West Jefferson (little jeff) Info

8 posts in this topic

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.

Froggy,

Thanks for the advice. I will post how we do. I will be going next weekend, so if you hear anything before that let me know.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
