Detroit_Lakes_Fishing

Please don't throw the small sunfish on the ice!! That's my lake too. If you don't enjoy catching small ones, move and try to locate some bigger fish. Catching and releasing fish is more of a rush than the old mentality of keeping eveything you catch. That's hard for some people to comprehend, but think about it. If everyone goes out and keeps everything they catch, what are you going catch in the years to come? Freezer stockers and feed the neighborhood fisherman need to change their ways. Please respect our Resources. Thankyou.

My wife and I were up 12/15/02 in Cove Bay. There must have been 20 - 25 perm. shacks out on the ice. There were also full - size trucks out and about! We were fishing in about 12 feet of water, and the perch are biting! Have heard Walleye's are hitting in about 17 feet of water!

Upper_Red_Lake

The fishing started to pick up a little over the weekend with a few more people out to try. A couple differant reports of over 20 crappies caught by some groups. Right now were going out about 4 miles to about 13 feet of water. There is between 10 and 15 inches of ice just about everywhere. We have not been letting bigger trucks out yet, hopefully by the weekend with any luck we should have a road for all trucks as long as the weather cooperates. Had another report of a guy that got 5 crappies between 5 and 6 PM and the rest of the time he caught around 30 walleyes with the biggest being right around six pounds. The future is sure looking bright. There has been plenty of action and I expect that the fishing should just get better from here out. The northern fishing has been hot of late with three reports of 40+ inchers and another one that was so big that it wouldn't fit up the hole. It should be a good next couple weeks so make your plans to come experience Upper Red Lake.

Maple_Lake

Fished Breezy Sat. afternoon/evening I got the usual-sore buttox and a wet arm-the other guys a few crappies and one walleye. Ice seemed pretty decent. We walked down from the road by one of the Resorts that was closed for the season, when we got back from walking off the ice there was a note on two of the three rigs that were parked there asking us to not walk/park by there again because they were "closed for the season". Makes a person feel pretty welcomed with those types of messages. I'm sure the county sherrif would just love to answer that call and cite some people walking off the lake in the dark for trespasing through a closed for the season boat launch area.
