Recommended Posts

Preferably an Online map and newer and clearer than the DNR version. Also Whats the best way to access Eagles Nest on Lake Chisago.

Thanks

Not sure about a good lake map...I'd be interested in one myself. I like the Lake Master maps...I think that's what they're called...but I don't think they have one for Chisago...but hopefully I'm mistaken.

As far as accessing the lake...you can either drive out from the channel from the main launch just head right out of the channel and go down the east shoreline...or you can drive out from Lake street...which you can get to by taking a right (if you're headed east on Hwy 8) at the intersection in Chisago and going down a couple blocks and taking a left onto Lake street...Lake street runs right into the lake. Just follow the road that Frankies plows out to the eagles nest...be sure to go east around the pressure ridge that's out there. Last weekend the Lake street access was not in too bad a shape for a truck...I'd advise using the channel access if you have a car...the lake street access gets pretty rutty and the hill can be pretty icy at times making it tough to get up in only two wheel drive.

Edit - I stand corrected...I was just on the Lakemaster site and they do have a map of some of the Chisago lakes. I ordered one up so I'll let you know how it compares to the DNR maps. I picked up the Forest Lake map they put out and was impressed...and found it to be more accurate than other maps I had seen of Forest Lake. Hopefully the same stands true for the Chisago lakes.

First off... Welcome to FishingMinnesota and IceLeaders.. Great to have you with us.

As far as an online map goes.. I dont know of any. If I were you I would stop in at Frankies and get one. They can also give you directions to get on the lake.. The Eagles nest point is near the south end of the lake.

The Chisago area lakes are on the Lakemaster chip and I was just looking at Chisago last night decided if I should go there or South Center on Saturday. I assume there must be paper versions that are fairly detailed either lakemaster or fishing hot spots.

There is a fairly good paper map available that has a number of lakes on it. Including Rush, Chisago/Linstrom, North and South Center and Green. I think there are a few more, but I don't remember all of them. I picked it up at that little bait/grocery store on the south end of Rush Lake. I think it is the same company that puts out all those waterproof plastic maps.

Check out Sportsman's Connection. They have an online map. I think it's a few bucks. I have their books and a few online maps. I also have some lakemaster maps, those are nice too. I'm pretty sure they make a Chisago lake one.

eagles nest is pretty easy to find. if you head south past the high school, you can take a right just past the park road on the left. once you amke your turn head down and the road curves to the left. fallow curve and head straight past housing devlp on your left. head straight and road tuens to dirt. at the end of that road you can drive out.when you drive out turn rt and you will see an island straight ahead. drive around the rt side and there you are!

the lakemaster map is probably the best.. but still quite disapointing. I would call Chisago my home lake. And I will say this.. they missed quite a few sunken islands on the lake.

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On!

      Well monstermoose78 is done ice fishing around here for the year. Why you ask I fell through yes there was 28-30 inches of ice on the lake, but the shoreline nope. Went fishing with @Cret Jigs and we had fun fishing. I cut lots of holes and we got some good ones for the knife. Cret jigs brought a plank for the way out but on the way in I did not make it to the plank. Cret jigs helped me get my stuff the shore and out. I worry about the guy on the wheeler and they guy who used the plank to get out too. Thanks Cret jigs for a fun day.

      To all you guys who’ve been keeping us posted, thank you. I’m an islander so I don’t have much hope for the opener, but I’ve been reading all the posts (read them year around), including entertaining posts on new gear, and, again, thanks for letting a lot of guys know what’s going on there. The current weather, forecast and web cams, give me hope! I’m thinking I may get back home in three weeks, maybe four. Keep the sun shining, Dick

      What a difference a day makes, yesterday the dam was locked up tight and today it's roaring. Walleye should be running this week...

      Well this morning was officially the end of the ice season for me.   Its been a lot of days on the ice this winter and I have to admit I'm  a little burnt out.   It wasn't easy but it was time to end it.  Have to admit It was a sad moment putting the gear away but it was time as needed space today to put the boat in the garage   Learned a lot of new water and reacquainted myself with some old standbys. Fished 10 different counties this winter so definitely fished a lot of different areas.  Fished many species on the ice this winter so there never was a dull moment. Didn't take a ton of pics just a few need to take more just have never been a pic type of guy LOL.   Iced 7 walleyes between 26-28 3/4 all on local lakes.  So just a tip if you dedicate some time locally big eyes can be found. Fished panfish everywhere in the state highlight area for big fish being Becker and Ottertail Douglas counties. Biggest gill this winter was 10 3/4    many 10's came topside but couldn't break 11 this winter. Craps 15 inchers were tops. Good fish but had goals set at a 16.  Some things learned this ice season where number one lure for the eyes was a old school hammered silver Swedish pimple. It far out produced anything else.   Kenders tungsten where my mainstay for gills and crappies. The plastics of choice were power bait wishbones,  chigger frys, and Northland impulse mayfly's.  The catfish were a hoot and a  change of pace did well on Maynards slammers Glow red. The equipment and gear I was running and never failed me all season were Thorne Bros Rods- For eyes Perch sweethearts. For the Panfish I was running  Power Noodles, panfish sweethearts,  and my favorite the Tripwire. Reels Pflueger Presidents, Prestige ,and Supremes.. Did use some inlines also from 13 fishing The free falls where worth every penny. Ran a K-Drill 8 inch early and late and During the thick ice Ran my strikemaste Lazer.  Vexilar Electronics the old trusty FL18 my eyes underwater, Please Don't  think that I'm pushing these products because I'm sponsored by them, I'm Not. Just want to give a thumbs up and honest opinion on  some top notch equipment that has worked and weathered the storm of a good hardwater season. Realize we all work hard for our dollars and I can honestly say these products where worth every penny and never let me down!  Well Off to the Garage to start getting the boat ready for the Next season  By the Way big Shout out to some of the best Anglers I had the chance to share the ice with this season from FM.  Thanks  Borch,  Bass Thumb,  Moose,  Eyeguy, Rick G , Tom Sawyer for shareing some ice time with me.  Hopefully I get to meet and fish with a few other FMer's this summer or next hardwater.  We had some great Times great laughs and managed to even ice a few fish   Looking forward to having a few summer outings in the future.  BYE BYE Ice Hello open water

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!
