Fox Lake reports???

4 posts in this topic

I am heading out to Fox Lake, north of Faribo this afternoon to try to hit some walleyes and crappies. Any reports would be greatly appreciated. I will report the activities later.

I was out on Fox recently and it was slow for me. I managed to catch a 14" walleye on a jig and minnow, and I thought I had a monster northern on while dragging a spinner rig. Turned out to be a 7 pound sheepie! He inhaled the whole dang rig. Disappointing to see it was a sheephead instead of a northern, but it did put up a heck of a fight.

      The ice is fine. I have a lot of standing water because my house is dark color. Come up and enjoy this weather. Ice is 24-30".a little snow left out on ice.

      Nick, you did a great job finding good fish for everyone.  Wished I woulda brought at least one rod and my flasher for the short time I was there.  But it was good to meet y'all face to face.   I got a hankering for some pannies now.  Might have to look for some tomorrow.

        I had the same experience today. Tons of little gills and very few big ones pike were not going on anything on tip ups today though. Wasn't fishing your area but figured I'd chime in. I had anywhere from 17-29 inches of ice with some water on top ice is great yet.

      Still plenty of good ice on Bartlett Lake today. 16" where I was at. No standing water on the ice yet. The shorelines were in good shape, too. Too bad it will probably all be trash by Tuesday.   The bluegill were biting well this morning, but for every decent sunny I had to throw back about eight potato chips.   The Northern were slamming tip-ups baited with shiners. Too bad for me I brought suckers. I caught a couple Northern, and a 16" largemouth as well. I would have liked to get out to the airport lake tomorrow morning (after a trip across the river to get some shiners  ), but I have other things to do. The backwaters around Winona will just have to wait until next December.
