DNR Urgers Anglers to Fish For Abundant Northern Pike on Mille Lacs Lake, Here’s How To Clean Them [VIDEO]

I've talked about this before, but it's a common misconception that Northern Pike aren't worth keeping, or fishing for.  But honestly, it's not that hard to clean them right and get the y-bone out.  Any experienced fishing guide knows this, and they also know they taste pretty darn good.  (Sometimes, better than walleye... shocker!)

It’s National Safe Boating Week, A Good Reminder Just Before Memorial Day Weekend

One week-end we're talking to the Co-Ho Salmon Anglers in Canal Park and the next week-end we see several of them have moved from casting to out-rigging.  Fishing season is in full swing.  If you're taking your boat out for the first time this year, the  MN DNR provides a list to check for safety.

Is Minnesota’s Moose Population Declining?

I can honestly say I've only witnessed a live moose in the wild once in my life.  It was just outside of Remer, MN on our way back from Walker.  He was standing in the ditch near the road lazily chewing his cud not really caring that we had stopped to gawk at him.  I guess we were gawking because you just don't see that animal out in their natural habitat very often.

It’s Our Yearly Reminder to Stay Off The Ice, Seriously!

We've had an early blast of winter with below freezing temps and snow for a few solid weeks.  That means lakes are starting to freeze over.  Which also means there will be somebody too eager to go out on the ice and break through.  It happens every year.  So, once again we'll try to remind everyone that it's not safe yet!  Here are the guidelines straight from the Minnesota DNR.

MN Department Of Natural Resources Offers Tips On How To Introduce Kids To Fishing

I have a lot of memories of fishing as a little boy, and most involve my dad and sisters.  On the opener, we would all go up to Island Lake, buy minnows and candy at Verns, and try our luck off the shore.  We didn't catch a lot of fish, but whenever we caught our first one of the year, my dad would bite the head off it.

MN Fishing Licenses Expire on Friday

We are definitely going to have another solid few weeks of ice fishing.   I'd even venture to guess with current ice conditions we could be fishing into April.  ( As always, be careful... ice can break up fast once it warms up.)  However, if you're planning on fishing past this Friday in Minnesota, you're going to need to renew your license.
