Late fishing report

Recommended Posts

Guest

New here, as you can see. Been reading but not writing.This is only my 2nd year ice fishing Mille Lacs so I am no expert but this is what I got...
we are in 32 ft of water 15 ft behind us is 28 ft of water and 15 ft ahead is 35 ft of water.We are on a mud flat.All Saturday afternoon the boy and I caught nothing..at 1am a rattle went off and we got a 26incher and then nothing.....until about 8:30am and we had a heck of a time keeping up with 4 rattle wheels until about 9:45am and they just shut down.We landed four 25,25,27,5 and missed about that many.They were biting pink or orange and fatheads.WE fish every weekend and this is the best we have done so far,but this is also the first time on the mud this year.. I hope this helps you all.

Invadersmn..took me awhile to find a spot that interstate 94 didn't pass thru there is another guy out there but he's real good about driving way around us but if you email me at [email protected] I can give you a little info off my GPS..there is alot of heaves on the way but I have the crossings marked also..I will be out there Sat morning with the old man so hopfully this cold snap didn't screw it up,but maybe not it was cold weekend before last and we did ok then also.

I am also coming up on Sat and will be fishing out of Macs. I think we will be fishing out of portables as our permanant is still in the bay and we do not want to pay them to move it, to get no fish where we move it to either. How deep are you getting the perch? I have not been up there for a month and the reports I have seen have not been real promising or given me much to go on.

good report! a buddy and i have also been doing well on mille lacs. not close to last year, but we have averaged 9 fish per day the last few times out. even 3 slots 1 day, still tossed em back. i think the key this winter was avoiding the crowds, the closest house to us was 3/4m. away, mostly sets w/ bigger shiners. not a perch caught.

I am going to the West side this weekend. How far out do think I need to go to catch some fish? What do they seem to be feeding on?

      What kind of childhood dreams do you have? Have you accomplished them? I have always wanted to ice fish from a snow fort. Well, my dream has come true. Its never to late to make your dreams come true. Be Awesome Outdoors.

      Update on driving on Bald Eagle anybody

      I recently met up with my buddy Al to check out a small lake that I had never fished before (Al had only open water fished it). We didn't get to the lake until after sundown and we immediately started drilling holes looking for fish. It didn't take us too long to find an area that the fish were frequenting. We caught a couple fish and set up the flipover. We wound up getting into some nice Crappies and to our surprise some really nice Sunfish. I would really like to get back to this lake soon to explore some new areas and learn it a bit more as it definitely has quality fish!

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much. 
    • Spearing Machine
      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!
