I have been coming to Red Lake for the past 5 years and have enjoyed the information that has been posted on this site. I will be coming back on Thursday the 23rd for a weekend to the home state. I know the fishing has been good for some and not so good for others. Did the fishing get that good this past weekend that everyone is still fishing or tight lipped? Where are the reports? I have always watched and read this site along with Rogers and Morts and enjoyed the posts. Any help would be great. Thanks, Can't wait to get there!! laugh.gif

Catching varied here for us and our guest over the weekend, going out of the eastside and southshore. One group of three got zip on Thursday, but then Friday they headed out to the same area, just moved 100 yards and reeled in their limits of crappies ranging from 11" to 14". Another group got limits, two caught 17 between two days of fishing and lost some, two had 14, some caught two each, two others had four each, and all the way down the line to zero for me and only one for the other half. The folks I talked to said that the first crappie was reeled in between 6:30 and 7:30, and some stayed out on the ice until 11 picking some up here and there. For the most part, the crappies were hugging the bottom, but a couple of anglers said that they were getting theirs about 3' off the bottom. During the daytime a few keeper perch were caught.

Good luck to you!

Thanks Drake. Sounds like everyone had some fun. Is the bite still on red glow frostee's with some blue and green glows mixed in? That's always been the best bet for us.

We stayed in a sleeper friday and saturday night. Friday we caught 23 from 7 pm to 3 am. They were still biting but I could no longer tie knots.... Saturday we found a few to fill out our limit (there were three of us) We fished out of Hillman's in a few differant spots 6-8 miles out. Caught pleanty of Eye's and perch as well perch were not big enough to keep. Biggest walleye was a 25 incher (my biggest on red) biggest slab was 14.5 inches most between 13 and 14. My only dissapointment was I didn't get to the WW until sunday night and the place was M T, beer was still cold though.

Went up to LOTW on Sunday afternoon and was able to catch 5 keepers

      There is still a lot of ice out there, my best guess is that it should be pretty much ice free by the opener. Stay Safe Good Luck  Bear55

      I'll let ya know how rugged it is, it spent about 2 hours underwater when I put my wheeler through the ice a month ago. I'm scared to try and turn it on haha.

      Just wondering how much ice is left?

      I was in the Landing today to do some troubleshooting. Looks the same as it did. They’re working at getting ready.

      Thanks Borch:  this helps! I emailed the whole committee--hopefully one of them sees the ridiculousness in this. Basically:   1.)  the DNR set up a pilot.   2.)  The DNR analyzed their results and refused to enlarge the scope of the pilot 3.)  Legislature will, if passing this amendment, force the DNR expand a program that their own conclusions did NOT support expanding.  (* this is the time to insert your own clever comments about government doing stupid things contrary to evidence...)   Anyone that enjoys using the numerous MN lakes with public accesses NEEDS to take an active roll in this--let's overwhelm the server with emails from concerned fishers!; If we don't, I worry more and more lakes (associations) will place more and more barriers (in the "name" of AIS) to practically make the public lakes private...

      A bear in a residential area of North St. Paul was shot and killed today by a Department of Natural Resources conservation officer as authorities determined the animal posed an immediate safety threat.  The bear was a male and estimated as a two-year old, about 110 – 120 pounds. The bear carcass will be processed and the meat will be distributed to people in need of food. Due to the density of residences and roads in this area, it was unlikely that the bear would have been able to escape to more suitable habitat, especially during daylight hours and during the morning rush hour. Growing interest in the bear’s location was leading to a gathering of onlookers. Bears can become agitated and pose a danger to humans when they become trapped or cornered as this bear had become in the neighborhood tree. Law enforcement is authorized to dispatch bears in the metro area if they pose a public safety threat. The DNR does not tranquilize or relocate bears. Relocated bears seldom remain where they are released. They may return to where they were caught or become a problem somewhere else. It is not unusual for people to see bears in the spring as young males search out new territories. They are also are looking for food sources at a time when berries and vegetation are scarce. If people encounter a bear, the first thing they should do is back away slowly. They need to give the bear an escape route and make noise to scare the bear away. People should also clean-up and remove potential attractants such as bird feeders, garbage, and compost bins to reduce the chances of bears moving into developed and residential areas. Bear sightings outside of their primary northern forest range can be reported on an interactive map-based application on the Minnesota DNR website at mndnr.gov/hunting/bear/bear-sightings.html. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      A buddy and I fished Warroad yesterday, 730-400 5-fish biggest 39. We talked with a local guy who lives on the river said they have not came in hard yet. The 39 and 36 we caught were not spawned out. So we will give it another try next week. Also the ice seems to be going pretty fast  open I would say pretty close to a mile out, when it opened up in front of the docks 4-days ago, and its gonna get better.  Stay Safe Good Luck  Bear55

      Does anyone know where I can find out which lakes smothered out in the southern Minnesota areas? I have looked on the DNR website and can't seem to find out any information there. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
