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

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
