Going out of Stocky's this weekend

Recommended Posts

wormfood

Heading up to the big pond and I am going to be staying in a rental at Stocky's with a couple other friends.

I am just looking for info on what's accessable from Stocky's and is close by that I could try during the day for perch. I don't want to be driving all over the ice.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks.

SW side of the lake just as you pass through Onamia. Another thing I forgot to ask and haven't seen in the forum is how much ice there is. I've got a power auger but I'm wondering if I'll need an extension...

Thanks for the tip Derek.

I fish out of Stocky's but haven't been up there as of late. If you go out of Stocky's Harbor follow the road to the group of houses out and to the right about 1/2 mile. Go left off of there and you'll find a reef tht comes up to 18-19 feet and drops off into the main lake. We have done well there for slots. Sorry I don't have better directions, but look for guys in portables as they are usually on the fish.

We ended up catching a couple eyes and a put friday night (no fish in the slot).

We managed to convince a couple nice perch to bite sat & sun with absolutely nothing over night! We saw a ton of perch on the camera but they just were not biting. 20+ mph winds and deadly cold probably didn't help much.

We tried to check out the recommended areas with the portable (not sure if we were in right spots) but we were marking fish but no bites. Probably drilled about 50 holes in varying depths with no luck except a bad case of chilly feet!

Overall it was a fun weekend as the rental shack was da bomb! Now all I have to do is stop by Dewey's and pick up my pillow that I forgot in the shack. My wife just hates the fact that the pillow cases goes with the sheets we have and how could I forget it up there! Ha! Thanks again for the tips, maybe next time...

Sounds like you were in the average catch rates of what's been going on up there this year. Dewey's a great guy, you'll get that pillow back for sure. Sounds like a bad weekend for searching out of the cozy cabin.

      I started a thread on HSO too but might get a little more input here?     Anyone got plans for the season?  Anything new or anyplace new you’ve been waiting to try?   Well, I finally practiced with the Blackhorn and 209As.  Seems like the combo lives up to its reputation.     Only question now is: Will I use it this season???  Seems like a dumb question but I’m not feeling short on venison and have been hunting every weekend since September 22nd, ‘cept last weekend.  Felt kinda good sleepin’ in for a change.    The SIL might have some private ground for us to try so that could play into the motivation factor big time.   So, yeah, I guess that’s 2 new potential things to look forward to.

      Grab a Kleenex. 😢Its the bitter sweet end of summer. Its time to put the boat away as ice fishing season approaches. I'm joined by James and Joel and get a great interview from both of them. I think they are ready for ice fishing! Get outdoors and enjoy it with the ones you love the most. Be AWESOME everyone.

      11/11/18     Winter rolled in early last week. Lots of ducks blew through central MN during the week with the small water freezing up. We got in a good hunt on a large, shallow central MN lake as the migration was happening. Many of the larger lakes in central MN froze up with the single digit lows Saturday morning. We broke some ice at the landing of a large, deep lake and boated through some ice to get out to the otherwise open lake to hunt a main lake point. My son, Dad, and I managed five ducks, though we mostly saw swans, common mergansers, goldeneyes, and buffleheads. My son wanted one nice drake bufflehead, so we took that as our fifth duck. Not sure if any water is going to be open after another night in single digits this upcoming week, but we will check it out this weekend. If not, we will be onto field hunting as a lot of mallards and geese hang out on a river in the area we hunt. Good luck, be safe, stay warm, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      How about a good old fashioned polaroid camera to populate your board?

      Update: Grand Lake is froze over as far as I could tell. Someone walked out and drilled a couple holes on Pearl. Did not go out and look how much ice. And Goodner is completely froze there was also a hole made with a chisel. Saw the block of ice on top of the ice. (Looked to me from shore to be 3-4 inch thick, don’t take my word it’s just a guess from what I saw.)

      Has anyone ever fished these lake? Tamarack..Grace..etc.  DNR site looks decent for these, but I heard that some of those lakes out there get some “unexpected” visitors? Trible controlled areas?   Just curious on access of these and whatever other info anyone has.     Thank you

      I wish we didn’t have the warmer temps forecasted for the next week or so. If it was like it’s been the last few days with at night a few degrees below zero and in the low 20s during the day. But nope it’ll be sometime Before even the smaller bodies of water are “safe”. I really wanted to get out this Saturday but looks like that won’t happen. But maybe the saterday after thanksgiving I’m hoping may work out. I hate this time of year having to wait but that’s how it goes!
