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.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
