You will be able to get on. I am from the twin cities and the lakes here are starting
to go and are real black. the temps here have been in the 50s and 60s while up there they have been in the 30s last weekend but today they ahve been in the 40s,you always have a extra week or two up there its farther north and they have more ice then down south. I just drove my truck off the lake monday night
but buy this weekend, you will need a atv
or go out buy foot. I AM HEADING UP THIS WEEKEND, SO DON'T WORRY YOU WILL GET OUT
BUT THE SHORES WILL BE GOING YOU COULD GET A WET FOOT.
P.S I AM NOT THE CRAPPIE KING WHO PUT THE MESSAGE ON HUDACKS FORUM.

where are you from and where were you fishing last. the whole thing is changed up there the fish have moved and are not in the same spots
if you need some help, you can meet me and my friend up there and we can help put you on some fish, hate to see you drive all that ways and maybe not get any fish.

The rain missed us completely today. The patches of frozen snow in the ice are soft but the ice is still in real good shape.

Steve,
We are Iowegians and plan to leave at noon Friday, that would put us there 7:00-7:30. We were there the last weekend in March and fished on the resort side of the pressure ridge and got our limit. We are either going to walk out or use Kelly-p's shuttle service if available when we get there Friday night. Thanks for the info so far and thank you Kelly as well.

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      To bad HSO doesn't have something like this for the Leaders board Top Members contributions. 😕

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
