Fremont Lake no limits

7 posts in this topic

Anyone hear about what's happening on fremont? I just read about it on another site. Apparently due to low oxygen levels the dnr is opening it completely. Someone was down there with a bow and stuck about a THOUSAND carp and 17 pike he counted from the road 2-5lbs. I'll ask the gent that posted the pics on the other site and see if it's ok if i share his pics.

I heard a couple of weeks ago that the fish where conjurgating by the culvert on the north side. I thought they had put a airadertor in there a couple of years ago. There's nothing in there but carp and northerns any way.

Freemont has been open for liberalized fishing since 1-15 and goes until 2-15.

There are a tons of lakes open for liberalized fishing in Meeker County. Right now 26 lakes in MN are open for this type of "fishing".

I teach at Zimmerman High School and a few of the kids have been talking about going down their with their fishing bows and doing some archery fishing. It's a good time. One kid said he shot two massive carp with one shot.

I thought I heard they took the aireator out a few years ago. Was getting too expensive for the lake assoc. They did the same thing with limits a few years back, when I heard about the removal of the AIR...

They have never removed the aireator...the last time it froze out the aireator was vandalized and couldn't be repaired during the winter and this year it is cuz of the amount of early snow on top of low water levels causing the depleation of oxygen in the lake causing a partial die off!! I went down there yesterday and it is amazing the amount of carp on the ice and how far back along the channel they have cut and caught them!! Kinda disgusting to see....cant imagine the stench in the spring!!

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
