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.

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.

      Thank you Vermilliongold. This took care of the problem.

      Yes it is open. It is $7.00 this year. It is a nice access and I use it every time instead of one of the public accesses. It is on Hwy 24 & county rd 39. It is a little old lady that owns it and collects the money. There is a bucket and notepad to write your plate number on if she isn't home.

      We have rented a cabin on Sylvan Lake between Pillager and Brainerd for the family this weekend. My 13 year old really would like to find some bass and pike. I have never fished the lake and don't fish for bass or pike often, does anyone have a fishing report and tips of what depth/lures to use? We do have a boat to get around the lake.  TIA

      Lake is connected to two others with zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a report of a zebra mussel in East Loon Lake in Otter Tail County. East Loon Lake is between and connected to East Spirit Lake and Sybil Lake, both of which were confirmed as having zebra mussels in 2016.  A lake user contacted the DNR after finding a single adult zebra mussel in East Loon Lake, which DNR specialists confirmed through photos and the specimen itself. No additional zebra mussels were found during a follow-up survey. “It’s helpful that an alert individual contacted us when they suspected they’d found a zebra mussel,” DNR assistant invasive species specialist Mark Ranweiler said. “Because they kept the zebra mussel, we were able to confirm the species identification.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft and trailers of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees for at least two minutes or 140 degrees for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Zebra mussels can compete with native species for food and habitat, cut the feet of swimmers, reduce the performance of boat motors, and cause expensive damage to water intake pipes. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species. More information is available at mndnr.gov/ais.

      ....is a City Park.  Land of Memories  with a lot of Minnesota and Blue Earth River shore access and I believe you can access the confluence of the rivers there as well.   Another attraction not really connected to fishing is Minneopa State Park with the falls on one side of the road and drive through buffalo herd area on the other.  Parks require a car window sticker for entrance.   Good Luck

      I like them when it's dead calm they seem to work great then. When it gets a little ripple on top not as effective but still learning with them. Thanks for the report jigginjim

      class of 70 here, and the park across the river  is Land of Memories if I remember correctly...

      Anglers can play a role in a proposed fishing regulation change for northern pike on Lake Vermilion that would simplify northern pike regulations by bringing them in line with the new statewide zone regulation starting in May 2019.  Anyone who wants to ask questions and give input about the regulation proposal can attend an open house scheduled by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources for 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22, at the Tower Civic Center, 402 Pine St., in Tower, Minn. Lake Vermilion northern pike are currently managed under a special regulation that requires all pike from 24 to 36 inches long to be released and only one fish over 36 inches is allowed in a three-fish possession limit. Under the northeast pike zone regulation, all fish from 30 to 40 inches long must be released and no more than one over 40 inches is allowed to be kept in a two fish possession limit. Spearers would be allowed to take any size pike but would be allowed only one fish over 26 inches in the two fish possession limit. “We are interested in the public’s preference about this because either regulation will help maintain the size of pike anglers enjoy on Lake Vermilion,” said Edie Evarts, Tower area fisheries supervisor. “Northern pike have done well and average size has increased under the special regulation that began in 2003. But a shift to the statewide zone regulation would simplify regulations while still protecting a portion of pike.” Public comment on the pike regulation can be submitted through Wednesday, Sept. 26. Questions or comments may be directed to the Tower area fisheries office, 650 Highway 169, Tower, MN 55790, by calling 218-300-7803, or emailing [email protected] Additionally, an open house about this proposal and other fishing regulations under review is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sept. 26 at the DNR Central Office, 500 Lafayette Road in St. Paul. Staff will take comments on this proposal and other fishing regulations under review around the state. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
