Sounds like the URL Slab Crappie bite is going very well.

We have a couple of guys who fish it regular and are well known in the Waskish Aarea reporting on the fishing.

CLICK HERE to see how GOOD the Crappie bite is!!!!

There is just something about catching those slab crappies through the ice. The way they shine through the water as they approach the hole and the hard fight they put up. Red Lake is a great place to experience the great winter crappie action. When you get these fish going its fast action and the size will put our little average size Metro crappies to shame. I hope to see a lot of you there on Feb 21 and maybe we can drop a line and share some Metro fishing stories.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

I'll be up that weekend fishing out of some rented houses. A couple of questions:

In order to fish in this event do you have to fish in a certain area or is the whole lake OK?

Is it a shot gun start of sorts or is everyone on their honor?

Looking forward to attending.

You can fish anywhere on the lake outside of the reservation.. You just need to check in and register before the event starts at 8am, then from 8am to 2pm you are free to fish where ever. Be back by 2pm for weigh-in. If you want the full details check out this link or else feel free to ask anything else here.

You can enter all the way up to 10 am. You cannot fish the day of the tourney until after you are registered and checked in.

Here's a few fish that fishnutbob caught out there, with exception of the white crappie. Look for slabs like these on a Red Lake near you wink.gif

A lot of nice fish have been caught out there lately. True slabs too! I would recommend the Red Lake ICE Series for anyone who wants to catch some of these slab crappies, you will get a chance to fish with some of the Pro's that fish Red Lake day in and day out, and you will get to learn some of the things they know and hold dear about fishing Red Lake smile.gif

Another one of the many Red Lake slabs...

Another question - we're already registered, but my group may not be able to get there by 8:00 (about a 3-hour drive from home). If we show up after 8:00, are we SOL as far as the contest goes? Or will there be a way to register on ice?

Bear Paw Guides, Russ and Rick, Chris Haley, Matt Breuer and other FM Pro Staff will be there to help try and get those who want help to get on fish.

Looks like this Crappie Contest will be one to remember.

Some very fun folks are already getting prepared for this ICE Series Event smile.gif

      Well, the highway 70 access won me over yesterday, only to break my heart today. I should have seen the warning signs at the start of the day. Get to the launch, get everything ready, about to put boat in the water...forgot the life jackets! 😫 I drove to the Walmart in Pine City and bought 2 life jackets! Finally got on the water. Was a nice boat ride upstream. Was hoping maybe to make it all the way up to the mouth of the Snake River. Probably made it halfway before it got too shallow. I most likely could have made it through had I had more ambition, but we needed to start fishing. Hooked into a few fish right away, but lost them. I’m pretty sure one was a small muskie. Ended up drifting all the way back to boat launch, and only caught 2 fish! And both were just a couple hundred yards up from the launch! Was a smallie and a little walleye. So yes, slow day indeed. Looks like a nice trail system at the access though. Might have to plan a hike there this summer.

      I am going up to camp in the middle of June.  Anybody have any suggestions about baits and depths etc. for Walleyes and Bass?
    • Muskies
      May 31...Another beautiful afternoon on rainy lake with my wife...fishing east end this time...out for 4 hours 20+ walleyes and one 30” northern. Surface water temperature 65 degrees in 10-14 feet...jigs and chubs...Cajun batter on the fillets...

      Going to lake vermillion for the first time. June 13. Staying near Arrow Head Point, Isle of Pines. Only have a small boat with 15 HP so looking for some tips for where to go for big pike that is reasonably close given my boat. I do not mind a drive, but I know how conditions can get on big water.  I also plan to go to Trout Lake (reason for bringing the small boat) If anyone has tips on Trout Lake for Pike.  Thanks and #tightlines!
    • rayguy
      Heading up to chain for a couple weeks.  Need some general info on the panfish bite.  They still shallow?  Got a couple grandkids coming up and any info sent on the panfish action will be appreciated.  Thanks   Ray guy

      Maybe see if you slide the winch back on the tongue an inch or two. The roller needs to contact the boat to keep it from bouncing. Should check to make sure the rear bunk rollers line up with the rear transom for stability.  
    • gunner55
      Every rig we've owned the roller is above the eye & snug to the boat when it's loaded.

      I looked at my rig yesterday . It is a matched boat/trailer package from Lund . My roller is above the eye but snug onto the bow , probably an inch maybe more, higher than yours.
