Spearing near Fargo-Moorhead

Recommended Posts

ndsufish

I am going to school at NDSU and I loved spearing northerns around my hometown in Central MN. Does anyone have any advice on where to spear near the F-M area? Since I'm a MN resident I can only spear in MN. I was looking at going to Silver or Cormorant, any suggestions?

I would forget Silver - tried it last year because it was close to town but it was very slow.

Try Upper or Little Cormorant or Lief.

Haven't been up there for a number of years, but Lief was a good lake and usually clear, from what i remember.

Thank you! I think I will try Lief or Little Cormorant, thanks for the advice. I am sure the ice is think enough to drive on, but are there any bad spots or springs I should watch out for? I have a two-wheel drive pickup so I can get stuck if there are drifts, are these lakes generally plowed? Any advice on where to go is also appreciated.

Leif was pretty good. Saw a lot of action, mostly too small to throw the spear at though. I took my friend for his first time spearing and he got one and I got one. I'll get a picture or two up soon.

      Fished the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Dakota lithium has a cool little box like that.  Comes with a lithium battery thats half the weight but a bit pricey at around $200

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.

      Open water right in front of launch on linwood. 2 guys went through this morning. Up to their waists in water. Just be careful walking out. Had 9 inches everywhere I drilled on the lake.
