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.

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
