Hey guys. New to MN this year. Never fished the pond through the ice. I see several posts about the south and east and was wondering what the fishing is like out of Garrison. We have a house out of Twin Pines In early January and I was wondering what to expect. It seems like nobody really catches anything out of the sleepers, is that true?

Thanks!

Not true at all!!! I have a house out of Garrison Sports and we catch fish in the sleeper. Generally, resorts move their rentals to be on fish. You will have better luck if you bring a portable and try to get to some of the farther flats, using the sleeper as a base, but you should still catch fish in a sleeper. I don't run and gun as much when my perm is out. I figure I pay to have it on the ice, so might as well use it. Easier to drink beer too!!!

Be careful if you head out to the mud. King Dawg mentioned that south of Boot Flat there is a pretty big ice crack.

Yea. There are some bad cracks out there this year. I would agree to use the perm as a base camp and run and gun to the mud flats.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
