A week on Pillsbury reef has produced nothing more than a few small crappies and perch...and even they were hard to come by. Anyone else finding better luck....clearly its time to move the house.

I was in the North bay from about 3-6:30 tonight...1 13" eye and one 12" crappie and plenty of small perch...we saw a VERY nice eye on the camera around 4 but it wasn't too interested...all in all a slow night...

I moved my house sat. morning out to the deeper water near pillsbury. Nothing but millions of tiny perch and 1 small 10" walleye. 2 years ago we caught crappies like crazy out there.

We fished on the east side of the lake Saturday night from 4-10:30PM. 3 small crappies and two perch. True meaning to slower than molasses in January. Didn't graph too many either or even see one on the camera while it was light out. confused.gif

Had a very tough bite saturday, alot of snif and swim away going on, managed to fool a few crappies but thats about it, nothing big. Fishing in 14-16fow.

Tried to get out sunday, gas auger broke on us and of course this time I didnt bring my hand auger as backup. I am giving up on the idea that fisherman are gererally nice people, because everytime this has happened to me, NOBODY will help a fellow fisherman out. I only asked one guy this time in a portable with his auger just outside and the only response I got was "NO". We gave up and went home. Not the first time this has happened, I can never seem to find any nice people out there that would drill a hole for me. Personally, I would never be rude to another fisherman, or refuse to help them out unless they had given me a reason to, apparently I am in the minority here. I put a curse on the man's fish house, he will regret not helping!

There are some nice fisherman left...

I was on Mille Lacs in mid December and 2 guys come rolling out with their 4 wheeler and their portables, about a mile from the access. they find their spot about 50 yards away and start to set up. Then all of a sudden i here "(^()&*(%*&%" we forgot our auger. They came over and told me that they left their auger at home, 3 hours away. I told them to feel free to use mine. I felt sorry for them, if that was me i sure would want a little help.

Glad to hear there are some nice people out there still. I really dont understand the thinking behind some people that take this fishing thing a little too seriously. I love fishing as much as the next guy, and I put as much time on the water as I can, but could never take it so seriously as to be rude to people because they are near "my" spot, or refuse to help someone because I dont want them fishing by me. I guess all I can do is not let it effect the way I treat other people in the future. Good Luck everyone, fishing should start getting better soon!

All in all most ice fisherman are good people. Last year I took a group of guys out to Forest Lake. Got out setup everything and started up the auger. Pulled the rip cord out. There was a permanent shack just near by. I asked the guy if I could borrow his and he was happy to help out. He even sent his son up to the house to get the tools to get it fixed right on the ice.

i had my snowmobile seize up on me about a month or so ago on mille lacs, i was headed out to the flats so i was i few miles out on the lake, and there was a fella who was headed out to the same area i was, he stopped and brought me and my house into shore. i later had to a pay a resort to go pick up my sled, which i thought maybe they would be nice enought too get it since i payed the road fee.

I made it out there sat early around 6-8:15am and caught two small crappies and about a doz and a half 3-5 inch pearch. I'm thinking it's time to move the perm away from the new city out there. Droped the camera down and saw perch all day long... Where the xxxx did my crappies go? smirk.gif

a week ago we were fishing on a lake we walked out there. while we were fishing a guy asked if he could barrow my auger. so i let him he came back and offered me 20 dollars i said no just keep it. so when we were starting to pack up he came over with his 4 wheeler and offered us a ride up to the access. so he gave us a ride to the access and dropped us off right at our pick up. i'd let anybody barrow my auger anyday to have somebody pull my portable out laugh.gif

      Does anyone know where I can rent and/or use a paddle board on Vermilion? Thanks!

      We fished the small lake a few week back the water was really high. No luck with bass around the pads tried Texas rigged worms and spinner baits, we did find crappies in 8-10" around Lilly pads and reeds crappies were caught on panfish leaches and small glow jigs.

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

      Definitely getting ready for archery season!

      A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you.
