I forgot to include - if you do access through the tracks it is soo line policy that you stay a minimun of 4 ft. from the rails and can only be crossed at the township road. Its tight and some brush needs to be cleared, but a very nice trail (walk, snowmobile, 4-wheeler) could be at the toe of the slope for the tracks.
You are all HOT on Nottage. GREAT - The crappies are incredible, I've been out three times. Red Lake action in Detroit Lakes. But, the land owner, who believes he owns the lake. He doesn't, you are all aware of the railroad r/w that abuts the lake. I see a civil tech and a land surveryor has been on here, and I am also a civil tech in detroit lakes. I have spent A LOT of time researching and collecting info on this lake. I have the plan and profile sheets from soo line rr showing the r/w, I collected all available information from Becker Courthouse, Contacted the county rls for his records, I also went to the county engineers office and collected some plan sheets showing rr r/w. The rr right of way goes into the lake aprox. 25-30 ft for a streth of about 50ft. This homeowner no longer controls access to this lake for this reason. Soo line RR can let whoever they want on the lake through their land. Permision has to be obtained from soo line though. I has this at one time but the homeowner made such problems they said it might be best to not have the problems. So now the homeowner is back to controling the lake. I would love to get some people together and work on this. I seen the mention of a hellicopter- I checked on that and the closest place is out of fargo and very spendy. I think a plane with ski's could land though. Anyone wanting any info please email me and I will gladly make you copies of all the info I have and hopefully we can all enjoy this lake.
Well we have a decent report,the guys in the cabin Marvin and Bob have 13 and lost a few.Bruce and his buddies have 6. Brady,Chad,Joe and buddies have 18 only 2 came from my house, do I move it? They were catching fish before dark so am I on a day bite spot?Will be moving small house tomorrow and the Greek will be moving his house when he gets here. Have a full house this weekend so there will be some fish tales. Kellie will be trying for that 16 inch crappie this weekend I think she needs to try and get a 15 incher first. COOKIE
Highbanks.. Where can we get over the ice heave. Looking to go by the Rocks/ Ravens Point area. Leaving late on Friday 3/7. Thanks
This winter won't let go!! I'm hearing they need 18 inch extensions on Lake of the Woods, that's some thick ice. I'm done for a while. I think I'll wait until we are down to 6 inches (maybe 8) and then I will go after some crappies and sunnies!
So, I'm sorry I don't have any "hot" reports for you, but after such a busy winter it's time to take a little break! No, I'm not one of the lucky ones that get to go on a vacation. The furthest south I'll be going is Lake City, Mn.. I'll be going down there with my buddy and fellow guide Lee Johnson to try and find a couple of boss gobblers!!
If you are looking for some good panfish lakes you might want to try any lake in the area! Take your pick, they all have good populations!! Everyone has their favorite, but all are great!
Tip of the week: Get rid of the cabin fever and head to the boat show!!
Have a nice weekend,

Need a little help! Coming up with 3 others the last weekend of March. Need to find a room (hotel,motel,etc.) for 2 nights maybe three. (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) If anyone has an idea it would be greatly appreciated! P.S. was up last weekend and did very well with GLOW GREEN around NO ONE but our group of 9! Good Fishing!!!
DJA you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Last time I measured there was 32 inches of ice. Bring extension and use it . Baumer it is not in the 2003 regs so you do not have a drinking problem yet. Just like to wish all the fishermen good luck this weekend, seems it takes three moves on average to find fish unless your lucky enough to hit them on the first spot. COOKIE
Cookie, how thick is the ice? Will I Need an extension? Were can I look you up to find the "Hot-spot" Thanks DJA
DJA If the weather is good I would atleast stop and try, when you get into them it is unreal. Pre fished 3 different spots in the last 2 days and now have a spot for the Greek and his sweety. 3 cold attemps at finding them, the wind was unbearable but the sunrise was awesome. 2 gorgeous sunsets the last 2 nights. Some of the wifes family is coming this weekend and would like to see them catch some fish, as I have eaten the last of mine. Have 2 in the cooler I caught today so I can show them what they look like. COOKIE
Thinking of bringing Wife & Kids out on Red for 1st time this Sat. Already have a place to stay & fish on the Rainy. Any advice? Is the bite-on at Red? or stay with original plan and fish the river? HELP!
Cookie, New Limits....Found it... You are correct. Would have been nice if they put that in hard copy regs I was carrying around last weekend... Unless I just looked over it.... Oh well. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the beer...
Just got off Red tonight. Solid bite that started early. Set up at 5:30,my brother had 2 before I got mine down. We were done at 7:20. Did I happen to mention Rat Finkie (Pink) Don't forget about ol' Hudacs.
Cliff, It's hard to predict how late the ice will be good. I'd say your chances are pretty good this year of being able to drive on the lake into early April, but things can warm up fast, so keep an eye on the weather.
Was wonering what week that is the last you can drive on Red Lake. Plan on coming down late March to early April. Any good guess?
Honzy THe snow is wind blown,so it is hard.I would say 4 to 6 inches where it isn't drifted. Where I put my house today there is 2 inches of compacted snow.
The dnr website says the limits change May 10 03 it is under new releases . COOKIE
Fish trap I was wondering where you went out of and how far out you went on Tuesday when you caught so many. How much ice is there, and which jiggs worked the best. Thanks
Since the Crappie season is continuos, the limit change to 10 was effective on March 1st, the same time as the new reg’s are effective.
The new limits don't go into effect until May 10th. (walleye opener)

Does anyone know what the acutal crappie limit is right now. I heard on the radio that the limit changes take affect on the May 03 opener. However, others say the crappie limit of ten was effective March 1st. Does anyone know for sure????

could anyone tell me how the perch bite is on Winnie? Six of us are coming up on friday the 7th, and fishing on the 8th and the 9th. We are probably gonna fish out from Highbanks Resort. That is the only place we have fished on the ice! My buddy was up there three weeks ago and got a couple dozen 10 inchers! Is there still some action out in 30-35 feet of water, and what are the hot jig colors? Any response would be great! Thanks!
Walleye/sauger closed April 14th on LOW--Check the MN/Ontario border water regulations. Limit is 14 walleye/sauger in combination, of which only 6 can be walleyes. Check your regulations to make sure!
