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.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.

      February 27th, 2017:
        We just got back from checking the river about 4:30pm and the temperature was around 28 degrees.  They are calling for some colder temps at night for the next few nights and we noticed with this change of weather it has caused the open water at Birchdale to freeze back up.  I could not see much open water when looking east at the Birchdale Landing.  When we went to Franz Jevne the water seemed to be moving pretty fast and it was still open there.   The photos where you can't see water is Birchdale Landing showing it froze back up and the ones with water are from Franz Jevne
