tulibee in MN

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any info on catching tulibee through the ice in MN? It really sounds fun and I would like to give it a try. What time of the year is best? Early ice mid winter, etc. What do you use for bait/lures?
What lakes and how deep?

Thank you,

Mille Lacs and Cass are both good choices. Small jigging spoons tipped with maggots seem to work prety good. Look for these fish to come through suspended on the flasher, and they will chase the bait up and down. I've had good luck during mid-winter for tulibee, always seem to find them on classic walleye spots. Large flats with any abrupt changes always draw in fish.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

If anyone has any information on how to or fishes for tulibees I would be interested in trading trips. I would offer some NE South Dakota perch and crappie fishing for some helpful info on spots to catch a few tulibee.

thank you

MilleLacs lake can be hot. Last year i did manage to lasoo (sp) one out on the mud, we had the camera down watching them swim around our jigs like shark in a tank, they would come in smoking and just stare at the bait. We had a blast watching them then all of a sudden i felt a pull, i was in awe cuz i could see my jig with nothing on it. I pulled it in and it was a tulibee that wrapped the line around its tail, a pretty good fight too.

aquafang,
I'd be willing to show you a few spots on Mille Lacs when you head this way. Search lures with a small Ratso always seals the deal. I've also caught quite a few on small jigging spoons packed with maggots. Sometimes you'll get them to hit the bait hard no matter the size of lure, but a good majority of the time you have to downsize and make them chase it for a while before they strike. You can get them to chase it 10-15 feet up and they won't hit, but if you drop it below them once they rise and twitch it very fast they will often times dart down and grab it on the fall.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
