Place to put a perm out this winter?

5 posts in this topic

Hi All, I'm thinking of building a basic permanent shack in the weeks ahead and am looking for thoughts/ideas on what might be a good spot to put it that is not too far from Pine Island (other than the Zumbro). I'm thinking that I will use it maybe some weekday morns before work and after work as well as some weekends. Overall I just need to be able to get there in less than say 45 minutes. Faribault lakes seem a little far, same with Mankato so that leaves maybe the river? Anybody have any thoughts on Baypoint in Red Wing as a spot for a perm? Any other ideas within 50 miles of Pine Island (again, other than Zumbro)???

Appreciate any feedback.

Distance is a relative term. If you are willing to drive a little I would put it on the Frontenac Pond. Its less than 10 min north of Lake City. There are a lot of people that put it permenant shacks out there.

Thanks for the reply....yeah, that's an idea. What's the typical catch down there...Gills and Gators I beleive, is that correct? Any other spots around Lake City where perms get put out on a regular basis?

yeah mostly gills and gators...You could put it out on the river near the point or down by 1st or 2nd creek.

Your chances of having consistent luck anywhere on the river is like finding a needle in a haystack.

Hey Steve... Did you get the email I sent you the other day? Let me know, I've been wanting to touch base with you.

Thanks,

      4-6" of snow this weekend on top of our new ice hopefully the cold snap early next week will keep making ice through it and we don't end up with the slushy mess of last year.

      There is a lot of my fishing friends and captains talking about this new app called fishangler. The app is giving away$$$$ for 2016 cool fish pics. Has anyone heard of it and what do you think?

      I was thinking the same thing.  Given the forecast, it should get locked up sooner rather than later.    Of course, it *was* nice to get out fishing last week in the boat.  First time I can honestly say I've fished the lake in a boat in December.  And if the quality of the fishing last week has anything to say for it, it's going to be another amazing year on the lake. There'll be plenty of fish caught, that's for sure.
