shetek & sara

7 posts in this topic

Coming out to the inlaws in Tracy for Christmas. Wondering what the ice conditions are, if anyones been out, what's biting on what, when? It's been about mid-summer since I've been out on either lake. Hoping for ggod ice with all the cold weather, I'd like to take my daughters out with me. Good fishing, Merry Christmas, and a Very Happy New Year!!!

Trucker, I was on Shetek yesterday on the north end. About a foot of ice. Walleyes and northerns seem to be the action. I only got 2 eyes but others around me were having better luck.

Also, how thick is the ice?? Thanks

Went out Thurday and Friday, Tried different lakes around area and talked to people to see how things are going, Fox lake slow to dead, Bloody lake slow but still getting a few perch. Shetek lake few perch and occional walleye but slow, Sara slow but getting a few real nice perch, Lake wilson no one on the lake Sunday and did not try, Not a good sign, Overall Sara was the best lake for me to fish and keepers was the biggest. I did not get to talk to all the fisherman so there may be some other reports. If so would like to hear them.

I fished Teepeeotoh (sp??) all weekend and got nuttin. A few of the fellas around me had either a skunk or 1 fish.

boilerguy; A friend of mine got a 6 pound northern and had one brake his line and another straighten a hook on the little lake south of Iona. Corabelle lake I think is the name of it.

Catfish, they are catching nice northerns out of Lime Lake also. I think I'm putting my house out there, only more on the west end this weekend. It used to be a perch factory but the last couple years have been pretty dry. Hopefully they will come around. Only one way to find out.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
