Angle/Flag Island

7 posts in this topic

Hey all couple buddies and my self heading up to flag island the day after christmas. Was just wondering if their are any reports coming out of that area yet. Also is their a road plowed to the islands yet. I know that all this snow slowed the ice making quite abit. Making me worried were going to have to shell out extra cash if we cant drive out. Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday.

Thanks Ron

I'm sure the roads will be fine. Dan from Angle Inn told me he has never seen a year when the ice road wasn't open on the 26th. Don't sweat it.

Are you going with a kid named Donnell? They told me to watch out for him - he's a crazy one.

I would call ahead just to be sure. As of today the road isn't open to Flag. Sounds like there is a lot of slush with all the snow. With some luck the road might be open and the ice will be OK by Christmas.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
