I've caught some decent crappies and sunnies through the ice on Fannie. I do know there are some monster largemouth in there, but that darn ice makes flippin' the cattails a little tough this time a year.

Fannie and Skogman can be great panfish lakes, And both can be phenominal pike lakes!

Good point, Cory!

In all seriousness, a buddy of mine went ice fishing on Winnebago in Wisconsin a couple years ago and fished walleyes in 6 or 7 feet of water right in the cane beds. They used 3 foot rods that had the action of a pool cue, 50lb. braided line, and a drag locked down with a vise grip. He said he didn't even reel when an eye slammed the bait. He just walked backwards. That's about as close to winter flippin' as you're gonna get.

COOOL!~

I would LOVE to give that whirl! Maybe use the flippin sticks and stand 10 feet from the hole!
What a cure for cabin fever! Now! If I could only figure out how to drill a hole under a dock??? Keep my skipping fresh!

I have only been out there once 2 years ago. Put some tip ups out but no flags. However i have a buddy that spear fishes it and has seen plenty of big pike and some huge bass. Some pike he said that would go 15lbs and i have seen the pics.He usaully sets up straight across from the landing by the cattails.

I live right by Fannie and will try to remember to check the ice tomorrow and give you guys an update.

Last year Fannie was listed as one of the top 5-8 pan fish lakes(can't remember which mag, I think it was MN Sportsman).

I'll shoot you the ice report tomorrow evening, if all goes well/ I remember. Life has been hectic.

Fannie ice check @ 4:00 p.m. 12/11/03,

I went to the north end access off of HWY 95 and found that there was 5 1/2 inches. I put the spud bar through about 100 feet out.

The South East side access had 6 inches.

There were two- four wheelers out on the ice outside a shanty.

A snowmobiler was driving around out there also, he appeared to have no worries.

Be safe- RR4

      My second year owning a cabin on Pine Island and this lake is humbling. We did ok Memorial weekend catching many small ones. I did catch my best walleye on the lake with a 24” off the dock. Didn’t do well this last weekend as it sounds I shouldn’t have forgot the leeches in the fridge. I hope to have better luck this weekend. It is still tough to have to come home and go back to work.

      I have got to find out how to do this photo shop stuff. It would be fun pranking the relatives on FB. No really I did catch those walleyes Machu Picchu!  😂

      No treeline in first pic cuz I was on the ocean… LOL  would be tooooo easy for leech to find so had to zap it.

      Hey, I recognize that spot!! I caught a couple fish there once!!
    • eyeguy 54
      Got the boat upgraded with  different depth finders and trolling motor so I could chase walter and had to test it today. Hit a local lake with a friend and we got 7.  Pulled spinners and slow death with 1 oz bouncers. First time after eyes with this boat.

      How did the pizza taste? I'm thinking that might not be too bad!

      Bowkill78, Most everything is going some place on the Clearwater lake. Bass, pike and walleyes. It all depends on your choice of equipment and what you hope to try for.  Panfish and bass are on beds, trolling can also hookup with a pike or walleye.

      Give them all a shot you will be there for 5 days.  Get a lake map before you go and look it over. It makes it easier for the resort folks to point out spots instead of just saying over there. 😀
