Ice fishing for Pike/Walleyes

2 posts in this topic

I am interested in a December,early January trip for Pike on tip ups and spearing during the day with some late afternoon walleyes nearby. My Dad is 84 and probably cant handle any real long 4-wheelr/sled rides. Any suggestions on a place to try and timing of the trip?? thanks much for any help.

Hi Greg,

That late December early January can be a great time for Pike and Walleyes. I guide year round, and can accomodate the Pike and walleye portion of the equation excluding the spear house. Woody's would be a nice place for you to stay, and I do a lot of guiding through his resort. I have multiple portable fishhouses, as well as a 6'6 x 16 permanent sleeper decked out fishhouse. That house can sleep 4 guys. That house usually isn't placed until sometime in January depending on our ice conditions. Give me a holler if you would like to line something up! mr_rainy1@yahoo.com

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
