May 15th; I made it out for the first time this year with the big boat and she was happy! Getting a limit was a two hour, relaxing great time. The walleye were 16 to 20 inches and my dog Bud was at the gunnel to help net each one. I used a white 1/4 oz road runner jig with a green and white gulp minnow. A slow retrieve in 2 to 8 feet of rocky shore line. The fish will respond to warming bays for the next two months. I have lots of openings. Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 c

May 10th; The fishing is good. We have 2 guys in camp. They fished today in a rainy drizzle. They caught 5 nice walleye and 4 northern. They were in a boat. I tried it one evening at dusk. I made a dozen casts from shore and had a 22 inch walleye and one northern. The fish will respond to warming bays for the next two months. I have lots of openings. Good fishing and good luck.

April 29th; Last week we had lots of rain (3 inches). The walleye and northern, were biting well. One guy found some giant bull heads. All fishing from shore. The lakes and pot holes went up good. The sponing is over for walleye and northern for about a week. The fish will respond to warming bays for the next two months. I have lots of openings. Good fishing and good luck.

Does anyone know where you can buy a half pound or better yet a full pound of leeches in ND? They are sold all over in MN and WI. I can only find them by the dozen or three dozen in ND??

Thanks

I agree. Lots of quality people in ND. I have been lucky, I have not run any problems. I have fished for 40+ years in WI and I have been checked by a warden once. I was in ND for two trips last year and got check three times by the same warden (Eric something). Pretty by the book, but professional. All legal so no problems.

I have a June trip planned and I am working on a July trip too. Our group is also going to give Northern MN a try and Devil's Lake a try too.

Your right but the nonresident is getting the blame for taking to many fish while the resident has unlimited possession I have seen this a couple years ago on a road that the fish were biting it was nothing to catch 100 fish in a day while we were there I seen resident take their limit every day for the five days I was there and it was the same people every day the difference is I had to catch and release While they got to keep. But that's the law right now maybe it will change maybe not . But I will still come out I am there at least 3 to 6 times a years and spend on the average 500.00 a trip don't get me wrong I have met a lot of really nice residents but some resident don't like us coming but they will have to get use to it I got 3 trips so far this year After all that. Is the ice gone yet around Ashley,Lehr ?? Might have to come out early. Thank you. Jigginco , Barefoot. And Summersoff

I agree with the change in limits from 80 to 40. Wish they would have did something to the unlimited storage limits. Oh well, to the victor (or resident) belong the spoils. Now ND and MN have the same possession limits for panfish and sport fish, correct?

In my opinion, 40 Perch is plenty. If you are going fishing anywhere just to fill your freezer, you are fishing for the wrong reason. Yes, residents and non residents have the same "daily and possession" limit, but residents also have an "unlimited storage" limit at their "permanent residence." Therefore this change in regulations will have a minimal effect on residents. More likely than not the guides/outfitters/resorts around the state will feel the effect the most...

Hipster. I was out the 10th-21st. Gave up on mushy ice after the 12th and shore fished the 13th. Launched boat in a small bay the 14th and did well on walleyes and norts, couple nice perch while watching the wind bust open the main lake. Never did get boat out onto big open water due to high wind/waves. Stayed in close. Most lakes were wide open 16th. Then turned back to winter with sleet, snow, wind, freezing cold temps. Not enough to freeze up the lakes though with the high winds. Cold enough to shut down the fishing though. It is open water season! Be careful what you ask for. On shallow, fertile lake with potential for jumbo perch, sometimes reducing the take with restrictive bag limits results in many more perch,,,,,but they end up all at 6". Have seen it happen. Maybe some of the people worried about how many fish are being caught should talk to the fisheries biologist? I have. There are many more lakes full of jumbo perch than you imagine. Most of them never get fished at all because everyone goes to the the popular lake and pounds them. A little exploration may paint you a different picture.
