Andrusia Lake

22 posts in this topic

Well, its that time of year again, where the ice is starting to work its way onto the lake. Its crazy how it all works isnt it.

I was wondering if anyone has any reports from Andrusia this year. How the summer went for fishing. We are going to be coming up spearing in Dec again, so i was curios if there was any information out there.

Thanks all for the king words.

We were there in late Sept. Great fishing on Andrusia. Nothing huge, but a lot of consistency for eyes, especially during some tough times. Some great areas out there that I wish I could come back and icefish.

it is a great area, we have been there for many years in the wintertime, stay at the resort on the lake. It is awesome fishing up there in the wintertime.

Fish 14-18 feet and fish like you would on any other lake for walleye in the winter and you'll do just fine. Not spectacular by any means but you'll catch fish.

Good Luck laugh.gif

There is a reef out from where the river flows "into" Andrusia. Tops out at about 4 to 5, drops off into 40 on one side and 30 on the other. There are numerous twists and turns of the reef, hence the spot on the spot theory. Email me and I will give you precise directions there if you would like. That goes for anyone else. I'm all for sharing grin.gif

Yes thats the point off of Joe's lodge I'm guessing.....I was going to college at BSU and was a resident of Joe's Lodge for the winter. I went fishing many days on andrusia last winter and this is a productive spot....but I found that fishing in that 14-18 foot depth does just as good as any on the lake needless of structure....although the reef could be better for early ice

Anyone spot any musky while spearing last year on Andrusia? Just curious what you guys saw as I have never tried it.

kokke,

We fished this one as well, and did fine. The one I am referring to is farther south and it is not on the maps for some reason. Funny thing too, because it is pretty large. You can almost see it from googleearth.

Bass n spear. I would get ahold of Troy Fideldy. He has a pic up on the spearing forum of a fish he got on Andrusia. He has been staying on the lake for the past year when he has been going to school. If you can't get ahold of him let me know. I will be able to. Email me at Hoytmystic@hotmail.com

With muskies in Andrusia, do they still allow spearing? I thought spearing wasn't allowed on musky lakes, or are there only select musky lakes on which spearing isn't allowed?

you can spear on andrusia, you cant spear on cass lake.

When we were spearing, there was 5 other guys with us. Each day, everyone saw a ton of walleyes, with a few monsters each day. There in the shallow water, or i should say coming from the deep water.

Email me if you like, i can hit you where we were.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
