Indian Lake

Recommended Posts

Bobberboy

Been over to Indain a couple times and can't seem to get anything to bite. Lot's of lookers.

Tons of people on the lake so I would suspect there catching fish.

Any advise would be great.

"Your bobbers down!"

They're all small, both sunnies and crappies. Sure, you can get a bigger one here and there if you put your time in, but there are better lakes out there!

Hey bobber, The last two years i had gone out to indian was same story. 1 man had shown me his tecnique the water is very murky only 3ft. visible from the sportsman's map info. I'll tell you his trick only because i still couldnt catch anything 10 times out there. he was out there at 7:30 at night crappies' hit em hard but he was taking very long pulls off the bottom in 23 fow. shaking is pole side to side rigerously all the way up to provoke the strike. using just a little jig and a crappie minnow with fire line. I saw his fish a couple were 6" but the rest were'nt really worth all that work. I never caught anything out there so try if you like and good luck. p.s. there were always a few to 10 guys out there then too!

Sorry Grandp, just having alittle fun. frown It's not that the system you outlined wouldn't work. It's like I posted earlier. We have had a cabin on Indian for about 30 years and it just doesn't have the big fish it use to have, but what lake does anymore! I'm sure the system you gave from your buddy will catch the fish in any lake. It's just that this one, sad to say is full of d i n k everything! We have gotton a few nice Bass and Pike out of it from time to time. But the Sunnies and Crappies are all small. Great place to take the kids though.

Right on leech lots of places are getting hard to fish. I had been on Indian a few times and a 50's something had been pretty nice. Asked me if i wanted to fish with him, said he had caught some nice ones. I'd never seen anyone jig like that,but he had fish and I didn't catch any even on his setup. I really went back a few times just to see if I could catch any, and no I couldnt. It hasn't much better for me anywhere else. I've been looking for pike on a tipup cause thats usually easy in cedar lake but I havn't got any there either. Thanks leech, and yeah that was funny !#*@

Grandp, when trying on Cedar for pike. Have you ever tried going straight across the lake from the boat launch to the other side by the bulrushes where a few guys fish sunnies? Give that spot a try.

That's where we speared in 10' for a few years. I was out there a couple weeks ago for about 4 hours put out two tipups'/w sucker minnows didn't catch anything. we used to have good luck out there early ice, but later in the year it shut off. One older guy spearing out there this year said he hadn't seen anything for a couple weeks.

Huuum! Ya that use to be a good spot. How about the very far other end in the small bays, or right out to the right of the park landing?

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...
    • Wanderer
      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.

      yea no target pic...……...I aint buying it!!!!!!!!😁 awesome looking gun !!!!!!!!!

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.

      Nice @AlwaysFishing23!   We drove by there last night and were tempted to pop a few holes but had burgers on the brain too much.   I got over half of the bottom part of the list done today and 1 part of the top list done, which was much more fun!   A friends custom 6.5 dialed in.  Started at 500 yards and finished at 1000; 7 mph cross wind.  My favorite hits were the 4 inch circle at 550; the 4”x5” plate at 700 and managing a 12 inch 3 shot group at 1000.  Man, he’s got this baby down.

      Wow the fish were on fire but little. I caught so many 4-7 inch gills and one 3 over 7 inches. Crappies were harder to come by and 5-7 inches. 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Got out fishing this morning at about 9am and was off by 2. Had a group of good buddies join and ended with 3 limits of big gills (8”-9.5”),  (limit on this lake is 10 per person per day) 2 jumbo perch, 3 decent pike, and 3 largemouth ( all pike and bass were released immediately as they are out of season). AWESOME day with a good group of buds. Sight fishing in 4-5FOW made the action even more fun😁 if you were able to get out it was a great day to be out with friends, family or the kiddos.

      We get mailboat delivery on Black Duck Island (east Frazer Bay) starting around the 1st of June through the first week of September. Other times, the Tower PO is good about holding mail. Aronson Marina runs the mailboat and could answer your question about Portage Bay.  Good luck, Dick
