Hey just thought I would pass on a tip that is proving to be very productive as of late.

Many people on LOW, Red Lake River and surrounding lakes are getting some real good action useing Rattle Raps through the ice... I have never used them in the winter but they are seeming to bring them in like crazy??? Drop it down and jig like crazy... I gave it a go today and it worked..

Another tip is that I started to test out my cat baits under the ice.. and they are working. ... not for cats though.. but Pike are chomping them up.... two nice pike today on the cat bait. I don't give out all my secrets but if you search the forums you will find my bait of choice... I did however modify it a little today.. but that might be posted if you ask real nice :-)

crank up the heaters and jig...........................

Hey Wiskers how was fishing after I left last night? Still having them jumping around in the wrong hole? Didn't see your truck this morning did you make it out at all this morning? When you going out fishing again?

Wiskers,

The rattle trap thing is an old northern hunters trick. Some guys will put down dead suckers and put a hookless rattle trap down between them and "call 'em in". It's amazing how much noise those little things make!
You find any decent eye fishing?

fishin man... I was down there yesterday all day... Only seen suckers and cats. I am going again Friday.. gonna move the houses. That Big Pike in the other hole dancing on top of the water was quite a sight.... My heart pounded for at least an hour after that one. LOL LOL ... For the rest of you, I caught a nice Pike the other day in the dam. It was about 8#.. Well I have two holes in my house about 2feet by 3 feet. Well I caught the pike in the right side hole but the pike insisted on going out the left hole and dance on top of the water twice soaking the fish house.. LOL... until he got wrapped around the camera cord.. cody spotted him wrapped up but it was too late, he shook the hook loose and was gone, giggling his little hiney off at us i bet.. As a matter of fact.. the more I think about it that may have been a Muskie??? It was very light colored and had dark markings and a real long nose.... or a cross... Hummmmmm.... Wish we could have seen it longer..

scoot.... Ya I guess your right. I guess what ever makes noise will bring in any fish for investigation... I have not gotten it to work yet but only tried once. I am going to start trying it more to see if maybe it will bring in cats too..

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
