These events have been a blast. I have fished all the major events so far (Winnie, Mille Lacs, Red) and even one of the additional gatherings that was held on West Battle of which I have the bragging rights of 'Worlds Greatest Ice Angler'!!

I hope to see a big group on LOW as it should be the best event yet - tons of great prizes to be had!! Not to mention the fish should be snapping!!

See ya'll there!

I will be making this one also!! I have also made Winne, Mille Lacs, and Red and also the get together on Minnetonka.

If you want to meet up with some very knowledgable fisherman These are the events to do it. I have been very impressed with all the Prostaffs willingness, friendliness to share tips and tactics and let me tag along to their spots before, during and after the events.

I have met some great people and made some friends. Leading to more good fishing opportunities and good times. It's hard to pass that up anytime!

I'll be there with bells on at 5am! Man I can't wait, I truly look forward to seeing everyone again, it seems to get even more fun each and every time. I love getting to know other FM'ers, as well as getting to know fellow prostaff even better. You really picked a great group of guys Rick!

Come join us and meet fellow FM'ers, everyone I've met has been a great guy or gal! The people and Brats are enough to get me there, and the prizes don't hurt either...

I just got back from LOW today, and the fish are biting! We caught a lot of walleyes and saugers everyday as well as a few tulipees, perch, and eelpout. Here's a 29 incher I caught two days ago...

The fish are moving closer in to shore and there is no need to drive 15 miles out anymore. I predict a lot of fish are going to be caught in two weeks at the ICE Series and some big ones too! Hope to see a lot of you there!

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

Nice fish Matt. I have been after those pigs all winter. Is it still swimming? I know you CPR, so I should have not asked. I am still working on the wife for the event.

Yep, a replica is in the process.

To be honest, I had one that I lost right under the ice that I think would have been a little bigger then this one. Hopefully we see a few more pigs in two weeks at the ICE Series.

Northlander,
I'll e-mail you about saturday. Might have a little problem, we'll have to work things out. Looking forward to the ICE Series.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

      @Rick G   have you changed your approach or how you are fishing with no snow cover this year? It seems to really have changed things. Fish are spooky to  any movement above the ice.  Even just jigging a rod with your hand etc. spooks fish. Weed lines are not dying off etc., fish are staying up shallower etc.   I have had a lot more luck just dead sticking and bobber fishing and being away from holes or intentionally drilling holes in slush pockets or drifts to eliminate shadows etc.

      Awesome cause Rick!!👍👍👌

      Fishing has been pretty good for the most part with the exception of a slow day mixed in here and there. Been on a few different lakes in the last week. Ice conditions continue to fluctuate depending on warm and cold spells.  Right now there is 7-8 inches on the lakes I have been on. Snow cover is just about gone again, and with the warm days coming I think our ice season might be coming to an end locally.  Today I fished with a good buddy and we were on a mission... To find enough fresh fish to feed the folks at a local veterans home Friday dinner.  Mission accomplished!!!   Found a good mix of perfect eater size fish😁.

      Thanks for clearing up your statement.  So what is the daily limit down there?  
    • SkunkedAgain
      How thick is the snow on the lake? Is there any left?

      His guide business harvests less than 1,000 teal a year. The state of Louisiana harvests over 150,000 teal a year and over 2 million ducks total. If that makes sense. 
    • leech~~
      Maybe I'm confused, but I hope one guide is not killing anywhere near the birds as an entire state of hunters?

      On the south end...   Ice fishing continues strong and it is still winter on the border.    Overnight temps in the teens and twenties are maintaining ice nicely.  Fishing continues to be excellent.  It has been an incredible year for walleyes and saugers with both numbers and size.     Resort fish houses and sleeper fish houses are available.  Some ice roads are allowing pickup trucks pulling wheelhouses as well.  Check with each individual ice road for specific limits.   As always, and certainly this year, it is important to stay on the resort ice roads.  It is tempting to go off on your own as there isn't much snow, but that is a risky move any time of the year.  Resorts and outfitters keep their roads on the best ice and monitor it numerous times per day.   Lake of the Woods enjoys an extended ice fishing season each year.  Fish houses are allowed on the ice through March 31st, the walleye / sauger season goes through April 14th and the pike season never ends.   The majority of ice fishing for walleyes and saugers is taking place in 24 - 34 feet of water.  Jigging one line and using a live minnow on the second line is the way to go.   Pike anglers fishing shallower shoreline breaks and reporting good activity and big fish.  Pike activity will only increase as we approach the month of March.  Arming your spread with a mixture of live and dead baits will allow you to quickly figure out what the pike wants that day. Alewife, smelt, herring, numerous sizes of live suckers, or even large shiners work well. On the Rainy River...  Most ice fishing is taking place on the lake.  There are a couple of resorts that ice fish on the Rainy River.  Know ice conditions or work through a resort or outfitter for safety.    The river is open east of Birchdale.  Those who enjoy the spring open water season on the river are optimistic the river will open early.  Is your boat and fishing gear ready when it does? Up at the NW Angle...   Another very good week of ice fishing up at the Angle.  Walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, eelpout, pike and some big crappies in the mix.   Water conditions are clearer this winter compared to most.  For that reason, the morning and evening bites have been stronger than midday overall. Jigging one line and deadsticking the second line is the way to go.  Electronics help in determining what the fish want that given day and will up your catch of fish.   Ice fishing has been excellent, come on up.  It's still winter on the border!

      There's only one Waterfowl guide in the country that I went to. He runs about 20 trips a year. So he harvests about 185,000 less teal a year than some of the individual southern states. In MN, lots of the teal are gone before the early teal season 
    • leech~~
      Wow, don't want to be one of those guys.  But, you don't think such liberal limits down there, hurts the northern population next spring?
