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.

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
