Tips on northern fishing on URL

Recommended Posts

fishing addict

I am heading up this sunday and monday to do some fishing. I am looking for some tips on northern fishing. I will be going out of hillman's. What depths, presentation, bait,etc.. should i consider. should I just use suckers or dead bait (smelt/ciscoes). What is usually the best time to fish for them? thanks for any info.

I don't think it matters where you try for pike because there isn't much structure so I think they roam around-I just set my tip-ups where I plan on crappie fishing for the night bite 13-14'. Can't go wrong with a nice big live sucker but I'm sure frozen ciscoes and smelt work just fine also. Set one flag 2 feet off bottom and one 2 feet below the ice and see which gets hit more often and adjust accordingly. I caught a 38 incher just under the ice two weeks ago just as the sun was setting but we had flags all day. Have fun good luck and remember CPR saves lives!

Guilty as charged!-Hey Gordon,how'd you know? Your powers of deduction are sharp. Have you been up to the Red yet? I only made it up once and probably won't be back until the 1st weekend of Feb but am just as excited about fishing tip-ups all day as I am for slabs in the evening! Say hello to the rest of the crew and I hope we can hook up on the ice sometime this winter-tight lines!

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.
