Tips?

8 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I don't get out much with work being hectic, and the last few times out have been very slow, if not unproductive at all. Was curious if anyone has had any luck in the Mankato Area? I'm not looking for your hot spots, just an idea on which lakes they still may be biting (panfish). I'm heading out tomorrow evening and just looking for a quick point in the right direction. Thanks all!!

Try Duck Lake. Not the biggest ones coming out of there, but they will keep you busy.

I have to second Duck Lake, not much for size but the bite has always been there when I have been. Jigging with a shrimpo or a small silver and red pimple tipped with waxies or gulp has produced everytime, best of luck!

Haha, I appreciate the info! The last few times out have been to Duck and has been a real success- hardest part is keeping at least 1 line down when schools are moving through (both lines have a bite at the same time- a guy can lose his rod that way!)

I was out there a couple of weeks ago and caught a couple of nice pike.

Anyone heard anything about Crystal? I guess that's where we may be heading (If you'd rather e-mail me as to not ruin a good thing going, I promise not to forward anything that I don't find out myself... doughnut@hickorytech.net)

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
