fishing partner - blaine area


Recommended Posts

I would prefer not to fish alone after dark (just in case...) I have the essentials (no sled or 4-wheeler yet).

I fish for crappie and other pannies and walleye if I can find them. I fish the afternoon / early evening until an hour or two after sunset or until I can't stand the cold. Lakes I target are within 30 mins of blaine (often closer). I live near 99th and central.

I am new to the site and would like the opportunity of fishing with someone that knows more about ice fishing than I. Which isn't hard. What days would you like to go?

I just wrote about not wanting to drive a country mile for fish, but I am more than willing to make that sacrifice for learning a thing or two.

Hey, I'm just off 113th in Blaine, and would love to get out fishing with you. I'm home from work by 2:30 pm weekdays. Weekends I'm usually on a more serious fishing trip somewhere distant. Lost my license, so you'd have to drive though. I have good productive locations on various area lakes, and enough gear for many anglers. Get back to me. ~hogsucker

da-biggin - shoot me an email. Where do you live roughly (major highways) maybe we can target a lake somewhere between us for some panfish action.

I learn something new everyday...

bob send me an email... there are few others that have responded. We should all exchange schedules and fishing preferences.

No one should have to fish alone - unless the spot is real good and you aren't quite ready to share the experience...

One of the best ways to hook up with new people would be to come to the get togethers. I have met a ton of people at these and always had a good time.

will do that too when the meeting is at a lake nearby - I've had 4 responses so far. Not enough time in the week for all the fishing that I would like to do. Do you think anyone would notice if I sent my wife to work in my place so I could fish?

Slicerboy,

I live in Andover and honestly most of my fishing has been done locally at the get-togethers or last year at some of the events. I'm headed for the Tonka gathering tomorrow after asking another guy I met on here if he was fishing up in our neck of the woods on a lake I'd like to get to know better. He's probably not so I'm off to Tonka.

Sunday I'm headed for Medicine as there is a Panfish tournament on it and although I'm not fishing in it, this is also another get-together and I enjoy them. Not having a sled or ATV is limiting, but Medicine is walkable from shore to a few decent spots.

I'm headed for the Backwaters Brawl next Saturday but one of these days I'll get out on Linwood up north and maybe Coon or Crooked just to say I've fished em. Keep watching and maybe we can hook up for a day of fishing---last year I was in your same situation, newbie with no experience locally. At least now I've been on a few lakes and have a few spots to start at.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.
    • delcecchi
      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
