A Great day of ice fishing

9 posts in this topic

Just thought I'd share a few pics from a great day of fishing with my dad. The morning started with a nice 25" eye, dad pulled in a nice 24.5" a little later (his biggest walleye), and early evening I pulled in a beautiful 27.5" eye. Along with a few smaller eyes and perch to eat, and the biggest Eelpout I have ever pulled in it was a GREAT day on the ice, the best ice fishing trip yet. I'll let you guess where... grin.gif

Nope hitman that was Mille Lacs, my favorite little pond. I will be fishing out there a ton, living out there this summer. I would definately suggest you make a trip out there this spring/summer right now the strong year classes of eyes are huge and I can just about guaranty fish over 23. If anyone is interested in coming out that way let me know. That was one long day, a 24.5, 25, 27.5. Oh and if any one was interested caught the 25 on a frostee jigging spoon (introductory run w/ euros!) the 24 on sli bobber and minnow, and the 27 on a flyer type thing with whole minnow. they seemed to like a lot of action to call them in but then something that was natural looking sitting still, hence whole minnow. execpt the one on euros that was early in the morning and i was just pounding that spoon, just an agressive fish.

Yeah, I had a 28+ incher at the hole in the ol' Big Pond when my buddy and I were there a month ago. We also caught those twin 25 inchers I was talking about a month ago as well. What a fishery there. With time, that will turn into my favorite lake (although, Devils still holds that title for now smile.gif). My buddy and I are in the process of making reservations at the Grand Casino there for the opener. That's right, we are trying the opener at the Big Pond this year (Otter Tail is our fall back if that doesn't pan out)...

Good Luck to all!

Bison

your gonna go out on a launch boat at Eddys for opener then, or out in your own? I will most likely be fishing out of Garrison that weekend, let me know if you end up going. Did you go to NDSU than, for what? I'm a student there right now. Never fished Devils, but it would take a whole lot for me to say any lake is better than Mille Lacs for eyes, other than Erie I supppose. wink.gif

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
