Hey,

I am taking it that you are from the mankato area?? i am from around owatonna, and i attend MSUM. I was looking to go out as well but you dont get very well responses on here. Anyways if you wanna go out some time i would go but i think it might be a trial thing because there isnt much for information on lakes on this particular forum. Anyways if you want a fishing buddy or somthing find me. Kelly Markham

Head out on hwy 10 to Lake park and head south....20 different lakes to choose from.....hop on minnesota dnr web page they'll give all the information and even maps of all these lakes.....like any fishing lake trial and error is the way to find fish they don't stay in the same spot long.....any of the cormorants, pelican, and even leif for panfish would work for you. Stop at one of the bait shops and they can give you up to date reports and tell you where there is good ice and bad ice......Have fun and of all things be careful!!

Stay at school and chase tail. The fish aren't biting and the ice sucks, but this advice would be good for any fishing conditions. Maybe give it a shot during finals, that's a nice time to be away from college.

I don't know where this guy is fishing but I have a freezer full of walleyes and Crappies. I am also a college student in the Fargo Moorhead area. You best bet is to head around the Lake Park area and do some exploring. Good luck, you will find fish!

I'll throw out a couple lakes, Pelican, Big cormerant and little C. Now if you want to catch some pike on tip ups i would probably hit Little C, people were doing decent earlier in the year but we haven't been out there lately, you might even see our spear house, its hard to miss, its Orange. Good luck guys

Hey everyone.

I havent fished around here becuase i dont have a house. I have everything else though. An auger, Vexilar, poles (no tip-ups) and a seat. But seeing its usually so cold up here i need a place to escape from the wind. if anyone is looking for a fishing partner ANY TIME OF THE WEEK weekends, week days, week nights (pending homework) I am willing to go all the time, fish till dawn as well. Drop me a line asap. [email protected]

Jiggin you should invest in a tip up. They don't cost much and you can cover more water. Depending on the weather next weekend I'm going to head home and be willing to look for some fishing partners. I'd hope to be out and set up fishing by noon and probable wouldn't be coming off till about 2 hrs after dark. If anyone is interested drop me a line [email protected] and i'll give more details in what I'm planning on doing.

Well, I'll be honest, I think ice fishing has been quite good this year. I usually am a Devils Lake guy and will not even touch the MN lakes, but it has been good this ice fishing season so far. My buddy and I have stayed in Pelican this winter pretty exclusively and have done well in the hours from dusk to about 2 to 3 hours past dusk. Also, we went to lake Jewett a week ago and did great on nice 8 to 11 inch Perch and a nice 34 inch northern on a smelt...

Also, as far as the ice conditions are concerned, we went out to Pleican last week and the ice conditions are substantially better than they were a week prior to that. We easily drove the truck out there to our spot by the end of the night last week... The reprots of bad ice right now are huey if you ask me...

FInd structure and fish it at the right time and that is the ticket! - At least that has been the ticket for my buddy and I this year...

      Funny, my wife and I drove by Big Rice on our way to Grand Rapids. I pointed to the launch and said, somewhere there's an old rotting couch in there, two clowns 🤡🤡 on the forum keep joking each other about pissing on. She said gross! Cuz that's what guys talk about on forums! 😆😅🤣

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.
    • delcecchi
      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.
