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.

Any new reports on Shetek or Sarah?? I'm coming up there to do some fishing and was wondering what I could expect.

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.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
