Awesome thank you so much for the info!
Groveland Mine Ponds
The size does very on the panfish and on the Bass there are some big ones but last year I caught over 60 and the size was anywhere from 8 to 26 inches all Large mouths. And for northerns I only have caught 1 that was 24 inches. I'm told that the south pond has musky but I never fished for them and don't have any musky lures. But I have caught some good size perch 9 to 13 inches. I don't keep any under 9 hope this helps.Free fishing is june 8th and 9th. Good luck and have fun.
Thank you very much is there any size to that fish again or all they all still small?
Great place to fish and there are places to camp but no water or outdoor bathrooms or power hook ups. They are first come first serve. I fish the ponds a lot in the summer and they all are great.Good luck
Hey guys wanting to take a trip up here this summer is there camp grounds?
Thanks.. I haven't fished there for a few years and was thinking of trying it..
Some of the lakes in that area are starting to get some truck traffic. The problem with the mine ponds are they all sit in valleys between ridges and hills. Snow accumulates worse there and makes for thinner ice, more slush, and also tougher travel once the ice is safe. Good luck and be safe.
How much ice is there? Are they driving out?
If you type in Groveland ponds in your in your search bar it shows you all the ponds. Or you can call the whispering pine sport shop If you look down 1 or 2 post I gave you the number not to long ago. I fish all of them in the summer and only the south pond in the winter. Lots of stumps and down trees. If you fish the south pond go out the landing I should say what they call a landing go straight out about 150 to 200 and start there. And just drill drill and drill till you find them crappie and gills and maybe a northern.But if you go to the others side straight across from the landing you might tie into a walleye or two. Just a heads up there are springs and like I said lots of stumps. Hope this helps and good luck.
curious as to if anyone has any sort of topographic map for the ponds, if so, i am wondering if i could see them
