Haven't fished it in a couple of years but use to spend my every summer up there until I was 18. Wanted to know if you can still catch some pretty nice panny's up there? I'm heading down there in a couple of weeks... I have my own spot to fish away from the crowds between the rushes and the island for crappies but, any good idea for ice sunny's would be appreciated.

Thanks and good fishing!

Not many people know that name for the lake...i have been on it for 30 years, no sunnies in the winter yet. i like looking for the walleyes and keeping up with the crappies keeps me busy too. i assume the reeds you are talking about are off the "point" of isle of pines??

yeh, to the north of the island there is almost like a sunken island.... long rushes and pencil weeds in the summer. Most of the cars an people that ice fish that lake congregate right there in the deep water between them. This is a good spot and fish can certainly be caught there but I usually have better success finding them off on my own. Plus once you find them they seem to stay in the area since there is no noise. I have never went out and actually targeted the walleyes however, I caught a 6 plus pounder there fishing for crappies in 2000. Was a lot of fun, he still is swimming so hopefully the lake will reproduce. My dad said back in the late 50's and 60's they would catch them pretty regular... Probably what happened to the lake. Anyway, I haven't caught the blue's there in the winter either, think I'm going to try and target them when I go....

Thanks for the response...

we caught and released a 25.5 inch eye the new years day off the west side of east side of church. all the walleyes being caught are big, unfortunatly most are being eaten.

Maybe we are talking about a different lake after all... No Church on the lake I'm talking about. Unless thats a reference to something else or there is a new one that has been built up there in the past few years. The one I'm referng to is off of HWY 47 for the public access however, you can also get to the lake by taking Red Indian Road.

      My transducer issue was during open water.   My hypothesis after several transducers was that freezing them after having been in the water damaged them.    Once I stopped letting them freeze then they stopped going bad.   Maybe some water was getting into them and causing damage when it froze.   The transducer in my Minnkota  US2 is fine with freezing.

      I fished by the Lester area yesterday n today. I was in 75-78’ water. Had one school of coho’s chase my jig all the way to the bottom of the ice. I looked down the hole and was amazed by the fish just swarming around my jig and just nipping the tale. That was my very first time out there. Didn’t catch any, but seeing those fish made it all worth it. At Lester there is an Easier way out there if you go to the south side of the river. It’s an easier trail to follow out onto the lake. There must be some open water just north of there. There was a lot of mallards flying around and landing. ?

      I don’t have what your requesting , but you can do just as I did to verify such changes by calling the Mn DNR at 651-296-6157 ...

      When you rubbed your hand on the ducer before, did you notice a thin layer of ice on it?  I’m guessing No, with how you described the situation, but that can happen with a ducer that’s below freezing when you dunk it in the water.  It ruins sensitivity.     You’re open ice fishing, yes?  Not in the warmth of a house?  Like the others mentioned, could just be your graph doesn’t like the cold.  And it’s always better to have the depth range locked in than on auto.   Good luck Bob.

      Do you have a link to an article or regulation that shows the changes?
    • Wanderer
      Yeah, I think we’ve had enough.  The silver lining for me is I DONT plan on fishing this weekend.  But I do have to ready my sled for next weekend in ON.  I’m hoping the snow isn’t as bad up there.  Strange to think it’s a possibility but yeah, that’s how much we have in MN.   I kept my face plastered to the plane window going down to Denver on Monday.  The snow line peters out around the NE/CO border.  The only people not complaining about snow and cold at home were from CA!   I thought there was a noticeable lack of fishouses out on our MN lakes too.  I hope to get a good view of Mille Lacs when we come into Brainerd.  It was amazing how small the lake looked on the way out! 😄
