Tomorrow I am taking my 7 year old nephew out for his first time on the ice. Where can I catch fish? ANYTHING!!

I want him to have a fun day, and at least see his bobber go under. Any lake between Stillwater and Wyoming. Thanks!!!!

Green lake will do you proud. Go to the access on the east side and follow the road out to your left. You will see a bunch of shacks in the area about 1/2-3/4th mile from the landing. It is easy fishing in 6-8' of water. Tear drop and waxies will get you bit all day long with bluegills, crappies and an occassional bass or pike that cruises through with even the possibility of a walleye. Really easy fishing due to the water depth. Hope this helps.

Perfect!Thanks! I'll let you know how it goes. We are also going out on Forest(first)to have lunch in a buddys perm shack. Should be a great day!

I would suggest the exact same. I go out with my 5, 3 and 2 year old and it is hard to keep up with them using one pole each. I don't even try to fish, just re-bait and remove fish from their lines. Mostly small panfish, but the kids love it.

You guys were dead on. By the time I got a second hole drilled, he had caught 2 fish. I gave up and baited and unhooked fish. What fun! Took him over to Forest after, just so he could see what it's like to not catch fish also........

Glad to hear to hear you had a good time. Nothing like the little ones when they are fire up and catching fish! May have hooked another one into fishing. Nice job getting him out to fish!

Glad to hear it worked out. With the kids I take quantity over quaility any day. There is the chance of getting some nice fish out there too. We were out and my brother caught four bass (2lbs - 3lbs) and a northern. I have never seen that many bass caught at once in the winter??? Great to hear that the next generations are out there on the ice doing us proud!

      I would say Pike fishing got noticeably worse after the first year of spearing.  Used to catch lots of big pike while musky fishing..  I didn't catch a single one last year.  Makes me sad and angry, to be honest.

      The taxidermist won't know how to mount a fish of this size A true trophy of a life time.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.
