No Riggers

3 posts in this topic

Looking for some advice for my father and some old timers (no to insult anyone) he is taking up to the big lake. He does have a good size boat but no riggers and the guys he is going with probally will not be into the lead core thing. Maybe some good bait fishing spots out of the south end on the east side that might be a good choice this time of year.

Jigs, and minnows on top, or along side of the rocks. Use your graph to find the fish, and work 'em. As a suggested area, try Arnesens reef,Gull rock reef, or 12 mile reef. If you fish out of Zipple, try the open water just outside of the river bouy. Fourmile bay, or the gap if fishing out of the rainey river area. good luck and tight lines<><

I agree with 2 Pounder. Try Arnesen's reef. A few weeks back, all the fish were on the edges in 28-30 feet of water. Stay as close to the reef as you can, but stay in the deep water. The fishing isn't fast and furious, but you will get some. There are some big fish out there too.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
