Shermans Flat

Recommended Posts

BreakTheBank

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.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
