i was out on it 3 times now and have caught a total of 5 of them for about 6 hours out there. i dont know what happened to them. i fished in the main 15 ft hole. last year i would catch them just as fast as i could rebait. i did however catch a ton of perch. all little but it kept me entertained for a while. anyone else been out there or have any ideas what the deal is?

maybe winterkill?

i guess thats possible but i would almost doubt it because its not THAT shallow of a lake and last winter wasnt that bad....but i dont know much about it. its deffinatly a possibility.

it wasn't winterkill at all, it was later in the spring, june I think. I contacted the DNR and they said it was a combination of the spawn and a gill parasite. in my opinion, its probally what this lake needed, as there were far to many small crappies in there. maybe now we can grow some slabs.

Heres what i know about fleming lake this winter, i hit the ice during halftime of the vikes poor showing against the bears on sunday and got off the ice just as the game was gettin done. During this time i had drilled 4 holes, all of which showed fish in them, i had landed about 3 limits of crappies, some odd sizes of perch, and one nice bluegill. Maybe i hit it on a good day but i think that if you move around and find the fish most others can do well also.

      Many people come on this forum asking for help, but I'm begging much more sincerely.   60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly pay one of you a NICE tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   I'm still begging.... could you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.

      I just got a report from nextdoor that we have 8-10 inches.
