I have a chance to get to the north shore area this weekend. Wondering if it is worth bring up my shore poles. I am sure the streams are locked up; but is it worth packing the gear in case if a sunny calm day to sit on the shore line? Any streams showing signs of opening up at all?? maybe I should check-in closer to the weekend.

As of Sat the North Shore was all locked up and with the 14+ inches of snow we got on Sunday I would say no to shore poles. I am heading up there for work tomorrow so I will repost if no one else does first.

yes, that is option 2 for me I think. Really got an itch for some open water Loopers on a big pole. I know it would be fun to catch some lakers but not really sure where to start. Never targeted them before, and seems a little overwhelming w/ no experience. I am pretty well set up for walleye, pike, and panfish through the ice though. Is there a lake or two a couple of novices could try for a laker w/ walleye gear? Is there somewhere that is easy to acces w/ full size 4x4 truck? If its warm a nice hike to really good lake would be great if portables aren't necessary. I know that I will enjoy the time away no matter what happens. May need to do some exploring, maybe do some scouting for this spring/ summer. If things change up there. please post, thanx for the help so far.

If all you have is panfish gear than go to some of the designated stream trout lakes. Are gonna be in grand marais? The most accessible lakes are Mink, Kimball, and Trout Lakes. They're full of splake and rainbows. If you have a tip up, that's all you'll need for lake trout. Head to Gunflint or Loon Lake. Jig deep with a sucker minnow on the bottom, then set your tip up with a frozen cisco a few feet off the bottom.

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?
