Northern, Walleye, Crappies, Sunnies~Dates to Remember


Recommended Posts

Just a reminder of a couple of dates regarding fishing.

This is the last weekend for keeping walleyes and northerns..the season this year ends on February 16.

Don't forget that our fishing licenses are up the end of this month..the last day is February 28th, so in a couple of weekends before you head to the lake(s) be sure to get your new license.

As most folks know, the limit for crappies and sunnies will also be changing. This doesn't happen until MAY 10 (which is fishing opener). So until then you can keep 15 crappies and 30 sunnies (and the area lakes have some nice ones in them!), but Crappie will go to 10, sunfish from 30 to 20, and lake trout from three to two. (Catfish also had a change: the daily and possession limit for catfish will remain at five, but only one over 24 inches and two flathead catfish will be allowed in the total limit.)

One other date to keep in mind is the Upper Red Lake Crappie Contest scheduled for March 1st from noon to 3. Tickets are $20 (kids 12 and under $5). Over $40,000 in prizes, including the largest crappie is $500 & a Natures Mount Image. Second through 5th place receive cash. All adult participants are entered for an Artic Cat 300 ATV, plus door prizes, kids prizes and more (Strikemaster ice augers, Vexilar depth finds, fishing equipment and more. That's March 1st so be sure to have your 2003 fishing license!

We just got a case of the new 2003 Fishing Regulations books in, and another change noted is that they have eliminated the Senior Fishing License, so those of you 65 and older will now have to buy a regular license.

If your in the area and are wanting to pick up the new Reg book, stop on in and introduce yourself and pick up a copy! You can take a look at the "wall of fame" as folks have named it, which show pictures of our guests with their fish they have caught, and if your looking for some Angel Eye Jrs, Glow Devils or Fat Frys you can get them here too.

For those of you who are lucky enough to have a three day weekend and are able to spend some time on the lakes please post on here how you do..or maybe we'll see you on the ice!

      You could do Isanti to St. Francis also.  About mid way is Anderson Park that has a small sandy access.  Anderson Park to St. Francis had fewer but some bigger fish while Isanti to Anderson Park had better numbers and not as many big fish.   All upstream from Isanti to the access on Hwy 95 can be hit or miss but if you hit it, it can be good.   Up to 16’s is fairly common bit there are enough 16-20’s to not be shocked if you get one or more.   I’d never admit to this while I lived there. 😉

      Some pressure but nothing like lake fishing

      Hey thanks guys, I appreciate your input. It sounds like this float might be best to put off a year when the water is up a little higher. I'll check the gage next summer and see how it looks. I was hoping to get into some 18 to 20" fish (aren't we all), so maybe they will have moved back in there by then.   Does the stretch south of St. Francis get very much pressure on it? I'll have to give it a look.

      Little more narrow up there, if I were to do it, I'd float St Francis to Andover. Shallow yes but it's a good stretch to fish

      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.

      Lol he broke a muskie drought that had started in 2006.  16 years without a legal muskie!

      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.

      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
