Best Fish this Winter

Recommended Posts

Last weekend I caught a 2 lb. 15 in. perch. Not just my biggest this year but biggest perch ever. I almost fell off the bucket when she came through the ice.

Pike, 38 inches on a tip-up early ice on Birch Lake near Babbitt. Biggest toothy so far. Caught and released.

Prettiest fish was a 6 lb laker off Gunflint Lake last month on laker opener. Fat and healthy, with a deep bronze color I hadn't seen before. Caught but NOT released. grin.gif

Hey Ryan I suppose you get a good late ice bite up that way too. Does the river get bad ice way soon up there and what is kinda typical for a not safe to walk out date?

Always a guess, but I'm curious about the late ice opportunities up there. When does the season close?

Regards....fiskyknut

I have caught a few Walleye around 24-26 inches, I'm slackin this year bad. Perch to near 15"s. The Pike bite is yet to come.

you can fish the river right until the season closes at the last day of march..season re-opens second week in may i believe..fishing can be really hot in mid march when a little extre flow starts happing under the ice.

If by catching you mean pulling out of the hole than I "caught" a beauty 47" musky on January 3rd in Ontario. Didn't even need a rod. Signed the Musky Master

Well I have nothing up to the sizes you are talking about but managed to land my first walleye/sauger through the ice this winter thanks to some of the guys on the Forum.

Most memorable would be meeting up with a couple of new fishing buddies and sharing the bite.

Has to be Jason Van Ert's 48 inch muskie thru the ice hands down. Nothing like seeing a 4 foot long fish come out of a hole in the ice.

    • I would get a dlb ladder stand and sit with my kid as much as I could.  Don't let the dude bully you if you have the right to be there as well.  She may not know the age of this person if he had his kid go down there and get permission and he is really doing the hunting?  
    • He has permission from the landowner, let him hunt. If the 50 year old does anything to affect his hunt that is "hunter harassment" and he should be charged. 
    • Obviously the guy has "passion" for "his" hunting spot.  I would try to meet him face to face with your son and see if you couldn't reasonably discuss it and come to an agreement.  Possibly do it at the landowners home if you want to put him in his place.  This of course first goes with how you feel this gentleman would be towards a talk.  After all it is not his land and he can't just bully his way around.  Now if you feel he is psychotic then don't bother.  I have a chunk of land that I can't hunt (even though I have permission and all the rights to hunt it) because the neighbor is crazy enough that he will possibly hunt me and I don't need that feeling of being hunted.  Hope you can work things out!  People get funny when it comes to hunting land especially when they know there is a bigger deer in the area. 
    • Can anyone suggest a good place in the North Metro to get a Honda EU2000 tuned up? Been running problem free for 6 years so I figure it's time.   Thanks in advance for the help.
    • Tough deal on this one.    You've got to decide how much fight you want to put into this.  There are also a lot of life lessons here to teach your son just depends on which one you want to focus on.    In most circumstances I would start out by going to the landowner and explaining the issues and see if you can get it resolved.  However, with it being an 85 year old woman you'll have to decide if you want to drag her into it. I'd probably at least inform her of the issue so that she's aware of what is happening on her property and what type of person is out there.  She should at least know that much as the landowner  If she wants to make it right then so be it but I wouldn't push her on it.  Just leave it as a heads up and let her know your son will move on as to not cause trouble if she doesn't seem like she's got it in her to straighten things out. 
    • Honestly, I would probably do what you did and tell my kid he did everything right, but to move on. This is assuming you didn't get the impression the guy was going to change his mind when you spoke to him.   Unless you know her, the last thing the landowner probably wants to do is get involved in the dispute. And I'm sure you don't want your kid out there alone, not knowing if the older guy will confront him or how unreasonable he could be if he does.              
    • Kind of why I want to work with him rather than just [PoorWordUsage] him off. 
    • Sounds like a good neighbor to get to know if he's going to be around all the time.  
    • My 15 year old son knocked on a neighbors door about 1/2 mile from our house. She is 85 and owns around 120 acres.  He's been watching 2 nice bucks all summer long.  She gave him permission and said one other neighborhood kid is hunting it also but lots of land shouldn't be an issue.  He went and hung a stand a few weeks ago. Its the property where he shot the doe off in the previous thread.  Well the neighborhood kid turned into be a 50 yr old guy down the road.  He showed up at our house last evening, I wasn't home and had a discussion with my wife about how my son shouldn't be out there, has no right to be hunting there and didn't discuss it with him.   If he shoots one of the bucks out there, there will be problems.  I obviously called the gentleman last night and expressed my distaste for his attitude and his discussion with my wife when she was alone.  I also stated we are talking about a 15 yr old kid and I'm proud of the fact he's able to go around knock on doors, ask for permission, share his ability with landowners and get permission all on his own.  I talked with my son about it, and told him it would probably be best to not hunt over there and he needs to go take the stand down and move on.  He was heartbroken, since he got the permission on his own, put his stand up, cut shooting lanes.  I get someone being protective over a spot, I tried to explain to the gentleman that we are talking about a kid.  He has the permission to be there. How would you guys handle it.
