LAKE FRANCIS, AND MADISON LAKE

10 posts in this topic

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.

      Just got back, Warroad access is foot travel only two trucks broke thru on weds morn. Went to Spring Steel on weds it was drive out at your own risk they had a truck break thru tues. eve, I walked out in the little bay there maybe half mile out 7 hrs 1-flag-1-fish 34.5 at 230 that was it did get to see a truck break thru just one tire but they had alittle trouble getting out. Today walked out of Warroad did not need the auger found plenty of open holes. Fished till 100 no flags there were other people out and they were as busy as I was. By SS the ice was 2 feet  but the top foot is getting soft I seen atvs out . It was nice day on the lake yesterday I heard 66 in town also I had a critter attach it self to my sucker today that I did not know was in the lake, a lamprey. I hope this helps you guys be careful out there and good luck.  Stay Safe Good Luck   Bear55

      Andi and I made it out to a local river for a few hrs.... White suckers are running in force. We must have gotten 20 each.

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.
