first time at Dickies

Recommended Posts

Red

7 of my buddies and I head to Mille Lacs every winter for a couple long weekends away from the women and ice fishing (boozing). This year we decided to try out Dickies for house rentals. Has anyone had any luck there recently? Last year we only caught some pout at Scenic Bay. We wanna get some eye's and perch this year. Any advice would be appreciated. Or stop by the ice house (I have no idea which one) for cocktail hour which starts when we arrive and ends when we leave.

Fished all weekend off of road B out of Dickies. Only got two 6" 'eyes and one 7" perch. Marking little perch constantly. Fished Sloppy Joes Saturday evening...nothing in 28'. Gonna have to move the shack out deeper I think. I saw a few slot eyes come off of Hennipen though.

My bros and some friends will be at Dickies this weekend. We've been there a couple of times before and always had a great time. We've tried other resorts, but Dickies is the best. Never caught much fish, but we party like rock stars!! We'll be in shack #35. Stop by and have a beer with us. Hope some of you guys. ROCK ON!!

Alright some fellow members heading up on the 31st.(HURRAY MY BIRTHDAY!!!)Best present ever would be a 32in. wally-gator. But anyways me and 11 other, innocent until proven guilty in a court of law,individuals will be out there to, sound like we will be neighbors. Im sorry, but take no responsibility. I'm in for some serious fishin though, I'm bringing my portable and gear so stop by, have a gallon or two of beer and we can venture out. I have a grey F1-50 with a toolbox on it.


Let hook up, and get shook up.

      Good bite in the East end this weekend.  No big ones but lots of eater size walleyes coming to the boat.  Even got a bonus chewy, gave my seven year old all he could handle!

      WOW!!!

      Here a picture taken by Becky Nelson from Intl Falls facing north towards Fort Frances around 8pm...

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's
    • delcecchi
      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck
