Zimmerman, MN?

6 posts in this topic

Hey folks! I'll be spending this weekend in Zimmerman and was wanting to wet some ice lines. Anyone know local lakes in the area I can try? Any information is appreciated. Thanks!

If you want walleyes, check out Briggs. Pan fish, I would try little Elk or Ann. if you are in Zim town, I would go to the grand daddies of lake, Mill Laces. It under an hour and cove bay out to Sprit island is a great area. You have a chance at a limit of perch or a trophy walleye or musky.

Good luck.

little elk was producing crappies and a occasional eye but over the weekend it becomes a zoo. I haven't heard much about blue or ann. you could also try green lake that is east of princeton on hwy 95. good luck and let us know how you do. it's going to be cold this weekend brrrr!

Might have a chance at a big gator(pike) at Fremont as past history has shown.Going to try to head over there myself in the next few days.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
