It was a great seminar. A well done power point presentation that flowed smoothly from one topic to the next. Very pro-active Q&A after each segment so all questions were answered if you spoke up.

Keith does a great job explaining the intricate details of a presentation without just hawking sponsor products. When a product is named it is because it is essential to make things work to your advantage.

Great guy, we chatted river tactics for a while, seams he heard somewhere there may be a sumo piggy or two in the Red River.

FM Walleyes Unlimited should be commended for another great meeting and guest speaker. They have several kids events planed yet this year and a ice fishing tournament. The club is a active club and in my opinion one of the best around the region.

Great meeting.

You should have been there.

Coool, I wish we had some kinda club thing like that happening up this way. Let me ask you something, do you know anything about Star lake, my stepbrother lives in Fargo and has a cabin there. Says it's about an hour and a half or so from Fargo? He wants me to come down there to do some icefishing. I know nothing at all of this lake and he's never icefished so it sounds like a challenge!!! Any thing you can tell me? What forum would this lake perhaps be on?

Thanks...Fisky

Fisky,

Star is a great lake with nice crappies, walleye, and slough-sharks in it. However, I know very little about it other than to say I've fished there a few times and caught a few fish.
The Detroit Lakes and the Ottertail forum might have info about Star in them. If you figure something out about that lake remember who refered you to those forums and share the wealth, man!

Thanks CD

As I said my stepbrother who owns the cabin down there has never icefished. He bought the place last spring and has told me of some nice crappies he caught that spring, and a 25" wally he got off his dock casting at nite. I am gonna make it down there as I've been bugging him for the last few winters to come up to LOW and icefish with me, but he still has'nt! I appreciate your info and will post the same questions on the threads you mentioned. When I get back from down there I will pass on the How's, When's and Where's of our success or failure, for sure!

Best regards....Fisky

      There were a lot of ATV/SxS running around the lake but I found it quite slippery even with AWD engaged.  I did see a couple of snowmobiles crossing the lake.  There is enough snow to keep the slides lubricated, especially when the temperature is above freezing.  If your track is studded that would help traction and slide lubrication.

      It looks like it's ATV/SxS season on the lake. Snowmobile season is on temporary (or permanent) hiatus.

      Was back Tuesday-Thursday this week after I discovered that walleye season ends on Sunday, February 25th.  I thought that the season has closed the last day of February in recent years.  I see that I fished on Monday, February 28th two winters ago so lucky I didn't get busted then.   The ice was in very good shape.  I found 15-18 inches of solid ice in the areas I checked.  There was no standing water on the ice and very little snow as shown in the 3 pictures of the McKinley Park landing from Thursday afternoon.  When the temperature was below freezing, the ice was very slippery.  When it warmed up mid day it wasn't as bad.  The landing was starting to deteriorate today, but with the cold weather on Friday it should freeze over.  It may start to get bad again by Sunday when it warms up.  Full size vehicles were still driving out close to Birch Island so apparently that path is still good.   Fishing was very good for late season.  Most of my walleyes were again 9-12 inches, but I did catch a 21, 24, and 27.  I was lucky to catch my limit of 14-15 inchers today to bring home for a meal.  The walleyes preferred small rainbows, but also liked lively chubs.  I caught four fish on the same small rainbow today when I was running low on small ones.  I finally gave up on that minnow when I went 20 minutes without a bite.  I had 3 rainbows come off the hook on their own; one when I dropped it in the hole and the other two when I dropped them to the bottom.  I think that happens when you hook them in the soft part of their body.  I caught my first tulibee of the winter (15 inches) and it really stunk up the house.  I also caught a lot of perch for the first time this winter.  I only caught 1 perch the previous 14 days I fished, but I caught 11 perch in these 3 last days, including six that were 11-13 inches long.  I wish I liked to eat perch so I could have kept them.  The hardest bite I had this week was by the pictured 8 inch walleye.  This little guy grabbed that full sized minnow and pulled it quickly to to bottom of the hole.  (However the 27 inch walleye did peel off a bit of drag bringing her in).  Morning bite from 830 to 1230 was best.   If you venture out the last weekend of the season, good luck.  Be cautious of ice conditions since the sun can really melt some holes in the ice this late in the season.
