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.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
