Section 10 and 12

8 posts in this topic

My brother wants me to take him fishing on thursday and wants to try these lakes. I was wondering if it is worth going or should I go to another lake. He has never caught a fish during the hardwater season so I don't want to take him there if they are really bad. Don't want any spots just some info.

I live on 12 and it has been really slow this winter. We have caught a lot of small fish but nothing like other years. Depending on the day 10 has put out a few good pan fish. Good luck!

I beat the snot out of the fish on 12 ,but they were all cc's.

Ripple has some nicer fish.

I hear alot of good stuff about ripple, I might have to try that on the same day. I don't usually go that far away from my local lakes so I might as well make a day of it. I heard that ripple is best early morning is that true?

Yes it's better at the front end of the day.

My good friend goes and limits out in no time.

Go with small baits though.

Sounds like a good time hopefully we catch some fish on thursday. Went out tonight on a local lake but it was so windy it wasn't even fun then after being out there an hour or so heater stopped working so we left with no fish.

Just a quick question about ice on 10, 12 and ripple. Is it drivable or are there springs to watch out for? Crappie Keith, I see you like plastics and fakes, I am thinking about switching to this methods any hints on kinds or presentation?

just stay away from the river inlets & outlets.

Cory,there's so much to say about your question.

Getting small and controlling your size & color is the best part of artificials.

there's a post somewhere I believe about working the water column you should read.

      First place to look would any of the local dams. Gull river, Mississippi, Crosslake, all have fish throughout the year.   There are a few piers to try as well.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?
