Rick & CK find a new lake on fire.

Recommended Posts

palisade1kid

So there's this little lake that no one ever see someone fishing.

Rick & I decide to see what it is all about.

It's got some 20 foot for a max depth and a good stiff break line once you hit 10 fow.

It's only 200 acres or maybe a bit bigger.

It has a ton of lilly pads growing all around the lake.

We are tossing buzz baits right through all of those pads when this guy tags my bait on the outside edge of the pads.

It was a hard smash on the waters surface.

Picture068.jpg

There were a few more that we caught,but nothing boated were any bigger. We did manage to hook up on 2 others that spit the hook when they made their mighty leap into the air and by the looks of them they were bigger than the one in the picture.

The buzz baits started to take their toll on our arms so we switched over to a jig and sassy shad in a 3" black and pearl with a 1/4 oz white jig head.

As we trolled the pike would hit those shad like gangsters.

After around 6 or 7 -3 lb'ers I managed to hit this 33 incher.

Picture071.jpg

It was a girthy brute that gave me a great fight while I was using my Grandt 6' medium action rod.

I'll say it could take a lot more fight albeit that pike made several runs.

No leader or nothing.

I was a bit lucky with the jig placement on the side of it's mouth.

Once I saw the line was not in his teeth i really laid on the heat.

Watch the video.It's too bad the motor was running for most of the fight as that pike had my drag just a singin!

The pike seemed to be holding in the 8-14 fow.

Se we battled them right into sunset & then tagged a bucket full of small sunnies & crappies. Nothing worth keeping ,but I can tell that I fished today.

These guys were doing the same thing we were doing.

The ducklings had to be dodged of coarse on our way in.

and the sunset showed off these clouds in the most prettiest was.

What a day.

You have my number,whatcha waiting on???Those bass to get bigger?

That's no bass it's a carpet carp.hahahahahahahahaha!

I met a guy from this site & we headed out for a little rearing this morning.

His name is Brian & he's got a good head on him for fishing.

I left my locator at home ,DOAH!

So when we hit the 1st lake it was near impossible to stay out of the weed as the breaks are so sharp.

We pulled out after an hour of struggling with little fish being caught.

I decided to try that lake Rick & I had some success on yesterday.

It's a bit more forgiving as to the sharp break & we did manage to catch some fish in the hour we had left.

Here's Brian with a few pike.

Picture075.jpg

Picture072.jpg

Picture074.jpg

The action was not like what we had yesterday ,but then again we fished later in the day right into dark.

I also managed to hook up on another carpet carp too.

Picture073.jpg

All in all it was nice to meet another fisherman & it looks like we will be doing this again.

The added bonus is that Brian hunts too so I'm looking forward to some duck/goose hunting with maybe a grouse hunt thrown in for good measure.

Thanks Brian for stopping by & it was a pleasure to fish with you.

Here's a video of a pike & Brian having it out.

CK, Thanks for the little adventure. Next time I'll make sure to leave a little more time open for some slaying. It was a great time and I look forward to it again in the future.

Cool beans!

I'll look forward to that day then!

We went out for some eyes tonight.

I caught 2 stockers ,pretty slow with the weekend boat pressure & the barometer being so high.

Come fall the action should pick up ,but then hunting season starts.Too many fish & not enough time to catch them,errrg!

These fish have not seen to many presentations I'm thinkin so whatever you'll need is cool.

You only get 1 box though.hehehehehehe.

Heck 1 Scumfrog & you'd be set maybe a buzzer or a jitter bug or a spook would be alls you need.

I have tons of jigs and shad bodies.

Just found out last night we'll have familey up from Texas that weekend. So I can only fish until about noon on Saturday. Maybe we could meet at the lake and you can just run me back to the bout lunch at noon.

Why don't you just hang with them instead of spreading yourself so thin SF?

There's this problem,Mallard's gonna be up and his boat might be a tad big for the access.So that means I'll drop my skiff in there .Well there's not room for 3 big guys in that dink of a boat.

I think we could maybe get his in there ,but it's up to him not me if we should try it.I'd need a number so I can call you Fri. night to verify as we will hit it fri. night giving Mallard a visual on the access.

so do I have to confirm or can I deny????I'd laugh to see you pushin mud to get in there.The water is way down and it's not a very good access to start with.

I can only get in with a 12 foot skiff & that's a workout.

Aha! I got it.

I havent been there in a couple years.

That cabin in one of the first pics is on the NE side of the lake. There is a farmstead on the SE side of the lake.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.
    • mrpike1973
      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.
    • Ron Vroom
      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
    • Alex wilhelmi
      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,
    • Tom Sawyer
      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
