Fished from noon till dark on the north end. Fished from 6-18 fow. Boy did it suck. Plenty of 3 inch bluegills and 6 inch crappies though. Hopefully the nicer gills arent all fished out. This lake sure gets hammered in the winter. Also I heard that the city sewage backs up into the lake. Yuck. I think i will just catch and realease in this lake. Oh I almost forgot I did land a huge pike on 2lb line. It was pushing 15 lbs. Really thick and fat. Took about 15-20 minutes to land. It hit a no 16 diamond jig and a red spike crazy.gif

Also fished Lily near Elysian in the morning. Didnt mark a single fish.

I saw a few out. I think they are pushing it. Id just show up at the access and (Contact Us Please) the situation from there. Im sure there will be plenty of wheelers out. And i'd bet someone would help pull it, esp for a small fee smirk.gif

With one 8" exception, I measured 10+/- 1", on Sunday, didn't measure on Monday night when I pulled mine out. I have been watching the various reports and it seems those on the north end are reporting around 10, those on the middle to south are reporting around 12.

For me, it's a little thin to be driving out yet but then I am concervative. If I drop one through, not only do I have to get it back out, I have to call a diving friend to come be safety diver while I go under and hook my own truck up. I know my diving friends will never let me live that one down.

Sorry, I have to work Saturday night but will probally be out Sunday afternoon / night. Call me if you don't find anyone (before 2:00 pm) as the ATV is still on the trailer and not that big of deal to drag with when it's already loaded.

I was out on north side today and I could'nt keep the quarter size sunnies off my bait anyone else having that problem ? Out of about 13 fish 2 were keepers. I even tried offering larger jigs no help they still went after it. There is alot of houses on that lake and I know people have to be catching some keepers just wondering what I'm doing wrong lol.

To update my last post. I went out today for a few hours and dropped in some tip-ups. Well 16" under the house 13-14" 20feet away from the house? Fishing was slow at best but I have heard of reports of some nice fish comming as well. Of course that is just rumor and I have not heard anything first hand.

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?
    • Slopfishin
      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!   
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
