      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.

      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?

      Looking for some fun easy Shore fishing spots. New to fishing as an adult, only fished when I was 10-13 in scouts. From California having moved to Moorhead Oct 18, just got fishing license for my wife and I. 
      Bought some poles and gear and just wondering if anyone can point me in the directions of some great spots to fish off shore, as we do not have a boat. 
      Thank you.

      Day 1 up on Flag Island Resort brought us many Walleye, Sauger and Perch on the Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods. Day 2 however we went into the Canadian water to fish an area that has Walleye, Perch, Sauger and some REALLY BIG Crappies! This plan and location did not disappoint - I won't be forgetting this day on the ice!

      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!

      @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...

      Ok can you stop being such a Diick-Rick!  😁   MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING Between The Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians, The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, And The United States Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs   Reservation Waters: The Band will determine allocation between recreational, subsistence, and commercial harvests. Differing harvest methods may be managed with a combination of strategies 1 and 2 above. Commercial harvest will be regulated to meet the predetermined commercial quota. At this time there is a large amount of uncertainty on how the Band plans to fish and how future harvest allocations may be split among the various types of fishing. If during the season it appears that the quota in one category may exceed the pre-determined allocation, it may be possible to reallocate from the remaining categories to prevent exceeding the reservation's total allowable catch. The commercial quota will be calculated by multiplying the upper limit of the target harvest zone by total reservation acres then applying the percentage of the harvest allocation that the Band has declared for commercial fishing. Size and age structure of the commercial catch will be managed by gear regulation to protect and maintain spawning stock. Once the quota has been reached, commercial fishing will be suspended until the following year. Estimates of subsistence and angling harvest will be less precise than estimates of the commercial harvest

      So did you miss this part above? "We both know the days of the canoe and torch light are long gone and eating fish for subsistence (food) has been replaced from Lbs to amount of cash! Is the Fishery a big money maker that the Band can live off of probably not, do they need to live off Walleye for food anymore probably not.  Is the Seven Clans Casino helping to fill the Fisheries void of days gone by?"   Even if it is not in the treaty language your just going off semantics, subsistence gathering is in just about all Treaties to ensure that they had a way and right to exist. Some of the Treaty language was stated the way it was to help the bands from fighting each other over Hunting and Fishing on each others lands. The Fishery is not the only way the band makes a living Rick. In the past there was lot of trading of Wild Rice, goods made out of Deer hides, fish and meat.  Today they have way more options then ever before with improved Fishery and of course the Casino.  How the Band elders divides all the income within the band I have no idea as it does not effect me nor you.

      I just asked to get things riled up. It's been kind of slow on here lately!

      You're the one who brought it into the conversation. Don't you think it's on you to tell us?   Under $4000 for a family of 4 is at best, subsistence or below. Even if it was by chance part of the treaty language.
    • leech~~
      Well, I'm waiting to hand you money. Get at it!  😆
    • leech~~
      So, your pretty sure that not one of them say anything about Subsistence Hunting or fishing? 🙄  
    • smurfy
