Maple Lake

Recommended Posts

al15abc

I am going to be up at Maple lake this upcoming weekend and week and have only fished it in the summer. I was wondering how it was for ice fishing and if anyone has any pointers. If you do not want to share it on the forum my email is al15abc@yahoo.com any information would be great becasue I am bringing with three buddies that have never ice fished before and want to make sure they have a good time and see some fish, not just empty beer cans. Thanks

It's been slow... I've been fishing a few nights each week targeting 'eyes with no luck at all. I took the camera all over the lake looking for structure and baitfish and couldn't find anything that looked good but just moved the house into shallower waters so we'll see how it turns out tonight. A lot of guys fish northerns during the day... might be a good bet as they're tons of the little jig robbers out there. March is a great time for panfish but right now fishing is tough. May want to try Buffalo instead...

Stick, thanks for the info but was not able to check the forum unitl I got back from fishing. You were right, maple lake was slow and I only was able to mark some fish around 4:00 P.M and had to leave before dark becasue I left my lanten back in St. Paul. But it was still great to get out and enjoy the fresh air. As for those eye's in maple I have heard about them being there but have yet to see one.

So... anyone planning on attending the Maple Lake fishing derby out on Saturday? Sounds like they're expecting a good turnout and with the warm weather forecasted, it should be a pretty good time. I was going to do the Brainerd Extravaganza but opted to stay home instead. Moved the fish house to the beach area last night so I'm ready. Anyone else?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?
