On the south end... Walleye season is closed until the MN Fishing Opener, May 11th.  Pike and sturgeon are open and reports are excellent.  Pike season is open all year long.  Back bays on the lake and river are open and full of pike.  A combo of big dead baits or slow rolling a spinnerbait, spoon or crankbait are the go to methods.  Numerous trophy class pike being caught.  All pike 30-40" must be returned with a 3 fish limit and one over 40".

On the Rainy River...  Sturgeon fishing has been excellent.  Lake Sturgeon are bottom feeders and have been active.  The go to presentation a 3-6 ounce no roll sinker, sturgeon rig and a few nightcrawlers or combo crawlers and frozen emerald shiners.  The keep season for sturgeon continues through May 7th, May 8 - 15, catch and release only.  May 16 - June 30, sturgeon season closed.   

Up at the NW Angle...  Open water areas increasing rapidly.  Open water in the Angle Inlet and between islands.  Basin ice deteriorating quickly.  Resorts getting ready for May 11th opener.

      For Vermilion, the Lowrance lake insight data is identical to Lakemaster, 3 foot contours.

      Maybe you should check the various sites that sell mapping stuff?   What is the Lowrance offering?   Is there a different Navionics choice?

      Hi everyone, I will be heading to Echo Lake, in the superior national Forest, the middle of June.  Never been there, but the small amount I found on this site says it's a good fishing lake.  Does anyone have past experience on this lake?  I'm targeting walleye mostly, but Pike and crappie are always on my menu.  Are there any lure colors that have worked well for you?  I'm mostly a live bait fisherman.  Any presentations that worked well?  Any advice will be greatly appreciated with this lake, and I will report back how it went/what worked.  Thank you everyone.

      I brought a notarized letter from their mother and they required it back when I did it. The other documents prove who he is but not whether the father is spiriting him away.
