  1. We recently embarked on a paddling, fishing and camping adventure on the Saint Croix River.. We put the Kayaks in at Interstate Park (MN) and our take out point was Marine on St. Croix (16.1 miles downstream). In between those launches we explored the river, back waters, caught multiple different species of fish, camped one night at a primitive site, got rained on and had a blast! I can't wait to get back out on that stretch of river. This video captures a good portion of our adventure.
  2. For the 2019 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went out on Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. Our first day the fishing was slow with a lot of different tactics and areas tried. We made a change that evening and casted artificials into rocky shorelines with a lot of success. We decided to try that again the next morning when a large surprise inhaled my jerkbait!
  3. For our final day of fishing on our stay at Flag Island Resort we went back into the Canadian side of LOTW to target giant Crappies through the ice. We caught good numbers of Crappies along with some real Slabs, throw in a 26" Walleye and Day 3 did not disappoint! It was tough to leave Flag Island but I will be back up there again soon fishing off the grid and taking in the beautiful sights and sounds.
  4. Day 1 up on Flag Island Resort brought us many Walleye, Sauger and Perch on the Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods. Day 2 however we went into the Canadian water to fish an area that has Walleye, Perch, Sauger and some REALLY BIG Crappies! This plan and location did not disappoint - I won't be forgetting this day on the ice!
  5. A group of us recently made it up to Flag Island Resort for 3 days of multispecies ice fishing on Lake of the Woods. The accommodations and folks who worked at the Resort were top notch! Bending over backwards to put you on fish and make your trip one to remember. The Fishing - Day 1 it was decided to stay, somewhat, close to the Resort in the MN side of LOTW to target Walleye, Sauger and Perch due to 24+ hours of snow. We got into pretty good numbers of fish and some quality fished showed up as well! Below is a video of that action from Day 1.
  6. A group of high school buddies and some of their family make an Annual trip up to Baudette, MN to fish Walleyes on Lake of the Woods. I look forward to this trip each year! Since this is an Annual Trip we all put some money and bragging rights on the line for the Angler who can catch the biggest fish of the weekend, take home the Trophy, $500 Cash and call themselves "Mr. Walleye" for the next 365 days. The Largest Perch and Heaviest Eelpout/Burbot also take home prizes. I didn't have the camera's rolling on Day 1 (which was lights out) but on Day 2 of the trip we were filming. It was fun day and I even caught my new Personal Best Perch!
  7. I recently met up with my buddy Al to check out a small lake that I had never fished before (Al had only open water fished it). We didn't get to the lake until after sundown and we immediately started drilling holes looking for fish. It didn't take us too long to find an area that the fish were frequenting. We caught a couple fish and set up the flipover. We wound up getting into some nice Crappies and to our surprise some really nice Sunfish. I would really like to get back to this lake soon to explore some new areas and learn it a bit more as it definitely has quality fish!
  8. After the craziness that is the Holidays we packed up and headed North for the in-laws Cabin on Vermilion. While up there we did a lot of different types of fishing (BWCA Lake Trout, Hole Hopping for Walleye, Fishing from a Permanent House) and we were met with some really tough fishing. This video was filmed on New Years Day when it was -22 degrees. I expected more of the same but wound up catching over 30 fish this morning. Even though my day didn't go according to plan it was a nice change of pace to bring up fish after fish!
  9. On Saturday I drove into Wisconsin to meet up with my buddy Matt and his Dad to target some Crappies. The weather was perfect and allowed us to stay mobile & hole hop around all day to catch fish. We found a good average size (10-12") and some larger fish mixed in. I started the day fishing a 4mm tungsten jig with big plastics but the fish seemed to shy away so I downsized to the smaller profile (3.8mm) tungsten fly and almost every fish I marked turned into a biter. I always have a Wisconsin fishing license so I'm hoping to check out a few new lakes this winter across the border.
  10. @bassfshin24 and I snuck up to Mille Lacs for 2 days of fishing recently. We were targeting Walleye near shallow structure in the low light hours and bumping out a bit deeper during mid-day. The first day was slow for us but we found more action on Day 2 including my 2nd biggest Walleye through the ice. I also caught my first tagged Walleye! Pay attention for my slip and fall...
  11. Black Friday has become an Ice Fishing tradition for. While a lot of people flood to stores to save some money, a buddy and I always seem to head to the lake to catch some fish! This year we hit a Metro Lake with 4" of CLEAR ice for Bluegill and Crappies. It was a blast being able to see them fight right underneath you! We could have done without the waves of rain however.
  12. This Monday I was able to sneak out and find some fishable ice in the Metro. The bite wasn't fast and furious but it felt awesome to get back out on the ice and fight a couple of fish! Anyone who is venturing out soon please be safe, use the proper safety equipment (I cover what I like to use in the video) and check the ice every step. This warm weather coming should make the ice even more unpredictable.
  13. For the 2018 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went up to Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. The morning started off slow for us so we changed up the tactics and it resulted in a livewell full of walleyes, a few Slot fish and a new Personal Best!
  14. Last week I dropped the kayak in a Minnesota Metro lake to target some shallow Crappies as they prepare for the Spawn. It took me a little while to find them but once I did, it was one on every pass. The Bass were thick in the shallows as well and I had an unexpected visit from a Toad that put a bend in the Ultralight!
  15. While on vacation in Marco Island, FL we went back down to the Beach to do some more Surf Fishing. At the end of our last trip we found a group of rocks that seemed to be holding a lot of different species including Sheepshead and Pompano. We decided to start our day near these rocks this time and they didn't disappoint. We were using 1/4oz and 1/2oz egg sinkers with circle hooks and shrimp to catch all of our fish.
