Hey bd:

Sorry, no concrete info here. Lots of moose sign around Jeanette. I hike all over there doing photography, though I've never fished the lake. Was out in your country this weekend. We have a family cabin on Beltrami.

There just aren't many people who fish Jeanette. I've been up there in all seasons, and have yet to see more than two boats at one time on the lake.

Moose, ducks, grouse and fish. That's a LOT of work to be done. Good luck, and I hope you find them all. grin.gif

I appreaciate the info guys, if we get our moose early that will open more time to play. Spoke with the area wildlife manager and he said the grouse numbers are way up in that area so that is a plus also.

After working hard for a year with little to no time off for an extended break the queen of my world told me to take the time off so I am doing just that. We'll post up what we find out if any one is interested or we can get lockjaw either way.

jeanette lots of eater walleyes. Watch out for rocks. Never fished it in september but other times of the year have found the walleyes to be shallower than one would think. Good luck on the moose hunt.

I would agree with the rocks post. I have never fished it myself but know lots of people who do. I have heard there are good eater walleyes and TONS of rocks!! Be careful and good luck.

Water is dark bog stained and it is hard to see the rocks until right on them.

I haven't fished Jeanette for a few years now, but is is a great lake. Take the rock warnings seriously, been luckly not to lose a lower unit but have snapped a prop on electic motor. Northeast side, almost entire shoreline will produce as well as west side of northern bay. September I have caught some decent perch in deep spot behind largest island.

Thanks for the info, I think we'll plan on pastics and power bait with jigs and a little rapala action there.

From the maps it looks like there are flowages out of the lake is it possible to go up those with a shallow 14' boat?

Again thanks for your help guys,

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.
