Hey guys. Just wondering about fishing these two lakes for Walleye. Anyone fish them and could give me some hindsight on them? Would appreciate it very much. Thanks, Junk.....

Junk,

I wish I had some information on Sturgeon, but all I can tell you is it's a good bass lake in the summer. That's the only time I've fished it. From the DNR survey, it looks as if there are decent numbers of walleye.

Can anyone lend a hand here?

Hit both lakes this past weekend (12/21-12/22). About 12" of ice on both lakes, they're starting to drive.....but not me! Did poorly on Sturgeon Lake (1 perch). We went in at 7PM and stopped to talk to a local on the way out and he said that's when the bite starts! OH WELL! Fished Island Sunday morning and caught 2 little walleyes and 5 or 6 small perch. Fished near the public access on both lakes.

I fished Island on monday morning. we caught one little walleye and a bunch of little perch. we fished right near the public access. there was a good 14" of ice. we drove out a little ways from the access but did not go far. I would appreciate any more reports or tips for Island.

We have a cabin in Willow River, and my dad just called with a report from up there. Guys have been hitting the eyes on Sturgeon in the morning, wish I knew where and in what depth but thats all I got. He is trying to nail down a couple spots and I am going to head up there with him on Thursday. I'll let you know how we do.

Was out on Sturgeon yesterday, tough day on the ice. First off we were in the wrong spot on the lake, and didn't know until the sun came up. After we saw where we were supposed to be and moved it was about 8am. After that we got two small pike and three nice walleye strikes but none on the ice. Going to try and get out this weekend at least one day. Good luck.

Well we were out on Sturgeon this past weekend, with mild success. Thurs. night caught two nice eyes, one was 19 one was 15 1/2, missing a couple more. Friday Morning caught two more and one pike. Perch came in thick around 9am. Overall it was a good weekend, ecspecially in the Red Oak Fri. night! Night bite was definetley better! Fishing just west of the "island" straight out from the access.

Been hearing of people catching nice walleyes and northerns on Sturgeon right in front of YMCA camp Miller. As for Island the crappie bite has been extremely slow.

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
