I was wondering if the DNR has started stripping eyes yet at cutfoot? Maybe I am a little early, but I would really like to get my son up there to see the "GIANTS" It is always a nice sight to see. Gets my blood pumping big time.

The northerns are in their spring spawning areas, but I'm not sure about the walleye stripping at Cutfoot. I would think this weekend they'll have fish in the nets, but not positive. I'm working all weekend and have connections that will let me know if they have fish in the nets or not. I'll post when I find out.

They are getting everything ready this coming week and will start but they will probably be getting walleyes by the next weekend. I'm excited to go see those big pigs too!

I heard they put the nets in last night, but I don't know if they have any fish in the nets yet. The couple streams I've checked around the D.R. area only have suckers and northerns in them. It should be any day now, especially with the warm up we're going to have. As soon as I hear or see some thing, I'll let you know.

Thank you for the information, I live in Rapids but never get much of a chance to check things out up there.

There are fish in the nets now, although I'm not sure on size. I'm sure there's some hawgs in there. Hopefully this warmer weather will keep up, they'll really start running then.

Was up there this morning. They had a lot of fish in the nets, and some big ones at that. They said this might be the last day if they reach their quota today.

I was up this past Saturday. Lots of fish in the nets! Hopefully some of those big ones will see me again during the Winnie Walleye Trail! I've often wondered what percentage of 'eyes the DNR comes through their nets? I can't see that all of the eye's in the system head towards Little Cutfoot. I'd guess maybe 25% come through their nets? Anyone else have any guess's or heard a % number from the DNR?

Brian, Have you fished the WWT? I am planning on fishing it this year. I will miss the first one due to my brother's wedding but will hit the rest. By the looks of the results, it's a tough one with that slot there. If you have, what did you think of it?
I think you're right about the big fish. Look at all the fish that are caught on the big lake on opener, post-spawn fish who might have traveled but have definitely not traveled all the way from little cut foot. Some are still spittin spum. I can't imagine all the big pigs that are spawning on the big lake--winni and cut foot. Good luck this summer and hopefully you find some of 'em. See ya there.

Hey trapper,
I've never fished the WWT before, so it'll be interesting to say the least. I'm fishing with a buddy here from D.R. That's too bad you have to miss the first one! I'm thinking the June and Sept. tourney's will be fairly easy fishing. I think July and August will be tougher. We should try to hook up and chase some trout once season opens! Let me know!

I suppose I can leave those walleyes alone for one day. We'll definitely have to hook up and hunt down some trout. Caught a bunch of crappies yesterday. They're up shallow now. Those crappies keep me going until opener. See ya on the water.

      Was on the US Side between Island View and the Brule for the last two days.  Tough sledding.  A few 15's for the cast iron, three over 22 and a lot of peanuts.  Nothing big, and not much luck marking pods of fish.  Probably spent as much time graphing as I did fishing.  Still shallow I think.  Casted shorelines and caught a few little smallmouth for fun.     Back at it next week Tuesday and Wednesday.  I'm going to go bottom bouncing in some deeper water and try a few trolling patterns with rapalas... see what happens.

      Hit the big pond today ,, Launched from McQuade and found a good 10 degree temp difference  from tea to clean water ,, Fish didn't cooperate like we planned but did go 5 for 7 in 7 hours trolling but that's fishing not catching ,, Great day spent on the water with pals ,,, Good luck to those who dont have 7 day weekends like us retired folks

      Haven't been active for some time.    Life can do that to you.    Changed jobs doing somewhat the same but what is different is I've been involved with the duty and honor of interment of our Nation's Veteran's.  I'm working at the new MN Veteran's Cemetery on Hwy 53 just North of Pike Lake.  I see myself doing this till its time to retire.   That and servicing Nils Master Blades during Winter months has been kept me extremely busy. Spring, Summer, and Fall is my personally resolution to enjoy my time and take to the water as much as possible. With that I'll share what I can.   Knowing you all have busy schedules too, I ask you share when you can.  We don't ask for your secret spots but share as you can.

      Catching blues under the bridge next to archery range in Shakopee on the Minnesota River. Water rescinding about 2ft a day.

      This forum Great Again.      Lets get some reports going on the Big lake going.  I know we have lurkers and that can share.  For those that don't know, you have tools at find patterns, water temps, mudlines, and surface temps.   Coastwatch for surface water temps.  http://www.coastwatch.msu.edu/superior/s1.html UMD Buoy Data for water temps. http://www.d.umn.edu/buoys/ Modis for mud lines.  https://coastwatch.glerl.noaa.gov/modis/modis.php?region=s&page=1&template=sub&image=a1.19170.1900.LakeSuperior.143.250m.jpg    Hottest tip I can give lately an the temp break has been right on the mud line.   Compare that data on your next trip out.

      I would think the different items would be marked, or do you mean they wear gloves over their eyes?

      Has anyone here fished silver creek before? I'm looking to try a new spot on the north shore but I cant find much information on it. If you have is it fairly easy to access fishing spots there?
    • delcecchi
      I can see how it could happen.  Remember that these days all the prep people are wearing gloves, so might not be able to feel any difference.   Or both could have been frozen...
    • macgruber
      Thanks for the tips, I’ll report back after and let you know how we do.  Very excited to get up there.....

      Well, my annual trip was only an extended weekend this year, as I had to use my actual vacation to go to Florida for a wedding.    Drove up Friday morning after work, and was able to hit Two Island Lake for a few hours in the evening. As soon as we boated to my secret spot, a storm cloud moved over and the wind was insane! Temps dropped, and I only caught a few smallies.   on Saturday we went to Greenwood Lake. Even though we caught about 50 bass, it was still a slow day. Weather was perfect. Bugs were horrible! My dad caught a nice lake trout. My daughter caught her first northern pike, and I also caught one. Fished this lake for 30 years and never even seen a pike, now they’re taking over!   Fished Hungry Jack on the final day. Weather was once again perfect! Only caught a few bass. My son absolutely loves fishing off the resort’s dock. So the kids had a blast catching sunnies (including my daughter’s first).    Was a bummer we only got to stay up there a few days. My dad stayed until today, but I haven’t heard how he did. Didn’t see any moose. Was also the first time I’ve been up there and did not catch a trout. We got our fill of Sven & Ole’s and world’s best donuts. We might try to go back up next month.
