Reports were good last night. Fish the shoreline rocks or garrison reef with crankbaits. Longline with floating rapalas.

D-Man,
Thinking of hitting the lake for the first time on friday, coming from duluth area. Would like to spend the day learning an area/plotting GPS points so I can catch the first part of the night bite. Would you recommend going out of Malmo or down by Mac's for a first-timer? Do not want to bite off more than I can chew for 1 day. Looks like the wind should die down by friday anyway (predicted 30-40 tomorrow day)
Thanks for any tips you can pass on.

xplorer/ The sand in Malmo has been good the past few nights from what my partner has said. The sand can also put out a great day bite on leeches if you can still find some. But if you get a strong west wind tommorow like they are saying you might do very well out of Macs fishing the shoreline rocks and humps like Flamingo. Without actually fishing those area's myself in awhile, I would suggest stopping at fisher's and talking to those guy's to see what has been going. Then head south and stop in at Mac's and get some info. If it were me i guess i would hit that east shoreline out of Mac's if we get that wind tomorow. I would also call Mac's tomorow and ask if the wind is blowing in or another resort that is on that east shoreline. Start with cranks working the 8-10 depths at sundown. As the night goes on have a few rods ready with floating raps and get into the 4-6 foot shorline area with an electric if you have one,let out lots of line. Last weekend we caught fish a stones throw from shore, so dont be shy to get close. The bite does get better the later it gets this time of year so dont get discouraged right away. Another tip,there is a feeder creek(cedar creek) next to the cedar creek public access that puts out some monsters trolling in front of the mouth if the main lake is too windy fri night. Let me know how you do or where you ended up. iam headed back up Fri as well. Good Luck to ya

I'm hoping to pull some crankbaits in the Garrison area on Fri or Sat evening. Anyone have some results or suggestions for location, lures, time period, depth, etc?
Thanks.

D-man,
Thanks for the quick reply. Watching the weather today, winds only around 15 sw and only predicting 5-10 for tomorrow. Really hoping to be able to get off work tomorrow. I've got my last 1/4 lb of leeches left that need to be abused so I may try to hit the sand for the morning and then pull and head down towards cedar creek landing and spend the afternoon trolling and marking gps runs for after dark. Will try running a planer board up shallow with raps and the elecric. Have you ever tried trolling with lil' rippers up shallow? I used them on the St Louis river this spring with good success over 4-5' gravel bars, might be too small a bait for this time of year tho.

Gotta go, I think I'm starting to feel kinda sick, ya that its, not well at all!!
Will let you know how i do if I get to go.
Thanks for the help and good luck out there this weekend.

If you're going by Cedar don't forget to get on Big Point in 8'-10' of water and troll shad raps, #11 raps(for 8') or #18 raps (for 10'). 3 mile reef and The reef that runs north off Hennepin are prime for big pigs as well. I troll #11 raps on the edges of the 3' to 6' reef and #18 raps in the 10' rocks off the reef on the west side of it when the reef trollers get too thick.

You're on the edge of prime time for full moon fishing the above spots, which in my calculations starts to end on the 3rd.

Let us know how it goes.

      What kind of childhood dreams do you have? Have you accomplished them? I have always wanted to ice fish from a snow fort. Well, my dream has come true. Its never to late to make your dreams come true. Be Awesome Outdoors.

      Update on driving on Bald Eagle anybody

      I recently met up with my buddy Al to check out a small lake that I had never fished before (Al had only open water fished it). We didn't get to the lake until after sundown and we immediately started drilling holes looking for fish. It didn't take us too long to find an area that the fish were frequenting. We caught a couple fish and set up the flipover. We wound up getting into some nice Crappies and to our surprise some really nice Sunfish. I would really like to get back to this lake soon to explore some new areas and learn it a bit more as it definitely has quality fish!

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much. 
    • Spearing Machine
      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!
