Been there the last couple of weekends,
but working, not fishing. Lots of people shore fishing, from what I saw the fish they were catching were small.

We were there Tuesday afternoon/evening. Lots of people fishing, the south launch are was full of vehicles, 15 people or so fishing near the bridge. We caught a few crappies, mostly small and a couple small bass mixed in. It was pretty chilly. Water temp in the upper 40's to 50 degrees in the shallows.

Fished some Sat. 5/8 and Sun. 5/9,
not much happening. Lake level is low and water temp. is cold. Need some rain and warm weather for fishing to improve. Will be fishing Knife on opening weekend, I'll post results.

Wavey,
Will you be targeting 'eyes on opener...? I have fished Knife for opener the past couple of years and for me the eye fishing has gone steadily down hill, just my experience, just was curious if it was the same for you... Good luck!

Ya, I will be fishing walleyes. Usually do better a couple of weeks from now. On opener I'll be fishing the low-light times to increase my chances. Dawn, dusk and at night.
Good luck to all.

The crappies usually go in really shallow around opener. last year we said forget the walleyes and cought are limit on crappies to days in a row

Opener on Knife was kinda slow as I thought it would be. Water needs to warm up for the fish to be more active. Ended up with 4 walleyes worth keeping, about 14". Most were small, around 10". Released a couple northerns, 1 was 26". That's my report, done better, done worse...

Hi,
I'm new to "fishing minnesota" and we are going camping to Knife Lake this weekend. We have never fished it before and are wondering where some good eye spots are? Also if there are better crappie reports we would be happy to pan fish too.

Welcome Utah,
This is one of the few places you'll hear about Knife Lake. You must be camping at the Crow's Nest. I fish Knife almost every weekend, have for years. Not going to give out my "Honey Holes". The advice I will give you is to fish at dusk for your best luck. An hour before sunset and an hour or so after. You'll find it slow during the day.
Good luck.

Wavey,
I'll get back to you and let you know how we do....it's our first time staying at Crows Nest. Let's hope for decent weather!

Brothers have cabins on the lake. We caught 16 walleyes off the dock in 4ft of water. dusk to 10:30 pm. Crappies still deep. Sunnies shallow if you can find them. water temp. 54-56 degrees. Very clear for this lake. Still a little too cold.
I'm in a brown Smokercraft. Be back up for Memorial weekend. GL All.

Hey Wavey and Scoop,
We camped at Crows Nest on Friday and Saturday night. The weather was not to bad until Sunday morning when we packed it up! A bit on the cool side but the water temp. is on the way up, 58-60 degrees. For our first time fishing at Knife we were happy with our results. We kept 4 nice eyes and a BIG sunny. Threw back 2 and missed a few.
Up to the big hole on Memorial weekend.
