Marina fun

I headed back out to the marina in lake city yesterday morning. I fished from about 11 til 3 and ended up with quite the catches. I managed to hook into 14 crappies with the smallest going about 8" and the remaining 13 were all 11" or bigger. Four sunnies also were caught with 3 of them being about 6-7" with one of them going 9". A 13" smallmouth also gave me a nice fight. All fish were caught on just a minnow under a float. The action is good out there and I will be sure to head back when I get back from my trip.

Good job Hanson, and nice report. I'll have to make it down there sometime and join in on the festivities.

How far under the float were you fishing?

I think I'm heading down there Sunday as well. I haven't heard any fantastic reports, but I'm going to give it a go anyways.

So I took my chances on Sunday and braved the snow on the ground. I was only out for about an hour because one of my gloves flew into the lake making my hands really cold.

The results 1 12-13" crappie and one small bluegill. However I saw some other people fishing around me who had been there much longer than I had. One group had 25-30 Crappie and the other group had a dozen or so.

      Use a layer of painters (blue) masking tape on cork first, to help protect it, then apply whatever you want. Electrical tape is used by most, but I like using hockey tape.

      Mille Lacs would be a good choice. One of the resorts should be able hook you up.

      I used a self adhering tape to attach them,  but now the tape is getting sticky and a pain to use.  Any ideas what something else too use? Thanks

      Wow, that was low!   But, from someone so use to bending over-well......

      Check out the South Central Forum, or MN Metro Forum and ask there as well as the SE MN- Rochester Forum. You may get more answers there as well.   If you could extend to three hours away Mille Lacs Lake could for sure accomodate what you are looking for.

      Hello...  I am coming down to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester from Homer, Alaska on February 11-20 and would like some advice. On the afternoon of Friday the 16th  through the evening of Sunday the 18th I have the time to go fishing. I would like to go after some pike and walleye. I would like to stay in a heated shack during my time on the ice. Also some rental gear, a radio and bait might be nice. Any advice on who rents shacks within a 2+ hour drive of Rochester with good size fish? I am looking more for decent size than numbers.  Thanks JFaber
