mrmillelacs

got back this morning, my son and i fished last night. 4 miles out of hudecs driving out was fine except for a few snow drifts, 15 inches of ice 4 inches of snow 13 feet of water.fished from 2 pm til 10pm- 5 crappies 3 at 13 and a half, one at 13, and one at 11 inches. lots of fish on vex, very few would go for the bait although some would follow a few feet up before losing interest. 3 of the fish caught before dark, 2 after. lots of 5-6 inch perch, and a few small eyes. bad break 1 mile out but crew on the job had a bridge. Wondering if anyone had any better sucess. I was surprised at how few people were out

Hey guys thanks for the posts on the fishing reports. This forum doesn't seem to give many reports on the fishing conditions. I understand that it is slower than last year, but it is still nice to see somthing is happening up there. Hope to get up there soon for some of the big slabs!

Had a couple of guys who were able to get into some northerns, the largest was 36", and four crappies. Heard from someone that a morning bite was happening this morning.

Not a lot of folks out on the ice yet, but that's about to change...folks waiting until they can drive all trucks on the ice and of course the holidays. We've been taking a lot of reservations starting this weekend through March and think most folks are getting the same, so we'll be seeing a lot of fishing posts & good stories soon.

Fished fri night after dark (Got up their a little late!) and sat all day and sunday morning. 2 crappies, lot's of walleyes and a 35" northern on a rattle reel! Boy was that fun. We were out of rogers about 1.5 miles. Lot's of wind and the snow drifts were getting very large around our houses and trucks but the rest of the ice wasn't too bad for driving.

      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?

      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. 😎
