Whiskers or anyone familier with the Mentor or Maple Lake area. My dad just purchased a chunk of land near Maple it is on a Large pond with two houses on it. He has put a camper on it. He has caught some perch on it just wandering if these ponds are known for good panfish or crappies or if many people fish these ponds. Thanks in advance for your help.

Depending on which pond it is, Some of them are very awesome for Ice fishing. as long at the general public does not get their hands on them.. some just can not fish for fun, they keep too many and then they are all gone.

Can you give some more detailed info on where the pond is at? If you look at a satellite map, there are lots of ponds around the area and most are private. I'm on about a 80 acre lake and there are I believe 4 of us owners of the shoreline, lived there for 7 years, minnow trapper that comes thru asked if I've ever caught fish out there, I said I've never fished it, he said he doesn't catch many minnows and figured something must be eating them. So for the 1st time this year I went out and checked it out and I'll be darned if there isn't something out there, I think it was bullheads but some of the fish that were jumping looked like bass to me. I didn't catch anything, I was just out for a evening troll.

Some are good for walleye, some for perch and some for crappie, just depends on which one your on.

I will talk to my dad today and find out exactly where it is at. My dad did say a minnow man traps on this pond to, but they trap many ponds in that area. I will let you know.

I talked to my dad and this is where it is at. The Junction of 12 and 41. 3/4miles east and a 1/4 mile North. It has 1 abandon house on it and a house owned by Richard Lunak. Please let me know if anyone has any info on this Pond. Thanks

Growing up near there, we used to drive out to some of those lakes/ponds around Maple and Union and plop a small boat in. It's been several years since then, so I can't tell you exactly where those bodies of water are, but we found some pretty nice bass in some of those potholes.

Good Luck!

I am not sure what pond that is but as for stocking, you would have to contact the DNR and aske about that. Not sure how they regulate that stuff. The could tell you if it has been stocked or what it has been used for.

Dock Boy, I spoke with a friend this morning who lives a short distance from the lake you mentioned. He said he did not know if there were any fish in it. He has lived in the area for many years. Hope you enjoy the new area.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
