Pepin

9 posts in this topic

Heard there was a buzz surrounding lake pepin a few years back. PEPIN near Montgomery that is. Rearing pond. I drove past this pot hole and never bothered to fish it. Someone I know claims he boats it in the fall. Is this lake worth trying?

eh idk if its worth it anymore it has a winter kill every couple years and if your not on the walleyes usually you wont catch any its hard but thats just my opinion.

Well, you already know the rearing pond thing, so its only good once in about 3 or 4 years. I have not been out yet this year, but I've had very good luck in the past. The eyes do run small, usally 12-14", but they taste great, and you don't feel guilty about keeping a limit every time out because of the winter kill. I live very close and have not seen anybody out there yet.

I was out there yesterday for a while with my brother and we drilled lots of holes and we caught only a couple keepers. We also let a few little ones go. I wish we could have been out there longer, but we had prior commitments. We were out from noon til 4:00. There was one other guy who must live close cause he came with only a wheeler.

      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.
