I was at a cabin on this lake over the weekend. I went around the lake alot snowmobiling and noticed there was some permanent houses out there. I drilled a hole and the ice was 3 foot thick.
Just wondering if people fished there and what they were catching.

Are you refering to lower balsam up around grand rapids and bovey(balsam township specifically)? You might want to post this in the grand rapids forum. I have a cabin on big balsam up there and do alright, and I know some guys who fish lower balsam but havent myself. Have heard mediocre reports. There is an oler report on the dnr site for it but not a recent one. Small northerns, panfish, bass, maybe some eyes i cant remeber. There are better lakes and potholes around but worth a try.

Adam,

Private access only. There are much better lakes than lower Balsam. The locals can be very rude!

You got that right. I ran into plenty of grumpy people who live by there.

The reason many of them are rude is because a few years back word got out the crappies were hitting,and peaple were driving through peoples yards and throwing garbage around.

I know that can be the reason, but it is not an excuse for rudeness. We all know 2 wrongs don't make a right.
I always say I'm movin' north where there are fewer people so I can get away from the madness that exists, but I know I will run into it everywhere.
Me, I just act as considerately as possible, and try to teach youngsters the same.
Good fishin' to all.
Gene

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!
