Huge sunfish in that lake if you can find them!!! Also some very good size northerns. Do you live right in new london? Or possibly west of town? You look very familiar! Well hopefully you don't get out there and drill a hole only to have dead fish come through the hole! It is very possible!

Not very good at all. After watching a guy drop the front end of his truck thru the ice up to his frame, we pulled him out and left. Little hairy out there!! We were just happy to make it back to shore without falling thru or getting stuck. Ended up fishing Green the rest of the day.

we have a a cabin on linka which isn't too far away!!!

gr8, hows the fishing on Linka? Always thought about trying it. Been on Scandi and Gilchrist but never on Linka.

How do you like having a cabin on Linka? Does the water stay clean enough for good swimming?

eyehead, good job pulling him out!!! I'll bet he was happy to see you!!!!!!!!!

Where did he fall in? By the landing or one of the islands? I would think by now that most lakes would be drivable all over??

Fishing on linka has been slow the past few years.......DNR did a survey and the sunfish population had diminished! Used to be alot of sunfish in the lake but that is no longer. It's mainly turned into a bass lake!! Carp have begun to take over as well which is no good!!! Gilchrist is my favorite to go to and early sunfish on scandi is great!

Linka is a great lake, nice and quiet and very clean!!! They do a water clarity test every spring where they drop a disc down and it usually is the 20' range that they can see it. One of the clearest lakes in Minn. Really tough boat access to get in and out of......definetly need 4x4. But it is nice for us cause the lake stays quiet that way!!! Lake isn't big enough for skiiers and tubers and all that stuff!!!

BLACKJACK, He fell thru Southeast of the first island. I would guess he was a couple hundred yards away from it. From what i'm told there are quite a few springs out there.

Firlman, yea I would maybe pick a different lake. I wouldnt want to drive out there after this rain. You got bigger stones than me if you do grin

early sunfish on scandi is great!

As in Early winter or Early spring or Early summer? I've fished it a few times in winter and haven't had much luck but have caught sunfish in the summer time, kind of small though. Nowadays I drive another 10 miles to Minnewaska after sunnies.

i fish johanna in the summer. i have been told NEVER drive a vehicle onto johanna from the acess no matter how thick the ice. i have a friend that has an 8 wheeler with tracks that floats, he went out there 2 weeks ago and said even with that it was scary.

      thx for the reminder!

      Some of the lakes have roads park and walk it what I will be doing
    • Borch
      Yeah I'm planning and scouting starting next week.  Any help is appreciated.   Also a reminder....   You will need a new fishing license as of 3/1/19.  The warden often comes by to say "hi"  and chat for a bit at our gathering.   I would hate to have someone forget.   Especially me. 😉

      I got stuck on West Rush Wednesday.  Thanks to Nick?  P  from Rush City for helping me get out.  I couldn't budge.  Mike from Mike's towing was going to come out and rescue me but Nick saved me a bundle!  Thanks, Mike for being willing to come out on the ice.    Just wondering how travel is on Rush and Pokegama this weekend.  I will be hesitant go get out until the snow gets packed down on a bit.!!!

      Might want to have him call a realtor but I think there is something open in that strip mall behind McDonald's. A friend retired and closed his jewelry store and that spot might work good. I think it's called Pokegama  Plaza. Next to Edward Jones and Sears.

      Hey PRO V, you wouldn't happen to know of any office spaces for rent in rapids would you? My co worker is maybe thinking of moving our office up there if he can find a reasonable price and enough room for his cabinets.
    • monstermoose78
      I am going to put a get together on Blue Lake in March!! I am thinking the second weekend at the time. My question is would Saturday or Sunday be best for most of you? This will be out of the north access as I have work on finding a good spot with active fish yet. Please let me know and if you are interested in helping find a spot with active fish. Thanks
