Farm Island Lake

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I rarely get up in your neck of the woods outside Mille Lacs, but this weekend I will be at a friend's place on Farm Island. I have heard that there are Lakers in there, is that true? My buddy swears he will see some die off each year and wash up on shore.

Also, who might know of some decent areas to scout to find some gators and walleyes? thanks for the help.

Farm Island off of 169 definetly does NOT have any lakers in it. the mine pits would be a place to find some though. As far as farm island, think you will find plenty of pike just about anywhere (all 22" long fish i might add, feel free to keep your limit, there are plenty!!). As far as walleyes, would be looking at deep weed edges or out deep in the main basin. Good luck...

I banged up the bass out there today. Try those rocky points on the little islands. The bass were just crawling all over in there! Creature baits and senkos were good, but feeling bites was tough with all the wind.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
