Has anybody been out to any of the reefs on sleds? Wondering how the conditions were way out there. Four of us planning to head north fishing as we go ending up at the angle in a few weeks. With the snow up there I get a little nervous about slush. That wouldn't be good getting stuck ten miles from nowhere. Is there a marked trail from long point yet?

rkelly: You may want to consider checking on the bomber trail that Sporsman's has to there other resort on Oak Island. They keep it open to shuttle people out there to avoid the trip around thru Warroad and Sprag.. Little longer than from Long Point, but it is well traveled by their new Bombers with radios... Kaz

Thanks for the reply Kaz. Does this trail go over Pine and straight north and do they have it marked? If so it must go pretty close to knight and Bridges.

rkelly: It would have to go over Pine because I don't think they would go through the Gap with the current there. I'd check with Sportsman's and see. I guess I shouldn't give the advise because I'm down south where it's warm. I have a place at Wheelers, spending a lot of open water up there and know most of the drivers from Sportsman's. I do know that they bought a couple of new big black bombers last year just for the shuttle service though. It should be marked and well traveled too... and go right by Knight and Bridges as they are in line from point A to point B. They may even go behind some of the islands too. Maybe someone one this site has used it this year and has the exact scoop..Kaz

Your advice on traveling this trail makes alot of sense to me. We were talking about leaving from long point but it would be all virgin riding. I get a little nervous, like I said, about running into problems (like slush). A trail like that would be pretty safe I would think. I would like to spend some time off of Garden as well as knight and bridges. This would be a first for me so I'm just trying to get some ideas...I've never fished the angle in the winter,and I've never fished the south in the summer. Maybe I'll swap this year. Thanks again

I ran the trail last spring and you do go within a few miles of Knights/Bridges. As long as you know where to look you should figure them out.

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      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.
