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.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
