    Fishing Report It’s ON!  But not quite like Donkey Kong!  We have fishable ice (2½-3”+) on lots of area lakes, yet still open water on the larger lakes for the Musky anglers trying to get one last try at a monster.

It has been a phenomenal year with record numbers of fish along with some real giants as well.  This past week was no exception. We boated 18 muskies in the last 6 days along w...

    With the recent rain and cooler weather the water temperatures have dropped significantly and they are now in the upper 30 to lower 40 degree range. The cooler water temperatures have triggered the fall bite and the fishing this past week has been phenomenal. We have been catching lots of nice walleyes and crappies along with some very nice muski...

    The fall of 2019 will be remembered as the Musky Season of NO SUCKERS!  Last winter’s heavy snow wiped out the commercially raised suckers from Minnesota.  Record high water has made seining wild suckers near impossible.  Yet Muskies still to be caught!

    Winter was last weekend (temps lows of 28 degrees…snow…wind…).  Fall was the prior week.  Does that mean spring is this coming week?  Doubt it!!
