Flats?

Recommended Posts

Fathead

Hello all,

Wondering if anyone has been out on the flats lately? Namely the eastern flats...Boot, Fishers, Blue Jug, Agates Needle (technically a north flat)?

I have not seen much traffic on this subject, which leads me to believe that either people are not fishing them much, or they're keeping their successes Hush Hush.

Six of us are heading out to Fishers (we think) this Saturday. Last year we did very well for both eyes and perch (however, last year was a good year everywhere).

Just looking for feedback on whether you have been out there, if things are going, and what seems to be the setup that has been the "ticket".

Has anyone been drving out to these flats from Terry" Boat Harbor? How far are people driving trucks out. Sorry to ask this question but as of the recent weather, I opt not to fish the big lake yet.

On sunday while driving down 169 between Garrison and the Casino, there was a really large yellow sign that advertised "Road to the Flats $7" Sorry I can't be more specific about the location or the name of the resort, I wasn't paying too close attention. Hope that helps.

Stay away from Terry's Boat Harbor. They dont have access to the flats and the place is a dump and hes a bad attitude. No customer service at all.

I have to disagree on Terry's, the crew there usually provides really good info(usually the best I can get on Milly) They are fair and nice to easy to get along with. To be fair, yes the place is kind of a dive. I don't think you will see him or any other resort owners post on here though, seems like they never do. Every year he plows roads to the flats like 8 mile and Seguchie. I stoped in and talked to him 2 weeks ago and people were only allowed to go out in wheelers to the flats and I doubt he has had enough cold weather since then to make a road. Other great resorts to go out of are Myr mar(usually plows out to 8 mile) and Red door(plows to a number of smaller flats like bombeck) Both run a clean 1st class operation and seem to appreciate the business and want to help you find fish.

      No change from the weekend. We've barely been able to drop down to 20 for overnight lows this week. Not losing but definitely not gaining. 9-11 inches with a few spots still with a little less. We'll lose a fair amount of the 3 inches of lake snow over the next 2 days.

      This will be third year using the ice armor gloves, first year I used a pair of extreme mitts. They were nice and warm but hard to do any thing with them on. 2 years ago I recived a pair of extreme gloves and those are much better. Not as warm but a lot more movable and I can fish with them on. Last year I recived a pair of edge gloves. Those are really nice to, warm and I can easily fish with them on. I like having two pairs one I’m wearing and the other as backup.

      That sounds like me. All week I’ve been slowly dragging along, felling terrible. But I go fishing no matter how I feel.

      Had a plan to get out today with a good partner but he came down sick.  Still keeping the day off from work and catching up on gear maintenance and get a couple new set ups going.  Will get out this afternoon to check one of two lakes that were on my hit list last year I never made it to.  Tomorrow I might connect with a buddy in the Aitkin area.   Good luck All. 🙂

      Any update on ice thickness?
    • BobT
      The ice around here is extremely unpredictable; 12" here and 6" just a short distance away and even open water. I've seen vehicles out but unless you've checked the ice yourself along the entire path you plan to take, I wouldn't do it.

      I think there is a new Meatstick out for about $40.  I haven't seen them in person yet, so I can't tell you how good they are.

      I’m loading up the wheeler in the morning. I’ll throw the otter in the truck and planning on slaying the perch, gills, crappies and maybe pike. Should be a good day to test out the new auger mounts for the ATV. Planning to stay Mobil for a few hours then setup the hub and be comfortable. I’ve fished the lake I’m going to a few times this year already and have done well. Last time out there we had abou 7-1/4” ice so last I hear there was 10-11”. So should be plenty good for atv traffic as there’s zero snow on most lakes anymore.

      Awesome! Good luck! We saw some light portables being brought out by ATV last Friday on the N and W sides.

      Was out Thursday drilling holes on Lake 1. The whole northern half of the lake I found 9 to 10 inches. Very consistent. Drilled about 20 holes.😁😂
