Neighbor has been getting Pike on tip-ups out there, over now of course. Driving out in his Ram 1500 with no worries. Many vehicles on Fannie and Skogman in the last week or so. I have been doing okay on Crappies, but are mostly smaller in size. Have not been out in a week. Post if you have any luck or get out.

I have been in 28 fow, 6-8 ft of the bottom. Using Crappie minnows, seems the smaller, the better. Was on Skogman, by the way....(Keep in mind, this is a couple of weeks ago now)

I was out on Fannie sat. morning. Picked up a few sunnies along with 3 crappies and a couple of bass.

I was parked off the hwy 95 boat launch. When I came off the lake my buddy and I noticed that someone backed into my boat trailer. Broke off the left side tail light, with some light damage to the trailer. Total HIT AND RUN !!!

Lucky that I live close to Fannie lake, driving home with one tail light.

As of 1-21-07, 13 inches of ice (fairly consistant).

Fished from 4-9PM and was better than limit with some sorting. Not big fish, but barely okay. Lake had some traffic, but not too bad.

Vehicles are driving out. I wouldn't, but some are.

Hey,

I've been wanting to do some tip-up fishing on Fannie for Northern. Anyone know of any good places for this?

Thanks..........

Go straight out from the swimming beach access to the point. There is a pretty good weed line there. My son pulled a 6 lb through the hole yesterday.

Good Luck!!

Sounds good - I think I know that weed line. There's usually a few houses sitting there I think. What kind of bait were you using for the northern. I guess I was thinking some shiners should work. Thanks!

Tyrone01 It is in a group of 4 or 5 houses just northwest of the grass islands at the south end ,the fishhouse is light brown with green trim and a barn style roof. Where is your house?I was out last night with my 12 year old from 4:30 TO 7:00 we got 18 crops and 2 gills most were small. The crappies don't seem to grow very fast in fannie.

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