Recommended Posts

Heading upto Appledorns this Friday-Sunday and wondering where we can get some bait? What seems to work best for tipups or rattle reels at night, in case Walldoe wants a change of pace on the last weekend?? Thanks in advance Tracey

Look for the big muskie on the east side of the road. You can't miss it.

Prince Bait in Milaca. 3 miles North of Milaca on HWY 169. For your rattle reels at night put on a shiner with a red hook. If you can't find shiners just use a fathead.

Princes had some shiners left but they went very big. i had to have tony do some digging to get me a couple dozen 3-5". They are what we got all our walleyes on this weekend. We got some really nice fish.

Start checking early because most people in this area are out of shiners.

I would also plan on bringing up your own Euro larvae if you plan on using them for the perch. Seems the farther north ones goes the harder they are to find. Plenty of shops have the waxies but not the smaller version.

Thanks for help on the bait needs. We learned two things this weekend the guy at Lundeens dosn't have to worry about ever selling us bait again. On the otherhand Johnson's gets big credit for being very sociable and willing to help 4 guys who haven't fished the lake very much. Just wish we would have bought all our bait there. I will drive out of my way to buy bait there again............Tracey..

P.S.- The fishing was beyond bad but the weather was nice and it wasn't from lack of effort......

      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.

      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.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
