What's the Word From 12 Mile?

9 posts in this topic

With the nice weather in our future,

I was thinking on venturing out with

the portables.

Anybody been to 12 Mile lately? Any large

cracks to contend with? Many houses out

there? How was the fishing?

I've been only fishing Zipple so far, we've

been catching fish, but need a little change

of scenery. Thanks for any info....

Later,

I have'nt been out there but a friend of mine was out there in an Arnesons hut last week and he said they plain slayed the nice Walters out there.

Looking from Babblers road there is quite the shantytown out there. If your going by sled/atv you should'nt have a problem.. Could'nt tell you if folks are making it there via p/u though?

Man oh man 2 winters now I've wanted to fish some fall spots around Clementson on the early ice and have'nt?? So many spots/fish so little time eh!

Check Clementson resorts website for the day by day scoop over thatta way. Last report I saw they were saying like 10-12 inches with some bad spots here and there.

Dutchman Doug may chime in with a conditions report for you too, he's just a coupla miles downstream from Clementson.

Winters past I've seen vehicles on the ice all over the river. This year with the current and funny ice it's a bit different! I know folks are driving on the river around the airport but I dunno if I would!

We are really mixing forums here but not too much activity on the river forum lately. If interested go to the Rainy River forum. I'll post the little bit I know.

We were in an Arnesen hut out there for 2 days on 12/29 and 12/30. First day in 25 FOW only managed to keep 7 but all nice eating walleyes. Second day switched to a house in 30 FOW and did much better keeping 14 mix of Sauger and Walleye. Probably should have done better, but not everybody in the house (4 guys) were gettin into the fish, glad I was into them, a blast. Small gold jig-a-bit and fatty got most, got a few on a Gold Angel Eye, but seemed like bobbers did better.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
