I haven't been to these lakes this year yet and would like to take my nephew out for some panfish and northerns. Wondering if these lakes would be a good option or any other lakes come to mind. Thanks in advance!!

Was on Grand all day 01/17 picked up a few tiny pike and a ton of very small sunnies, 1 real nice crappie. 100% catch and release day.

No real luck last night, got stripped by a northern. About 12 cars on the ice probably 14 inches, safe.

Was on Pearl yesterday afternoon had a decent northern get off at the hole... 30 inches maybe... and also a few average sunnies and a couple crappies. Saw a lot more on the vex than actually bit, changed jigs quite a bit just couldn't figure out what was wrong.

Thanks for the reports. If you don't mind me asking, what depth were the panfish in? The last time I fished on Pearl I went out from the public access and way to the right. Is that a good spot to start? Thanks.

I focused on the 10-15 foot breaks... most of the time with better luck near the bottom.

Fever

Hit pearl Sat. Went out from the acess straight south about 700 yards to a good break from 8 down to 14. Caught 3 average 2-3lb pike on a tip up using med sucker chubs. Got bit off 3 times, two times on the hook set with the tip up and once while jigging a sweedish pimple and minnow head. Alot of pike action to be had. Also got into a bunch of smaller sunnies using wax worms. Alot of people out there most driving. There was about 13-14 inches of ice. Find live (green)weeds and you'll be into the fish. good luck. (((TIP UP)))...

      Hi, I am writing on here to try to find the owner of some fishing gear that was left on East Rush Lake. I found it last Sunday morning and would like to get the gear back to the owner. If you can describe what you lost I'm willing to meet up and return your stuff back to you. I know how much it sucks losing your gear and starting over. Call me if you think it might be your gear.  Travis 651-315-9913

      Best to contact the DNR and let them access it to see if they think it's an issue before you end up with a fine.

      No, I went out the north access that you can't launch a boat on. 237th and Granda off of North Shore Trail. Very north end of Lake 1.

      I know there's no perfect boat for all rivers and lakes.  But, I've had aluminum jonboats for 60-years with no problems, so far.   My question is....  what type of aluminum boat do you like for most MN lakes?     I like  a 1648 boat, but undecided on the bow type....  Flat bottom, modified. V,  or Deep V?   What do you like?     Thanks for your help.

      Just a heads up that you cannot trap beavers on an WMA without a permit from the wildlife manager.

      The cost is for sure starting to get up there.  I've been wanting to take the kids but I just can't justify the cost for a weekend of fishing.  All of ice fishing trips end up being guys trips where we all split the costs, then it doesn't end up being that bad.  I'm guessing the bulk of the groups that outfitters service are groups of guys splitting the costs and that is partly what drives their pricing.  If they were pricing the houses and services with families of 4 in mind they likely wouldn't be able to charge nearly as much.    I can't fault the resorts as they are pricing based on what the majority of their clientele are.  Very few resorts are out there getting rich regardless.  I do however think hundreds of dollars a night for a single room shack with plywood bunk beds is a bit crazy when you really think about it. I pay less per night when staying in high end hotels in down town Minneapolis.

      Just booked our first LOTW winter trip this week. Interesting and funny😂 reading this thread. I thought the price for a long weekend was a bit steep, but like others have said, it's guys trip so we will be paying per person. I can fully understand the family angle.   Thanks for the laughs!

      Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      FYI May have been mentioned before but just in case, there is a ridge running from Gold Island towards Breezy Point in Frazer bay as well.
