Union & Maple Lake????

6 posts in this topic

Any one been out lately? i am thinking about heading out this weekend to maple or union. anyone been having any luck lately and if anyone could report on ice conditions it would be greatly appreciated. I have never driven on either lake and was wondering if there is any springs or areas of the lake that one should be aware of when driving out if conditions permit.

Does the ice freeze uniformly on Union? We have been taking full-size trucks on the west end as we've found about 14 inches of good ice. Just wondering if a guy could take a truck further east?

There are still a ton of "hidden" slush pockets on Union. If you take a sled or wheeler accross you should be fine and you can see where people (myself included) have taken a 12-14 inch plunge in to the slush.

I know of a few people who have had limited success in front of breezy this year. They have had to sit for most of the afternoon to catch their fish.Walleyes, crappies, sunfish, and perch were what they were mainly catching. As far as I know they are driving out there. Im not sure where they are driving on at though.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
