6 mile lake

Recommended Posts

I just checked out the dnr lake survey results and was amazed at the number of huge perch the DNR netted during the survey shocked.gif (almost 300 fish 9-11") . Has anyone fished it lately. A friend of mine suggested it as an alternate when winnie is slow, or crowded as he fishes it for the walleye opener every year and gladly take a limit of jumbo's home with him in the process. I am heading to URL the first week of april and thinking of hitting Winnie and now maybe Sixmile while I'm at it. I am guessing that the saddle out from the landing (7' to 40' back to 7') will be good so that's where I'll start looking in 28-35'. Any suggestions on where to fish it would be helpful. Thanks

I HAVE ALSO SEEN THE SAME DNR REPORT AND IT ALSO GOT MY ATTENTION, BUT I HAVE NEVER FISHED IT. WE HAVE STAYED AT CHERNEYS RESORT SEVERAL TIMES BUT FISHED WINNIE. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYONE OUT ON THE ICE, AND BUTCH CHERNEY ICE FISHES WINNIE FOR PERCH! MAKES YOU WONDER WHY. MAYBE THE FISH ARE WORMY BUT THATS ONLY A GUESS. GOOD LUCK, I THINK THE AREA YOU WANT TO FISH SHOULD BE A GOOD PLACE TO START. POST A TOPIC AND LET US KNOW HOW YOU DO.

I've fished six mile several times on open water.I have never really caught, seen or heard of anybody nailing big perch on that lake, thats kinda interesting, If you do try it I would be interested in how you did. It is a good sandy bottom not a lot of muck so the Perch should be good,not alot of worms. Good luck.

My wife and I fish Cherneys 6mile lake for 28 years. Fishing is excellent! Opener is always a good catch for nice Walleyes and plenty of perch to take home. And oh! you could'nt ask for better hospitality by Butch and Pam Cherney and there children there wonderful. A good place for perch is on top of the cribs that were hand made and placed in the lake. Straight across from the resort the Indian cabin over there is a hot sopt in the weeds for perch. We know the lake pretty well and enjoy it. [email protected]

      The people that used to fish Mille Lacs are migrating north because of all the issues down there.  The resort where I stay (on LOW) has noticed a large increase in Mpls traffic.  I believe fishing pressure is rising up north because of this.  Another thing is boats are much bigger now than 10 years ago allowing more people to get on the big water more easily along with the wheelhouse frenzy on the ice.  It all adds up to more fish harvest.   Don't think ML will ever get back to anything close to what it was.

      Jetsky, I was skunked yesterday afternoon in Frazer, but did very well today (9:30-11:15, 4:00-5:30) . 20-25 feet, jig or Lindy with a leech or crawler

      I take it medals are for carp only? I'll try and make it. Love me some carp.

      Awesome Hoey. Fished yesterday and today (wed) and the bite is good. Tues morning had no wind so there were a few hundred fish flies in the boat and your ears and most everywhere until the wind picked up midday. Caught a bunch of nice . eaters in 5 - 8 feet of sand.  Bigger fish are showing up on the reefs. Not all rocks seem to have fish, but most do. The best bite is probably in the mud. Fish flies everywhere and today lots of mayfly action up north. Lots of fish in 30+ right now. This is such an awesome lake. Good luck

      Well said, Hoey. Regarding large walleyes eating small walleyes...…...a number of large walleyes every year chow down on my yellow, chrome and red (clown) Rapala TDD 11's, black headed white bodied and polka dotted (wonderbread)Reef Runners and a full spectrum of colored shad raps......not 1 of which resembles natural baitfish. So large walleyes won't gobble down a native fish of small proportions? Gimme a break. We need to insure that LOW does not become the new Mille Lacs. By the way, fishing is fantastic on ML currently. Pretty much all bigger fish. I would hate to not have a fish dinner after a day on the lake.

      If fan selection is set to high or low fan runs all the time. Set fan control to auto, fan starts and stops with compressor run.

      got an answer from coleman mach- they said all of their AC units are compatible with a thermostat, but you would also need to install a control box as well for the thermostat to communicate with it

      Thanks Cliff.  I was pretty sure you weren't using both at same time because law and because a itty bitty shad rap wouldn't get down that deep.  😀

      Was up over the weekend and fished Friday and Saturday for an hour or two each day.  Couldn't get a bite on a leech but rainbows were the ticket.  Walleyes were on very narrow window of feeding but when they did bite caught 6 slot fish 22-26.  All healthy and spitting up 2-6 inch perch in the net.  Green beads and Red beads on a 6 foot lindy drifting about 0.7 in 13-16 feet of water.  Find the bait balls on the sonar and look for the walleyes underneath.  No keepers but that's ok the slot fish were sure fun
