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?

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.

      Get a set of choppers to put over your nice gloves.  I throw choppers over my regular gloves when the bite gets slow.  Works like a charm.
