Smallmouth are in there but they are far and few between. I’ve only caught 1 this year and it was in the deep. And was my Personal Best at 19 inches 3lbs
We used to vacation on the lake and would catch a few smallmouths but largemouth is better. Also we caught a lot of panfish. Was a great lake for the kids.
Is there a healthy population of Smallmouth in the lake? I see they are listed, but don't see any reports of anyone targeting or cathing them
Thanks for any info!
With the National campground closed along with the boat ramp, any suggestions on getting my folks pontoon launched into the lake for them any where else? So far every other launch is contradicted on other websites as private or non existent. Message me if you can, thanks for any help! Tight lines!
Taking our trip up to Pine last weekend in Feb. I was wondering if someone could let me know if you are able to drive out with a truck or if i can even use my ATVS.
Thanks for any information.
No, I only fish Pine once a year. A guy in our group has a cabin in Argonne, we just started doing this last year, what a hoot!
Wear Rubber boots, my leather top Lacrosse boots kept me warm but at the end were getting damp..
Setter, are you fishing the derby tomorrow? Really sucks about the conditions. My sled can get around in the slop but i spent all weekend last weekend in ankle deep water and not sure i want to do that again.
3 of us out last Fri. Aft. I brought my old 94 Indy snowmobile and sportsman 500 fully studded. I packed down a path with the sled and it worked well. Had quite a few flags, average Pike, alot of fun.
Sat. Am. We had 7 guys, not a flag untill around noon.! Travel was much worse anywhere we had fished earlier. Actually a swamp, tip-ups were floating. Time for an upgraded sled if this weather is the new norm!!
Good Luck out there!! SJ.
Mason, Lots of slush and snow. You will need tracks on your atv unless things have changed since last weekend.
