Bad Medicine but no Jon Bon Jovi

6 posts in this topic

I have fished Bad Medicine during summer for the Rainbows and have had a great deal of fun catching them. Any hints or tips on catchin eyes through the ice? Clear, cold and deep water, where does a guy start?

Ive had luck with them on ice in about 20-25’ of water, I think it was more luck than skill that I caught them though. Find rock on bottom of course, and like any trout fish structures, they like cover. I like bad medicine lake…do you know how it got its name?

Thanks for the updates. Can you be more specific with technique? Dead stick or Jiggin? Size of bait? Type? A preferred color? Any tips like this is what I am looking for. I have heard that water that clear can be a real issue for getting eye's to bite. Does that lake usually have good ice during December?

Missed out on Bon Jovi as well. They opened up some terrible seats later in the day but I want to see them too --

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.
