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.
