Will be up in Barnum for a couple days this week to do some ice fishing. Anyone have any lakes around Duluth/Moose Lake/ or Wright that they could suggest for crappies or pike or both? C&R fishing only. We just want to tip a few back and catch some fish. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

tjwierz2,

Sturgeon would be my choice for pike fishing in that area. You probably won't catch any goliaths, but you should go through a fair amount of bait. Just find the weedline on a point or a hump, and I'd say you're good to go. There are some darn nice crappies in there as well. Where to find them, I don't know? I'll bet it's a late day or night bite. The water is fairly clear.

Let us know how you do.

Thanks bornofice, but I actually got your message right after we got back from our trip.

My buddy and I fished Turner Lake yesterday near McGregor. I caught the biggest crappie about 5 minutes into our trip though, it was a hair over 12 inches. We had slow to moderate action for the crappies, but it was consistent throughout the day. We caught about 15 crappies in 6 hours, which isn't outstanding...but it kept us busy.

I also brought up a pike through the hole...and we had another 3 pike on tipups, they were 19-22 inches. We also had another 3 on the tipups that got off as we were bringing them in. All fish were released to fight another day.

Thanks for the tip though...we will definitely hit sturgeon at a later date as it is much closer to where I stay.

Hey Bornofice,

You mentioned sturgeon lake for crappies and pike. Well, my brother-in-law and his buddy were fishing sturgeon last weekend and his buddy brought up a 32" WALLEYE weighing 12 lbs. Biggest walldad I've ever seen...he's having it mounted. Thought you may like to know.

Did I say pike? I meant walleyes wink.gif

Hey, is there anyway you can scan a picture of it and send it to me. I got a buddy who's been beating his chest about a 10lber he got a couple weeks ago. He didn't think many bigger than his would be caught ice fishing this year. I want to knock him back to earth a little.

      Thanks, Coast Guard..... for not making ships flush their bilge at sea.   For decades after the problem was apparent.

      Especially early season while you still have green weedbeds. You hit the nail on the head.

      Is anyone interested in pheasant hunting in SD in Mid or Late November?  I used to do more of it but kinda got busy with really young kids for a few years there and lost the dog around the same time. I basically gave it up for a while. I would like to start making a trip or two back out to SD and would really like to meeting some other guys who enjoy the sport.  It would be great to find a few new friends around the same age +/- 10 years and maybe some of the same interests in fishing and hunting. Live in the Twin Cities area so we could drive down if you are in the area or just meet out in SD sometime.

      I do not believe that is from Red. It shows sunny's under the smallest fish and according to the DNR, there are none in Red.

      On the main basin... As water temps approach mid 40's, walleye anglers reporting strong fall bite. Good fish caught despite a lot of precipitation this past week.  Clear weather in forecast.  Walleyes staging at various south shore locations in 20-29'.  Jig and frozen shiner the ticket. Anchor up and jig with gold, glow red, or gold/orange.  Fish are very active. On the Rainy River... Strong walleye activity continues.  Jig and frozen shiners continue to be go to method with some anglers also trolling crankbaits.  Shiner run has slowed for the moment but good numbers of walleyes in river.  Sturgeon have the feed bag on.  The sturgeon catch and release season goes though April 23, 2019.  The bite is on!     Up at the NW Angle... Fishing continues to be excellent.  Limits of walleyes being caught in 14 - 25'.  Jigging still producing.  Look for areas of current in neck down areas and outside of bays.  Fall crappie bite continues strong.  Big pike are making their presence felt, like it or not!  Muskie trollers boating and releasing good numbers of fish.  The best fall fishing is yet to come!
