Hayward area fishing

3 posts in this topic

Five friends and I will be heading up to the Hayward area later this week. It would be great to have a meal of fish while we are there. Any current tips or advice as to lakes or just patterns in general? I have only fished one lake in that area one time and don't know any of the lakes at all. Thanks in advance for any help.

Myself and Vman have been doing good on the Chippewa Flowage, me on the crappies and Vman on the walleyes.

Check back tomorrow (Thursday). I'm heading in to work this morning and several of the guys I work with will have been on LCO, Grindstone, Whitefish, and Big Round. I should have a little info on those lakes then.

Here's what I found out. LCO, Grindstone, and Whitefish have all been producing in deeper water (18 to 22) with fatheads outproducing leeches and crawlers coming in a close second. The guy I talked to guides on his days off and he figures they'll be coming up shallower by the weekend. Water temps are ranging in the mid to upper 50's and those 3 lakes.

Another lake that I heard was doing good was Sand Lake. They've relaxed the restrictions on it (back to 2 fish) and might be worth a try.

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
