Long lake in Park Rapids is putting out walleyes and some decent Crappies in the 17 to 25 foot depth range.  The night bite on Big Sand has also been strong for eater size walleyes in the 30 to 40 foot depth range using glow in the dark jigs and a shiner minnow. For good bluegill […]

Finally a true cold snap to help make some safe ice!  Nothing has changed much fishing wise since last week nor will anglers see any true heavy changes in the next couple of weeks other than better ice conditions.  While most of the smaller lakes are walkable and even able to support smaller atvs, the […]

The small lakes are finally frozen over for the most part.  The ice is not consistent or what I would consider safe.  In a week or so, that should be a different story.  However, with a little scouting and some common sense, some decent ice for walking on and some active fish through the ice […]
