Driving on Union or Maple?

6 posts in this topic

Can people drive out on these lakes? i have never fished them and would like some help. How about the fishing on them? What is mostly caught? any help would be great.

Thanks,

I would highly advise AGAINST driving on Union. Although the ice is pretty good in most spots I have ran in to a couple areas that are pretty shaky. Another problem with Union right now is the hidden slush pockets that are 5-12 inches deep. If you got caught in one of those you would have a horrible time getting out. You'd have better luck with a wheeler with chains or a snowcat.

Talked to a guy tonight and he said they are driving on west union. The slush froze so that won’t be an issue. Light biters and they missed a few setting the hook. I would still be wary of going straight across it from the public.

Planning on heading to Union this weekend for the first time. Just wondering if anyone has any tips on what depth, lures, or time of day are working best? Are they driving full-sized trucks or just smaller vehicles? Any info appreciated!

Well we got out yesterday evening and managed 5 smaller walleyes and missed a couple. Nothing fantastic, but pretty decent considering it was our first time on the lake.

Where did you set up? Were there many houses out? I’ll have to take a drive up there and take a look. 6 miles north of me. Haven’t heard any reports from the locals.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
