Hi Smitty:

Caught my fair share of eyes making only one trip to Lake of the Woods along with fishing a few of our local (Vermilion, Swan, etc.) lakes. The last couple weeks have been dedicated to crappies, which are biting pretty good right now.

This weekend we have plans for a trip to Upper Red Lake. Haven't been there yet this winter. Just want to check it out. Heard the crappie fishing is picking up there. Anyone reading that wants to join in, feel free to give me a jingle.

Next weekend we will be trout fishing in Canada, even though it is Minnesota's trout opener. Hard to fish around here when it can't even come close to comparing to Ontario. Not all that far.

Regards.......GC

GR Fishin' Man,

The tentative plan was to leave Nashwauk around 8 a.m. on Saturday. Get there and be fishing around 11:00 or so and fish until dark. Might be a tough day but you won't know if you don't go. I hope this weather stabilizes somewhat. Plans will be finalized tomorrow sometime before noon I hope. I can be e-mailed at [email protected]

Greg....A couple of weeks ago I got to witness 80 Ten year old brude stock Lakers being put into a mine pit real close to you. All the fish were between 10 and 15 pounds! You will definitely hear about some of these fish probably after this weekend.
This has never been done in this specific pit and I sure wish I was around to fish it, just came back to AK. These fish have never seen a lure and they will be very hungry.

Your right about the crappie fishing! It has been fantastic, this cold weather has slowed them down locally, but I had perfect weather and great fishing even for Eyes.

Landed a 39 inch Pike on Section Two by Blue on Saturday! Let it go and kept some of the smaller ones for pickling. My biggest on a tip-up in many years.

Good Fishing!

Crappie Chaser,

You're killing me! Is it the water that I'm thinking of? How about an e-mail with the particulars?

I'll be on Crow Lake this weekend. Spent summer weekends there for many years but never fished it through the ice. Really looking forward to it.

Regarding the crappie fishing here. We've got fish over 14 inches on the last three outings. All on different waters. I like that. One of the lakes was Red last Saturday. My fish averaged 13" (1 - 12", 10 - 13", and 1 - 14"). Love them slabs.

Thanks for the holiday wishes, that was very nice of you. I should have tried to get a hold of you while I was up nort over the holidays. Oh well, next time your in town and I'm close we will have to hook up.

Heading up to my favorite trout lake with Graybuck on opener. Shhhhhh, not even a hint from you on these forums. wink.gif You'll know where I'll be. Going to also try some other places while I'm up nort for the three day weekend. If you got any ideas to throw my way, shoot me a note via e-mail.

My new e-mail is [email protected]

CrappieChaser, I was there putting those fish in the hole with Arola. Beautiful fish weren't they? I'll be there on Saturday, I start shakin thinking of those pigs, wow! Give me an email at [email protected], would like to know which guy you were and then I'll tell you how we did after opener. I usually fish out there with Arola but I don't think he's gonna make it out there this year.

good fishin

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?  
    • delcecchi
      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.
    • Gone Out Fishin
      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.
