Was going to head out to little jefferson this weekend. Does anyone know if they are catching anything out there? Folks have a cabin there but have not ice fished it for 4 years.

If you really like northerns come on out. I've lived on the lake for 5 years now. Its not my first choice to fish on. People are catching some ok sunfish and a few crappies, but don't expect much. Bring a few friends, 6 or 7 tip ups, and on a good day you will have non stop northern action.

Hey MankatoFlyer, if our lake busts on Friday we might try West Jeff for some pike. Any spots to look out for if I drive and any tips on location?

Flyer,

I was going to ask the same thing (except I will not be driving out)and where my dad should put his big house. I just am hoping to get the kid to catch some fish and I will try for hammer handles.

I have family coming up to do a little fishing. They would be very excited if they could catch some pike. Any advice where to start on this lake?

BezD40,

I have caught pike all over out there and I know I can catch them right off the third point where there is a big A frame. That is my folks place. When I fished for them I just set up over the deep water and kept the bait about 5' up from the bottom.

Froggy.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
