11-87

i'VE BEEN TO THESE TWO LAKES A COUPLE TIMES WITH THE KIDS AND PULLED A FEW SUNNIES OUT OF THE WATER, BUT I DRIVE FROM ROCHESTER TO GO UP THERE.

WHAT HAS THE FISHING BEEN LIKE ON THESE TWO IN THE LAST FEW DAYS? I'D LIKE TO GET UP THERE AGAIN BEFORE THINGS CLOSE THE END OF FEB.

My guess is 11-87 is referring to the walleye/pike season which will be closed startng the 25th.

I fished them both yesterday, we caught a couple on madison. We marked tons of fish on both lakes but just couldn't get hardly anything to bite.

I was at Duck saturday afternoon/evening and we caught enough crappies to keep us busy and one sunny....we were away from all the houses in 15 feet...The crappie were average but still fun.

I'd focus my efforts towards German and Jefferson.

Hit Clear in Waseca. South east end has been good. The 8-9" sunnies were stacked with a few crappies mixed in this weekend. Using perch diamond jigs with euros worked best. Also always a good possibility for the pike on tip-ups when they are biting.

      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.
