I was out on Twin Lake today the wind was tough out there. Didn't manage very many pannies out there. The ice was good used 4 wheeler out there and worked just fine. Anyone getting report of that area lately.

I assume you guys are talking about Twin lakes by Nowthen. I grew up on that lake. I have a friend who lived on the north end and owned the little island. Most years it wasn’t even and island. I used to work at Nowthen café and the old guys said Twin was an aqua ducked that joined deep under the earth with other small lakes in area. Like the one behind Green Bergs Implement. In the mid eighties, I had one of those old flasher with lantern batteries and I graphed depths around 100 feet deep in middle. I was out there 5 or 6 years ago and only could find around 70 feet deep. I figure with time sediment builds up and fills lake. With all the farming that used to go on around there, I would suspect this is what filled the bottom. For a small lake, it sure was deep. Caught a lot of crappie and northern out of there. At Ebners bait, way back when. I heard of a larger walleye caught in Twin. That was in the eighties as well. Anyone remember old Buck from the east side. He lived on hill in the center area. I also knew the Anderson’s, that bought the old roller rink on the north east side. Haven’t talked with them for years. Now a days, I fish it more so in summer. Our family picnic is there this year in July. I will report after I go there.

Good luck,

I think they are talking about the twin by annandale, which is connected to silvia.

I believe zzap was talking about nowthen, not sure which lake river huntfish was refering to.

Shackbash, was twin (nowthen) a good fish producer last summer? Northerns, pannies, walleye?

The fishing at Twin is always good. If you know were to go. I have caught crappies in the summer in 35-40 fow. The northerns are always shallow, but once I did catch one in 25 fow though the ice. I though fur sure it was a walleye. I though they had stocked walleye in past years. I could be wrong. I also did hear in the eighties the lake froze out. I do not know how this could be with the depth the lake has. I never saw it. During summer, stay to your right when going out. Look for structure in and around 15-25 feet of water during middle summer. If nothing is biting, go shallow. I always meant to try the middle for deep walleyes,

But never did. When you get to 70 FOW, what could be down there. Good luck!

Thanks for the info, I may take my boy and try from the Park dock when some time soon. Had any luck fishing from the dock?

I'll report back with results.

I tried the pier once last summer to get the feel for a new 6 1/2' rod. By mid-June it'll be pretty well lily-padded in, but you can catch all the SMALL sunnies you want, often even on bare hooks. I'd think it'd be a good place to take a young'un to keep them interested - you can practically sight-fish the spots around the dock.

I haven't looked at the ice condition in a couple of weeks, but I'd bet it's gone by now.

Good luck

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
