Avon area lakes

5 posts in this topic

I have been having some sucess on Lower Spunk for crappies, on the small side though. Hoping to put the wheel house out on Upper Spunk Saturday. Have not yet fished the lake this winter. Has anyone else been fishing the Avon area this winter?

First off nice report. I fished Upper for walleyes earlier but haven't been out there for some time. I am going to try and get out there soon and hopefully find some crappies. The spunk lakes have some real good fishing in them my favorite is Upper but all 3 are good at times. Maybe I'll see you out there sometime and we can chat!

I was out on Upper yesterday am. Seems to have been lots of early day activity, mostly portables. There has been lots of traffic (wheeler and sleds). Out near the bullrush Island people are reporting 6 - 8 inches of ice. I stayed around the south shore and found 8.5 to 9.5 inches of clear ice with about a 2 inches of cloudy ice on top. I only found a couple of small slush holes. I hope to put my house out Sunday afternoon. Hopefully yesterdays warm weather knocked down the snow and with single digits temps this week we will be driving out soon. Look for the ugly camper conversion and stop by and say hi (if we make it out).

Good luck

Does anyone fish Middle???? I caught a bunch of walleyes and crappies in it this spring and summer, and I'm thinking about making a trip out there this winter to see if I can find them again.

The ice is iffy because of the depth, a few springs and the inlet. Shoot me a email and i can give you some areas to try. gonefishing56310@yahoo.com

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
