      Hey guys! First post so excuse me if I'm posting in the wrong spot. 
       
      I just moved to Elk River, MN and am feening for some fish. I have no idea where to go first but do any of you know any decent spots to get some Crappie or Walleye within a 45 min drive from Elk River? Any spots are greatly appreciated. 
       
      Thanks!!!!

      Anyone got any place that they would like to share with me to catch walleyes from shore. That is good anytime of the season.
      Preferably public land. I've got bad hips and cant be lifting my canoe any longer, so Im stuck to fishing on the shore. If you have
      any ideas of places let me know. Id be grateful for the advice.
       
      Minnesota or North Dakota advise welcome.
       
      Oh, Ill be fishing at night mostly. Ill be using live bait, Chubs and leeches.
       
      Thanks!

      Anyone know of lakes with decent shore fishing near Mankato? I've gone to North Shore on Madison Lake but can't find any shore on other lakes near by. Any suggestions?

      A group of us recently made it up to Flag Island Resort for 3 days of multispecies ice fishing on Lake of the Woods. The accommodations and folks who worked at the Resort were top notch! Bending over backwards to put you on fish and make your trip one to remember.
       
      The Fishing - Day 1 it was decided to stay, somewhat, close to the Resort in the MN side of LOTW to target Walleye, Sauger and Perch due to 24+ hours of snow. We got into pretty good numbers of fish and some quality fished showed up as well! Below is a video of that action from Day 1.

      A group of high school buddies and some of their family make an Annual trip up to Baudette to fish Walleyes on Lake of the Woods. I look forward to this trip each year! Since this is an Annual Trip we all put some money and bragging rights on the line for the Angler who can catch the biggest fish of the weekend, take home the Trophy, $500 Cash and call themselves "Mr. Walleye" for the next 365 days. The Largest Perch and Heaviest Eelpout/Burbot also take home prizes. I didn't have the camera's rolling on Day 1 (which was lights out) but on Day 2 of the trip we were filming. It was fun day and I even caught my new Personal Best Perch!

      On Saturday I drove into Wisconsin to meet up with my buddy Matt and his Dad to target some Crappies. The weather was perfect and allowed us to stay mobile & hole hop around all day to catch fish. We found a good average size (10-12") and some larger fish mixed in. I started the day fishing a 4mm tungsten jig with big plastics but the fish seemed to shy away so I downsized to the smaller profile (3.8mm) tungsten fly and almost every fish I marked turned into a biter. I always have a Wisconsin fishing license so I'm hoping to check out a few new lakes this winter across the border.

      @bassfshin24 and I snuck up to Mille Lacs for 2 days of fishing recently. We were targeting Walleye near shallow structure in the low light hours and bumping out a bit deeper during mid-day. The first day was slow for us but we found more action on Day 2 including my 2nd biggest Walleye through the ice. I also caught my first tagged Walleye! Pay attention for my slip and fall...

      Just got Home from there my self. Great show some pretty good deals going on. Was really intrigued by Bass Khang Rods purchased one of his custom walleye rods. Had a great time reconnecting with some old buds in the ice fishing industry.

      Getting to the end of the line here in a hurry.  What a bummer of a close out from central going north.  I know a few people who crushed em here and there but most have experienced a mediocre season overall.   Anyone still out, and on birds?  There should still be some good fields going on.   I just popped the latest wood duck I think I’ve ever seen.  A young bird too so I can’t give it credit for being a Wiley old timer resisting the flight through the gauntlet.

      Great expo, lots of great new product, not as crowded as weekends, quick and easy to talk with vendors and some decent prices.

      Oddly enough.... I know that spot.  Have done really well in the fall, fishing the saddle between the two pieces of structure😉

      Cool. If you wind up going with either, or both, be sure to report back on how the accommodations were (and the fishing but that's usually not in their control).

      Bassbouncer....Not to change the subject, neighbor and I checked out your ice house you're selling. Looks nice. Ron L is my neighbor, talk him into buying it🙂. Btw, do you know how much it weighs? What do you pull it with out on the lake?

      I've got a trip scheduled to Sunset Lodge on the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods in January.  We signed up to fish MN one day for walleyes and on the Ontario side one day for crappies.  This is a trip we've done for the past two years.  The walleye fishing has been so-so but the crappie fishing has been very good in the past.  I just noticed that Sunset's website no longer mentions the MN/Ontario combo package that was there when I made the reservation in October, so I called Sunset to see what was going on.  Samantha, the manager, is not there now since the resort is shut down between seasons, and the person I talked with was vague.  The explanation varied between "crappie fishing has not been that good in the past" to "we're not sure what Ontario is doing."  She assured me that Sam would get back to me in the next couple weeks and I shouldn't worry about it, but since I organized the trip on the premise of the walleye/crappie combo I'd like to know what is going on.  Is anyone aware of any changes for this ice fishing season regarding non-residents fishing in Ontario?  Is this a remote border crossing issue?  Or is this just a resort decision?

      Thank you for all the recommendations.  I'm now looking into Red Lake Remote and Kabetogama Outdoors.
