One last day of fishing before deployment.

4 posts in this topic

I have a friend who is a marine and will be deploying to Iraq in a week. I am going to get him out on a lake one more time before he leaves. The problem is that I have not had a chance to get out on any of the metro lakes beacuse I am so buisy with work. Id realy like to get into some fish. Id like to have him catch some nice crappies, bluegills. Maybe have a shot at a walleye or two. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to go, within perhaps 15 miles of plymouth. I had heard that pelican was a good lake but I have no clue where to begin.I have also heard about beebee.

you can email me at chad0050@d.umn.edu so that you dont have to put it here for all eyes to see.

thanks, I realy appreciate any help I can get, and Im sure my friend would too.

Tonka is always a good bet. I dont know about the panfish out there lately, but i have yet to be skunked for walleye. just follow the houses in known walleye water and you will probably get one. make sure your out there for the dusk bite. I usually try to get out by 3pm at the latest. if you do get out earlier bring some suckers for a few northerns, otherwise mostly shiners and some fathead bites

could always try medicine. i think your location said something about plymouth and that should be close for you.

Tonka is always a good bet. Follow the crowds and you will usually be on fish. Tell your buddy thanks and we are all very thankful for him serving our great country. Good luck.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
