Minnesota Outdoorsman - Minnesota Fishing and Hunting Reports



Pages: [1]
On the south end... Nice mix of walleyes and saugers with some big walleyes as well.  Most fishing in 30-34' of water.  Try and get away from traffic.  Some good reports in 15-20' morning and evening.  Ice thickness pushing over 36" in most areas being fished, extension for auger needed if not with resort.  Rattle baits effective to pull fish in.  Keep jigging lines moving.  Electronics very helpful.  Some nice walleyes again suspended this week.  Fish houses on ice through March 31, walleyes open through April 14, pike season open continuous.

On the Rainy River...  Lots of current in river.   Ice is thinner than normal for February.  Area around International Bridge in Baudette not safe due to construction of new bridge.  Snowmobile trail on river is open and marked from Baudette (downstream from bridge) to lake.  Stay on trail for safety.

Up at the NW Angle...  Best bite morning and evening.  Nice mixed bag of walleyes, saugers, perch, pike, tulibees and eelpout.  Most fish coming from 22-30'.  Gold, glow red and other glow colors best.  Downsize jigging presentation if fish are sluggish.  Snowmobile trails from south shore across lake to Angle are marked with fresh snow.  The ice road from Young's Bay to Flag and Oak Island resorts is open.

CCI Releases New Quiet & Clean Semi-Auto Ammo

The list includes:

  • VNT 17 Mach 2 17-gr.
  • VNT 22 WMR 30-gr.
  • Quiet-22 Semi-Auto 22 LR 45-gr. lead round nose
  • Clean-22 Standard Velocity 22 LR 40-gr. poly-coated lead round nose
  • Clean-22 High Velocity 22 LR 40-gr. poly-coated lead round nose

Last year, CCI extended the range and devastation of magnum rimfire with the VNT bullet design. Now varmint hunters and target shooters can get the same performance and precision in 17 Mach 2 and 22 WMR. The new loads feature a Speer bullet with an extremely thin jacket and polymer tip that team up to offer flat trajectories, superb long-range accuracy and explosive terminal performance on impact.

New Quiet-22 Semi-Auto drastically reduces the volume of standard 22 LR rounds, while cycling flawlessly through semi-automatic rifles and handguns. The accurate, low-velocity loads provide the sensation of shooting through a suppressor—without the suppressor—and are perfect for new shooters.

New Clean-22 uses an exclusive polymer bullet coating to greatly reduce copper and lead fouling in the barrel—without leaving a residue. It also cuts lead buildup in suppressors 60 to 80 percent. Both the Sub-Sonic and High Velocity loads feature a 40-grain round nose lead bullet with geometry that’s been optimized for accuracy. With dependable CCI priming and consistent propellant, Clean-22 provides flawless cycling through semi-automatics and all 22 LR firearms.
