Going out tommorrow.... which one of these lakes should I target?

Recommended Posts

broman

I am going out tomorrow with a buddy of mine to look for crappies and walleyes. Crappies are my main target as I suck at catching walleye through the ice.

I want to hit 2 or 3 lakes is possible. At the moment I think Pelican will be the last lake of the day. I have to see what the hype is all about.

In what order would you rank the following lakes?

French

Granite

Limestone

Locke

Pelican

Sylvia/Twin

Pelican, the best kept secret in the state. There will only be 5 or 10 other people out there.

Oh.... I have heard about the number of people. That's why it's not my first pick.

Last night i basically needed to use my blinker on the lake just to slide in between all the trucks heading of the ice.

I ended up hitting the following 3 lakes yesterday.

Collinwood - dead sea, nothing on the flasher

Granite - lots of people off the point, lots of small fish, fun for kids

Pelican - found a spot near the ice heave that produced crappies, iced about 10 - 12, missed at least 6 more, kept 2

      I started using a chain hoist like this 2 years ago. Much easier for one or two people than a rope block & tackle. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004PX1F9S/ref=psdc_511406_t1_B009F257DE?th=1

      I thought I read some where Cliff mentioned 66-67 over the weekend and it'll start to slide now with cooler temps.
    • Sculpin
      Although not level related, can someone tell me what the current water temps are in the main lake, Big Bay  Cliff ? I am coming for a week a the end of the month. Thanks very much

      Really, do you think it will handle 19 Bucks? 🙄    😅

      rayguy how has the fishing been the last week?  I know the weather hasn't been  ideal but hopefully you have been out.  I won't be up this weekend but will be back up next Thursday to catch the Vikes game at a local watering hole and then fish most all day Friday and Saturday.  Hoping to get another report from you closer to Thursday next week also! 😁

      click hereSuper-Handy Heavy-Duty 4,000 LB Capacity Rope Hoist look at it on amazon. 19 bucks. I bought one about 10 years ago and love it. I can raise a big deer by myself with this one. So glad I bought it since I do the butchering. I raise them up, tie legs off to rafter with a rope so it doesnt spin and skin away.

      Any thoughts about stocking perch of other forage base in this water to keep the walleye from canabalizing the younger year classes?

      Tough day of fishing for this guy today, ended up with about dozen eyes kept a limit of 13.75"-18"ers... I must have drove around for 2 hours before I even wet a line...Pretty sure I zippered every rock reef in big bay and to the east... I finally found some fish in a 30+ foot hole next to a sand hump... I found my best spot a couple hours before I planned on taking off (of course it was .5 mile from the access) 21-24ft sand/rock transition right by an island. I was surprised with how many people were out for a weekday in the fall.

      I was just telling my wife how I used to look forward to your detailed reports on here from my dads account on the way to the cabin years back, then I switched over to YouTube to enjoy Casey Sunsdahls updates. If I have time before we come up on our spring trips I will even go deep diving years back that have the same ice out dates to try to gain more insight on new locations to try. Sure miss your reports and hope you and yours find some luck. I will report Monday with our findings as we are also forced to come earlier than we would like, hope we can help narrow the search for Waldo! PikeMaster
