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 --

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
