Spirit Island....

Recommended Posts


I was just wondering if anyone has any idea if it is safe to venture out as far as spirit island yet? (south side of lake)
Me and some friends are going up Friday and going to fish many different areas of the lake. Am curious about ice conditions in that area and maybe if anyone knows how the perch biting.
Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.
Be up from Friday to Monday. Se ya out there.

There was 8-10" all the way out and around Spirit, not much action out that way, but I wouldn't be suprised if there is a good night bite going out there.

I would be shocked if you find ice less than 6-8" anywhere on the lake. But check for youself.

Hey grabs.
Thanks for the input. We will be heading up some time tommorow or saturday morning and was wondering if you have heard of and areas that are doing well with the perch action or walleye. I talked to one of my friends briefly and he told me that the perch fisherman were doing extremely well. We chated just for a few minutes, but he neglected to inform me on when this was. Could you possibly point me in the direction of any of this action. We would really appreciate this. If you ahve any spots I would be willing to maybe trade off some cordinates for some areas of where we had great walleye fishing in the past expierences for some perchin' spots.
Feel free to email me at stu2520@excite.com
thanks jeff.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
