Sioux Narrows Area Question.

2 posts in this topic

Well gentlemen, ice fishing season is finally upon us. I had a quick question reguarding the Sioux Narrows area for winter time crappie fishing.

I am looking to get away from the pressure that Sabaskong Bay recieves and I enjoy the "search" more than I do the catching of winter crappies. I know there are crappies up in the Sioux Narrows area and was just basically wondering if there are any areas that I would need to stay away from. Obviously current looks to be an issue up in that area. Is there normally any traffic on the ice that would designate a relatively safe navigation route.

Again, not looking for any spots from anyone, but would like to know what I can expect of the ice conditions.

Thanks Ladies/Gents! Hope to see you on the hard water soon!!!!

Tearin' Lips,

I live in Kenora (about 40 miles away) and fish that area alot in the winter. I am mostly after lake trout, however.

As far as traffic goes, most of it is on the big part of Whitefish Bay. That is not where the crappies are. (that I know of)

The areas you are going to find the crappies are some back areas in Snake Bay and also Knickerbocker. I have fished for them in open water in those areas, but never ice.

You are best to get a map (I sell them, as do many other retailers in Kenora/SN) and have someone put some pencil marks on bad ice/crappie potential.

Good luck and feel free to hunt me down if you have any more questions.

    • 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.
