North or South end?

12 posts in this topic

I am planning a trip to one of the resorts and will be staying out on the lake for about 4 days. Which end is the best for the first week of January? Any help would be great!

I would concentrate on the North end. You can do a resort search on this forum. Many are listed.

Nate,

I agree with T.O. Your options are much better on the North End. I run several trips a year out of Twin Pines They are great people to deal with and the food is fantastic laugh.gif They have roads going out to the northwest flats for eyes and there's some good Perch fishing in the bay right out in front of the resort.

I usually just launch from public launches on Mille Lacs and speed off to my fishing places. I always wondered how much it costed to launch from resorts there on average.. Anybody know?

It's typically between $7.00 - $10.00 per vehicle.

I guess that I didnt know that the north end could be that good that time of year.I always thought that it was at its best in the late ice and the spring for the eyes and the perch.I always like tring something new. May be I'll have to give it a try and prove you right.

KEEP FISHIN, KEEP LEARNIN cool.gif

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!
