Tamarac Refuge

3 posts in this topic

I know it can be a little work but do any of you fish out in the refuge in the winter, I have always been curios about Pine Lake, I think it is only open to fishing in the winter. I was out on Tamarac earlier this winter and caught plenty of notherns. I would have gone out on Pine but didn't have a contour map.

Just Curious

Good luck finding a contour map for Pine...actually call the headquarters they might have one, but I doubt it.

Dad took us out there one year for perch when I was young. I don't remmeber why, but there were people everywhere. I haven't seen anybody out there since.

Judging from hunting it, I would guess it's 10-12ft deep??

Also, make sure it's open to ice fishing. Check the Refuge regs to make sure. I got warned last year on a different lake that I fish in the summer, but is closed in the winter.

Good luck

There are some LARGE pike in that lake. They seem to cruise up in the water column, so I don't think you'd have to worry about finding deep water.

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
