SOUTH/EAST FISHING

Recommended Posts

Will be up this weekend to fix up the ice house a bit before it gets too cold. Planning on putting the boat in the water for a while too. Will likely be during the day mostly with possibility of a little night fishing for one night. What is recommended during the day/evening? Will be near Brandts during the day and Hunters Point overnight. Lindy rig or Bobber fish during the day? Sloppy Joes or 5 mile? etc.

Thanks - Camo

Camoman,

Sounds pretty much like what I'll be doing. We're going to be at Brandt's working on our ice house also. We plan to bring the boat and do strictly night fishing. If you have a chance, stop by the ice house during the day. We'll be all the way in the back of the lot towards the pine trees (tan sided house with truck/boat combo in front). Hopefully we can exchange info...or at least stop and have a beer.

Tonka Boy -
We will likely be repairing the ice house sometime Saturday. Dont know yet if we are heading up Friday night or Sat morning. We will be at one of the first houses as you enter the storage lot. (The 8x12 Camo house - imagine that...) Swing by if you see us or we will look on the end for you.
Good Luck

Was on Mille Lacs last weekend, caught 4 fish Thursday night and was blown off Fri and Sat. Poblably could have toughed it out but after golfing 18 holes and the fact the Twins were on TV, well, let's just say I wussed out. One thing I did notice however was the fish were in towards shore, not on the reef's. Caught nothing on the reef's and caught the 4 trolling just off shore. I would suggest you start trolling off shore before heading out to the reef's.

Kidd-

How deep were you running? At the edge of the first break, or further in?

FishNChester. Fished the east side and stayed in about 6 - 10 ft. Number 9 Rap with a 1/4 oz split shot about 3 feet up the line. Try to keep your speed to under 1.5 mph.
Forgot to mention, I was anywhere from 10 - 30 yards from shore.
Good luck.

      I'd like to ice fish the lake it sounds like great fishing right now......but no walleye.....wtf. It's been messed up for a few years......

      Could not agree more...; but with Garmin Pan it's a bit cumbersome...

      Yesterday and today the combines got back to work. Hunted a management area next to a fresh picked corn field. Got a couple nice roosters which both flushed at about 15-20 yards. Saw several others that flushed way out in front of me. Not many other hunters out there yet.  Drove past several fields that were just combined today and there were a few places that had some really deep ruts from either combines or the tractors pulling wagons. Didn't see any of the big combines unloading directly into semi's so the ground must still be pretty soft if their not driving the trucks into the fields. About half the combines were in corn and the others getting after beans.  Weather this weekend should a little breezy and cool for Saturday with a high in the low 40's. There's a 30% chance of precipitation for Saturday. Should warm up a bit on Sunday.

      I've run an fl12 for six years now, occasionally it gets noisy but has been doing the job. Last year on lotw we had 4 vexilars going in a small area and even with the different interference settings I got feedback. One guy had a hummingbird 55 ice and had zero issues even when his was shut off still had issues. Maybe when I'm done with school I'll upgrade to something with a GPS and lake map

      Have to say it. I don't believe there is "A BEST" unit out there. Just about all of them will suit someone's needs depending on how you use them and what you expect from them. If funds are not a limitation I would recommend looking at the Garmin Ice units with Panoptix or now you can adapt Livescope to the ice. Lots of Panoptix videos out there, but Livescope is new to the ice and the open water videos are amazing. Love mine. Sold all my flashers, my LX 6 and Helix units. My opinion for what it's worth.

      Yep I've been seeing it almost daily since Friday on the south end of the bay. Getting me excited! Time to winterize the lund. It was a good run again this year!

      Omg. @Parmer I totally forgot about the Zoom, tells ya' how far my mind is from ice season yet. I do use it, but not whole lot, usally for perch fishing. Most of my Walleye are caught shallow.  
    • Parmer
      All I use is an fl8. I have had it like 16 years.  I guess I don't really believe in the zoom and all that stuff.  Think the fl8 reads fish pretty good.  And I hardly get any interference like my buddies, with there fancy Marcum's lol.

      First fish today was a big fat grey 30 incher, so as a guide the pressure was off right away. Steady action spot locked jigging in 30 feet of water with frozen shiners. By noon we needed 1 Sauger and one Walleye. At 3pm we got a nice Walleye so we quit at 3:30 one Sauger short. It was still pretty windy this morning but from the SW so fishing wasnt too tough. Had to toss the anchor at 2:30 the 3 batteries in the Terrova were spent, thats how windy it was this morning. Here are the pics
