Ceasar, Arnesons is an all the way and then some top shelf place and you'll be love'n it out there with the nicer weather ahead. They take good care of their folks and should get you on the fishes. Them Burbots will most likely show up for you after dark too. Have fun cleaning them and be very careful where you cut!

Check out Marine Mans post, they were up thru the polar hurricane last weekend and managed to get some fish out there, and they came back to shore with all there fingers, noses, and toes too!

Boar....Saturday....Sleeping in, then grabbing snackle box and leaving home around 11am headed west, quick stop for some Barley pops on the ridge and get in-line for the big derby before noon. My wife kind of wants that funny lookin new little Chevy!

To those of you using the Zipple sleepers - if doing the shallow sleeper /deeper day house. Don't forget to put out tip-ups for the Nords. My buddy got a nice 41 incher in the shallows!!

Here is the thread and pic of his fish!!!

Boar, There were some pretty good sized snow drifts by your fish house last Wednesday, probably bigger ones by now, thought you may want to know before you get there, in case you haven't been up for a while. I just called Long Point and reserved a house for tomorrow, didn't want to deal with -27 degrees in the morning drilling holes for mine, we will return home tomorrow. Long Point said the fish have been biting good inspite of the weather. Hope you have a good weekend.

Caesar,

We're doing the shallow sleeper, deep water angling house. What time did you usually head out to the deep water house? What time did the deep water bite stop in the afternoon?

I'd love to catch a big gator on a tip up. Were you fishing with suckers or smelt?

Juan -

I will reply in my bro's stead as I taught him everything he knows anyway. We never really hit pay dirt with the deep house, the shallow sleeper was our bread and butter. The bite there was like clockwork every morning right around 7 we were greeted with the rattle reel alarm clock...first day it took us a while to get up and start hitting them with the jig sticks, but we learned after that. Once the first reel went off it was time to jig. I think we headed out to the deep house around 1030 or 11 and fished it until 2 or 3 then made our way back in to the sleeper for the late afternoon / evening bite. There was no real clock or set time, we just let the fish tell us when to head out. The deeper fish were all smaller and mostly saugers. The gators, we fished with large suckers, never tried the smelt there but they may be worth a try as well! Hope this helps, good luck up there I am sure you will have a blast!

when i do the shallow / deep i fish in the shallows til about 10 am then head out deeper till about 2 pm then back in the shallows.for the northerns we used a 6 inch sucker minnow that worked well on our tip ups. we had couple guys stay in shallows to watch the tip ups and the rest went out deep.

      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.  
    • Wanderer
      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.
    • PRO-V
      Gulp spray seems to help also.
    • Wanderer
      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.
    • Hawg
      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. 
    • PRO-V
      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
    • mrpike1973
      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
