Frontenec

2 posts in this topic

I was in the Lake City area with some budddies on sunday and we decided to try the Frontenac Pond. We poked a couple holes on the east side? I was suprised at how shallow it was. I wandered over by the shore and kicked open an old hole and there staring up at me was a small blue gill, I reached down and scooped him up and through him back down the hole.I knew something was wrong.Then I looked at some open water by the shore. There was water flowing in from the banks.It looked like a scene from a horrer movie there were thousands of dead and dying small blue gills by the flowing water, trying to get oxygen.

Maybe in the long run it will be good for the pond getting rid of some of the small stunted fish but, it didn't look good.

The pond isn't very deep at all. The deepest holes I've been able to find are no more than 7'.

The pond is full of small gills and I think that it would have no real effect to loose those kind of numbers. The fish in there don't get real big because of the numbers.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
