Good lakes???

3 posts in this topic

What are your guys fav lakes for smallies, walleye, crappies, sunnies, etc. Dont spill the beans too much though, I was just curious of what people were fishing up there.

I for one think that some lakes are tied, but if I had to choose... Minnewaska=smallies, Miltona=walleye, Ida=walleye, battle lake= crappies, and I always love fishing the small lakes in the area that I won't mention

Hey TonkaBass, don't count Ida out for smallies, there might not be as many as Minnewaska but they are quality size. wink.gifMiltona and Ida also have quality soze and numbers for crappies cool.gif

Osakis, Miltona, Reno, & Ottertail for walleyes. Pretty much all small lakes I won't mention for crappies. The other species mentioned I basically never target, but have caught most of my smallies on either Minnewaska or Osakis while fishing walleyes. Minnewaska definitely has a larger population, but both overall are good bass lakes.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
