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.

skip across

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.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
