Just Some Action

Recommended Posts

vexalicious

I have a friend that is coming down from the cities this friday and he would like to go ice fishing. I have a few lakes in mind including swenson, eagle, and kandi. He has never really ice fished before so i would like to put him on some fish if at all possible. Just wondering if anyone would have any suggestions for some action. Doesn't have to be anything spectacular, just some fish. Thanks

If you bring him to Kandi. you can catch lot's of small walleye and some decent perch during the day as well. Just be careful of the ice out there! Good luck!

Thanks for the info. I have a Ford Ranger pickup and was wondering if the pickups that have been going through are full size. I know i should use cautiuon no mater what but i was just wondering. How far would we have to walk to get to a spot to catch fish.

Ranger should be fine. It was a full size 4-wheel drive but he just hit a bad spot. They have it marked now. I'd head for the SE side of the Big Island, access that from Park 1 or the West end of Northern Lights Beach on the South Shore. You can go on at Park 2 on the North shore and then go East out in front of the cabins on the NE corner of the lake. There are several houses there with big trucks parked by them. You should get some decent perch action there. Good Luck and just watch where you go, for the most part it's been pretty good out there. 22 hours and I'm headed for 90 degrees and a weeks worth of "slurping"! smile.gifsmile.gif

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.

      6/22/18     West Metro Water temp is in the 70's and sunfish are up on the beds. Look for harder bottom areas inside of or adjacent to softer bottom with weeds. The smaller females will be staging over the weeds--you may see them boiling--and the big bulls will be guarding the nests (beds) on the firmer bottom. Got my son and Dad out to catch a bunch this morning.  Ultralight 7' spinning rods/reels with four pound test Berkley Nanofil works great to cast to these bedding fish from a distance and get a good hook set. We use a 1/16 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig tipped with a 1" to 1.5" soft plastic (minnow, grub, tube, etc.) under a slip float to adjust for beds at different depths. Usually you will be targeting 2-8 feet of water, depending on water clarity. Take care not to keep everything you catch. It is fine to keep a fresh meal once in a while--sunfish is awfully tasty--but put plenty of fish, including the biggest bulls, back. Needed to keep the natural cycle of reproduction going. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Fished the lake this morning ,,, water temps were 72-74 and the flys were hatching ,,, unhooking the walleyes they were coughing up fly larvae,,, Need to power wash the boat now ,,, No keepers today but lots of overs and 2 unders mixed in with some pike and sunnies on flicker minnows ,,, Go figure

      Thanks everyone for the feedback. I was beginning to think I lost my touch. Took a beating this winter, but hopefully it will come back again. Also would like to see some more restrictions on the crappies. Time to start checking the deeper weed beds I guess. I know the water temps have been fluctuating a lot this spring and maybe they skipped the spawn.

      Crappies have been hard for me to pin down on other waters as well.  Seems they are not were they usually are and I wonder if the weird winter to summer transition is to blame.  Time to start looking in other parts of the water column.

      There is a fishing dock north of the Sorlie Bridge on the ND side or from the shore, downstream of the dam by the walking bridge on the north side of town on the ND side or on the MN side, at the mouth of the Red Lake River just SW of Cabelas are all pretty good options.
