Anyone see the plane on the ice fishing?

18 inch Crappie

Hit Red on my way back from LOW on Tuesday, Saw a plane land on the lake, pull out a ice house, drill holes and fish for the afternoon. I went out through WW set up by 9am done by 9:30am. Never have I seen a bite like this. I have heard other people talk about it, but this day was my lucky day. I did not want to go home early so went in for lunch and fished the rest of the day for fun. Saw guys cleaning 20, 30 and one group had 60 crappies, that is a lot of cleaning.

I was fishing on Bald Eagle Lake and a bunch @$$holes flew around and on the lake, I know thats a strong word but they were flying illeagaly low mad.gif, and landed so close to the shanty towns that I expected to hear a unusually close auger, then look outside and find out it wasn't a auger engine i was hearing, but it was getting closer! shocked.gif

also the last one to take off went up at somewhere around a 60-80 degree angle! I'm not making this up!!! When we left (this is the best part) we drove by White Bear Lake and there was a bar on the waterfront, all of the planes were parked infront of it!!! "Ok sir I'm going to have to ask you to fly in a straight line, ok now touch your right Wheel to the ice... ok now the left, right, left, right, right, gotcha! You have the right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of law..." lol! Seriously though, what a bunch of (Contact US Regarding This Word)!!! Imagine what a drunk driver could do going a couple hundred miles an hour!!! I'm not trying to be a jerk but it could turn out like a mini 9/11!

Hopefully everyone was drinking cokes. The rules that apply to small planes don't even allow passengers to be on board after having a drink.

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      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 for channels. 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
