Still ice on area lakes and late season panfishing is good on the Glenwood side of Waska. Most guys are waiting for open water and the crappie bite. Most years this starts about April 12-15. It may be later this year. I will be posting updates as we get closer. Until then, be patient!
Ice fishing is slowly winding down. Still a few diehards catching sunnies and crappies on Glenwood side of Waska. Shorelines are muddy, so use 4wheelers or walk. Other area lakes are quite. Think spring and open water!
Pretty much winding down. Still reports of sunnies and crappies being caught by Glenwood. Just diehards going now. No reports from area lakes. Ice is still good on Waska and still vehicle traffic on the lake. Shorelines are starting to become muddy.
Game fish season is ending on mixed reports. Spear fishing on Waska has been great. Walleye activity has been poor. Panfishing has been good and will be good until ice-out.
It sounds like the key word for the week is SEARCH. The best results are the fishermen who keep moving. Sunnies, crappies, perch, and northerns are being caught in 12-19 feet of water on the Glenwood side of Waska. We still have no reports from area lakes. Remember, keep moving to catch the fish!
Check reports for past two weeks and go have some fun! Waska is in very consistent pattern, with no changes. Sauk Lake is very hot for crappies. No reports from area lakes.
Very consistent! This past week on Waska is the same as last week's report, only better. Still no reports from area lakes. Get out and enjoy the good panfish and northern bite on Minnewaaka.
Sunnies, crappie, and northern pike are all active on east side of Waska. Sunfish are being caught on waxies and small jigs during the day in Bottle Bay area. Northerns are in same area, so put sucker minnow down for your second option. Crappies are best in the evening in between fish hatchery and ballroom. Use crappie minnows and glow jigs. Sauk lake also producing crappies. Have not heard from other area lakes.
Ice conditions have greatly improved this past week. Still a few areas of slush, but not too bad. This is true for all area lakes. On Waska, sunnies are biting on Glenwood side during the day. Crappies are starting to hit in the evening, and reports of walleye being caught after dark on Waska. Temendous crappie fishing on Sauk Lake by Sauk Centre. Call Fletcher's Bait shop in Sauk Centre for current reports.
All area lakes have slush and heavy snow. Water is coming up in the ice cracks and holes. Mobility is very hard. Use extreme caution if you venture out.
