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.

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.

      Nice! Thx for sharing.  I have so many weird stories like that and it's nice to hear another strange one!  Great story and memory.

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕  
    • leech~~
      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.
