Anything out of Dickies?

18 posts in this topic

Me and some buddies heading up the weekend of the 25th, just wondering if anyone has been having any luck with perch, 'eyes, or even eelpout. Any info will help. Thanks

We will be out of Dickies this weekend. With the cold front, not expecting a lot of action. Had to buy more schnapps to keep warm.

Why oh why does this happen every year?

I am going up too for my first trip to the big pond this weekend and looks like we will have to deal with a nasty cold front. Oh well, if I cant catch fish at least I can catch a buzz!

Same thing happened last year, on my only trip to Mille Lacs there was a huge front that shut off the fish. GRRRRRR!

I'll be there with the quicksand guy afforementioned. What's up man! They finally gave me a login! 5 times now and it's magic all the sudden.

Anyway, any Dickies people are welcome to wander to our shack and party. I mean, how good could the fishing be with a forecast of -13? I will be the guy with the strobe light on his head.

Last year out of Dickies we got 4 between 22 and 27 inches. What a blast. Amazing we caught them all out of the same hole in the fish house. It was cold last year too when we went out. Most were biting after 8:00. We saw a lot of fish on the camera but they were very finicky(sp?). We threw the kitchen sink at them, waxies, fatheads, shiners, had the best luck on a colored hook and a full shiner. Good luck.

Joey, stop in for a cocktail. We will be up there from Friday through Sunday.

Are the 8 hold houses out of dickies kept up nice and what not or what is the condition of the houses? The pictures from the website only show the bigger houses and i think those are old pictures also.

There old but they work. Don't expect them to be jumping out of the hole this weekend but you never know. I would try a smaller jigging spoon with about 5-10 grubs on it. This has worked for me in the past when thing have been slow and the fish are picky

We were in 12 ft of water, jigging minnows and grubs on hooks and all sorts of buckshots and whatever we had in our tackleboxes, 12 holes total in two four person houses. 5 fish caught, the largest caught was my 15 inch walleye. just two keeper walleyes. Light jigging motion about 6 inches from the bottom seemed to be the key to draw the fish to the lure, but most times they only looked at it and took off. I didn't see any jumbo at all all weekend on the camera. A couple dinky perch, and a couple eater walleyes, thats all. My friends went out to 30ft of water, and saw some fish but still they wern't biting. Oh well, i still had a good fridged time!

Joey, you did better than we did. Only a couple of small perch for the whole weekend. Things were real slow, with the weather we did not expect much. Drank most of our schnapps the first day. We had 6 guys in a 12 bunker. Fished hard at times. A lot a small perch on the camera. We did not bring portables do to the weather, just fished out of the shack the whole tim.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
