Anyone on 3 mile?

11 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has been out on 3 mile yet and if there were any results. I am heading up on Wednesday morning for the day and would like to have any fishing report. Any other spots that have been hitting early on. I dont expect exact locations, just some kind of direction would be appreciated.

2 of us fished Sunday, ended up with 1 walleye from 12pm to 6pm. It was pretty slow at primetime. I only saw two fish come through between 4:30 & 6pm. Hooked both, one on a shiner and one on a rattle spoon with a minnowhead. We tried 24'-29' fow. It was tough going with the wheeler, lots of slush pockets. 8 to 10 inches of ice. Not sure how much ice was under the slush pockets. 12pm to 4pm we had a lot of fish on the screen but no takers. I'm guessing they were small perch. The aquaview would have helped. Good Luck

I was out there tonight and the ice is plenty safe.. Went out from Appledoorn's on a sled.

Marked fish around a couple humps and ended up wiht only one bite, 14"er around 5:30.

There were a few slush fields and it didn't look like anybody had fished there soo... ?? Go fast....

last night I fished the flats, the 1st mile is fine, then the next 2-3 miles is a mix between frozen slush and big time slush, then after that it is fine again....look out for little hidden pressure ridges, we crossed two, and got stopped by one big one with water coming up. Fishing was slow, lots of lookers due to the amount of bait out there, we ended up with three fish between 13-15 inches.

Haha JD...I agree with you on the go fast part, one slush pocket we hit the sled was bottoming out...kinda creepy but makes for a good adventure;)

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
