Isle bay is over rated. Try the others and look for cabbage or green weeds. 8-14 feet is my normal depths. It’s just finding them that takes time.

I may be giving it a try next Sat. Seems like the best time is when it melts down a bit right before honey combing.  Not sure if they move in to eat all the craap felling through the ice but seems like they move in the bays more then. If at all some years?

Dang more snow. That may put me off for at least another weekend.  I like it when it's down to almost bare ice and melting.

Guess I'll smoke a Turkey this Sat. :)

Picture from Isle Bay today. :(

The issue now is lake travel. Getting to much wet snow for vehicles without anyone plowing, kind of heavy and wet for hand pulling a sled and to warm and heavy to take the sled back out of storage! :(

Boy, those businesses up there have got to be hurting.  Nobody there.  No roads plowed.  Very sad.

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down  
    • pikeandchester
      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
