Thole or Schneider near O'Dowd

4 posts in this topic

I have fished O'Dowd both in the summer and last year in the winter but what about Thole or Schneider. I never see anyone on them. Does that mean there are no fish?

There's fish, even used to be eyes stocked I believe.

Lots and lots of little Mr. Whiskers, and green sunfish. Typical mudbowl stuff.

Thole was stocked with walleyes back in the late 90's but they have all but died off due to winter kill. There are some decent pike and bass in there but they seem to be few and far between. I'v seen guys on Schneider in the winter fishing with Tipups for pike.

      Big Watab lake "St Cloud area" between Cold Spring and St Joseph. Couple smaller bodies of water in the area as well.... Mn DNR lakefinder is helpfull. Couple small steams in this area too.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff

        For this time of year you could use smaller dipseys if you don't have planer boards. Or what I do sometimes is have  longer rods towards the front of the boat and shorter rods towards the back, no dipseys or boards, and just troll that way
