Input appreciated for North of Pine and Adrian's Road

Recommended Posts

tbirath

We will be heading up this Thursday to fish North of Pine out of Adrian's road with our portables and would appreciate any input as to where to fish, should we head west or east of Adrian's road and your thoughts on how far out. Snow depth, are we restricted to the plowed roads with our truck? Appreciate any input, thanks for the help.

a group of us just came back this evening, we were up friday thru noon today. Adrians roads are in good shape, even with four wheel drive it will be near impossible to get off the plowed roads. there are some places you might be able to, but still tuff. the bite was very slow we spent most of the time in 28-32 feet of water, 2-3 miles out. we parked on the main road then pulled our portables off the road a few yards. no one color seems to do better than any other, stay near the bottom with short jigging motion. hope you have better weather than we did cold with 10-15 mph winds.

We were there from the 1st to the 4th.

There was no consistency in lures or colors except the hot lure was a chubby darter every day.

We caught the most fish in 27 feet but on other days had better luck in at 21-25 feet deep. We didnt catch anyfish in 33 feet of water.

We also didnt catch many fish in the eater size range maybe 8 for four days of fishing. We caught hundreds of small ones. In my opinion it was a pretty slow fishing or at least not exciting.

Was out yesterday on adrians road, the road itself is great, but as mentioned above getting off the road is the problem, if you have access to a snowmobile i would definitely bring it, otherwise you are going to be fishing off or very close to the road. fishing was real slow, but with the nasty wind/cold we weren't able to fish as long as we wanted. Also there was a ton of water coming up the holes, had three inches of standing water in the portable which doesn't make for a fun time. Oh well, always next weekend.

Yes there are alot of side roads but they are still major arteries to houses. A snowmobile would be nice to have if you have one.

You should have no problem getting off the "main" road. However, just as everyone has said you'll prolly need to use roads going east/west towards resort/lodge houses. I do this fairly often when the snow gets a little deeper...just try to stay a little ways away from the ones in use and you should be fine. Typically, not every house on their road will be in use....also a good way to tell where the resorts think fish will be....they'll try to put ppl on top of them.

      Yep I've been seeing it almost daily since Friday on the south end of the bay. Getting me excited! Time to winterize the lund. It was a good run again this year!

      Omg @Parmer I totally forgot about the Zoom, tells ya' how far my mind is from ice season yet. I do use it, but not whole lot, usally for perch fishing. Most of my Walleye are caught shallow.  
    • Parmer
      All I use is an fl8. I have had it like 16 years.  I guess I don't really believe in the zoom and all that stuff.  Think the fl8 reads fish pretty good.  And I hardly get any interference like my buddies, with there fancy Marcum's lol.

      First fish today was a big fat grey 30 incher, so as a guide the pressure was off right away. Steady action spot locked jigging in 30 feet of water with frozen shiners. By noon we needed 1 Sauger and one Walleye. At 3pm we got a nice Walleye so we quit at 3:30 one Sauger short. It was still pretty windy this morning but from the SW so fishing wasnt too tough. Had to toss the anchor at 2:30 the 3 batteries in the Terrova were spent, thats how windy it was this morning. Here are the pics

      NW is not good at Long Point(I dont know where it is good on this end of the lake.)  SW, WSW and S can blow pretty good without much damage.   Keep your fingers crossed and good luck

      Hey thanks for the help anyfish2! Would you have a wild guess on how many acres the lake is?
    • ANYFISH2
      Not exact on the Max depth.  Can on occasions, winterkill, although not often.   I have fished it numerous times as I know a couple home owners there.   There are are crappie, bluegill, bass, pike, and the lake owners stock some walleyes as well(they have permits to do so).

      Can someone please tell me of a good place to rent ice houses near Alexandrai, Mn???
    • kemp13
      Anyone know anything about lake Camile near cushing, mn? Looks like a real small private lake. I'm just looking to find out max depth and if it holds any fish. Any info is appreciated!

      Live to hunt another day by wearing a life jacket or float coat Hunters hitting the water this fall in pursuit of ducks, geese and other waterfowl are reminded to include life jackets on their hunting gear checklist.  “Hunters in Minnesota are trained from a young age to always put safety first,” said Lt. Adam Block, boating law administrator for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Enforcement Division. “For duck and goose hunters, that means always wearing a life jacket on the water – no exceptions.” More waterfowl hunters die every year from drowning than from other types of hunting incidents. Swamping, capsizing and falling overboard are all common factors leading to these deaths, but in nearly all cases the hunters would have survived had they been wearing a life jacket. “Before launching the duck boat, make sure everyone on board is wearing a life jacket or float coat,” Block said. “It’s the one item that greatly increases your odds of surviving a water emergency and living to hunt another day.” The wide variety of comfortable, camouflage life jackets designed specifically for waterfowl hunting includes inflatable vest and belt-pack styles, insulated flotation jackets, and foam-filled shooting vests with quilted shoulders and shell loops. “Typical foam-filled vests or float coats provide optimal insulation against cold air and the effects of hypothermia, but without question, the best life jacket for waterfowl hunting is the one you will actually wear,” said Lisa Dugan, DNR boating and water safety outreach coordinator. “Choosing a life jacket style that works for you, and wearing it every time you’re on the water, is not only a good choice – it’s the best choice you can make.” At the very least, all boats must carry one U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket for each passenger, and boats longer than 16 feet must also have a throwable flotation device immediately available. Children under 10 must wear a life jacket. Other water safety tips for duck hunters include: Don’t overload the boat; take two trips if necessary. If wearing hip boots or waders, learn how to float with them on. Stay near shore and avoid crossing large expanses of open water, especially in bad weather. Share trip plans with someone and advise them to call for help if you do not return on schedule. Use a headlamp, spotlight or navigation lights to alert other boaters to your presence in dark and/or foggy conditions. Carry a cell phone or personal locator beacon in case of emergency.
