Ice Fishing Cats

3 posts in this topic

What are some good metro area catfish lakes a rookie could try for ice-fishing? I was thinking...

Island lake in Shoreview

Tanners lake in Oakdale

Golden Lake in Circle Pines

Techniques? Where could I find fish? Bait? Etc...

Thanks...

i have only caught one through the ice ever and it was at community park in savage. it was a blast one of the hardest fights i have had on the ice. and i know the lake has plenty of cats, we caught a bunch in the spring

You can get them through the ice on Crooked Lake to. Just mash up minnows and leave them sitting near the bottom. They haven't been in the lake for long but they are getting in the 5-6 pound range.

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
