The warm weather has arrived and the lakes are opening fast. Boats are getting on most of the lakes where the docks have been put back in and the coming weekend's forecasts of 70s should get many people out to enjoy a sunny day of wetting a line. Very little ice re...

My confidence from last week that I'd be able to get a couple more trips onto Stockade for pannies was shaken a bit with another trip there earlier this week, which just went to show me, that even an educated prediction is never a guarantee when it comes to late ic...

With a cold spring, delaying the warming of local waters, finally able to get a boat into the water and get the open water season underway. Waters are still only in the 40’s, winds are constantly blowing, but casting a long rod, makes it all worth finally getting start...

A welcome onslaught of colder weather (for those that enjoy it) has descended upon the Hills region over the last week and has extended the hardwater for at least another couple of weeks, possibly three if temps don't stay too warm going into next week.

With warm weather pushing into Sunset Country this week, we decided to take the opportunity to target some spring walleyes on Rainy Lake. We found a decent concentration of fish holding on main lake structure in 28-32 FOW. The only issue was with the unstable weather,...

The ice season here is on its way out, if not already in certain areas, and trying to take advantage of these last days with northbound road trips. Typically, this time of year, the fishing is outstanding as they are grouping up and once you find those roaming schools...

March is a magical month on the ice. So many opportunities for so many species, combined with longer days and warmer temps can make for the perfect storm to chase a plethora of game fish. My good Friend Cody Mundy from Iowa and his brother in law Steven and Cody’s t...

It's mid March and the late ice run is on......right? Well, you would think so,but the way the conditions of the ice would get you think we are still in February. We have 28+ inches of ice on many of the lakes in the Alexandria area and with the extended forecast i...

When you have so many flags go off, bonus fish becomes the targeted fish of the day. I've been getting out to chase Bluegill a lot more frequently, I dare say I am addicted. I have been neglecting the Clam Arctic Warriors on a lot of the outings, just because I st...
