Just did some fishing on Pine Lake this past Wed. and caught numerous amounts of northerns. And one 16" walleye. Was the walleye a fluke or is there a certain way to catch more in these shallow waters?

Good for you. I have fished Pine Lake with very little in the way of eye's. The walleye that I have caught on Pine Lake have come at dusk. I will usually troll shallow running cranks just as the sun sets. It seems no matter what I do before sunset, I can't keep the pike off. But it seems that when it starts getting dark the pike stop and the walleye come out and feed near the surface for a short time. So this is the only way I have been able to catch walleye on Pine Lake. The eye's I have caught are all nice. the biggest being 27" and the smallest just under 20". I've also heard that using a slip bobber on the shallow bars at night also works, but have never tried.

Good Luck...

Where is this Pine lake? I fished a pine lake out towards Bagley area during the winter and got a nice one I was just wondering where this pine lake was located at.

I have never went ice fishing there, but have thought about it many times.

I got a 29 1/2 inch 8.65 pound walleye during the winter out there up shallow. The walleyes were hiding in the weeds during the day and were moving out of them towards evening. I have only fished the lake once. Did notcie there where a lot of little northerns though. Can't help ya out any more.

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
