It's been pretty quiet in here lately on the fishing reports! Did the snow slow everyone down? smirk.gif

Work "got in the way" again for me, but I think I'll have to get out next weekend. Anyone know if much snow has accumulated on the ice, or did it all just blow right over onto shore?

Iam all geared up for summer fishing,eyes and pannies. smile.gifAlso cannot wait to go to the Sturgeon fishing get-together in a month.Ive been planning on going eye fishing on the river the last week and a half,but the weather isnt helping. frown.gifPRETTY soon we will be doing 5 days a week of fishing. smile.gifsmile.gifI feel like im going through withdrawel.

The panfish should start going wild and the lakes still have to be O.K. for walking.If I dont get out in the boat on the river shortly,you know what slab of ice I will be back out on.Said I was done,maybe not.

Yeah, I just fried up my last crappie last night for dinner (yummy). Lent time "forces" me to get some more fishing in! tongue.gifgrin.gif

Here's something I've wondered, and this is for anybody who might know....is there open water at the narrows on Washington? I've been thinking/wondering if a guy could put on his chest waders, carry a pole and jig box, walk across the ice and get to the narrows and wade out a bit to cast in the open water for crappies & sunnies, whenever it does open up. Or, is it so crammed with geese that the fish wouldn't hold in there, or don't they hold in there at all?? Just a thought I guess.

There is a little road that will take you to the point by the narrows.No need to walk across ther ice.

The last time I was on the lake the narrows was open somewhat and yes,the geese were in there.I would think that with a little more warm weather your plan would work.

I didn't know that! Is there a public parking area at the end of that road or something?

I was just thinking the same thing.

Trips up north to Mille Lacs and Upper Red got in the way for me. smirk.gif

Ive seen it from the lake in the boat.I believe if you are going towards the north landing from the park,it is just a bit b-4 the north landing.I dont know the name of it.I believe you can walk right out to that point.Pretty sure

There is about 6" of snow on the lake. I had a ball this morning. I got to try out my new sweet heart and a new legend rods. The sweet heart I dropped down first and had a nice sunfish right away.I was surprized how nice the rod felt and could feel the little ticks of the fish hitting. I don't why I waited so long to get one after people say how great they are, might be the german in me I guess. Guys don't put your stuff away yet the best is yet to come. grin.gif

Thanks Harvey Lee. I may have to take a look into that and consider giving it a try.

      Dang, pulled the battery and put her in storage just last week or that sounds like fun. With all this wet weather it has really put me behind on getting all the fall chores done before hunting season and the winter hits and I need get the sled and ice stuff ready.  I had breakfast at Our Place just this morning coming down from Ely and was thinking of all the rides I have done in that area the last few years.  Lets try to set up a ride-trout outing next spring. 🙂

      Fishing Friday and Saturday was a dramatic shift. Seems the west wind got them going. Found a reef on Friday that was loaded up with fish and they were hungry. Fished it for a few hours before losing the battle to the cold. 3 pig smallies up top in 18-20 feet, 3 keeper walleyes between 16-18" and one 25" on the sides of the reef to the transition in 24-30 feet, and 2 jumbos off the transition in the mud at 32 feet. Also lost a BIG fish--the kind that your heart sinks when it comes off the line.    Saturday was more of the same. Biting a little lighter but we managed 6 walleyes from 15-19" in between the rain and getting blown off the lake. Could've easily limited if not for some "miscues"   Did try a little bit of trolling close to dark but only picked up a small muskie. Lots of guys out trolling all weekend but I'm not sure if they were going for walleyes or muskies. Interested to know if anyone on here was one of those guys and will give a report.    Wish I was starting my trip now instead of sitting at home. I think this is going to be a phenomenal week of fishing now that the weather is going to stabilize and warm up. Best of luck to everyone the rest of the year and stay safe. Saw some of the biggest waves I've seen on vermilion with the wind last week. Can get hairy pretty quickly out there

      We saw some late birds today also in west central MN.  The beans looked horrible and most corn was still in.  In 2 hours of driving I only saw three corn fields being combined each way.   We saw birds and got some roosters.  About 30% mature to 70% juveniles, not counting those late birds that didn’t fly well.  Birds seemed really jumpy today - odd for opener.  Flushing wild like late season.   Man, my pheasant legs ain’t what they used ta be! 😨

      I was wondering if raps at 2 mph would work now. Will the fish still chase them down when the water temps are in the low 40s?

      Thanks for the water temps. Unfortunately my depth finder temp gauge was correct.
