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

I'm planning to fish andrusia next week for perch and eyes.

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 scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
