Long Point and Rocky Point spots have been seeing a reliable bite from the sound of things. If I were you I'd probably go out on Babblers road somewheres around the some of the rockpiles out there. Road closed this weekend but hopefully he'll have back in shape in the next couple few days?

Have a good trip.....fiskyknut

Take hwy 15 N out of Rooseveldt to the last curve on the hwy before Arnesons resort and you'll see his sign. He's right there on Rocky Point. Fishing grounds kinda start right out from there, road goes near to Gull Rock, then on around Arnesons reef area and on out to 16mile. He will hopefully have it back in shape here soon once the weather settles.

Sheephead24- I just went up to LOW off Babbler's road for the first time on the 17th. It was easy to find. When you pull into Babbler's road just stop at the shack and put your money in and out you go... I bought a $20 Lakemaster map and plotted out some areas. I never got past the Gull rock area because we caught a good amount of fish. Nothing big (but big enough) and we brought home our limits. I was fishing in 28' of water. I had been planning on going all the way out to 12 mile but didn't get that far. Next time I'm bringing a portable too cuz there's lots of good looking area to try. Good luck!

How far out is the Gull Rock area? and do you need a map to find it? Thanks for the help.

Don't need a map, you can see it from shore.

I am also going to the big pond this weekend, fishing the 3rd and 4th out of a sleeper house. Since there will be a lot of snow, I'd consider calling ahead and checking with people that rent houses. I am using a guide that has 4 bomber vehicles and plenty of fish houses. His cost is by far the cheapest and if you want to call me I can pass on his info to you. I used him 2 weeks ago with the kids and we caught plenty of eyes with the biggest being 19". 701-388-3654

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
