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.

Thanks,

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.
