A couple of friends and I are coming up on the 29th to fish Northstar and maybe Deer. Does anyone have a fishing report on these lakes or lakes close by? Any info would greatly help.

alfishdaily, I just got back from five days on nothstar. We caught most of our fish at night because of the heat. We fished the point straight out from cedar point resort with small pike minnows on spinner rigs from sunset to around 10pm and the walleyes were hitting good. I am not much of a muskie fisherman but we got some good action at the cattail island in the bay just off 38. Also did well in deeper weeds around the channel to other large section of lake.

I was using an orange hook with orange blade, my brother has a chartruese hook with chart bead. We got eyes up to 23". We did get some in the moring but keeping the rock bass off in the morning was a hassle, also got some very nice large and smallmouth with this technique. During daylight hours we were fishing 12-17ft the best action was just at night fall in 4-7 ft till about 10pm on the weed flats with deep water adjacent. Good luck Adam

ATM, was there a certain color or depth that was working better? Did you fish in the morning at all? Was there any size to the walleyes that you caught?

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
