first, you gotta be at the right place at the right time...

try tip-ups rigged with fathead minnows. For jigging, I've had luck with jigging-raps and a minnow head on the bottom treble or a swedish pimple/spoon jig with a minnow head.

Tip-ups baited with whatever minnow is working best on the lake you are fishing work very well. A bait shop close to the lake that you will be fishing will be able to tell you what minnow is selling the best, which is a good indication as to which bait is the best. Set the tip-uo depth so that your bait will be around 6" to 16" off of the bottom.

Use a #2 red bait hook with just enough split shot weight to keep the minnow down on the bottom.

On most lakes you cannot go wrong using any gold colored jigging spoon on your jigging rod. Perch and silver colors are also good options. Use either a whole small minnow or at times just a minnow head for bait.

Keep your presentation close to the bottom most of the time.

If possible, try to get out with someone who knows the ropes. This will really cut down your learning time!

Good Fishing!

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota walleye are being caught at a variety of depths with 24-27’ being the most consistent. Glow red with gold has been a hot combo this week. Rattle baits continue to draw active fish to our houses. Sauger activity has been very strong, providing Anglers the opportunity for full limits before new regulations take effect on March 1st. New limit regulations give a combination of six walleye/sauger with no more than 4 walleye. The slot of 19.5”-28 must be immediately release with one walleye over 28’ to be allowed in possession.

      Canadian crappies are still filling buckets and freezers, they can be found near the bottom in 32-35ft. Super light tackle and willingness to keep trying different jig combinations is producing the most fish.  Many tulibee are being seen this week, which make for a tasty treat out of the smoker.  Walleye fishing continues to be very good in traditional areas, depth at 23-28ft. 

      Snow depth in our areas is between 2 and 2.5 ft. Trails are in great condition after last weeks snow and wind conditions. 

      Until next week, 
      Sunset Lodge
    • I must be mad at math, honestly we just lost 4 in a row and weren't good before that and yet we cling to 8th place. We can't even tank right and get a better draft pick. 
    • Borsch posted a reminder in the st cloud forum, so I wont take credit for being johnny on the spot but in 13 days you'all need to get a new fishing license.
    • I put a call into the Wisconsin DNR, they said March 1st license will be available.
    • good for you guys leech!!  and a darn good lookin family too!!!  being blessed like that is darn good!!!
    • What do you mean they are still in a playoff spot. Come on think positive! At least wait until they get done playing the blues today before you start to sing the blues. 
    • Tried to purchase the D season Wisconsin tag i was drawn for yesterday. Clerk said try again at the end of March, any truth to that? I will call the Wisconsin DNR on Tuesday (holiday tomorrow).
    • Well put in a few miles with the grandkids and daughter by Orock MN on Sat.  Trails were pretty nice but there were lots of sleds out and I'm sure they will be pretty beat up by the end of the weekend! Little guys had a great time driving and riding in the sleigh. Hot chocolate and cookies are always a good ride break warmer! Fun day, God has blessed me well.
