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.

Anybody have any recent reports? Thinking of maybe trying it there this weekend. As always, thanks in advance.

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

      I also have a north facing cabin at the bottom of the hill and I have the Weboost as well.  without it I just barely have reception and with it mounted to the outside of the cabin I can get enough reception for calla and texts (2-3 bars) and slow internet. I plan on mounting it in a tree this spring and should get better reception yet. I paid $399 at best buy for mine about a year ago.

      cg2, Welcome to the forum.   You may try looking at the DNR Lake finder site to look up some of the lakes in your new area for their test results.  Good luck.

      Hello all,   I am new to the area and don't know where to begin fishing. I'm looking for a lake around Mankato that has walleye / crappies in it. I would like to make it out a few times this fall yet and then hit the ice hard. Any advice on what lakes to start with? There's so many that I don't know how to choose which one to go to.

      Gonna try and get out for a bit over the weekend and hit some shore spots. Will post a report if they bite.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.
