Fishhook

Recommended Posts

Just fished Fishhook last night. I had to make a trail with my snowmobile three days ago and let it freeze down. Then the second day I shoveled a spot for my fishouse. I drilled and hole on the shoveled area and let it flood. The water came up 5 inches over the ice. I then went back yesterday and pulled my house out on the road I made and blocked it up over the new ice, on the flooded area I had made. I caught 4 perch and 3 walleyes, all small. I then returned to the lake today and found my house was begining to freeze down so I chopped it out and pulled it off the lake. Not pretty.

My father-in-law recently bought a year round home on fish hook. Im thinking of going for the weekend. I dont have a snowmobile. I believe his place is right off 18 on the west side of lake. He says theres houses out in front of his place. I think theres a big dropoff there. Are there places I can drive to or am I stuck walking out from his house. I usually fish crappies, but I am assuming they are fishing walleyes out there. I have never fished in park rapids areas. Can anybody give me a few tips on what lakes are good for walleye and crappie. Thanks.

Well, you were right about the walleyes out in front of your father in law's place. There is nowhere to drive on the lake from over there and I doubt weather you can get there in a vehicle. Your best bet would be to walk from in front of his place, out to the break. The weedline is at 21 feet. This is where I woould set up to fish walleyes. If you are looking for panfish, on fishook, drive over to the access on Hwy 71, over by the big group of houses and look for 9 to 14 ft of water. It will be weedy but they catch them over there. I would wonder off to the right of the access, but either way will work.

Later in the spring this area really picks up.

Good Luck

How limited is travel on the lake right now? I would either head out with a truck and portable or truck and wheelhouse.

You will only be able to get around where the roads a plowed. There is a road out off of the Hwy 71. The other plowed road is out of the assembly grounds access, which is off of CR 1, up by the Headwaters Golf course.

My son was out on fishook yesterday. He and his friend caught three crappies. They said the ice was about a foot thick. There were lots of people walking out there and a few drove atv's. The ice is getting a little iffe around the edge.

      @Surface Tension @eyeguy 54    The shaver style augers are easier on drills. The blades last a lot longer as well. But the two guys I tag will give great info. I have seen eyeguys nils cut and it’s fast now that he up graded drills. Surface tension sharpens nilsblades and is the go to guy for information on the in my opinion.

      Sandberg 780-7153, Ratai 780-1124, Bodri 780-6761,  I did my own with standing seam metal from Menards. Really easy to do

      I used to have that problem with my 115 merc, since it only charged at like 10 amps.  The new suzuki is more like 60 amps, plus I hooked up the third bank on my built in charger to the cranking battery.   Haven't had a problem since.

      We are planning on getting a new roof on the cabin next year.  Old one is 20 years old. Thinking about metal.   Anyone got opinions about metal roofs, or suggestions for a reliable guy to put it on?

      Ozzie we have to learn how to fish a new lake structure cause of the zebras I guess. Fish upper quite a bit and have seen no sign of clearer water yet. How did the three way rig work out?

      I just replaced my Interstate battery for my trolling motor they last 1 year and 1 month just out of warranty. Went with a different brand this time. I would also get a separate battery for all that stuff going to the starting battery.

      yes the weeds are thick in areas but it is amazing to me that traditional weed lines are not even sprouting up in areas!!  I have a section of lake that I have been walleye fishing for the past 6 years and every year there has been a weedline to follow.  The last 2 years we have seen the zebra's become prevalent and this year no weeds in that area!  Crazy

      Actually, it makes perfect sense. The car's charging system probably can't keep up for the same reason. I know when I fire up my farm tractor, even when it doesn't take much to get it started, it can take a lot longer than one realizes to recharge the batteries to full strength. During the winter, I only use the tractor for short periods so I often have to put a charger on it after each use to be sure the batteries are up to full power.    Can have similar issues with ATVs. Winches can put a pretty heavy load on the electrical system and using them to lift a blade repeatedly will put a drain on the battery that the charging system is unable to keep up to.    Starting an engine takes a lot of power and it takes more than just a few seconds to recharge the battery afterwards.
