“In today’s world of technology, one of the most helpful Web sites I’ve seen
is fishingminnesota.com. Fishing Minnesota makes finding the hot bite
quicker, easier and – I’m even surprised to say it – more fun.”

Annandale-Buffalo-Big lake Minnesota MN There wasn't much action last night. Nobody I talked to had caught more then just a couple of crappies last night. I'm wondering if the crappies are starting to bite early in the afternoon

Bemidji Minnesota MN typical Lake Bemidji bite am and pm bites, with some action from 11-2 also. We will be out this weekend during the day, so I will know after that. I am on the edge of a bar and don't have GPS coordinates, just a spot I start out with every year. When the action slows we move.

Blackduck Minnesota MN The guys that hit it yesterday said that they were measuring approx. 15-16" of ice. The access is opened up and there are some vehicles that are going out of there, although there is no real plowed roads; just a couple folks plowed to their fish houses. On the southside of the Duck, Beaver Creek has plowed again this year and our folks have liked his roads. On the north end of the lake, Dunrovin is plowing this year; both of these are a pay access.

BWCA-Duluth-Ely Minnesota MN Hit Island Lake for a while today. Awesome weather today for the fisherman but the fish must have been laying back having cocktails in the sand. Only managed 3 eyes in the 14" range, some nice blue gills but no crappies. I think the Lund is done for the year now.

Crane-Kabetogama-Namakan Minnesota MN We were up over New Years. There is about a foot of snow on the lakes with very few slush pockets. It would be kind of border line for ATV. Snowmobile would be the preferred route.

Rainy River Minnesota MN We had two different groups that came on our "Bring your own gear" lodging special this weekend. What was really neat is how they worked together to produce some big fish. Many were caught in the 20's with the biggest being 29". Rainy is a big lake and when people work together great things can happen. People are driving out to Birch Point. We have great ice and a great winter ahead of us.

South West Minnesota
I was at Shaokatan the other evening and I the water actually didn't look too bad. There were a few chunks of moss here and there, but for the most part, it was actually trollable. I was quite surprised. The weather this year has been strange.

Lake Vermilion Minnesota MN The walleye bite has been very slow the past two weeks on the East end of the lake.
Almost all of our fish that we are managing to get to bite are comming out of 24' to 32 ' of water.
Tip-ups and deadsticks baited with pike suckers or shiners are working best for me.

Lake Winnibigoshish Minnesota MN Yeah, we drove out of the Birches access. It's funny out there in winter, how some humps are so specie specific. I've got one hump that's full of gators and the occasional pout. That's it......never catch a perch or walleye out there. I've got another hump that all I can ever catch is tulibees on it.
