Hey everyone, The march bite finally is here. I was out to winnie on thursday night for crappies and caught alot of 1/2 pounders. And kept 9 one pound crappies. The crappies were really biting though. Then Friday I fished winnie again and caught a lot of perch that were 9 - 12".
Saturday was a hot day for blackduck lake. I limited out on perch that were 9 - 12". They were very nice and the bite was really good. I also got a 13" crappie and missed a bigger one too. That is usually how it goes huh?
Saturday night I went to red with my dad and all the crappies we caught were 12 - 13". The crappies were really biting for us saturday night. Both of us with a limit. We didn't have any smaller ones than that. We also went out of West winds.
Great weekend for fishing.
Some people are wondering about the ice. The ice was really good last weekend with not too much snow cover anymore. There is a few drifts but nothing to worry about.

You had a GREAT fishing weekend! Glad you stopped by here Saturday when you got off Blackduck..those were some nice perch and the crappie was an added bonus! We have been told by many people that there are some 1 and 2 pound crappies in Blackduck, you just have to work for them. We had some guys here earlier in the week that had gotten some really nice perch on Winnie also!

We made it out to Upper Red last night with another couple. We didn't limit out but we got some really nice crappies. And the guys about 50 feet away from us were really onto them!

The bite started around 5 and was pretty steady for awhile. We decided around 8:30/9 to call it a night since the bite for us had stopped, but wouldn't you know it, as we were packing up the other couple we were with and the other guy near us started getting bites again!

Talked to a couple tonight who just came in from Lake of the Woods and they had pretty good luck up there...the March bite is kickin' in smile.gif

hey JFREAK, I always fish in Macavity bay on Winnie. Last weekend I fished it and caught a lot of 1/2 pound fish. I threw most of them back. But got a few nice ones too. Macavity bay has a sharp drop off and I was fishing in 33 feet of water. Morning bite was the best for me. There are also a lot of humps and bumps in the narrows that hold more and bigger crappies too. These spots are just harder to find.
Good luck,

Not sure exactly where Macavity Bay is, but got good reports from Winni this morning on the north side of the lake in about 40 feet of water. Perch was the main catch, but a couple of nice crappies were an added bonus.

      Work has pretty much kept me from fishing since late May😕 Did have the chance to hit the water for a few hours yesterday. I opted to hit the river for some smallie action with my limited time. The Sippi didn't disappoint, the brown bass had the feed bag on big time!. I hooked over 30 fish in 3 hrs, most being 15-17inchers with a few bigger and a few smaller mixed in.   Weightless stick baits rigged on a 1/0  is all I needed to throw.

      Hi all - new to the forum.  I live in NE Wyoming and am an avid fly fisherman.  While I love fishing for trout out west, warm water species on the fly is a blast.   Me and a buddy are headed out this coming weekend for a BWCA trip.  We have a couple of days on the front end of the trip to fish.  I'm planning on towing my drift boat from NE Wyoming and have spot picked out in North Dakota to float for smallies on the fly.  I'm looking at trying to get an additional float in somewhat near Ely before our entry into the Boundary Waters.  It's a 16' drift boat and doesn't really draft much.  I'm planning on having a small trolling motor just in case I need some additional power.  Looking mainly to target smallmouth and pike.   I've looked at a few areas to float, but wanted some advice.  I have a few options that I think meet what I'm looking for:   1) St. Louis River near Hoyt Lakes.  Looked like there are couple of access points to launch and take out below Hwy 110 2) Cloquet River - Hwy 7 to the mouth. 3) Bigfork River - From Ivan Crawford to Reedy Flats   Can anyone provide any advice these or provide any other recommendations?   Thanks in advance!

      I have been doing pretty good bass fishing locally.  A lot of numbers, but lacking in really big quality fish that I have caught the last two seasons.  Biggest I could catch this season so far is 18 inches.

      Welcome to the forum. Downriggers work best for suspended fish in deep water. Most river's are shallow and rocky. If you want to fish the bottom in a river a bottom bouncer might be best to not lose a lot of expensive gear. Imo. Good luck.

      I have a Cannon Optima and Iam anxious to try downriggers for walleye.  There is a bottom tracking feature on Optima.  I think most walleyes are close to bottom so I think it is a good tactic.  I am, however, nervous about using Fishhawk XD4 with on river.  A screwup would really be expensive!

      i'm not real involved yet. my first meeting. long story but my parents belonged to it years ago. after the cabin lake had the 2 consecutive years of severe winterkill i dogged the heck out of the fisheries people in grand rapids.🤭 i found out through the watershed assoc they talked them into restocking sunfish and bass into the lake. they did that this past june. so i figured for the 15 bucks join!!!!!   my next battle is with the township......🤣 trying to get them to grade part of our road going into the cabin!!!!! i already sent the letter but havent heard from them yet. since i've retired from being a union thug.......i gotta pick a few battles to keep my skills sharp!!!!!!!!🤪🤭👍

      That's awesome that you are involved in that! I hope you have a good trip up!
    • smurfy
      I'm heading up sometime the last week in Aug . I joined the Jessie lake watershed assoc and they have a meeting on the 27 I want to attend.

      Definitely in the dog days of summer. Catching a few walleye here and there on the river. Hasn't been too hot which makes me hopeful for an early fall fishing season. I'll post more when the fish turn their feed bags on and the leaves start falling. Until then I'll just work more and get winter gear ready
