It's been quite some time since I've seen any reports for fishing on Washington. I'm planning to hit it on Saturday afternoon targeting pannies in the early afternoon and walleyes late in the day.

Anyone been there lately and have any info to offer?

Look between Grassy Island and the Boy Scout Camp in 15 - 20' of water for both 'eyes and crappies.

I would really look for the crappies on Washington.The eyes from this lake were pretty lame this past summer.I would look where you usually start your first ice fishing and you should do well.

Matt and I and a few others did very well on those crappies this past year and I am sure that the majority are still swimming. smile.gif

Thanks guys. I'll give those spots a try, although I'm not entirely certain where Boy Scout Camp is, but have a rough guess at what/where it might be.

My guess is the crappies might be suspended over deeper water right now, but there are a couple spots somewhat shallower that I'm going to look at also. Fishin' for pannies from 2 - 4pm, then going after the walleyes for the last couple hours. Regardless if I catch fish or not, it'll be a fun outing and with the deer season this weekend, I'd expect the lake to be pretty void of boats. smirk.gif

      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.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.

      They work. And as stated, sometimes better then live suckers! Cliff

      I can’t say Big Marine is a big fish factory but it should have nice clarity.  The main lakes of Minnetonka are pretty cool to play on.  Yeah, Minnetonka is a muskie lake but there are a lot of nice pike swimming out there.

      I’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!

      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.
