Beauty of a fish , A very old one at that .
Hey there whateversbitin , not strange at all , as I saw boats licensed in Wisconsin , Iowa , Missouri, and North Dakota in one day on the river this year while Walleye fishing , so why not Oklahoma ? I bet you think the cup is half empty too . Why so negative ?

Not sure about the legality, but I personally would never do something like this.

Years back northeast Mn walleye opener was delayed by two weeks so the fish could spawn late may,has this changed? To lazy to look it up.

Might need to change up your plan,say head up the gunflint trl and fish the seagull river if infact they open the walleye season up that early.



Hey snow ,

Seagull river is closed for now , closed for two weeks after the set May 12th fishing opener to protect spawning fish . Also other areas up that way are closed already .

It always seems strange to me when people are fishing the river in there boats , and some people are out on the ice also fishing . From what I know of up there right now , fish are definitely being caught by both approaches. As for your want to target bigger fish , that's a hard call , as the possibility of doing such is very good at either location . The river does offer the easier ability to cover more water to search out active fish though . On the ice the depth of the bite is a little more scattered from 20 - 26 ft or so at the moment . Now that this bite has gotten somewhat shallower than not to long ago , it does bring you to areas of the lake where the ice is very , very thick yet , from the early ice pile ups that occurred when the lake set up with ice . I just spoke to a friend that stated that not to long ago , they needed to stand on the tailgate of there pickup truck , use two auger extensions to drill through six ft of ice , wowza !! They did have a decent bite though . . . Either scenario seems to be workin now . It's gonna be a late ice out , that's looking to be more , and more for sure with every day that passes.... Get um !

No need to worry about the forks messing up the clarity and bite this year ,as all is quite behind as for the ice out progression on the river so far . The upcoming forecasted cold thru next weekend is not going to advance this process vey much either . It's a cold go out there right now , so bundle up if you go , and be prepared for issues of some sort , as "stuff happens" when it's cold out . That all being said , there are a few fish being caught , if your in the right place , and at the right time , with the right presentation . Seems to be more males at the present , but I think that's a good thing for the keeps ... Also make sure to update your self on the new border laws up there this year , as they have definitely changed ... once next week comes I think the bite willbe better with the water temp potentially rising then , at least somewhat ,and that bite won't be for long as the season closes on the 15th.... Get um !!

Has anyone had any luck catching a few late night walleyes in a sleeper house? Always nice to hear those rattle reels going late in the night.


As for the night bite at LOTW and for most lakes for that matter ,is it really depends on moon phases , and full moons with clouds , and full moons without clouds .. I know lots of folks will say LOTW is not known for a night bite , but not so fast with that one .. I have personally seen some good bites happen up there with a very full moon with zero cloud cover coinciding together . If I was to be trying for Walleye at night up there it would be under these circumstances only, most definitely.. And during cloudy , or times other than this full phase , i would probably pass on the night bite attempt . . . So book your sleeper stays accordingly ,if catching fish at night is an important part of a sleeper stay for you, and this night bite phenomenon is so very , very true at Red lake .. I always get a kick out of a week old report on what hours of the day were best for a group , well heck , I got news for you , it's a whole week later , and it's a different moon phase , it's gonna change , it's gonna be different.. Even on a extended stay trip of oh let's say five days of fishing ,for example, hot hours of the day are going to be different from the start of that trip , to the later days of the trip ... moon phase and cloud cover control your outcome , along with other factors , mainly barometer readings . Good luck guys , I hope this may help you out some.. A hot bite ends for some reason always , it's up to you to to figure out why and adjust one way or another, somehow , and doing such usually awards you with more fish frys .
