Has anybody been out on Ann fishing for panfish? I've had the best luck near the inflowing river on the west side in the spring or at the mouth of the out flowing river to the north later on. I've also had good luck fishing for northerns in the out flowing river in the spring but they run a little small 1-5 lbs. Does anybody still have luck with walleyes here or does the combo of Regs and Indian usage keep people from using this lake? Any response would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim

Ice Hole

I haven't fished it yet this year, but last year I did awesome in that little bay that the road seperates from the lake. (Southwest end I think?) You need a small boat/canoe to get back there, but its worth it. Many sunnies over 8" and crappies over 11". The walleyes are supposed to be good on Anne, but I haven't fished for them.

Ice Hole,
I know the place your talking about but have never fished in there. I always thought it was too shallow and swampy. How deep is the water in there, and what were ya usin?

Thanks,
Jim

Ice Hole

It gets to about 4-5 or so feet in the middle...fish around the vegation on the north side and middle of the swamp by the lilly pad roots and stumps ...its deeper there. I was usin a bobber and worms...the water is stained like coffee, so I would be willing to bet white twister tails would get em good too. I tried minnows and ended up with nice crappies and some larger sunnies. If you go back there let me know how ya do and what the water lvl is like. wink.gif [email protected] ...I have a cabin 5 minutes from that spot if you want to hit it up sometime.

      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!
