Saturday IceFishing

5 posts in this topic

Any reports on the possibility of getting out Saturday for one last try? Perch fever just won't go away. Is anybody still going out? If so, where and how. It sounds like the main lake ice is pretty good yet but the shorelines are rough. With the recent cold snap are there places solid enough to get out? Any information would be appreciated.

I would recomend a canoe, lifejacket, hip boots, and auger. If you can get to them I would say the jumbos will be biting.

The crappies are biting great if you can get out early and beat the crowds i was out by 5 am last weekend and got a limit of true hogs all over 13 inches, i think the ice should hold up for this weekend. laugh.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.
