Isaac was able to catch his PB yesterday.  20 3/4" 5lb 2oz.

I am not a bass guy, but thought I would stop by to share this picture of my personal best largemouth.   She hit a shiner on a tip-up yesterday on a Mississippi River backwater north of Winona. (No cl

I tried something I haven't done in years yesterday.  I went fishing at night.  I started at 8pm and marked some spots to try while dodging waves from recreational riff raff in every direction.  By 9p

so I think I just discovered @Rick G secret to landing all these nice fish. The key is to have your lure color match your sunglasses? lol Nice fish as always

I appreciate it @Wanderer.... I had a bass boat for years and about four years ago I had big motor issues. While it was getting worked on I bought a cheap fishing kayak so I could get on the water.  The rest is history, I ended up selling the boat and kayak fish now. The being so close to the water, the getting to places others can’t and just the peacefulness that kayak fishing provides changed me. I upgraded and love every minute of it....

If I didn't have a boat, I'd for sure have a souped up fishing kayak.  I really have no reason to have both and as long as I have a boat, I probably won't have a kayak in addition.  I have a 12 foot jon boat that I use for duck hunting in the fall and my Father and I use it on a small river in the summer where a bigger boat can't get.

Well sometimes, sometimes he just steals it!

 

Heck I have been trying to get him trained in everything.  He loads and unloads the boat now, controls the boat some. (Hard to give that control up) and he has started to back the trailer up at the ramp.

Haha!  Cool deal.  I suppose you’ll get used to being outfished by just a little at least.  Passing the torch sort of thing.

 

A young determined and capable kid won’t leave too many bass behind for the back of the boat.  I bet it’s fun teaching and watching him come into his own.

It has been fun to see him get large fish this year.  Surprisingly, his biggest fish have come fishing behind me!  

When he is in front I have resorted to old fashioned tactics to keep numbers close.

Hopefully he becomes a more versatile fisherman than his old man.

It was a beauty...20” long and would guess 4 1/2+lbs. It was released right after the picture. My wife caught that one In late May in 10 feet of water.

      Well, just wrapped up my last day in Grand Marais. All the smaller, shallow lakes are locked up with ice, or will be after tonight. Lots of snow up the trail, but getting around on back roads wasn’t a problem. I stopped and fished most of the trout lakes around the gunflint and arrowhead trails...the ones that weren’t frozen over anyway. My dad didn’t see a single grouse...I saw one at the start of the arrowhead. I didn’t hear a single gunshot while I was out fishing. Saw 1 moose, 1 bear, a few deer, foxes were everywhere! And even saw a fisher run across the road. Saw just about every animal print you can think of in the snow. Still a few diving ducks around, snow buntings and crossbills everywhere. And finally seen a gray jay! Despite the cold and snow, it really wasn’t that bad out. Was a different perspective fishing all the lakes in waders, as opposed to being in a boat.

      A huge shout out to Borch who gave some really good pointers on running the raps in our lake.   This fall my dad spent more days fishing from my boat and actually was begging me to go. Dont know if we will be able to do it again but made some really good memories.

      And i did this. I wished i could learn not to have this happen. Having to go to the ER was odd with the whole covid thing.

      The last couple of months were great out on the lake. Smallies and northerns and mix in some large mouths and eyes. Fishing in 2-5fr of water.

      So as i got a Cabelas CC, I will be able to get a new locator. Currently have 2 FL-8s but want an upgrade. I basically spend the winter for Cats. Have over $500 in awards.

      On the south end...  Dress warm and catch walleyes!  Some even bring their Mr. Heater in the boat.  High temps this week in the low 40's.  The water temps are in the 30's and the walleyes are staged in many early ice areas.  Good reports on the lake with a mix of small fish, eaters and some big fish.  Consider areas on the lake such as the Lighthouse Gap, Morris Point Gap, Zippel Bay and Long Point.  Good reports in all of those areas.  Walleyes in 7 - 26' of water.  Most anglers anchored up and jigging with an emerald shiner.  Pink, gold, glow and green jigs working well.  Pike are active in bays and along shorelines.  Trolling crankbaits for some anglers is still effective, but jigging by far the chosen technique this time of year. On the Rainy River...   Anglers seeing good numbers of walleyes on electronics as well as a lot of bait.  With so many shiners in the river, catching walleyes has been tougher than normal.  The river is still low, current slow.  Best depths anywhere from 7-24'.  Most anglers are jigging with live or frozen shiners.  Pink, glow and gold combo effective.  Trolling crankbaits over flats where fish are spread still pulling some fish.  Walleyes in Four Mile Bay 10-15'.  Sturgeon anglers focusing on deeper holes with current.  A sturgeon rig with crawlers and shiners. Up at the NW Angle...   Nice walleyes being caught up at the Angle for anglers braving some colder than normal temps.  Jig and a minnow on points and areas with current all good places to start in 13'-26'.  Gold, pink, and glow colors great choices.  Some big pike being caught by walleye anglers as well as those trolling shorelines.  Pike and muskies in bays and off of rock points.

      Same latitude as your turf but at the western end of the state yesterday.  Water temps are around 40 on the big water but the small ponds are freezing or capped already.  Birds are on the move big time including light and dark geese and swans.   Some small ponds that were partially open had a few birds on them that appeared to mostly be hooded mergs.   We had a spoony shoot with a few others mixed in. GWT and BWT (loner), gadwall, and buffleheads.  We saw blue bills and golden eyes but no shots fired on them.  3 man limit.

      Anyone been on the Chain or Big Birch within the past 3-4 days?  Just curious what the water temps are hovering around.
