People have been catching fish out by rocky reef. Rocky Reef Resort has a marked road and had vehicles driving out to the houses.

The bite is going great out of Rocky's rental houses. Some guys were getting 10-14 fish per nite. The perch are scattered. The road that goes out of Rocky goes to the rentals and privates. You cant go anywere else with a car or truck. The ice is thick on the road but elsewere there are little brakers everywhere and the ice is terrible. The walleyes are biting all through the nite and at 5:30 to 7:00 am. I would suggest renting a house v.s staying out all night in a portable. The fish were not biting until after dark. My trip was cut short this weekend due to an accident to a friend. If you rent from Rocky tell them Derek sent you. Good Luck..

I will be there Friday afternoon through Sunday,..probably stay until 6ish or so,...depending upon the bite at that time. If the bite is strong I will stay until it isn't or until I have to be to work on Monday morning.

I hear rumor that Keith might have gotten out to Andersen's high and dry! And that the few houses that are out there are having a whole lot of fun! Any word on this?

I fished out of Rocky Reef Resort on monday evening, til 7:30. Fishing wasn't great. I only caught one 15" walleye and a few perch, wasn't marking a whole lot of fish either. I fished near the rentals, where the resort owner suggested, in 19" feet of water. I guess fishing(catching) was off there last weekend too. It sounded like I was a week too late, because supposedly the fishing (catching) was hot the week before.

Mike, the fishing was hot there last week. I caught the tailend of the bite Thursday. Sounded like the circus that came in Sat may have had a great impact. Another note the bite was all night long well after 7:30. I will be up there this Sun-Tues.

What are you guys using to catch the eyes? I'll be up Friday night until Monday afternoon, and looking for some great places to eat, and a few things to do. Although fishing is always my main focus, we've got 5 people going and I'll need some out-of-house time to keep my sanity.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
