Hello all, we are planning a trip to the V this year. Never been before. Havent been to MN since 1979, White Iron Chain. We will be after SM, LM and pike, with SM being the main target. I have gone through this whole thread reading all the posts I could find about any of those species. Thanks for all that info. We are looking at a June trip and would like to hit some smallies on the beds. Cpr only. All of our vacations lately have been post spawn, (Lake St Clair MI).
I saw early in the thread Ace saying first 2 weeks of June for the SM spawn. Then a post from a couple of years later asked about the 3rd week of June. Someone else mentioned that time could be pre-spawn to spawn. Just wondering what the last couple of years have been like.
I figure June is gonna be good anytime, but we would want to see if we can time it just right.
We are coming from OH, 14.5 hours. Have our own boat, 16 ft. Pro V Tracker with a 40 horse. Looking to stay at a place across from Niles Bay. I like the central location and the not so wide open waters as compared to further east.
Any opinions or tips will be greatly appreciated. Hope you guys can get some good ice fishing in! Thanks!
