Fish....Welcome to FishingMinnesota.com! Hey, I have to ask. This Frontenac pond, is it really that good? I have been by there a million times, seen a million shacks out there, and have never even stopped to see what was happening.

Again, welcome aboard!

Thanks crappie tom i sure am glad i found this web site. The pond is pretty decent on first ice but once you get all them shacks out there things slow down quickly. The contest they have is pretty fun. The main thing i catch is northerns there is some sunnies but not really any size.

I fish the Frontenac Pond a few times each year. "fish or die" is right... pretty good northern fishing with tip-ups, and you'll even get a stray largemouth bass once in a while. But the panfish are small, although I did catch a big crappie on a small shiner one day.

The Frontenac Sportsman's Club ice fishing contest is Saturday, Feb. 12th. You won't want to miss it, it is a great time with TONS of prizes!

J.P.

Can you gain access to Frontenac by going around behind the gas station? Or how does a guy get out on the ice with a vehicle?

Dan,

Take co. rd 2 through frontnac and you will see the pond and where they drive on. I guess there still doing really well out there I heard some 15" crappies I didnt even know there was crappies in there maybe the guy got really lucky. I also heard this summer the dnr shocked the pond and they figure the state record bass is swimming in the pond that's gotta be pretty big. Good Luck fishin.

sorry about the late report. The ice was about 12 inches. I did drive on the lake with no problems. I did catch two nice northerns and missed two. One real nice one broke my tip up line. I also caught some little sunnies to keep me occupied in between the tip up. Fished tuesday from 11 til 230.

Thanks for your report jiggin pig!

Not a bad ratio either got two and missed two all in 3 1/2 hours. Way to go. I wonder what it was that broke your line? Oh well-he's still out there somewhere.

fish or die, winterse, and jiggin pig-

Would you guys mind letting us in on a few of your secrets? Northern fishing with tip ups, or on rod and reel? What area is generaly the most productive? I sure would like to come over and give it a shot sometime.

Thanks guys!

sorry for the late response, it has been a busy week with work and all. I will be at frontnac pond on sunday 01/09/05 at about 10am till when ever. as for tips. For the northern's i have been using a tip up with black braided line with a red hook and sinker. I put it about 4 feet down. I will say i do change the depth every once and a while if there is no action. I normally go to the north east side or the side that is closest to the river. I normally fish about 15 - 20 yards from shore. it works for me. I have been using shinners and suckers for bait. med-large. hope this works. but don't tell anyone this its a secret!!!

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
