Recommended Posts

I am looking for some lakes that a person could have a chance at some walleyes and northerns the weekend after opener. My buddy has a place near Big Pine, and is working his school's Relaty for Life that Friday night so Mille Lacs is out. any other lakes in the area that we should try? Thanks

You could head about 15 min north and hit Sturgeon or Island Lake. The northerns are big and hungery on Sturgeon. Check the regs 20" max if you want to keep them.

yeah, i'll say sturgeon for walleys, but there are some other ones around there that have some great northerns, and some pretty decent bass if you know where to find them.

My friends shack in the woods is about 1 mile from the landing on upper pine. Where would you suggest we start? I know it is a flowage and we have fished it a few times, would dragging the channel be best? find the steep shore breaks, I know where there are a couple humps on the south end of north pine. is it a early morning late evening bite lake or are they catchable all day long. Long snells and leeches or crawlers? Jigging?

My brother and I will either hit Mille that saturday morning or we will be on Pine that morning. I drive a late 80's grey crestliner with a 40 evin, and a 9.9 evin. on the back. Keep your eyes out for us, swing by and say hi. Thanks for the help

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
