Kids fishing

6 posts in this topic

I am taking my five year old son and some of his friends fishing in the Spicer area next week and I am looking for a lake that will keep them interested. This will be their first fishing “TRIP” (like Dad gets to go on) so I want them to have some success. Any ideas?

THANKS

You will still be able to get some sunnies for the kids. I had 3 kids with their dad out fishing. They were more than happy to catch sunfish. Add some bigger minnows (fatheads) and you may even get some bigger fish.

Lots of bass and sunnies on long. You will not need to travel to any other lake.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
