"Easy" bite?

10 posts in this topic

Anyone know of a spot for an easy bite? I'm taking my brother out tomorrow and we're just doing some C&R and want to know what has been pretty "hot." Duck has been decent in the past, is that still the case? Just looking for some pannies to keep us busy for a few hours before the enevitable return to hormonal women \:\) Any help would be appreciated!!

I wish there were such a thing as an easy bite! \:\/

In all seriousness, if you had decent success on Duck, I'd go back there. We're kind of going through the "mid-winter duldrums" right now IMO and any decent bite would be worth staying after.

Good luck!

The SE end of Clear Lake in Waseca is worth a look.

I agree on the Duck recommendation - the bite was still good on Saturday. Caught quite a few crappie in 17 feet of water by dropping a crappie minnow on a glow jig down about three or feet under the ice. Plenty of sunnies right on the bottom as well.

Right under the ice? Imagine that. Way to go!

East bay on Madison lake is always worth checking,with all those weeds back there dead or alive. Might be a bit early yet, but when they are there its HOT!!

Went out to Duck last night, we were quite a ways from the "village" and had pretty slow bites- my brother outfished me with black 20# test... it was like fishing with a clothesline!! Ended up catching 8 total, a tiny perch, 2 sunnies and the rest crappies, considering heading out there again and fishing a little deeper, but Madison crossed my mind too- thanks for the suggestions!!

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
