Is there enough snow cover to get around on sleds? Or is driving the better option right now? I prefer to leave the truck on shore if I can. 

 

Thanks and and good luck!

Was wonder the same. I'm thinking of either hitting Mille Lacs or somewhere in Brainerd in the morning with the sled and porty?

I would say not enough snow for a snowmobile. At least not on the lakes in this area .( St Francis / Cambridge )The wind has blown the skiff of snow that we got into small piles, barely enough to put on the flaps of a portable. I have used my cleats the last couple of days.

Good Luck Fishing

I just checked the Mille Lacs cam site and it's don't look good. Guess I'll run up to Brainerd I know they had more snow up there a week or two ago.

Leech, at least west of brainerd, the is almost no snow on the lakes.  Plus we recieved zero snow this last week.  Not looking good in this neck of the woods for sleds.

I just got back from Mille Lacs. There's barely any snow, and the ice is so uneven and slippery that I could barely walk around and hole-hop, even with chains that usually provide plenty of grip. I almost went down a few times. The ice surface looks like ripples on the water.

I was going to run up there but the web cam shots didn't looks great for snow. Thanks for the update.

      I am coming up there Sept 5 and staying a week.  I can hardly wait!  I want to get in on the trolling bite before it gets too late.

      One of the reasons I decided to try them is size. Can't find shiners here and the fatheads are small, almost as small as crappie minnows. The light pike sucker minnows are 4" - 5" and with the water cooling down and the later part of the season, I'm thinking the size will more closely match natural forage. We'll see how things go.

      Went out of superior entry yesterday morning. Found some decent laker action. They were all on the small side and most all of them came in 52 fow on the riggers set at 45 ft. Ended up with 7 lakers and a bonus walleye. Had a lot of quick releases on the riggers as well so probably smaller Lakers.

      One of the lakers had 14 pieces of minnows in it's gut!! And it still attacked my spoon

      By the way, we saw three nice bucks in a group on Wakemup Village Rd on the way home.  I was sort of surprised since They were clearly in a group, and I thought bucks were more solitary.    Looked like 6-8 pointers.    Good looking deer.

      Went out late last week out of the Wisc entry and dropped a line in 55 feet of water and nailed one right off the bat before setting any other lines out. Trolled till 100am and we picked up 5 lakers and one nice walleye. Walleye went back.   Most on dipseys and one came off a  4 oz snap weight right off the back with spoons. No particular coleor
    • tacklejunkie
      Agree with the above. But I've also caught plenty of eating sized walleyes with them, also

      I've used light suckers when I couldn't get shiners or rainbows and was going after bigger walleye and they did work.

      We had bought bait for pike fishing last winter, well I sent my wife in to buy it while I fueled the truck.  Scoop of crappies and a dozen suckers for tip ups.  She came back with a scoop of crappies and a dozen light pike suckers.  Those are for pike, right?   We couldn’t get on the lake we intended to so went to plan B for walleyes with friends.  I “gave em a try” and was really impressed how well they worked.  I’ll definitely do it again.

      Went to Landing last night (Saturday).   Had reservations and got a nice table by the window.   Server was working hard but seemed like maybe she was new and over loaded.    My iced tea was served in a shorter glass, and the water was plastic cups.  Maybe the dishwasher was behind.   Food was good and served hot.   My burger was a little over cooked but not bad enough to make me complain to the place.  Just you guys.      Prices moderate.  They  had run out of artichokes for the artichoke dip...  Price was good.   Plenty food for me and mrs.     No alcohol, my buddy is on methotrexate and gets one beer a week.   His was friday at the cook vfw burger night which I highly recommend.
