St. Paul panfish lake??

Recommended Posts

climbmda

Hi all. I'm going to be in St. Paul for Xmas Eve ans Xmas. I'm thinking of getting out for a few hours on Friday morning before the Vikes game. I'd like to be close.

Anyone have any suggestions for a decent panfish bite over there. I'll be in the area of Como, and anthing within 20 minutes of there, or so, would be great.

I'm not looking for specific hotspot, just a lake with potential. I'll do my own hunting.

Thanks.

climbmda, Owasso has about 15 trillion crappies in it. I've never fished it early ice, but I know late ice the things will hit nearly anything dangled under the ice.

Lake Johanna in Arden Hills has some nice sunnies in it if you can find them.

Gervais has some decent sunnies and perch. Use bigger minnows to keep away from the small perch.

como has some pretty big crappies in it, but you have to get close to the aerator to get them. The crappies in owasso are all around 4", but people do catch some decent ones out of wabasso.

This is all new water to me. If anyone is interested in going out Friday morning, I'd love to link up for some fishing. Or if anyone had any tips they don't want to post, I can be emailed at climbmda71@aol.com.

Any ice reports on these lakes?

I was thinking of heading out to josephine friday morning for some eyes, then i might be going to turtle or owasso after that for some tip-up fishing at owasso or craps at turtle. Look for my car it is tan and has a FM sticker on the back. But all that depends on what time i am going to my uncles, if it is early i will just be fishing north center all day, propb with tip-ups next to the access, his house is the one right of the access

Bobb-O, let me know how you do on Island. I drive by this lake every single day on the way to and from work. I see the occassion boat and ice fisherman. Close to home for me and may be worth a shot if it holds nice crappie and eyes. Just post if you have any success or I may see you out there one day. I would have a black Dodge Dakota and a green Eskimo quick flip II

Just bumping this up to se if anyone is going to be out on Friday AM. Gonna be cold, but I haven't been out yet, so I gotta go. Might just do Como unless anyone else will be out in the area that wants to link up.

Later.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
