and over cannot be created online.
      “Thank you to all our license purchasers for patience adjusting to these changes and for buying a license,” Michaels said. “Your license dollars pay for a great deal of DNR conservation work and leverage more federal funding that supports hunting and fishing opportunities and habitat work.”
      The DNR offers the following married combination licenses:
      Angling, valid for fishing.
      Conservation angling, valid for half the possession limit, per spouse.
      Sports, valid for fishing for both spouses and small game hunting for one spouse.
      Super Sports, valid for fishing for both spouses, small game for one spouse, includes two state trout stamps, and waterfowl and pheasant stamps for one spouse. It also offers the choice of a firearm, archery or muzzleloader deer license for one spouse.
      Family nonresident angling, valid for one or both parents and dependent children under age 16.
      Also check out the DNR website - https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/licenses/combo.html
