Albert Lea or Fountain Lake

crappie patrol

Just wandering what kind of effect the fish kill had on Albert Lea Lake. I've heard people have been catching fish done there but is there any size. Fountain lake I've heard it's been producing a few eyes there, but don't know if there is any truth to it. But I've only tried there once during the day near the old shoreland heights beach, and that was early afternoon. Any information would be appreciated as I've hooked my niece and nephew on ice fishing and I would like to see them catch some fish weather it's eyes or panfish. Thanks again

crappie patrol

had a very productive evening. Fished by the old beach and me and a buddy caught numerous crappie and 2 walleyes(16 and 19 inch) Crappies were anywhere from 8 to 12 1/2 inches. Kept 16 between the 2 of us. We were fishing by a clam 6800 that looks like it has been abandoned, the roof was caved in from snow and it looks as if it's been that way for a long time. The depth was 8 1/2 to 9 feet. Caught the crappies off of ratsos tipped with spikes (4p.m. to 8p.m.) these were suspended from 4 to 6 feet. The walleyes I used a swedish pimple irredescent in color tipped with a head of fathead.Both walleyes were caught around 5:30 to 5:45 and 6 inches from bottom . Hoping to head out there tommorow about the same time.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      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.
