Going to Jessie Veiw on Jessie Lake this Sunday. Have learned from FM forum that point near resort good spot. Wondering about rest of lake. Wife is wondering [worrying] about bug situation ie.mosquitos biting flies. Will be fishing with eight year old nephew, need a spot to catch fish[any kind] to keep him from throwing everything in tackle bags.Also what the heck is swimmers itch? See you in a week Tim O

for walleyes try the sunken humps in the middle of the lake or the weed lineseast side that whole shoreline is good. Northerns keep on the weed edge and the panfish try in the north and south end bays or the weed edges also.

Walleye action has been sporadic all year - we've a few larger fish, but haven't strung together a great outing yet. Walleyes have been biting 10-22 feet on leeches.

Northerns and perch are pretty much everywhere. I'll be up this weekend - look for a guy in a green and tan Alumacraft boat with a red hat.

How did you end up doing this weekend? We got 8 fish in 11-14 feet on leeches - they seemed to be biting better after all the may flies left.

little buddy

i believe swimmers itch comes from duck guano. It's a parasite that digs into your body. One needs to shower or towel off right away upon getting out of the water where these babies exist.

Just got back from Jessie Lake yesterday. Fishing was good,caught many northerns,one thirty inches or there about, many in the twenty-two to twenty-six range, and lots of smaller. nice largemouth of around three,three and a half. Nephew and sister in law caught two of the biggest bluegill I've ever seen,had to be two pounds apiece. Caught lots of perch,a few nice jumbos most seven inches or smaller. And rock bass. Everything still swimming for someone else to catch,or to grow bigger for our next trip. Didn't fish for any walleye,had too much fun with everything else. Jessie View resort a great place to stay, Tim and Rita good people,very helpful. Sixteen hour drive a killer but worth the trip. thanks again Tim & Rita, Good fishing everyone.

West side of lake. Go north out of jessie view Go past small cove full of houses still on west side of lake. There is a small point just past cove think a small creek runs into lake there Combination of lily pads and millfoil. Dropped unweighted crawler on small live bait hook into holes in pads/millfoil. Slightly lower water temp there.Good luck

      My transducer issue was during open water.   My hypothesis after several transducers was that freezing them after having been in the water damaged them.    Once I stopped letting them freeze then they stopped going bad.   Maybe some water was getting into them and causing damage when it froze.   The transducer in my Minnkota  US2 is fine with freezing.

      I fished by the Lester area yesterday n today. I was in 75-78’ water. Had one school of coho’s chase my jig all the way to the bottom of the ice. I looked down the hole and was amazed by the fish just swarming around my jig and just nipping the tale. That was my very first time out there. Didn’t catch any, but seeing those fish made it all worth it. At Lester there is an Easier way out there if you go to the south side of the river. It’s an easier trail to follow out onto the lake. There must be some open water just north of there. There was a lot of mallards flying around and landing. ?

      I don’t have what your requesting , but you can do just as I did to verify such changes by calling the Mn DNR at 651-296-6157 ...

      When you rubbed your hand on the ducer before, did you notice a thin layer of ice on it?  I’m guessing No, with how you described the situation, but that can happen with a ducer that’s below freezing when you dunk it in the water.  It ruins sensitivity.     You’re open ice fishing, yes?  Not in the warmth of a house?  Like the others mentioned, could just be your graph doesn’t like the cold.  And it’s always better to have the depth range locked in than on auto.   Good luck Bob.

      Do you have a link to an article or regulation that shows the changes?
    • Wanderer
      Yeah, I think we’ve had enough.  The silver lining for me is I DONT plan on fishing this weekend.  But I do have to ready my sled for next weekend in ON.  I’m hoping the snow isn’t as bad up there.  Strange to think it’s a possibility but yeah, that’s how much we have in MN.   I kept my face plastered to the plane window going down to Denver on Monday.  The snow line peters out around the NE/CO border.  The only people not complaining about snow and cold at home were from CA!   I thought there was a noticeable lack of fishouses out on our MN lakes too.  I hope to get a good view of Mille Lacs when we come into Brainerd.  It was amazing how small the lake looked on the way out! 😄

      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.
    • artjaco
      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
