Anyone catch walleyes on either of these lakes? I live in Nowthen and have been thinking about trying one of these lakes.

Hello Ericwells,
I live on skogman, and not much happin'n as far as walleyes, my dad lives on the other side of the lake and caught three just b4 the new year, all were sent back and were the 9-12" size. That is all I have heard of so far. As far as S Stachfield, I don't have any good tips. Hope you do Well.- RR4

Hey Erik!
I've never ice-fished Skoogman. I have open water fished it with a buddy who lives on the lake. We have caught a few decent 'eyes trolling the weedline with shad raps.

I've never caught walleyes in stanchfield; but there is a real good panfish bite on the north end of the lake towards the end of the ice season. Good luck!

mistermom, thanks for the response. Not that I will be out fishing soon but I can still talk fishing. You know what I have begun to realize is if I want some decent walleye fishing I should be looking out towards Chisago area.

I think we may have had enough cold weather that trying the rum might not be a bad idea. In some real slackwater or backwater spots. I'm going to LOW next weekend. After that we should try something. Or we should get Pwaldo or Cory to take us out on Rush. I do know a little about N and S Center. Can both be good. My Aunt lives on S Center. Less than a month to go in season. Time flies.

mistermom, I will be game for sure. Zach is seven weeks old and quickly coming up on the eight week magic milestone (most start sleeping better at night). I am game for anything. I just want to have enough time to pound some water hard. A fishing trip to me is hitting the water early enough to do some scouting to put myself in the best position to catch some fish. It's the thrill of the chase as well as the catching for me. I'm flexible so just let me know.

Rushpointer, thanks for joining in. I will have to get out there sometime. Say do you ever fish long lake towards Isanti. I have caught crappies in numbers there before. Nothing bigger than 8inches but I have caught numbers. I guess I would like both numbers and size but I'll take catching over not catching.

Nope never tried Long, used to fish Stanchfield west of Grandy and catch some real slabs, some upwards to two pounds. Once the access went in the bigs guys were fished out pretty quick, it was a lot of fun as the depth out there only averaged four or five feet and some times you were diving for a disappearing rod. Have nailed some huge crappies on Goose from time to time, mostly during the last ice of the season(don't know where they are the rest of the year?)

My house is parked on Skogman now and it's giving up crappies consistently in the early afternoons through early evening. Looks like a fun lake for some northern tip-up fishing, according to the DNR report, will try it this weekend.

      Was on the US Side between Island View and the Brule for the last two days.  Tough sledding.  A few 15's for the cast iron, three over 22 and a lot of peanuts.  Nothing big, and not much luck marking pods of fish.  Probably spent as much time graphing as I did fishing.  Still shallow I think.  Casted shorelines and caught a few little smallmouth for fun.     Back at it next week Tuesday and Wednesday.  I'm going to go bottom bouncing in some deeper water and try a few trolling patterns with rapalas... see what happens.

      Hit the big pond today ,, Launched from McQuade and found a good 10 degree temp difference  from tea to clean water ,, Fish didn't cooperate like we planned but did go 5 for 7 in 7 hours trolling but that's fishing not catching ,, Great day spent on the water with pals ,,, Good luck to those who dont have 7 day weekends like us retired folks

      Haven't been active for some time.    Life can do that to you.    Changed jobs doing somewhat the same but what is different is I've been involved with the duty and honor of interment of our Nation's Veteran's.  I'm working at the new MN Veteran's Cemetery on Hwy 53 just North of Pike Lake.  I see myself doing this till its time to retire.   That and servicing Nils Master Blades during Winter months has been kept me extremely busy. Spring, Summer, and Fall is my personally resolution to enjoy my time and take to the water as much as possible. With that I'll share what I can.   Knowing you all have busy schedules too, I ask you share when you can.  We don't ask for your secret spots but share as you can.

      Catching blues under the bridge next to archery range in Shakopee on the Minnesota River. Water rescinding about 2ft a day.

      This forum Great Again.      Lets get some reports going on the Big lake going.  I know we have lurkers and that can share.  For those that don't know, you have tools at find patterns, water temps, mudlines, and surface temps.   Coastwatch for surface water temps.  http://www.coastwatch.msu.edu/superior/s1.html UMD Buoy Data for water temps. http://www.d.umn.edu/buoys/ Modis for mud lines.  https://coastwatch.glerl.noaa.gov/modis/modis.php?region=s&page=1&template=sub&image=a1.19170.1900.LakeSuperior.143.250m.jpg    Hottest tip I can give lately an the temp break has been right on the mud line.   Compare that data on your next trip out.

      I would think the different items would be marked, or do you mean they wear gloves over their eyes?  
    • NorthBound&Down
      Has anyone here fished silver creek before? I'm looking to try a new spot on the north shore but I cant find much information on it. If you have is it fairly easy to access fishing spots there?
    • delcecchi
      I can see how it could happen.  Remember that these days all the prep people are wearing gloves, so might not be able to feel any difference.   Or both could have been frozen...
    • macgruber
      Thanks for the tips, I’ll report back after and let you know how we do.  Very excited to get up there.....

      Well, my annual trip was only an extended weekend this year, as I had to use my actual vacation to go to Florida for a wedding.    Drove up Friday morning after work, and was able to hit Two Island Lake for a few hours in the evening. As soon as we boated to my secret spot, a storm cloud moved over and the wind was insane! Temps dropped, and I only caught a few smallies.   on Saturday we went to Greenwood Lake. Even though we caught about 50 bass, it was still a slow day. Weather was perfect. Bugs were horrible! My dad caught a nice lake trout. My daughter caught her first northern pike, and I also caught one. Fished this lake for 30 years and never even seen a pike, now they’re taking over!   Fished Hungry Jack on the final day. Weather was once again perfect! Only caught a few bass. My son absolutely loves fishing off the resort’s dock. So the kids had a blast catching sunnies (including my daughter’s first).    Was a bummer we only got to stay up there a few days. My dad stayed until today, but I haven’t heard how he did. Didn’t see any moose. Was also the first time I’ve been up there and did not catch a trout. We got our fill of Sven & Ole’s and world’s best donuts. We might try to go back up next month.
