How is everyone doing on Pokegama in Pine City? I'm gonna try for some crappie/sunnies. I'm heading up there tomorrow for the weekend. Finally, My 1st time on the ice this year!

Hoggs,

You fish this lake often?

The inlaws have a place on the north side, but i never make it up there to fish it. Is it a worth while place to bring the boat to or ice fish? I know there is a river that goes thru it, but never ice fished it.

I've actually only fished it a few times. We usually party up there. We can catch some decent cats, some walleye in my buddys bay. Other than that, we're at Muffys or pontooning. I hear there's some decent crappie & sunnies in there though.

Fished it a bit before... I like to go out from the middle east side. There is a dead end road that you can get on the lake from, and go just to the north a little. Deeper for crappies. Silly thing about this lake, I had alot of finiky little crapps not bitting (and I mean more than once this happened) so I used a live minnow and a jig+waxy on line 2, both just below the ice where I got an occasional flash. Got some lonely roaming crapps to come in, and they bit hard. They were all keepers too. 10 and 11". All others I ever caught in there were too small. (7-8). Let me know.... haven't been there in last 2 years.

I just got back. Man that lake is a mess. 10" of slush here and there. I thought my buddy was going through.

There were people driving trucks around. Not for me.

We managed small crappie and a 9" walleye. That lake has plenty of small walleye from what I hear.

Where about did he go through? We were fishing off of Muffys point and it was OK. Lots of slush in the bay behind Muffys and to the left of there though.

Surprised that more people didn't post - Pokegama is doing well for crappie and sunfish anywhere around the lake - fish around 20 feet of water. There is ton of people on the lake, but you don't need to follow them to catch fish - the fish comes in waves.

It's drivable with a full sized, If you stick to the common roads. I wouldn't be cutiing cross country quite yet though. There was 18 inches of good ice where we where at last weekend.

People are driving full size trucks out, but I would stick with west side of the lake or drive on the roads that people are using on the east side. Spot I was on had 12" of good ice on it.

I was all over the lake on Saturday and didn't see 18 inches anywhere. 11 or 12 would be a better estimation. Full size trucks were everywhere, but I took the wheeler. I would have drove someone elses truck though. grin.gif

The south access is right off cty rd 7 in the southwest corner of the lake. The outlet to the snake river is in the southeast corner. So you'll be nice and safe driving out.

      My cabin is very close to where your boat is in that pic.  It was 40 around there last weekend. Headed up again Thursday morning.

      Is anyone interested in pheasant hunting in SD in Mid or Late November?  I used to do more of it but kinda got busy with really young kids for a few years there and lost the dog around the same time. I basically gave it up for a while. I would like to start making a trip or two back out to SD and would really like to meeting some other guys who enjoy the sport.  It would be great to find a few new friends around the same age +/- 10 years and maybe some of the same interests in fishing and hunting. Live in the Twin Cities area so we could drive down if you are in the area or just meet out in SD sometime.

      I do not believe that is from Red. It shows sunny's under the smallest fish and according to the DNR, there are none in Red.

      On the main basin... As water temps approach mid 40's, walleye anglers reporting strong fall bite. Good fish caught despite a lot of precipitation this past week.  Clear weather in forecast.  Walleyes staging at various south shore locations in 20-29'.  Jig and frozen shiner the ticket. Anchor up and jig with gold, glow red, or gold/orange.  Fish are very active. On the Rainy River... Strong walleye activity continues.  Jig and frozen shiners continue to be go to method with some anglers also trolling crankbaits.  Shiner run has slowed for the moment but good numbers of walleyes in river.  Sturgeon have the feed bag on.  The sturgeon catch and release season goes though April 23, 2019.  The bite is on!     Up at the NW Angle... Fishing continues to be excellent.  Limits of walleyes being caught in 14 - 25'.  Jigging still producing.  Look for areas of current in neck down areas and outside of bays.  Fall crappie bite continues strong.  Big pike are making their presence felt, like it or not!  Muskie trollers boating and releasing good numbers of fish.  The best fall fishing is yet to come!

      Wow, it would be interesting to see if the big winners Cory, Justin and Dave all drove down from Canada together and where they hide the fish to get across the boarder?  🤔  😆

      I am gonna go out on a limb here and say they did not catch a 15 pound walleye on Upper Red in MN.

      Early ice I am always targeting big crappies not numbers and I always start shallower in the weeds that are still green and I use bigger profile spoons tipped with a minnow head or even a large plastic monnow profile. I find that the larger crappies will  move in for a short while and be feeding on the remaining minnows until they head back out. I fish in that 6-9" area with great results very early ice.

      I'll be out second weekend in my traditional spot as well. Always see deer but I have yet to stick one. Hoping this is the year!
    • jgrimmz
      Wow, impressive! I was out in northern MN over the weekend and, while working on stands, flushed six. No shots as all were roosted high in the trees thanks to the rain, but made for some excitement at least.
