I need to take the kids out tubing soon, they have been on my case. Is there a lake that is good to do this on? I know when I am fishing I dont like them on the lakes I am on, thats why I am asking if you guys know of a good lake for me to go to for pulling tubes.

I would suggest Shields or Clear Lake. Both fish and fisherman seem to be down on those two lakes this year.

I have done clear lake, but heard is rather gross right now, and dont know if I want my kids in that water. Havent been to shields for a few years, but heard the water maybe pretty low, and it isnt a very big lake to tube in.

I would agree with Washington. I do not fish there on the weekends due to all the traffic. Plenty of pleasure craft, jet skiers and water skiers.

Come up to Leech Lake. I haven't seen a "tuber" in 5 years.

Thanks, I was thinking washington, but I know it is a popular fishing lake, and I hate to annoy fellow fishermen. If I was going to milacs or leech, I wouldnt be tubing, I would be fishing grin.gif . If anyone has a better idea let me know.

Thanks!

German or Jefferson are great lakes for tubing as well, a little less boat traffic in comparison to washington as well. The nice thing about these two lakes is the openess, even if there are people fishing the middle of the lakes offer some great stretches and plenty of room for the figure 8s. Have fun and be safe.

I seen something last weekend on washington that was real scary there was a boat tucked behind the grass island which was loaded with some yough kids and this jet ski comes flying wide open threw a opening on the island it looked like he missed the boat by 20 feet I was on the corner of the island and it looked like they were going to hit. Good thing I wasn't in that spot i would of been reaching for my casting rod. later I went back to that spot and another jetski does the same thing it was a yellow one the first time. Maybe we can start a new season just remember anything you snag has to be thrown back. Please whoever is doing this stop it may be fun but just think how you would of felt if you would of hit the boat i seen the look on your face when you seen the boat. you looked just as surprised as the people in the boat...

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.

      I can get to everything except ICE. You guys too?

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.
