MADISON LAKE, MINN. — The Walleye and Northern season comes to an end on February 22, so the next few weeks will be busy on the lakes.
Your fishing license will soon expire and needs to be renewed March 1st, but you can come in and get your 2015 license on February 18th.
This Sunday, February 8th is the German-Jefferson Sportsmens Club ice fishing contest at West Jefferson. This is a great event to take the kids because the entry fee is only $1.00. Fish holes will be drilled and I will be providing free minnows. (See flyer below).
We are offering weekday icehouse rentals for only $35 per day if you provide your own auger and heat. When the wind picks up, these houses will give you the shelter you need to make your day on the lake enjoyable. Call Whites at 507-243-4464 to make a reservation.
Duck Lake – Good reports on Crappie hitting on Crappie minnows and good sunfish action as well, but size has been an issue. This is a great lake to bring the kids because the fish are usually biting.
Madison Lake – The crappies and sunfish have been biting on east bay with reports of nice walleye being caught on the North Shore. Crappie minnows and wax worms have been the bait of choice.
Lake Francis – The Crappies and Sunfish have been biting on the east end of the lake. Good Walleye reports off carpenters point. Crappie minnows and wax worms are working well.
Lake Ballantyne – If you are looking for some alone time, this lake is rather quiet yet you can catch some nice fish without all the commotion. This is a good place to catch Northern using suckers.
Enjoy your time on the lakes. Be safe and stop on in to White’s Corner Bait in Madison Lake for a complete fishing report and all of your fishing needs.
White’s Corner Bait is located at 500 Walnut Avenue, Madison Lake, Minnesota and is the area’s premiere spot for fishing reports, bait and tackle.
