Pine River: Gone but not forgotten.

Recommended Posts

Anybody besides me and Serenity Jack notice Pine River Forum is gone? It was only one post from 100 too.

mm

The Remer forum isn't looking real healthy either!

If you periodically follow the discussion in the Brainerd forum, you'll see that, at times, there's a good bit of talk surrounding the Whitefish area. Heck, long as they keep me around, you can bet there'll be talk of the area-- Whitefish and the Pine River system remains probably my all-time favorite chain of lakes.

Hey Toad,
I will be fishing Lake Hattie for the opener do you know the lake? Any info on bait fish types or what the forage base is? Thanks

Howdy Pherris,

Been on Haittie several times. Good lake. All these lakes on the upper Pine River chain-- Bowen, Brockway, Lind, Hattie-- hold excellent naturally reproduced walleye populations. Hattie contains both ciscoes and perch, though perch figure most prominently into the diets of most of these walleyes, particularly in spring. Don't know whether you've fished the lake before, but a key spot, obviously, remains the Pine River inlet in the NW corner of the NW bay.

Cool thing, too, about the area, is that if you encounter tough fishing on one lake, you can always go hit the next one up or down the chain (although unfortunately not by boat). Brockway, for instance, though only about 20 feet deep, has some nice fish in it, as does Bowen. Spend some time at night with a spotlight up in the shallows near the river inlet. That'll give you an idea, at that point, in which stage of the spawn walleyes find themselves. You might not believe the sizes of some of the 'eyes you'll see at night. Keep in touch!

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
