Any NW MN lake comments???

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been to the Union, Maple, Sarah lakes region as of late? I know the rivers around T.R.F. have been screwed-up for a while so there must be some kind of reports or rumors about these lakes. No specifics needed, just some conversation to keep this site interesting.
How about you LipRipper? What's been going on? I got the voice coach M left for me. I'm assuming he meant largemouth and not smallmouth as he stated in the message.
K2 I'll be calling you tonight.

P.S.-Practice CPR ;-)

White-tips, not a whole lot going on here. The river has been consistently slow but still gives up a walleye or two. Smallies are starting to show up too but way down river. We did manage to catch some big mouths on Union that day he left the message but nothing to get to excited about. Give me a call when you are in the area.

sure hope things straighten up soon.
we have hit maple several times so far. the only day we caught fish was the day we went through several dozen crappie minnows on bullheads.

the other times we have been skunked.

last year at this time w had already had some great fishing here in town and at maple.
not yet this year.

      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.
