DULUTH, Minn. -- Chris Johnson had his hands full. Sitting alone in his fishing shelter Tuesday afternoon on Lake Superior, his fishing rod was bent in a serious arc. His rod tip was pointed straight at the bottom of Lake Superior 100 feet below.
According to state regulations, fish houses on lakes in the southern two-thirds of the state, basically on an east-west line from Moorhead to Duluth, have to be removed by 11:59 p.m. Monday, while the northern part of the state has until 11:59 p.m. March 17.
DULUTH — A potential ice fishing world-record lake trout caught by a northern Minnesota man earlier this month has been confiscated from a Duluth taxidermist by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
The Minnesota Deer Hunters Association is moving ahead with efforts to mount a broad deer-feeding effort in Northeastern Minnesota, said Mark Johnson, executive director of the group. MDHA has sent out emails seeking bids for producing the food, Johnson said.
EVANSVILLE, Minn. -- Melby artist John House is a duck guy at heart.
He was 8 when he tagged along with his dad on a hunt for the first time. Almost from that day, House has been able to close his eyes and envision everything that waterfowl hunters love about sitting in a duck blind. He has long been able to put brush to canvas and paint a waterfowl scene simply from memory.
Unusual catches always make me wonder, so I had to do some checking this week when Arnesen’s Rocky Point Resort on Lake of the Woods posted photos on Facebook of two crappies that were caught recently in one of the resort’s rental houses.

Limits of walleyes and saugers are still being caught, with more tullibees and jumbo perch in the mix along the south shore, as well. Morning and evening action has been best in 15 feet of water, while midday fishing is most consistent on the mud flats in 28 to 34 feet. Some resorts have moved out to the reefs such as Knight, Bridges and Starren Shoals and found fish. On the Rainy River, walleyes are hitting in 17 to 19 feet toward the mouth of the river. At the Northwest Angle, walleyes, saugers and jumbo perch are filling buckets in 27 to 29 feet, and crappies continue to hit adjacent to deep bays in Ontario waters.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association (MDHA) are planning listening sessions on deer population management, to be held around the state later this winter.
