Hey Guts just got home from Kabe. we had a blast. We set up at the mouth of lost bay. Had good action on the pike friday and also hit a few nice pearch. We hit 3 really nece walleyes but all were over 17" and under 23" bummer. The DNR came out had a good chat with them and the Park Ranger who visits the site. I just wanted to thank you for the help you gave us before we headed up there. I wanted to set up over by the river but one of the guys with had a fit because it was to close to the trail. Thanks again for all your help.

Short hair,
Hey no problem, to bad fishing wasn't better.
The park ranger you saw is the same one who intends to become a moderator for this site and maybe Rainy. His input and answering of questions could be very helpful.

I know the setup by the river entrance is near the trail, but they still get lots of fish there.

All the attention now will be on crappies and in Namakan where they can fish for another month.

I heard thru the ole grapevine that you have quite an outhouse, pretty slick the way it sounds. guts <}}}}}}><

Hey guts, too bad you couldn't make it out to check it out. I heard you work at the Gateway, were you working thurs about noon or Fri, morn. We were the guys who had a dude that didn't have his licence, and had a heck of a time getting one. Finally we got a hold of his LIC #. We also ran into Jason one of the guides who lives next to a resort on the Ash River. He had a real bad day. His house is in the mouth of lost bay. He and his son Matt came out and lost there minnow bucket on the way so we gave him some minnows, then he busted his knuckles up trying to reopen his holes with the auger, and once he got them open he found out his heater was not working. So he and his kidd came and fished with us and had some dinner as well. He told us he would give us a half priced guided trip this spring if we came up. Seemed like a pretty nice guy. Hey thanks again.

Hey that was me at Gateway, now I don't know which guy you were, except I know you weren't the guy getting the license.

I had good intentions of getting down to the lake, but surprisingly enough we had pretty good snowmobile traffic, and I didn't get out of the store long enough to get down that way.

Sounds like Jason had one hell of a bad day, believe me, hes one hell of a nice kid, and a good guide ta boot.

Up here we are quite happy today, we have 3" of new snow, that should make the trails good and help the pressure ridge situation.

Nothing new on the crappie bite, and I suspect Namakan will kick in soon.

Sorry I didn't get down to the lake and see ya, look for ya the next trip. <{{{{><

Hey Guts I was the guy who gave you the coupon for the minnows from the Gateway web site. And we came in sat morn for some shiners. And the guy with me bought the gas cap for the auger. Thanks again I will be sure to recommend your store to any one who plans a trip that way.

      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. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).

      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!
