Ice fishing has started on Emily, Reno, Mary, Westport and Waska. Sounds like 3″ inches of ice where they have fished. Certainly not even 3″ so be careful. Mary has been sunnies. Reno and Emily has been walleyes. Waska has been mostly crappies. Will continue to report on the ice conditions as I get the information.
There is ice fishing activity on the northeast bay of lake Reno. Waska froze over completely last night. Emily and smaller shallow lakes will see ice fishermen this weekend!
We are inching closer to hard water fishing. With more cold weather predicted for next week I think the small shallow lakes will have ice. I will pass on all updates on ice conditions.
No reports or activity on any area lakes. We continue to gear up for ice season.
Activity on all area lakes has slowed due to the lousy weather. Seems like we have fought the weather all year. Very few fishermen and even fewer reports. Lots of people have put their boats away and are thinking ice fishing.
Finally some good reports! Waska walleyes are being caught using jigs and minnows. Fish the points and hard bottom areas in 12-16 feet of water during the day. Troll cranks in 6-8 feet of water in the evening. Still catching northerns during the day on Waska. Emily has been good for walleyes from shore in the evening and after dark. Use suckers and bobbers on Emily. Walleye and crappies have been good on Reno. Miltona Ida and Osakis are other lakes to try for walleyes. North end of Osakis has been good for sunfish.
Same as last week. No reliable reports. Lousy weather.
Miserable weather has slowed any reports. It seems so few fishermen have been fishing this past week, there is no accurate report.
Walleyes have slowed down on Waska. Reno seems to be the best lake in area for walleyes. Northerns and bass are active on Waska. Check Miltona and Mary for walleyes. Water continues to cool down so fishing should improve on Waska.
Walleye activity on all area lakes continue to improve. Hope for a long fall and lots of good walleye fishing! Sunnies are still active on Waska. Not much to report on other species of fish.
