The last two weeks have been hot and dry but the fishing has been pretty good.  Calm winds have hurt the fishing a bit.  Fish do not seem to be schooled up as much as they should be. One day fishing is really good and the next just OK.  Walleye that are being caught consistently have been in 4 to 6 feet of water but have moved out to 8 to 10 feet the last couple of days.  If we could get some sustained winds to concentrate the bait fishing would be a lot easier.  Weather changes with more normal temperatures should get  something going on a consistent basis.  Female walleye are starting to feed a bit more with some really nice fish being caught, that should only get better over the next couple of weeks.  The outpost fishing has been fantastic  and reports from the surrounding area have been…

Opening Weekend

22 05 2018

Somewhat of a slow start on Saturday turned around and fishing is picking up everyday.  Cold water temps Saturday made fishing tough for the most part but warm dry weather has moved in and so have the walleye.  Find water temps in the mid 50’s and you should see some action.  There is larva present in the walleye that are being filleted, and everyday the water warms, more larva and hatches will occur.  Targeting shallow warm water is a good place to start right now.  Trout waters are still cool and you can find fish in 15 to 30 feet of water, trout action has been very good over the last week or so.  Water temps are averaging 53 degrees, hitting 57 in the afternoon.





Cancellation

6 04 2018

A cabin just opened up for the week of May 26th, 2018.  Excellent week for fishing.  If you or anyone you know would be interested please let us know.  This is our only cabin available until July 7th.  We also have September 8th available at our outpost.  Thank you.





It’s Still Winter.

29 03 2018

A short report from the north would say winter is still here.  Unless the weather drastically warms up we should have ice well into the first part of May, that’s only my guess.  Depending who you are and where you are fishing the reports are all over the map.  With a couple of warmer days we are starting to see some flow from the feeder creeks.  This running water should start bringing the Northern Pike and Walleye into the shallower water of these creek mouths.  It seems everyday is different.  We have been able to get out a bit as of late and our report is spotty at best but we do hear of some pretty nice catches in the area.

 

 





GOOD WINTER FISHING

9 03 2018

Fish have been on the feed this past week.  I was able to get out with some friends and regardless of the species you are after you will be putting fish on the ice.  We hit a spot one evening in which we caught whitefish, northern pike, walleye, perch, and lake herring.  We caught and released some really nice 24 and 25 inch walleye and were able to catch a few nice males for a great winter time feed.  The whitefish are on the smoker right now.  Looking forward at the weather it looks like we will be able to enjoy some excellent fishing well into April.  Enjoy the awesome pics the boys were able to take.





Successful Wolf Hunt

7 03 2018

Corey Meurer from Minnesota capitalized on the second day of his hunt.  He had 5 wolves come into the area and was able to harvest this beautiful trophy Timber Wolf.

 

Being out and about the last month it has been nice to see the amount of moose activity.  Although there has been several killed by wolves in our area this winter the population seems to be on the rise.  I wish we would have taken pictures yesterday when we seen 3  moose cross a lake that we were on.  Fishing has also picked up in the area as of late.  Trout fishing and crappie fishing has been the go to activity on the ice.  Conditions are fantastic for getting around.  Plenty of snow and ice.
