Hello everyone! It has been a great year of fishing so far and many beautiful fish are being caught everyday. 

 

In Minnesota working rock reefs and points in the morning and evening hours and then moving to deeper areas off of structure during mid day has been best. Gravel bars, humps and deep mud areas have all been producing fish as well. The Best depth has been 13-20 feet in the mornings and evenings and 20-30 during mid day. The best tactic has been using a jigging rod with a lindy flyer, buckshot, rippin rap, charmer or flutter spoon tipped with a minnow head or tail. Live minnows under a bobber have worked as well.

 

Over on the Canadian side the Crappie bite has been good in all north and east spots. A tungsten jig with a plastic and waxy has been the best combo. 30 feet for the crappies and 25 or deeper for the walleyes has been the best. For the walleyes a weasel, lindy flyer or charmer has been the best. There is a lot of hard packed snow on the lake and it is suggested to have scrapers for snowmobiles, many snowmobiles were overheating last week. Over night we got a few inches of snow which should help the situation.

 

We'd love to see you soon!

 

Until next week, good luck fishing!

    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme. 
    • New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers.  This will be available through Polaris Dealers.   https://fishingminnesota.com/forums/topic/210952-new-ice-shelter-from-polaris-and-otter/    
    • Sure I do Dave. You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from?  Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜    
    • Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....     BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
