Alright now that I have your attention, I was wondering if anyone knows about the "pond" behind Trappers. I was talking with my dad on Turky day and he was talking about that it use to be an Old rearin pond. I have never seen anyone out there fishing. Anyone ever checked the depth on it? Im thinking about heading out there this winter to see if there are any pannies/toothy critters out there.

Martha is the name of the pond. I did fish it one time in the summer as someone told me the same thing. Although everyone I have talked to but the one person has no idea what I am talking about. Any way I cought nothing and saw nothing. So if there are fish in there they do not eat worms. I was fishing from shore so I do not know who deep it gets but it is very muddy. Just what I know.

Shawn- I too have heard the same thing, but I dont think its been used as a rearing pond for quite some time. My guess is that it has froze out long ago and not re-stocked. I do know that just about every year they race 4 wheelers and motorcycles on the ice there every winter. Not sure if I would want to ice fish with that going on.

I did see a couple of guys ice fishing out there 4 years ago.. never saw them again.. I took that as the hint.!

Thanks for the response, and I have thought about the Ice racers, but I get the unusual schedual that I get a few days off in the week, so they wouldnt effect me. Maybe Ill get out there one of these days and just sit on the ice and see what happens, maybe Ill have to shop around for a camera and see whats floating around down there, hopefully not a cow or some farm animals shocked.gif. Maybe the lil thing will hold some deeper water and some nice fish, who knows just trying to find that spot that isnt too overly croweded. grin.gif

Shorefisher, I live just up the street then, Im just across from Brinks, got the big silver box in the front yard, Im thinking maybe I can get Hovermn up here and maybe we can hoover on over there and check the depth. Im thinking maybe we can check it out, maybe we will have to get together sometime and hit green together and make it a weekday get together.

Dietz, your a classy guy, cool.gif thanks for the offer but maybe we will just have to meet up and check it out sometime. Im also thinking of heading out to your lil lake that you like to hit, maybe even spider. Im thinking Im going to try and stay on some of the smaller lakes around here, maybe stay with little green, Kroon, Spider, Little, and maybe try and get to Bowl again, Ive had luck on Kroon, little green and bowl, just need to find the bigger fish that are in them.

Martha, did, does hold some fish and it was used as a rearing pond. The guy that owns the farm on the hill is named Paul Nelson and is an old timer with the nickname of Farley. He is in a nursing home in Forest Lake now but he told me he used to go down and catch walleyes from shore for dinner. I haven't seen many people out there lately but about3-4? years back for a couple of weeks there were quite a few people out fishing it. Farley said there were some panfish in there and on occassion it would put out some real nice crappies.

Im sorry to hear that about the old timer, That was another thing i was starting to wonder about and was planning on hitting up the city hall to find out if there was any public land around the lake or if i was going to have to ask a local landowner about it. You dont by chance know if it gets deep at all do you? Oh heck I think im going to have to go out there and sound it now! smile.gif Ill let you guys know what I find out on this lil lake after we get another freeze with some ice. and Ill keep you in mind Dietz.

Wow, this seams as if we should get a gettogether in the chisago lakes area sometime this winter Dietz. I think this would be a blast. But I think i would prefer to hit up Martha sometime on my own just to make sure( and hide the fact if there is HUGE fish in there grin.gif) that noone gets bumed out smirk.gif Keep me posted and Hopefully in about oh I say 2-3 weeks we shoudl be able to get out there and sound that lil lake !

ShawnnyB, I don"t know what the depth of that lake is as Farley didn't ever mention it. I can get a few things out of him on the good days and on the bad days he just looks at me and smiles with this far away look in his eyes. I would imagine that with the advent of ice up things should be pretty much walkable by the weekend. Forest iced up 2 days ago so I figure at least 2 -3 inches by tomorrrow in most spots if not more. Any of you Chisagonians ever head sout to Green or Forest? Darn good early ice bites in the shallows. Seems to me I have seen that black Z71 around the area, Musky Toms sure rings a bell. Dietz, You on the Sout Center landing over by the golf course and High school? My brother in law has a new house and I can see the landing from his dock. Caught some nice bass and pannies off that dock this last spring.

      Very low, probably 2 feet lower than last year at ice out.
    • mbeyer
      what do they look like this spring?
    • SkunkedAgain
      I might have missed a guess, but here are the ones that I noted:   JerkinLips – March 27th, then April 7th Brianf. – March 28th Bobberwatcher – April…. MikeG3Boat – April 10th SkunkedAgain – early April, then April 21st   Definitely a tough year for guesses, as it seemed to be a no-brainer early ice out. Then it got cold and snowed again.
    • mbeyer
      MN DNR posted April 13 as Ice out date for Vermilion

      👍. What was the water temp in Black Bay? Thanks....
    • Brianf.
      No, that wasn't me.  I drive a 621 Ranger. 
    • CigarGuy
      So, that was you in the camo lund? I'm bummed, I have to head back to the cities tomorrow for a few days, then back up for at least a few weeks. Got the dock in and fired up to get out chasing some crappies till opener!

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!  
    • Brianf.
      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.
