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)

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
