Hello everyone. I'm looking for info on any of the lakes around Chisago and Lindstom. We built a new house up here last year and I have only got to go a few times back in the summer.
Frankies Bait has been helpful and I caught a couple eyes and some other fish where he sent me.
If anyone wants to drop me some info on what lake they think is best or if there are certain times for certain fish on certain lakes. Hard or soft water, I like them both. Eyes and crappies are what I look for most but I would never pass up big sunnies.
Went out on Chisago Lake this evening and did pretty good. We caught 6 crappies and 10+ sunnies. good day in my book. The crappies could use an inch or two but in twenty feet I was surprised at the size of the sunnies. It was fun.
I was reading dew2's post under the topic FindMeFish.
"I have to say, since I been on outdoor forums,I started out sharing spots,I watched them explode with people who read where they are biting.I quit doing that and most on all outdoor forums also quit.Who really wants to put their best spots on the net? only to see them overrun with hoards of people who dont find their own places to fish,But wait for some newbee like myself to lead them to MY spot! Then the lazy slobs take it over and most take what they want leaving little for others.Then move on searching the net for their next score,doing no fishing till the spot is posted."
We members can trade advice with the pm tab. Not all info has to be a certain spot. If one likes to fish they can figure it out in due time.
Some people like me don't have the time to waste. I have three kids and one due in July. For me to spend days on the lake is selfish. If you are able to your lucky or have a wife that loves fishing more than mine. Let me just say that my wife bought me a nice boat for my wedding gift.
I feel like the thought of what dew2 posted is exactly what brings good sites like these down a little. People like me can't get a "hey the crappies are bigger on Green than Chisago", even when I think there are probably 2 dozen members that might know this.
Just my thoughts on the day. Not trying to offend anyone.
Try to find a book published in the 1980's from a gal named Sybil Smith. It was called the Twin Cities Fishing Guide. She sat down with fishing experts from that area and mapped out spots and techniques.
In that area Frankie and Brad Dusenka are great providors of fish info. Frankie and Brad used to be members of the Chisago Bassmasters, and their word is as good as gold. Tell them "hi" from me. (Ron Green) when you see them!!
