I have never seen or heard of an aererator out there, or seen the signs that usually accompany them. Should be able to find some bullheads though. The DNR report looks like there should be alot of pike!!

There is not an aeration system on Union.

Actually there is a good Pike population in Union. A few nice eyes too. Lotsa rough fish though, it's almost like Carp city.

I tried Union for pike before the open fishing started, didn't get a sniff. I'll probably try it this afternoon again.

went out there 2 days ago and made 2 large holes in the ice. waited all day and about an hour into the night.. the only thing that came up in the holes were 3 inch bullheads. I have done liberalized fishing before and this is not a good sign. The lake absolutely wreaks like a sespool. not sure about dora or pepin, but I helped some guys with nets last year on dora and did really well for northerns, perch, and a few eyes. I think the DNR opened union up a little to late this year. I was told that there were people down there looking with fish finders that see to the sides and they went to a different lake.. Hope they open up some other lakes before they smother!

I've caught a couple nice Pike there this past late Summer. So they are still there but maybe in fewer numbers now? And a guy I talked to at boat launch said he had caught few nice eyes too.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
