Sullivan & Platte Lakes

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone been northern pike fishing on these lakes? Also, is there still a bar/restaraunt on the channel?

Larry - I speak with limited experience on Sully, but when I was up there in January the channel bar/restaurant was closed and had been for some time.

As for the pike, they don't come big although the latest survey has them a bit bigger than the last time. Lots of 2-4 lb. fish. My guess is that the bigger ones patrol the deeper water.

The south shore of the west bay on Sully has some nice weed beds. That's where I've had my best luck. I like spinnerbaits because I only have to deal with one hook. They hit 'em pretty good. Good luck.

Sully didn't have alot of weeds onthe south side last year, someone said the lake assotation poisoned the weeds off. And the pike have been small, 2-4 lbs. sound kind of big more like 1-2 lbs. There are some big pike and walleyes but few and far between. I did here the crippes have been biting good.

      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.
