Taking some kids fishing

7 posts in this topic

Just looking for some help, taking som kids fishing Saturday to Big Carnelian and would like some advice as where is a good place to start for tip ups, bringing my 9 and 8 and 3 year old out and thought this would be a great lake for some action at least for them and want this first time experience to turn them onto fishing and the outdoors

Big Marine isn't too far away from there, you should go there instead. ALOT more northerns...bigger ones too! And if you want to keep the kids busy there's lot's of sunnies and perch too

If you just head north on manning ave you'll hit mayberry trail, take a right (east) and that'll take you right to the access on the north end of the lake. There's a couple points in the north arm, stay in 12 to 17 ft. Rainbow chubs or shiners under a tip up should get you a couple pike. There's some real nice sunfish in this lake too.

And if the pike are fickle. . . the bass always raise a flag! smile.gif Last time out LM outnumbered pike 2:1. Great action and better than average size.

Took the kids out to the bay on the northeast side, wind was horrendous, but kids had a lot of fun, 8 tip ups and 6 flags, biggest northern was 18 inches but they had a blast and cant wait to go again thanks for any information given.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
