Shagman I drove off the access landing last sunday county 35, it was good going. I would think the west one by Northern Acres would be to.

I was out on Bowstring on Friday night and saturday night out from one of the north accesses in about 17 feet one night and 23 the other. All together we caught a grand total of 4 perch, all really small. One swallowed it so we kept him, way small though. Hey who was that out there saturday night that I talked to real late? Well sorry I dont have more info. Later guys, brian

I got stuck out there yesterday with my Dodge 4x4, while trying to make it to a favorite fishing spot. Two hours later, I was on my way home. The snow's getting pretty deep. Think I'll take the snowmobile next time.

Fished Bowstring yesterday thinking this will probably be my last time here before the end of Walleye season we targetted Perch and Walleye only. It is getting hard to get around with all the snow I fished the shore lines and by dark was able to find four Walleyes and nine Perch over 9 inches. We released many small Northern and Perch I did see a couple Crappie caught but sounded like it was slow fishing fo them.

Hey, Bill. Just curious if that was you who talked to us when we were asked why three of us were fishing by one hole? My buddy had two crappies on the ice. If so did you fish the same area only closer to shore later? Just curious!! Anyway the crappie fishing was really S-L-O-W. Three of us fished two days and ended up with 21 and also 9 perch. Lots of hours for those critters though. The only reason we came back Sunday was it was about the only lake where we could still drive on and that was very marginal especially after the wind Sunday. Anyone fishing the area now I would suggest bringing other means of transportation on the area lakes!! At least all the snowmobilers are happier this year.

      Got out to fish Island lake thursday with the warm temps,,, Lots of traffic on the lake and the fish seemed to cooperate ,,, Our smallest walleye was 13 1/2  so no cigars  for this trip,,,, all on jig and plastics,,, hope to get back out there again next week

      I also have a north facing cabin at the bottom of the hill and I have the Weboost as well.  without it I just barely have reception and with it mounted to the outside of the cabin I can get enough reception for calla and texts (2-3 bars) and slow internet. I plan on mounting it in a tree this spring and should get better reception yet. I paid $399 at best buy for mine about a year ago.

      cg2, Welcome to the forum.   You may try looking at the DNR Lake finder site to look up some of the lakes in your new area for their test results.  Good luck.

      Hello all,   I am new to the area and don't know where to begin fishing. I'm looking for a lake around Mankato that has walleye / crappies in it. I would like to make it out a few times this fall yet and then hit the ice hard. Any advice on what lakes to start with? There's so many that I don't know how to choose which one to go to.

      Gonna try and get out for a bit over the weekend and hit some shore spots. Will post a report if they bite.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.
