ice/fishing report

Recommended Posts

Hi!
Went to Yellow first this am. Still had ice on half of it so I didn't fish there. Ice looked like it we be gone by the end of today. Went to a small lake south of Yellow and picked up 15 crappie, most about 10". It was nice to see them biting already, didn't know what to expect. About 8' of water, sw (sheltered) side of the lake.
Looked like all lakes south of Webster were clear or would be clear of ice before the end of this hot, windy day.
Time to go get 'em guys!

Hi Again!

Took my eight year old yesterday to try for crappies in the Siren area. Tried a souple of lakes, but we only got one crappie on each . All we need is some warmer days!

Happy Easter to All!

Hi Again!
Went fishing Friday with Pigsticka and my 4 year old. Went to 5 different lakes in Polk and Burnett county. Caught crappies on two of the lakes, just a few bass and northerns (accidently) on the other three. The couple lakes we found them on, once we found them, we'd have times we were catching them on every cast.
Most were running either side of 10". We kept trying different lakes trying to find the bigger crappies but nothin' doin' yet for them. Kept about 15 and let the rest go.
Must be still a little early, but they're out there if you work at it. The ones we found were in 6 to 8 feet of water.

I was able to fish the morning today with my 4 year old again. We ran into a few crappies on Yellow. Slow bite, but caught about 15 in 6 hours. Kept 9 for dinner.
Also caught a walleye about 18" and a couple 21" northern.
They're still acting like it's early.
Good Luck!

How deep were you fishing on Yellow? I'm heading up for the opener this weekend and am very excited. Thanks in advance for the reply.

Hi CarlSpackler!
I was fishing mainly four to eight feet and had to do a lot of searching. This weekend should be fun but I'm sure you'll have a lot of company (crowded). Good Luck! Let us know how you do!

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
    • Ok getting things back on track.  Next month will be my 14th year and I think I've only met one other member.  Met Frank (Surface Tension) several years back on Fish Lake near Duluth.  He was incredibly helpful and generous sharing his knowledge of the lake.  If I remember right my dad and I drove up and Frank called saying the forecast looked like rain for the entire day.  Well my dad and I were already on the way and were going to fish rain or shine so Frank and his son still geared up and met us for some fishing.  I don't remember exactly how the day broke down but I remember get really wet but also catching a lot of nice fish.  I've fished the lake a lot since but that was my best day by a long shot.
