Has anyone been out on Clearwater lately, and how warm are the water temps. Have the crappies moved in shallow yet? Am looking at going out the first week in May. Also when is the crappies tournament this year, will try and avoid going out that day.

BJ's contest is May 8th. I would hope that some of those that enter it follow tthe rules of the contest. i have witnessed quite a few of those who enter it break a number of rules to the point i am thinking of volunteering to be one of the workers for the contest.During last years contest there was 1 boat parked in the middle of the trailer parks harbor. when the docks are in there is NOT ENOUGH ROOM to get past.Figure it out boys,, 1 18foot boat in the middle,docks in from both sides = another 50 feet.. the Rule States, you cant be with in 20 feet of another boat or dock.The harbor is only 100 feet wide so that leaves about 15 feet betwwen the docks and a boat anchored sideways in the harbor.


Yes the fish have been biting on all the lakes including clearwater

Been wondering the same.. Thinking about hitting another lake Saturday morning and then getting a nap and hitting Clearwater all evening and night on Saturday. How is the bite? Are there still any crappies in shallow?

Last weekend the crappies were in pre-spawn areas, out of the shallows. Walleyes were in deeper water, avoiding the light. Have at it.

How deep is deep for the walleyes? 15'-20', 20'-25' or 25'- 30'.

Thanks for the info!!!!!

Deep is relative. Early morning this time of year they will be shallow, 10'-15'. Later in the day down to 20'+, all depending on the spot, bottom, weeds, etc. If the water is clear you can see them down there and they can see you looking at them.

      I fished it further south near Milaca/Princeton a couple times in late July.  It was OK then but dropping.  The second time we definitely bumped more rocks and grounded out in a couple riffles.  I use a 10 foot jon boat that can float through a couple inches of water.  We caught 15-20 smallmouth both times, but nothing over 16 inches.  I think the drought last year sent the bigger fish out of there.  It may take a few years to recover.   You can check the flow on the DNR website.  There is a live gauge right in Onamia.  Anything below 11 feet is too low for me.   https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/waters/csg/site.html?id=21018002

      Water is really low. It’s definitely doable, but there will be a lot of spots you’ll have to get out and pull. Fallen trees in low water might be your biggest obstacle. Should be plenty of smallies to catch. They’ll be concentrated in any deep pools you come across.

      Well you're are! 😆 Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous.

      Not too long ago, I found synthesis paper topics here. I may be exaggerating, but this is one of the best topic ideas sites I have found in the last few years.
    • Caleb9
      Satirical essays employ humor, hyperbole, irony and irony to poke fun at a subject. These essays are often directed at celebrities, politicians and current events. Although satirical essays are intended to entertain, the writer of satire often seeks out useful, relevant, and eye-opening information. You can learn how to write satirically by understanding the styles and purpose of your content.   Step 1 Pick a topic. You should choose the  satirical essay topics that is absurd or ironic. Your goal is to make your subject absurd, much like a caricature artist who exaggerates his subject's facial features. To get ideas, you might look at political cartoons in Sunday's paper.   Step 2 Hyperbole can be used to prove your point. Hyperbole can be used to exaggerate facts. However, it does not mean lying. It is important to keep to the facts but to use hyperbole to emphasize the absurdity of them. One example of this might be "Andy Garbo consumes a lot of coffee each year to keep his Folgers stock profitable." Although this is obviously hyperbole, it's meant to convey an exaggerated point regarding Andy.   Step 3 To present your ideas, use irony. Irony refers to the use of words and phrases to express something that is not what you really mean or an incongruity between what the person expects and actually happens. Irony can be expressed as "He's kind enough steal from the poor to help his pocketbook." This becomes ironic when the word "kind enough" is used. Because of its sarcastic tone, irony makes a great tool for satirical essays.   Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous. While not all satire can be funny, pointing out the absurdities of your topic can help you to get people to think differently or make your point faster. Humor is a great way to get people to respond quicker, especially if you make them see the absurdity in the same way as you.   Learn more at: https://proessays.net/blog/40-witty-topics-for-a-satirical-essay

      Has anyone fished the Rum River between Onamia and the Wayside landing around this time of year before? I'm looking to take a trip with the kayak over labor day, but wanted to make that stretch would be deep enough to float (I'm ok with occasionally dragging the kayak, but I don't want to take my girlfriend on a 9 mile hike in ankle deep water), and that there'd be a realistic chance to hook into some good smallies. I will be doing strictly catch and release, I just want to get out and have some topwater fun. I had heard from some that the stretch of river in question may be better in June, so I wasn't for sure.    If that stretch of river is no good, is there another that you'd recommend?   I appreciate any help.

      On the south end...  Walleye fishing has been good all summer and is still strong.  Lots of limits of walleyes along with some big fish being caught.  Lake levels continue to drop thankfully.  Boat ramps are open and charters / guides continue to be on fish. Drifting spinners still producing.  Hammered gold, pink, orange, glow white, glow red or a combo of some of these colors working well.  Usually a two or three hook harness with just a few inches of crawler off of the back hook.  Good success jigging for walleyes.  This technique usually slows down in August, but this year it is still working great.  Using a frozen emerald shiner is the go to. Big walleyes being found, as a rule, over deep mud.  Jigging, spinners and crankbaits are all catching the big fish.   Nice eaters still set up in 15-20' outside both gaps on the south end of the lake as well as numerous areas of Big Traverse Bay.   Lots of anglers running north if conditions allow.   On the Rainy River...   Some good walleye, sturgeon and smallmouth bass reports from the Rainy River.  Water levels continue to drop.   Shoreline breaks, current breaks, weed edges and holes holding a mixed bag. Sturgeon anglers are reporting good numbers of fish.  Putting in a couple of days normally results in some success.  Holes and flats or saddles just off of the current good areas to look at. Up at the NW Angle...  Lots of walleyes along with a mixed bag is the norm.  Some anglers fishing MN waters, others boating into Ontario waters from the Angle and fishing there.  Good reports across the board. Angle resorts are located in MN right on the border.  Checking in with Canada Customs and being vaccinated is not needed if boating from the U.S. to Canada and not touching land, docks, anchoring, mooring or exchanging goods or services.   Little Traverse Bay (large open water east of Little Oak Island) still holding good numbers of walleyes over deep mud. Typical summer spots are producing.  Sunken islands, neck down areas with moving water and points.  With 14,552 islands, lots of places to fish. Muskie anglers reporting fish have been active with good numbers being caught. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air (fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      I have been out four times this season since mid July.  I caught some smaller ones the first couple trips, but Saturday I finally got into some larger fish with my Father.  The bigger ones are tiger muskies in the mid 30 inch range.  I had another one on that made these look small.  We got a good look at it when it surfaced and spit the hook with a head shake.  Appeared to be 45+ inches, which is enormous for a hybrid.
