Has anyone ventured out on to Pokegama? How are the crappies or eye's biting?

How's the ice?

sunrise,

I've only been there once, and it was so-so for panfish. One spot seems to be about the same as the others, so be prepared to cover some ground.

I haven't heard anything on walleyes.

The ice was good, but I wouldn't drive on it yet. Be careful crossing the pressure ridge at the lake's midpoint.

Out on Thursday. The bite was slow only cought 6 small northers about 2lbers. Real reason was to test the new LX3 I got for xmas from santa. I truly love the machine. Cannot believe i have fished all this time with out one. Was fishing in 19ft of water using gold swedish pimples with minnow heads. Alot of atv traffic out there. Wish i had one had to walk out about a mile.

Thanks everyone for the replies. I was out last friday and ended up with 2 crappies.

We fished south of the island and on the southwest side of the lake. Very slow action.... But, I am still going back. I like the size of the crappies we caught smile.gif

Does anyone know if there is any "hot" times to fish on this lake? I have fished 2-7pm two different days and this doesn't seem to be the time. Although, by reading everyone's reports it seems to be slow anytime right now.

I fished Pokegama the week between xmas and last weekend. Pretty slow. Fished all over and every location was about the same. Find the deeper water > 17ft and you should have a bit of luck. Caught a few small crappies every day. Minnow heads seem to work best. Caught a monster sunny one day mixed with a few crappies, but only managed the one sunny. One northern caught the whole week. This was pretty disappointing.

Good Luck,
T

      Fished the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Dakota lithium has a cool little box like that.  Comes with a lithium battery thats half the weight but a bit pricey at around $200

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.

      Open water right in front of launch on linwood. 2 guys went through this morning. Up to their waists in water. Just be careful walking out. Had 9 inches everywhere I drilled on the lake.
