Good spot for eyes this weekend?

Try Lake Minnewaska! If you put a minnow on you should catch at least 1 walleye on the Starbuck end. Good luck

Thanks for the info, really appreciate it...

What type of depths do you fish out there - I was looking at the map and I don't see much structure. I have never been to this lake but willing to give it a try.

Also, where is the best access, and do you know anywhere in Starbuck to stay at night?

Is it strictly an evening bite? Anything else good to catch there if the eyes are slow?

Thanks!!

Hi:

I am thinking of coming up this weekend from the TCs. Can anyone offer a good location for eyes? Not looking for size, just a good bite.

I came up last winter and fished Reno and Miltona and caught zero walleyes but some nice fat perch.

Thanks for your help!!

The alexandria chain could be a good bet this weekend. Geneva typically has a good early ice bite, and you can always chase the crappies if the 'eyes are finnicky. Miltona has been pretty hot...the west bay has the best ice (only ice till this week!)...not much for size, but you can almost bet a sure limit and plenty of action between 4pm and 5:30....fish just off the break in about 20-21 feet....jigging spoon and fathead, or jig and shiner. Reno has quite a few houses already, and crappies can entertain you there too. LeHommeDieu is starting to get some attention too....

Good luck this weekend...stop in if you can, let us know how it goes!

AK~

There is a nice hotel thats pretty new right in Starbuck, I cant remember what its called. As far as an access you just park down at the Waters Edge (its a bar restraunt right in Starbuck) walk out to where the fishhouses are and start catching walleyes. When the sun hits the treetops the fish start to go crazy. Its usually tough to keep your lines in the water at that time of the day. Lots of small ones but you will get some eaters.

      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
