Ice Report Lake Minnewaska 12/12/16

Ice Report for Lake Minnewaska 12/12/16 - Minnewaska is fully covered with ice, currently I have heard any where

from 4-7 inches out on the lake. We also received 4-6 inches of fresh snow over the week-end, that is on top of

the ice now. There are people out on 4-wheelers as well as sleds on some of the area lakes. Fishing was really slow over

the week-end, and into this morning. Reports coming in have not been great. Possibly the cold front that is over us, could

be causing the fish to have lock jaw? We are stocked up and ready to go, for ice fishing. We have our famous XXL Shiners

in, along with small and large shiners. Our minnows are ready to catch fish, so stop in, grab your bait, fill your

propane tank, get your snacks, and you will be ready for the lake.

Ice Update Lake Minnewaska 12/7/2016

Lake Minnewaska is not froze over yet. Parts of the lake have ice, some are still open. No reports as to how thick it is. The

bay on Reno on the west side is froze over, but I am unsure if the south or east side has froze yet. Alot of the smaller

lakes are ice covered, but it was just in the last day or two that they have closed up with Ice. I heard Grove Lake, Emily,

Pelican Lake, have ice on them. Again, no measurements as to how much at this point. We are stocked for the ice

season, all our bait is in, and our tackle is ready to be sold! Please be careful if you venture out this week-end.

Lake Minnewaska Fishing Report 10/25

10/25 MInnewaska fishing report.

I'm convinced if you can brave some of the weather during the fall, it truly is the best time to go fishing.

Lake Minnwaksa has been very good. Either head towards the Starbuck side or out by Priest Point. A jig tipped with

a fathead or shiner and you are set. Head to 15-10 feet of water, on Priest Point, on the Starbuck

side, you can go right out in front of the beech. We are gearing up for the upcoming ice season here,

taking down the summer items, and getting up the winter. Our ION X augers will be here in a week,

stop in and take a look at them. Have fun and good luck fishing.

Fishing Report Lake Minnewaska 8/17/2016

8/17/2016 - Fishing report on Lake Minnewaska and Lake Reno -

Lake Minnewaska is producing nice sunfish on the weed lines, as well as above the weeds. If you find weeds in 12 feet of water, drop your jig's down to about a foot

above the weeds, the sunfish will be plentiful. Great time to get the kids out with slip bobbers and catch some fish. The walleye bite has been pretty decent too. Lots of people

pulling cranks and some also doing lead core. Don't be afraid to use the good old stand by Lindy Rig with a spinner and crawler. The night bite continues to be good as well for walleye's.

 

Lake Reno has slowed down a little for the walleye action, but it has been hit pretty hard this year with a lot of fisherman. You can still pick up a few, but you need to be patient and look

for them. Try the humps out in the middle of the lake towards the west end. Spinner rigs and crawlers or try puling some cranks over them. The sunfish are in the weeds, you will be able to catch some

nice size ones there as well. 9' - 10' are very common. 

We also have Red tails and Creek Chubs in as well. Good Luck Fishing.

big permant houses. This week-end on Lake Minnewaska is a family ice fishing tournament, this should draw a good crowd of people to the lake. If you are looking for walleye's this week-end don't

be afraid to try a little deeper, 20-25 feet of water.Good spots to check out is the 'Hole' out by the High School bar, 'Bottle Bay', or 'The Meat Hole', if you are wondering where these spots are on

the lake, stop in and we can show you on a map. Sunfish and Crappies can be found out in front of the DNR landing, follow the bar out. You will be able to see the string of houses sitting on the bar. Shiners

and Fatheads are good choices for walleye's and crappie minnows or wax worms for your pan fish. We have 3 sizes of shiners in again this year, if you are looking to put out some tip-up's, you will want to

check out our XXL Shiners. Good Luck and have a fun week-end.

Ice Fishing report for Lake Minnewaska January 11, 2016 -

Fishing has been good out on Minnwaska, 4 wheelers and snowmobiles are going out all over the lakes. As well as smaller

trucks. If you are looking for walleye's, head over to Peter Resort, if you go out in front of there, you will have good luck. Don't be

aftraid to try 15-20 feet of water, seems like the walleye's have moved out a little deeper now. The lake remains, very clear so if you like

to spear, it's a good time to do that as well. Over by the DNR landing they are catching nice panfish. You will see all the houses out

in what we call 'crappie town'. Koep's is open till 8:00 and we have our 3 sizes of shiners again this year. Our XXL ones are great for
