Lake Lizzie Roundup - Detroit Lakes/Pelican Rapids Area GTG

Recommended Posts

Jan 10th - Lake Lizzie Roundup - MAP

Hosted by: J.P. Lipton “DEADhead” roughfisher@roughfisher.com, & Peter Prodanov “Fisherdog19” pprodanov@valescomortgage.com

Come join the fun again this year chasing crappies, sunfish, walleye, bass, and northern pike on Lake Lizzie, Saturday January 10, 2009. We will meet at the public access at 0900 am.

Lake Lizzie is located 17 miles south of Detroit Lakes, and 7 miles north of Pelican Rapids. The public access is located one mile east off of US Highway 59, along the west shoreline of the lake. From US Hwy 59, take 460th St east for 1 mile. When you come to the “T” at the end of the road, the public access is located 100 feet to the right of the junction, on 220th Ave. We will wait at the access until 0930 am, and then proceed on to the ice as a group. Latecomers are welcome to meet us out on the ice.

From the MN DNR Lake information report:

Lizzie Lake is a popular angling lake during both the open water and ice fishing seasons. The lake is best known for its excellent bluegill, black crappie, largemouth bass, northern pike, and walleye fishing. Data from recent lake surveys indicate these species are abundant and have good size distributions.

Feel free to bring whatever you'd like to eat and drink; food and beverage will not be provided. There will be snowmobiles, and likely ATVs, available to give people rides on and off the ice, if ice/snow conditions do not allow for driving.

This event is open to everyone; bring your wife, children, friends and anyone else you would like. This is a great opportunity to meet and fish with other Fishing Minnesota members and a chance to meet new people and share fishing tips and stories.

Any questions regarding this event should be directed to the GTG thread on the Detroit Lakes & Pelican Rapids Area forum. Check in for more info and last minute details as the event approaches.

We hope to see you there!

After this weekend's snow, it's going to be tough going unless you have a sled. We'll try and get a better assessment on the conditions later this week. Regardless, there will be guys out their with sleds who could tow out a portable and shuttle people out on to the ice if we can't get a road opened up by next weekend.

Thanks D, We'll be up there regardless of conditions. Probably will need a tow and shuttle. We usually go out and left of the access to the deep water.

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
