Fishing Report, April 16, 2018

Posted by

Fishing has been very hit and miss over the last couple weeks. Some fishermen have reported good bites on Crappie and Jumbo perch, but it is very day to day. Perch up on Leech have definitely started moving in shallower and should heat up as the sun starts becoming a regular appearance. We've heard reports out of Sandy Point, Cedar Point, and Agency Bay from 6' to 15' on fatheads mostly.

Panfish have been showing up on a few lakes here, but as mentioned, it has been pretty hit and miss. Mornings have been good for both sunfish and crappie. Evenings have been a little slower typically, but there are still crappie to be had. Crappie have been mostly staging off the structure suspending over the deep breaks and basins. Be aggressive on the jigging to attract them in.

Temps are going to start getting up there and we may even see the sun this week! If the weather decided to finally cooperate we could see the fish become much more active. The ice should go fast once the sun starts beating down, but hopefully we'll get a good day or two of late ice yet!

We've been hanging in a weird weather pattern over the last couple weeks and just can't seem to get locked into a late ice rhythm. Travel conditions on the ice are fair, but it keeps bouncing back from slushy to crusty out there which makes things very unpredictable. Lighter ATVs and Snowmobiles seem to be [...]

We got dumped on yesterday with the final snow total coming in around 10" of heavy wet stuff! Definitely more of a psychological hit though as guys are still getting around on the ice okay last night and this morning. It will get a little messy as it starts melting, but the fishermen should be [...]

What a beautiful weekend we had! Sunburn usually isn't a big concern while ice fishing, but last weekend it was! While there were a good number of fishermen out over the weekend, it was surprisingly quiet for as nice of a weekend it was. The fish were biting very well!Leech Lake was producing great Jumbo [...]

The forecast is looking good this week and we should melt some snow! Right now getting around on the ice is pretty inconsistent. Some areas are very easy with trucks and ATV's but some areas are tough with slushy and/or deeper snow. We could use some good sunshine to make water and get it flowing [...]

We melted a bunch of snow over the weekend, but we just got a 3-5" of light snow overnight! Temps are supposed to stay fairly mild so we should see the snow settle right down pretty fast. Getting around on the lakes has been mostly okay, but there are some tough spots where older drifts [...]

Fishing Report, March 2nd 2018

An update on the travel on the lakes is it is much better than it was at the beginning of the week, but it still is tricky  in spots where there was old drifts. Once temps get higher in the day and the crust thaws, you can get around decent depending on the vehicle. Temps [...]

After getting more snow this week than we have had all winter, it looks like we're headed to late ice fishing. The next couple weeks are looking to be highs in the 30s and higher so we're going to see a lot of that snow settle down making it easier to get around. The next [...]

We're calling it the dog days of winter... Currently the reports have been fairly slow. Last week was good, but it slowed down with the north winds on the weekend. We were just dumped on by 6-10" of snow over the last couple days as well. We're expecting things to remain slow until later in [...]

It has been a cold week in the Hackensack Area! Fishermen have braved the cold though, and we were surprised at the number of people heading out this last weekend. Fishing has been so so with the saving grace the steady temps. If you had a nice warm fish house to sit in it was [...]
