Northfield area ??

4 posts in this topic

I just got a new job down in Northfield, but know nothing about the area. I live in Savage and always fish Prior Lake. I would like to fish a lake on the way home during the week. I'm talking ice fishing, and would like to know if there are any half decent lakes around Northfield. I'm not searching for secrets, just lakes-thanks.

Between N'field and Savage, you can always hit Lake Marion or Orchard.

Marion produces decent walleye, and orchard has tigers in it.

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
