I just got back from a few days at Upper Red Lake

I just got back from a few days at Upper Red Lake over the weekend. The first two days were great with fish numbers over 40 each day, and a lot of fish over a pound and a half. The final day was tough, only catching three crappies. As soon as the wind started blowing the snow around, the fish shut off. Don't need an extension quite yet, but soon.

The local walleye bite is nonexistent. Waconia is still producing lots of small crappies, with a few nicer ones mixed in now and then. Minnetonka has been tough - just a few walleyes each night. I stay all night, but its nothing like it was around Christmas. We have some of the best ice we have seen in years - it seems to never end.  There are people driving everywhere, and in areas where they normally would never have ventured before. Hopefully the walleye fishing will pick up, otherwise I will just have to keep going to Upper Red Lake.

I want to say thank you to my sweet girlfriend Joni for being so understanding this winter.

If you have a fishing report of any advice you would like to give or receive, please e-mail it to me and I will put it up.

Good Luck,
