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.

      There’s a lot of nice lakes around garrison. But I second leech you can’t go wrong with Winnie, setup on the mid lake humps. Or leech and try and find the eyes.

      Looking to try fishing crystal and have never ice fished it before. Any suggestions on what to try if I am going for crappies.

      I picked up a used 2013 Forest River True North 20x8 ice house. I got a decent deal on it but the front jack is having problems. When I try to raise up the tongue I get some loud clicking sounds from the jack and it's not raising. I'm prepared to just buy a whole new jack for it since I assume the internals are stripped but has anyone else a similar problem? This jack is rated for 3500lbs and the tongue weight is well under 1000lbs so I'm pretty disappointed with it. For right now I'm just using my car jack. Maybe I'll need it for the rear jacks.....

      Been a slow start to my season but finally found few decent crappies.They were in 23ft off structure. Tungsten jig tipped with white plastic did the trick to bring them topside. Can't beat plastics, caught tons of fish on just one. You know its on and doesn't fall off. Got some cool footage of the flasher in this video too.

      Got a pickup, wheel house, ATV and portable. Been to (not all this year) Lake of the Woods, Upper Red, and Mill Lacs. Any recommendations for something new? Otherwise may try to get to know the lakes near Garrison.

      5 sauger Saturday, 4 sauger and 3 pout Sunday out of Adrian’s. Started in deeper water, east of the crowd on Saturday. Sunday I moved around a bit, even drove the atv west of the crowd, 34 fow, with no luck. Spent the afternoon and evening in 25 fow near pine Island which was the only place I caught fish Sunday. Resort houses where mostly in 34 fow. Back home now.

      Hello from the NW Angle! Fishing remains consistently strong on the Minnesota side this week. Many species are quick to bite leaving anglers with a very mixed bag at the end of the day. We saw multiple 40+ inch Northern, many Perch, even a Lake Trout among an already strong Walleye bite. 22-24 ft on gravel bottom surrounded by mud has been our best spots. Be sure to charge up any Glow tackle in use, with the increasing snow cover, glow or lighted lures have been hot. Pink/white and gold are also very effective on sunny days. The Canadian bite just keeps getting better! Crappies can be found in 30 foot holes while 22-26 ft flats on break lines have been hot for a Sauger/Walleye mix. Remember to stick to well-traveled trails as most have not been staked/marked as of yet. Until next week!

      Not sure about the resort... But I know Adrians road is like 11 miles out past pine Island and they were plowing farther. Guy from my work was 9 miles out last weekend and did good on 14 inch sauger with some walleye mixed in.  He said there is 24 inches of ice.   I would say to try and get away from the groups.  Good luck fishing.

      Am heading up this weekend... Not sure where we going out of... But like to be away from the groups also. I usually go out of hunters but they are having road issues again. I am sure it will be resolved by Friday.
