South Lindstrom Lake - Sat. Opener

12 posts in this topic

My husband caught this 29" Norwegian Walleye today....just kidding.... My wife and I were fishing South Lindstrom today and I caught this Bowfin (Dogfish). What a blast to catch! It measured 29 inches and was caught in 7 feet of water using a slip bobber, hook and minnow.

Nice fish, jighead! I usually just shake those things loose with a pliers. You're a real man for picking up that prehistoric beast. Thanks for the pic.

You should cut-em open and let them go for the turtles. They eat eggs right out of the nests.

I have to admit, we forgot the net so my wife had to land it with her bare hands...she thought the thing was going to paralyze her arms if she touched it!

You didn't mention the rows of little barbwire-like teeth to her, did you?

This may be just a silly rumor but...

I heard that they sort of "bark" or make some kind of noise with their lungs...Do they?

I have heard them make some pretty awful noises when out of the water. I hooked into one that was about 5 lbs on Chisago one time and they put up a really good fight. But thats about all they are good for.

I caught about a 4 pounder on an UL panfish rod, that was fun. I landed it with a net and wouldn't even lift it into my boat. I had just given it the spring cleaning and no way was a slimy dog fish gonna ruin it.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
