Taking some kids fishing

Recommended Posts

Just looking for some help, taking som kids fishing Saturday to Big Carnelian and would like some advice as where is a good place to start for tip ups, bringing my 9 and 8 and 3 year old out and thought this would be a great lake for some action at least for them and want this first time experience to turn them onto fishing and the outdoors

Big Marine isn't too far away from there, you should go there instead. ALOT more northerns...bigger ones too! And if you want to keep the kids busy there's lot's of sunnies and perch too

If you just head north on manning ave you'll hit mayberry trail, take a right (east) and that'll take you right to the access on the north end of the lake. There's a couple points in the north arm, stay in 12 to 17 ft. Rainbow chubs or shiners under a tip up should get you a couple pike. There's some real nice sunfish in this lake too.

And if the pike are fickle. . . the bass always raise a flag! smile.gif Last time out LM outnumbered pike 2:1. Great action and better than average size.

Took the kids out to the bay on the northeast side, wind was horrendous, but kids had a lot of fun, 8 tip ups and 6 flags, biggest northern was 18 inches but they had a blast and cant wait to go again thanks for any information given.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
