Member only ...looking for some reports near Wright county area or even west and north of there. Been fishing this small lake out near South Haven and been crushing 9.5 inch gills and 12 inch crappies the last 2 months. Went back last week after take a 2 week break and everything was suspended and tiny. Before everything was just off weeds deep and coming from botto....not sure what happened but fish were loaded like a xmas on the flx28, maybe oxygen levels? First pic of the crappies took me and friend 1 hour and 20 holes... so much fun!!!!
💥💥💥Found a portable left on the ice 2/15/20 at about 4 30pm. Had been there over a day as it had snow drifted around it. If you can describe it, and where on the lake I would love nothing more to get it back to the owner. Thanks!!!!💥💥💥

Found this and would like to see your opinions....
The DNR is in the process of finalizing plans for the Quality Bluegill Initiative, revealed last summer in the hope of going public early this spring.
Implementation would happen in 2021. The goal was to greatly increase the number of lakes in the state with reduced limits for bluegills in hopes of growing bigger sunfish.
Big sunfish, as anybody who's dunked a worm knows, is among the rarest of fish in Minnesota. A true trophy, 10 inches or longer, might be tougher to catch than an eight-pound walleye. Decades of liberal bag limits, anglers keeping too many big fish and the belief that you could never "overfish" sunnies took their toll.
The DNR spent the past several months identifying between 200 and 250 lakes on which it can cut the current statewide 20-fish limit to 10 or five sunfish. Lakes on the list needed to meet certain criteria, including public support and the biological capability to grow big bluegills.
Jim Wolters, DNR's area fisheries manager in Fergus Falls, said there are 13 lakes in Otter Tail County and 5 in Becker County under consideration for reduced sunfish limits.
What do you think?
Hoping to do a trip up to leech 21st of March. anyone have any suggestions on places to get onto the lake or areas to target? Have few rigs planned so should be able to get around. Any information greatly appreciated

This is another traditional fishing video and its very popular all over the world. Hope you enjoy.
Watch and enjoy.
Any one know if there is a plowed road out of Burntside and if there is where it goes out of
On the south end... A lot of nice walleyes and saugers caught this week up at Lake of the Woods. Many resorts traveling 16 - 22 miles out on the ice and most reports are very good. Lots of big walleyes this week. Ice conditions on LOW remain excellent. Jig one line and don't be afraid to use noise such as rattles or vibration to draw fish in. Have a deadstick with a live minnow in the second hole for neutral fish. Best colors vary but gold, glow, green, orange and pink good colors. Electronics tell you where fish are and how they are reacting to your bait and presentation. Pike anglers already pulling some trophy fish. Should only get better as month progresses.
On the Rainy River... The river is frozen over with snowmobile traffic on marked trail. Some reports of good fish in the river. Extra caution is always needed on the river, especially with higher current this year. Thin ice around the International Bridge in Baudette. Work through resort or know ice conditions if ice fishing the river as ice thickness varies.
Up at the NW Angle... Some great reports from the Angle this week. Resorts in 26 - 32' of water. The snowmobile trails from south shore to Angle in great shape. Jigging spoons and Rippin Raps in one hole. In second hole, plain red hook with live minnow working well. Fish houses on the ice through March 31st, walleyes and saugers open through April 14.
Went to a local Meeker county lake tonight around 12:30 stayed till 7 Fish started around 5 pm got lots of sunfish and crappies. Used a spoon to lure them in but would not take it started with a larger Maynards jig then game on also I tried a smaller jig but no luck sometimes upsizing is the ticket in 13 FOW. Had a dead stick out with a crappie minnow only got one larger perch. Paid to jump around lakes and not just stay on one lake. About 6:30 the noise from vehicles coming and going slowed thing up very fast had a good night and a boost to my ego🤪 HA HA I thought I lost the touch sometimes just getting out and changing your attitude is the one best fishing weapon you can have.

By whateverisbiting · PostedI would love to see more restrictions on all species but they have to include a protected slot. There are so many success stories it should be obvious by now. It seems to work better when a mid-range length is protected or all fish over a certain length go back. I have heard concerns that restriction will reduce interest including from out of state (economic impact), but with better fishing I doubt that is the case. I think what helps with this is allowing 1 trophy over a certain size in your limit. As for the stunted theory...as a kid I fished a lake where I could limit out on 8" crappies any time but never caught one over 9". We were told to keep as many as possible so we could thin them out. A 9" minimum was put on the lake. And like magic when I went back and fished as an adult almost all the crappies were just under 9", but I caught a limit between 9-12 inches. I remain somewhat skeptical of the stunted fish theory...not that it does not exist, but it is an overused excuse. Just reducing the limit does not help...you need to add the slot with it. Or just use the slot, which is somewhat self-limiting in what you can keep. For some, reducing the number you can keep is a psychological boost...they can say we limited out! With the new northern regulations, I have already seen the impact in increasing size...all fish from 22-26 go back and now I am seeing those small northerns get some bulk (it is not because they are stunted and people are keeping all the northerns under 22" to thin them). I don't think that "educating" people is effective; if you care, you already know. It needs to be legislated.
By banton441241 · PostedA canoe requires a “J” stroke (to compensate for paddling on one side) whereas a kayak has a balanced left and right stroke that better aids in tracking and balance. Canoe paddles are heavy. Kayak paddles are ergonomic and light! Source: https://canoesurfer.net/buying-canoe-vs-kayak AND What is the difference between canoeing and kayaking?
By Wanderer · PostedYou might not find much opposition on forums cuz the people that use them are learners. This is our life and we’ve paid attention to what goes on out on the water/ice. We’ve had our times when we’ve realized what our own actions have meant and make efforts to be better sportsmen and conservationists. If all of us here kept every legal fish we catch up to our limit, we’d be WAY over on possession - who can eat that much fish? We don’t view a freezer full of fillets as food security, we view a lake full of swimming fillets as food security and fun security. Making a smaller withdrawal from the lake here and there is better than living on a couple jackpots per year when one really lands on em. That statement might sound arrogant but I believe it to be true.
By HoleHoppingGills · PostedMy thought and by the way I'm a huge gill and crappies guy. Id like to see all MN lakes with a regulation that 9 or 9. 5 inch go back ASAP on crappie!!. Been seeing a lot of.lakes destroyed by fishermen taking limits of small fish. Use to fish a small.lake near Tonka few times a year and always did well on quality panfish... I went there few years later like I always did in the spring off a dock to catch spawning crappies. Lake has no access, anyways some guys were fishing and had there kids to obviously use them for fish limits, Watched this guy pull in a 5 inch crappie, turns around lifts up a metal basket out of the water. This basket maxed out and completely full.of 5 to 7 inch crappies. About 6 in the party kept EVERYTHING. Tried it few times that winter which I normally did back then.... no fish population at all. Just my thoughts sorry so long lol
