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.

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
