i was out on clear again, you didn't miss much. Me on the other hand I miss everything, I had a terrible day shooting. Only saw 3 ducks that came over the lake and all 3 came right to my spread and 9 shells later live to see another day! Saw a couple of flocks flying south of the southern shore! hopefully tomorrow will be another day!

I know the feeling delta, last saterday we shot like crap, got two shovlers, but that was out of a flock of 8 that came in, missed a group of mallards early, and then missed 2 seperate woodies, O well, I'll be back at it next weekend I think.

well hopefully it will be picking up here pretty soon. Was up north of brinerd deer hunting this weekend. my brother duck hunted wensday mornings and thrusday night and limited out in about 15 minutes. Friday I went with him we both limited out on blue bills and ring necks. Seen a TON of mallards but nothing would come in. So hopefully things pick up here. ( in case you didn't know I'm the kid with the green ranger that has been hunting out there a few times. I'll have to say high next time)

nope, I was heading to a job site! I never take the boat out of my truck, just in case I get off work early or whatever so that all I have to grab is my cloths and a gun and go!

Yep, it was really slow this morning! will be out there again tomorrow, I think I'm going to set up on the south east side of the point. Just because only using a trolling motor and with the winds going to be so strong tonight and tomorrow, it would get ugly!

2 drake mallards, redhead, and a couple megansers, between me and my brother-in-law! Should have had two limits, but I just got my new Nova yesterday and was quite in my comfort zone yet with it and my bro-in-law lost his bead on his gone and was haveing trouble lining up! birds were really touchy today, probably because they could just sit there and just hover over the spread for quite a long time!

Hey rat, you going to be out hunting this weekend? Just when out to the lake and it is open. It looked like there was some ducks out there but I didn't bring my binocs along so I couldn't get a close look!

I was there also yesterday and saw it was open. So I went out there this morning and there was already almost an inch of ice out there. And with the cold temps it'll even be more this weekend. Wish I could get out somemore but I don't have a field to hunt. Guess It's time to hang the gear up for the year.

Yeah, I stopped out there this afternoon and saw it was froze over again. Instead me and a couple of other guys are going to hunt a field about a half mile from clear. Hopefully we see something!

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!

      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.

      got mine done........for the cabin.....ready for summer festivities!!!!!!   there was still frost in the ground...........but good gawd are the lakes low!!!!!
    • CigarGuy
      Just 1, 50" muskie🫣

      How many walleye were on the stringer on their way out??? 
    • CigarGuy
      Saw the first boat of the year yesterday, heading towards Black Bay

      All of the webcams appear to be ice-free except for shore ice. It looks like you could navigate most of the way on Vermilion at this point. Happy boating everyone.

      I'm the same on honey do lists. I seem to feel better doing my list than my wife's list, even though they my be similar.
