Sunfish/Horseshoe

5 posts in this topic

I've fished these two lakes peroidically the last couple of years, because they are supposed to have a pretty fair number of pike. We've caught a few small ones, but not the size or numbers that the survey indicates. Went to Sunfish on opener & the water was dirty colored & there was barely a weed to be found other than the new lillies around shore.Anyone have much success on these lakes?

Thanks, L2f

No luck at all on Horseshoe - great looking lake for bass - will have to try my luck with that once open.

Rice Lake, near Hunt Lake? That's really shallow & I think the only way in is on the west end off the road, no public access. I've always cosidered taking my canoe there, but have never done it. I just wondered if anyone else had experienced tougher fishing on Horseshoe I used to love that lake, bass crappies & pike.

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
