fishing report

Most panfish have moved out to the 10-14 ft. weeds on Clearwater, Indian Lake, Lake Sylvia, Sugar Lake, Lake John, and Maple Lake, but if you look you can still find some sunfish along the shorelines. Since the warmer weather moved in, northern pike have become very active along the weedlines. On...
Sunfish remain along the shorelines on Maple Lake, Lake John, Indian Lake, Lake Sylvia, and Clearwater Lake, and you can locate crappies in weeds at 12-15 ft. On Sylvia, Clearwater, Buffalo Lake, and Big Swan Lakes, use minnows or leeches on the developing 12-15 ft. weed edges, if you want to catch...
The cool, windy weather conditions over the past week have been keeping the fishing pressure light, but once the sun comes out and the water temperature warms up, check out Clearwater Lake, Sugar Lake, Cedar Lake, and Lake Sylvian to find crappies in the bays, harbors and shorelines. The second...
The weather was poor this past week and the fishing activity was limited due to those conditions. Look for crappies in 10-15 ft. on lakes Sylvia, Cedar, and Sugar until the shallow bays, channels, harbors, and shorelines warm up. Most reports from the first turkey season indicate that there’s...
Due to the cold water, there hasn’t been much for shallow water panfish reports, but start looking for them to move into more shallow water when the temperatures rise. On Clearwater Lake, Sugar Lake, and Lake Sylvia, anglers have been finding crappies in 10-15 ft. of water. Little Jim's Bait (320)...
Despite the nice weather last weekend, most of the bays, channels, boat harbors, and other spring crappie spots still aren’t holding big bunches of panfish. Until water temperatures improve several more degrees, anglers can look for crappies suspended just outside of those areas. Little Jim's Bait...
Wind the recent strong winds, any ice that remained on the lakes went out early this week. As the temperatures start warming, the traditional spring spots should start holding panfish. Check those bays, harbors, and shorelines for crappies. Little Jim's Bait (320) 274-5297
Last weekend there were some very limited ice fishing options, but those have quickly come to an end. Shorelines on most lakes have deteriorated and main lake ice has become soft very fast as well. The ice on many lakes is also starting to turn black, especially with the rain early this week....
Anglers were walking on some of the area lakes, but the shorelines have pulled away on most, so you might have to be creative to get on them this weekend. Venture out to Clearwater Lake, Lake Sylvia, Lake John, Maple Lake, French Lake, and Sugar Lake to catch some sunfish and crappies in 5-15 ft.,...
Heading into this weekend, ATVs will likely be the best option to get around. Trucks were being used on many lakes earlier in the week and even though main lake ice remains excellent, some shorelines have started breaking loose. Lake Sylvia, Lake Francis, Pleasant Lake, Clearwater Lake, Indian Lake...
