Go to Fremont in Zimmerman and go to the north end. Go about 40-50yds off shore and start fishing.

Your not asking for much are you?

All the lakes in the Chisago lakes area have decent populations of fish, and some size to them as well... Big Marine lake probably has the best for numbers, but not size...

as for location.. your on your own... I would search out green weeds with deep water near by.

If you are thinking about going to Lake Fremont, check out this story from the Elk River Star News:

Lake Fremont allows open fishing

Tuesday, 22 January 2008

Open fishing is being allowed on Lake Fremont from Jan. 15 through Feb. 15 because low oxygen level is endangering fish life.

“We had very low oxygen readings yesterday and today,” reported Eric Altena, assistant area fisheries manager for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, on Jan. 15. He said the lake’s aeration system will likely allow some fish to survive but noted “there are fish dying on the north end ... due to low oxygen.”

Signs have been posted at the public access and at the north end.

Open fishing means unlimited catches by licensed resident anglers in any manner except for the use of seines, hoop nets, fyke nets, or explosives.

Go there Biff and drive the north road and check out the little back bay that the culvert runs into and you will see all the devastation that is left on top of the ice......big carp and lots of little bullheads!!! I have only seen 2 people fishing the actual lake part in the last 2 weeks.....

Wow....That lake used to be really good for Pike, straight out and a little to the right from where the culvert ran in there. To bad for Fremont.

Fremont Lake....well, you can stick a fork in it, because it is done.I spent part of the afternoon out there today,and the fish are gone.I fished 4 different sections of the lake with nothing to show for it.There is at least 30 inches of ice on the lake right now.I did drive the north road when I left, and saw the channel that was chiseled in the ice by the culvert.Dead and frozen fish, carp I am assuming, were on the ice by the chisled out area.A local guy who was driving by, told me as I was unloading the atv, that he had seen carp and bullheads floating in the open area north of road a couple of days ago.Not good. Oh,well.At least it might mean bigger fish in a couple of years.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Why don't you take the free Dewalt I offered you....no more worries about not enough power...lol :-)

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
