  1. When do the crappie/ sunny start to move shallow?
  2. WHAT AN INCREDIBLE SEASON IT HAS BEEN SO FAR, AND WE'RE JUST GETTING STARTED! Now, certainly hitting some of the best fishing of the season for ALL species!!! Walleyes have been on the chow on most of the midsized bodies of water along the weed edges, sunken humps and bars anywhere from 12” to 28” of water. Keep an eye on the primary transition areas such as sand to muck, boulders to gravel, weeds to sand (etc.) These areas are key right now. Leech Lake does have a bug hatch going on currently, but the fish are still active and hitting. Slowing down your troll, and using simpler presentat
  3. 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!
  4. 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. Otherw
  5. I am heading to Florida on vacation in a day and I'm not sure what sort of ice conditions I'm going to come back to in the Twin Cities in April. With that I mind I decided to walk out on a Metro lake with a buddy on Wednesday to try to capitalize on a sundown shallow water bite. We used big baits and fished a shallow weedy point. The Crappies would come flying out of the thick stuff and hammer the baits - it was a lot of fun to watch on the flasher! How late into April do you think we'll be ice fishing in the Metro?
  6. Hi All Well hoping that's the last of the bone chilling temps. Ice travel has been outstanding. Picked up some crappies before the new year, even got a chance to fish with my daughter. Did a little Laker fishing - more looker then takers. But hey that's fishing Cheers Robert - photo credit Vic & Dots
  7. It's been a while since I've been active in fishing forums. Social media had taken over but I feel that there is more opportunity to help people and share valuable information. Hopefully I will be able to do that. That being said it's time to get down to business! I went out fishing yesterday with Brooke and Cole in search of anything that would bite. I was hoping for Crappies and to be honest we had to work at it. The first lake we hit was a bust. Bluegills were crazy everywhere we looked and they would constantly attack our baits. We decided to move lakes rather than wait 5 hours
  8. Here is this weeks fishing report! http://www.sunsetlodgeresort.com/fishing-reports Up at the NW Angle, with the fall transition we are switching to deep points. 24 to 30 feet. Look for narrow areas going into big bays. Water temperature has dropped to 65 degrees. On the Ontario side, with the crappie bite back on, it's time to look East towards North Island and Falcon Island! On the Minnesota side, you guessed it, FOUR BLOCKS! We are fishing mud out around the Four Blocks area. Just drifting, pulling spinner and worms. Here is Forrest Huset's muskie report for the week, "Fish are stil
  9. Springtime panfish are universally sought-out, which is mostly due to their nature of being aggressively schooled-up and more than eager to attack whatever you put in front of their stout little noses. Big sunfish and slab crappies are caught throughout the Midwestern belt during the spring season and it provides some excellent action for anglers both young and old. However, the springtime flurry doesn’t last forever and those same aggressive-natured fish will once again become less energetic and will transform into wandering nomads, only feeding when their bellies tell them to. No longer do t
  10. Right before Fishing Opener I had the itch to get on the water so I dropped my kayak in the Backwaters and targeted Crappies. It took a bit to find them but when I did, the bite was on! Got into a mess of White Crappies with an awesome average of over 11". Smallest fish of the day was 10.5". Throw in a few bonus Walleye & a big Bass on the Ultralight and you have a day I won't soon forget!
