Shermans Flat

5 posts in this topic

I purchased a home on the point by Wigwam Bay this summer and was wondering if anyone had any honey holes on the West side? Shermans flat is about 3/4 mile out from my house. I have never ice fished on the big pond so any tips would be awsome.

I think that the any flat on Mille lacs will produce fish. I love the flats!!!

jimmy, you are sitting in front of one of the best mud flats on the lake!!! I can assume by you being able to afford a pad on the big lake, you probably can afford a gps unit. This device is your best buddy on the big one. I always trek off milacs on the same trail i took out. ice is changing 24/7 due to size and shape of the lake. Cracks opening and slamming shut, you never know what to expect. back to fishing shermans flat, i love the cut and the finger early ice, fishing the deeper side of the breaks in the day and on the top during evening. cameras help with finding under water humps and saddles. there are some nice valleys on the top of the finger. Had a constant flow of "eyes" slowly moving through a long valley for about an hour or so last jan. not a biter in the school.

I have a Lowrance for the summer and an H20 for the winter with the lake master chip but I have not had the chance to use them enough to figure them out - plus the directions are like phone books written in Greek and I think I have A.D.D.

The H2O is easier to use then you think. If I can use it, anyone can. Once you have some expierience with using it, you will learn about all the amazing capabilities of this little unit.

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?

      Oohhh, I'll tell you what folks, it is just a beautiful day to be in the northland!!!   Heard that one a time or two.   Classic Country Sunday, the opening 15 minutes were the best.
