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

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
