lake conditions

4 posts in this topic

made the rounds earlier this afternoon. went past soloman, norway, games, andrews, florida, ringo, henderson, and long lakes. didn't see 1 fisherman although this was early (around 2:00 ). the accesses seemed to be in pretty rough shape for the most part. lots of snow and the only 2 that were cleared out were andrews at the park and games at the park. still looked like it would be tough to get on the lakes at either of those 2. maybe foot travel or 4 wheelers in the short term??? frown.giffrown.gif

There was a lot of ice before we got dumped on with this snow!! Now I'm afriad that water will start coming on top of the ice once you start drilling....

Supposed to hit 40 next weekend for a few days, that may melt things down enough to do some driving, until then I think walking (or a snowmobile) would be the way to go...

i'm with you there blackjack. just curious---does the county maintain/plow the accesses or will they just stay plugged up until they melt or someone else runs a plow thru them??? walking will be tough too!!!

      This weeks warm weather should have the panfish starting to push shallow. Hit a spot for a few min this afternoon.... Not the biggest fish by any means... but a start to open water it is

      And just like that, it's open water time.... Got a few small ones today... felt good to have the long rod out again

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?
