Minnesota Fishing Report

Significant snow cover and plenty of ice still cover the lakes. Expect the snow on the lake to be soft with heavy moisture and slush underneath. Some anglers are walking out to their favorite shallow weed flat hot spots for sunfish, crappies and perch. Travel on lakes should be by snowmobile, track vehicles, or foot only. Unless conditions change dramatically over the next few weeks, it may be early May before area lakes are free of ice.
