I am heading up over M.E.A. week with the kids to pull in the sisters dock. I was wondering if anyone has any information on rice/round lake just west of cr48,north of cr19,northwest of moose lake. Looks good on google earth but not sure how a person gains access to the lake. I looked on the d.n.r. web page but it doesnt show an access to the lake. We do hunt on Grave lake but it is very slow every year. Usually lucky to pick up 1 duck. It is the only weekend we go up til Nov. deer hunting. We hunt/fish all weekend for ducks/grouse and deer.

Maybe someone has some other ideas of areas we should concentrate on for ducks or grouse.

Thanks,

Ron

Ron,

That's a refuge, no hunting there, but it hold tons of ringies, so any of the lakes around there may be good, but I've never hunted that area. Birds are few and far between in this area, unless you're getting off road and back in the hiding spots.

Ron,

One lake that we have seen many ringers and mallards on is Zinny Lake just west of Bowstring off the Alder Road. It can be spotty, but with the weather moving in, it may be worth a look. It is a little work to get to the water, and there is a logging road on the south side. The river is just south a couple hundred yards. I never have had good luck on Graves for ducks, except for the local mallards and woodducks early. Local beaver ponds usually hold the best numbers, but a alot of work to get to. Hope this helps and we will be up there for deer season as well. Good Luck.

You are breaking my heart telling me these things. I have two kids in hockey now and have pretty much hung up the waders for the year. It is getting ridiculous starting hockey this early and running through March for the little kids. 6 months for the hockey season is a little much for 6-8 year olds. I am seeing the ducks fly over every night and just wish I could get after them one more time yet this year. Oh well. Good Luck to you over MEA up north.

I have a son with one year left in hockey(Senior). A daughter with 2 years left in gymnastics(Junior). It is tough with the sports all year. I will lt you know how it went when we get back.

I looked zinny up on maps I have. Do you get to the lake on the logging road? Or do you go down/up the river?

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish

      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
