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;)

      169 overpass (293rd or county 9) north of Zimmerman...take the off ramp and go east (right) to county 19 take a right going south through the S curve and hang a left at the end of S curve on 289th Ave take that about 2 miles to Blue Lake Dr take a right and then take your first left a couple blocks later to the landing.

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.
