Ice on Little Floyd Lake?

15 posts in this topic

Has anyone been out to Little Floyd to check the ice conditions? Can anyone give anu helpful information about fishing this lake through the ice? My in-laws live on the lake and I have fished it several times. Lots of northens , and can't seem to find anything else. Anyone got any info. or tips realting to this lake? What is the ice like out there right now?

I don't think Little Floyd is on the any of the forum regulars lakes to fish list. I haven't heard many fishing reports on this lake since it got the bejesus pounded out of it a few years back. Either the fishing's great and somebody can actually keep a secret, or as I suspect, not much is happening for size and numbers out there and it is relegated to another one of the DL area's lakes of mediocrity.

Maybe someone will chime in and be able to give you a report, unfortunately it won't be from me.

Good luck if you decide to hit it.

i was up to the cabin last week to pick up my portable and seen a bunch of snowmobile tracks on the ice but no houses....yea there is alot of northerns out there my dad and I will troll one time around the lake and catch 8-10 of them some nice ones but there is a good slot up there that will hopefully get some nice trophy one's to grow within a few years. It is just loaded with sunfish i mean LOADED alot of them small but you can get some good 11-12 inchers if you can get your bait down past all them small ones, i also caught some really nice large mouths out there this summer 16-18 inches some of them but avg was about 13" some nice smallies out there too 12-18", the Eyes now there is a hard one to get out there but if you do it will be atleast 18"+ inches, and the crappies hard, hard, hard to find unless it is spring time and last spring they where nice 12"+. so good luck to you and maybe see you on the ice wont get up there much but hope to be up there weekend after x-mas. blue portable fish trap vouyger.

Good luck

Thanks for the information TJ25. That is helpfull stuff and good to know. Every time I have fished it I have caught some sunfish but nothing great like you mentioned. From my experiences there are a ton of SMALL ones in there that like to pick at your bait. The Vex really lights up with them. I will also be up there the weekend after Christmas. I will be the guy without the fish house, probably out sitting on the sled. I have everthing but a portable but it works. Maybe I'll see you out there. Would be nice to get a really nice northern out of there. Good luck.

tullibees? I have never caught one of them, have you fished little floyd for them before? other then sunnies, crappies, wallys, bass, northerns, and bullhead the only weird one I has seen on Little Floyd in Bowfin. Dead you seem to be a very good fisherman and you know all the gadgets inside and out, are you a Pro?

thanks for the laugh! tongue.gif

No, I'm not a pro. And if you ask Fisherdog, I'm not a good fisherman either wink.gif. I'm a fly angler at heart, so of course I like gear and gadgets. I like keeping abreast of all the new technology out there, though I don't necessarily utilize alot of it on the river.

It might seem like I know alot about fish, but that's just because I work for Fisheries. And as some will feel free to point out here, that means that I probably don't know what I'm talking about tongue.gif

sjburnt,

star has tullies, so do big and little pine, dahitman on this forum like to chase them there.

Other options are sallie, melissa, detroit, lida, the list goes on. of the above mentioned list, sallie and lida used to be the better lakes in the area to catch them.

check out the DNR's lake finder for finding lakes with tulibees. All you need to do is enter the name of the lake and click on the lake information link, the lake survey information will then be displayed.

You can get tullies on Long and Rose down near Vergas. Never caught them on Long, but got them in Rose about halfway down the South Arm. And by the way, DEAD CAN NOT fish at all. wink.gif
