You don't have to go far there is nice crappies in both Little and Big Pine. We also have a cabin on Litte Pine, and will be up there fishing this weekend.

I've never fished Little Pine on the ice, but I've caught some decent crappies on the open water so I'd imagine they're in there. My mom has a place on the North side and one of these winters I'm going to hit the ice!

I to have a small cabin on Little Pine and have never fished it in the winter. Have never even driven by the lake from November to March for that matter. We mainly spend the early and late seasons fishing from our dock for walleyes, but over the last couple of years we have gotten 4 nice crappies ranging from 13-15 inches. Kind of crazy. Does the lake get hit pretty hard in the winter?

No,Big Pine gets fished a lot harder. You will not see the big towns like you do on other lakes which is nice.

The crappies were a total shock to us. We pretty much always use shiners and that is what we got them on. Where abouts do any of you guys have your places?

Yes it is. We are also on Benny Lane. Fishing this weekend was ok. We did pick up a couple of crappies, a lot of perch, and a few walleyes. Where on Benny Lane are your cabins? Ours is on the south end close to where it dead ends. If any of you know who Benny was our cabin is right next to where he lived.

My place is in the middle of you guys. Old fire number was like 106 or something. Not sure what it is now. My family actually has 3 places all right next to each other. One little cabin, a nice log home and then a house next to that.

Hossienda, we're old #102 so we're just down from you. We're right next to the place that burned down 3-4 (or it could have been longer, time flies) years ago that still has the huge garage standing.

Jw, I know where you are talking. It is my little cabin, Trossen(place with the sailboat) then Pauly's where it burned. Stop by for a beer this spring if you are up for the opener or putting the dock in.

Sounds good, I'm usually up there with 1 or more of my kids for opener. You usually have quite a group up there as well. \:\)

wplatehunter - how was the ice on LP? More specifically, how's the driving condition of it? I've got a day off this week for fishing and I may come up for the day. I don't have a sled or wheeler, and I don't necessarily want to hoof it. Any help is appreciated.

The ice is good. I was driving my full size truck on both little and big pine with no problems. The only thing I saw on little was a pressure ridge, but we were able to get around it. The snow close to shore was deep, so I would not drive to close to shore. You will be able to see where people were driving. Good luck fishing. We might come up next weekend. If you are going for walleyes just a heads up they stopped biting shortly after it got dark.

Thanks for the report. I won't be able to make it up there tomorrow, but hopefully before the end of the season in a few weeks. I'll be up at my other up north haunt this upcoming weekend.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.  
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

        Ya, I Was corrected already. Sorry.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
