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

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
