"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!!

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
