Fishing Out of Izaty's Thur 16th - Sunday 19th w/ work crew - Eyes ?? Smallies??

4 posts in this topic

I have never fished the South end of Millacs before for Eyes or Smallies.. My time has been on North end by Wealthwood / Red Door & mainly early in the year.

Anyway - I'm not looking for any secrets - just a little info if possible.

I will be fishing with some co-workers from out of state and thought that I should drag my boat & poles up and see if anyone wanted to wet a line; post compact meetings.

Day Time fishing (I believe) will be our only option.

I really do not know if the Walleyes are bitting at all ( and if crawlers on spinners is the best option ) or if we should look for some Smallie's on live bait or cranks.

If walleyes are biting and the slot is an issue - That would not be an issue for us; as catching would be a priority and keeping not an issue.

I'm sure a few from MO and futher South have never had a Walleye on their line.

No Secrets needed - But I would accept a few helpful suggestions if any body has a direction or any past weekend experiences.

Thanks in advance - - -

You have a enought time the fishin has been slow but still catching fish. Spinners and crawlers gold hammered blades been workin for me and trolling shad raps with bottom bouncers in 20-30 fow all my fish been caught during the day just had to work for the fish I caught. I Don't bobber fish just troll but i'm sure you can catch both walleyes and smallies under a bobber with Leech's on some of the rock piles.

The walleye bite has definitly slowed the past couple of weeks but you can still get a few. Like stated in the last post, some of the rock piles on the south end are a good bet for both. Slip bobbers with a small jig or plain hook and a leech. You'll find some perch in the same areas. I'd fish shallow for the smallies and fall deeper for the perch and 'eyes, although you'll get a mix in certain depths at certain times. The south end can be great.

Gentlemen - Thanks for your info. I will get 2 or 3 poles set for each and be ready to go. I'll put lighted bobbers on just in case we have the opportunity to fish at dark.

Thanks again

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
