Who is all heading out to the pond this weekend?

6 posts in this topic

Myself and two friends are heading out tomorrow (Sat) at about 3:30am should at least be on the lake by 5:30am or so. So far winds out of the NE calm to 5MPH and then turning out of the SE at 5MPH high 80 to 85 with a slight chance of rain or a thunderstorm in the afternoon.

I don't know if I should head to the flats in the morning or hit up a reef like Sloppy Joe's or something. I will have more electronics than a Snoop Dogg Concert (Vexilar, GPS w/LakeMaster, Aqua-View) so finding the spots and fish should be easy. It is just what to fish in the morning and then in the afternoon.

Do I fish the flats that early in the morning with a bobber or do I hit up a reef?

Also when fishing a flat, something I have never done, do you fish on top of a flat or on the steep edges of it? I have the presentations all setup. But for the Bachelor party of sorts we are not really looking to keep any fish, just want to catch and release everything we catch. Any help would be great, thanks fellas!

I'll be there. My first time fishing Mille Lacs. My buddy who fishes there a lot is taking me on a fully guided trip. All he would tell me is that we're fishing in the mud.

Fished 7 mile flats on Thursday am...excellent fishing.

Most of our fish were in deeper water (30+) around the edges.

Lindy rigs with crawler or leech, both worked great.

caught: 28 1/2, 27 1/2, 26(2), 25 1/2, 25(2), 24 1/2, 23 1/2, 22(2), 21.

Didn't take any home but had a blast.

Good luck.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
