Anyone been fishing on Forest Lake?

3 posts in this topic

Just wondering if the Crappies have moved into the channels yet? I was out last weekend and got some small sunnies, but I would like to get some nice crappies...

sorry nobody has replied yet. have aqua-viewed the last couple days on sugar lake and buffalo lake in wright county and there were plenty of sunfish along the weedlines in 8-12 fow. when i was on sugar there werea couple of fish in shallow but most of the fish i saw were still hanging around the best weeds left. the channels in sugar are not as deep as the ones on forest,thou. maybe that helps. did you get out this weekend?

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
