Does anyone out there fish this lake? I've seen Mazaska mentioned and I believe it is like right across the road from Shields, yet I haven't heard a thing all winter about that lake, except earlier on about some bad ice. Anyone do anything out there this winter?

Been out there a couple times this winter. Never anything really hot. Supposed to be sunnies biting and last time I was down there they said the northerns were heating up...of course that doesn't do much good anymore! It's a decent little lake. The water levels really dropped on it last summer though.

MHS...Thank you! From the lack of response on this lake, I thought that perhaps I was asking about it in the wrong geographical location, but it's right there in the south/central area.

Unless it was filled with toxic waste, I thought that someone on the board must fish it once in awhile? Thanks again.

I have been out on this lake many times, both hard and soft water. Have been given the "secret spot" for both seasons and to date I have never came home from that lake with anything but a sunburn or cold feet, depending on the season. I know that here are fish in there, I have just not been lucky enough to find them. Someday! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

TD...I plan on giving it a shot, maybe yet this ice season, or if not, for sure in the spring.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
