I know what you mean I've been hitting the ice the past week before school starts. Having luck on Washington's 3rd point but putting in work to find them. Could use some company out there.

I'm a MSU student and I have been fishing hard since ice up. Only problem is it's been around Mille Lacs area. Bringing all my gear back to school with me and plan on fishing so we should all meet up and head out and catch some fish.

You guy's should try out Crystal or Loon Lakes. The action has been pretty hot for Walleye's. Alot of smaller ones but you can get a few eater size, and there is always that chance to get a BIG one. Not much during the day, right around 4-4:30 p.m. till ??? Check out the link for what a friend and I caught last week.

Raptor---Thanks for the info....just a few questions. About where on Crystal and Loon were they biting and about what depth? Well thanks again and maybe I'll see you out there. Also are they driving out on the local lakes at all? I'll be driving an 04' Grey Silverado with a Browning and Foiles sticker in the rear window. Taker easy and good luck.

They are driving all over Crystal and Loon. We caught most of them around the cemetery points on Crystal and a few in that back bay by the creek that goes to Mills. 6" to 1' off the bottom with a jig and fathead in 5'-6' of water. Heard rumors of 3-4 pounders around the aerators on Crystal but haven't gotten into any of those, yet!

Browning how did washington go? I was a little overwhelmed by the people out there this morning so I scooted over to a little lake that supposedly has some nice crappies. All I could muster was about fifty seven inchers and when I started catching bullheads it was time to leave. Went to Eagle Lk. for evening and got one small eye. We should meet up and try to ice some fish this week.

Gustafson---My buddy and I did pretty good on Washington....caught our limit of good gills. Nothing huge...probably 3 to a pound. Caught a few smaller crappies but mostly focused on gills. It was a crowd out there but got away from them a ways and did pretty well. Well I have class on Weds. nights but thursday I am open in the morning and evenings just have class in the afternoon. Well post again or give me an email if you want to meet up. My email is c h a d r a t 8 3 @ h o t m a i l . c o m

      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 😏
    • Rick
      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?
    • Mitch K
      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.
    • LoonASea
      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!!!
    • mrpike1973
      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.
