I have the week off because of spring break, and would love to get out fishing. (Its good to be a teacher sometimes) I however don't have a boat. So if anyone has any shore fishing ideas or think that they might get a little lonely in their boat, Let me know! Maybe some sucker fishing? Too early?

Crickshop, I am in the same situation. Week off for spring break, but no boat. If anyone could offer any shore fishing endeavors I would be more than happy to team up with you for an outing or two.

There are all sorts of shore fishing ops at Red Wing and Alma. I'd do Alma though. Right at the end of the lock wall there is an indent that creates a nice resting place for waldos and sauger. Some snags there with the rip rap but they catch fish there pretty regular. And off the bank at the boat landing in town we see people fish as well and I have seen some decent stringers come up the little hill too.

Crickshop, shoot me an email and we will set up an outing or two for next week. Later in the week works better for me.

Rugby- Not sure that I'm going to have much time to get out. My list is pretty long! If it doesn't work out for this time we'll have to try and get out for some sucker fishing.

      This terminal could have been comprised, cracked or corroded to cause this.

      Geese are beginning to flock as I seen a number flying over the past couple days.

      Our last trip last year required driving through a snow storm! But that time of year is special!

      Will fish around Paynesville, Cass Lake and maybe Osakis.  I generally fish right up to freeze up/firearms deer season in the boat.

      Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge

      I am spending Labor Day week on Kabetogama with my wife. Never been to Kab before so I am looking forward to hopefully figuring out a new lake with good multi-species potential. Any tips from anybody would be appreciated. After that it will be the anticipation of late October and Rainy River! That is probably my favorite trip of the year.

      A project to improve long-term water quality and wildlife habitat on Pelican Lake in Wright County may cause some short-term inconvenience for waterfowl hunters this fall, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  The public water access managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on the west side of Pelican Lake will not be usable for boats larger than a canoe or kayak, due to lower water levels created by a drawdown of the lake. While boats may be launched from the state-managed public water access on the southwest side of the lake, parking there is limited. Parking is not allowed within the immediate ramp area; it also is prohibited along the shoulders of 40th Street Northeast, the adjacent road. The DNR is in the process of designing and constructing a new public boat access on the northwest corner of Pelican Lake.  The project will be started in the fall, but likely will not be completed this year. Some private lake access may be available by arrangement with local landowners; contact DNR area wildlife manager Fred Bengtson for more information: 320-223-7840. Pelican Lake is in the middle of a multi-year drawdown aimed at improving water quality and creating better habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife. Once considered a waterfowl mecca, slowly rising water levels over some 30 years had killed much of the aquatic vegetation that stabilizes shoreline and provides needed food for migrating ducks. With help from Ducks Unlimited and constitutionally dedicated money from the Legacy Fund, an outlet was created for the lake in 2014 to lower water levels in several stages, with a pumping facility added in 2016. The drawdown will allow soils to consolidate and promote the growth of aquatic vegetation needed by ducks for food and habitat. In addition to providing critical waterfowl habitat, the project also will result in significantly cleaner water. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
