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,

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

    • I think he's saying for the plow operator!!!  LOL!!!  yes it would help ya until ya wake up!!!
    • Agreed that will help calm my nerves when I see a big pile of snow pushed up in my yard, but I was looking to stop it from happening.
    • I thought they were all 4-cycle.  The ones I saw so fare were.  
    • Have you changed anything from your first attempt on venison bacon
    • A pic of the creek where we hunt, my deer, son in laws deer. Blended all 3 to 1. Ended up kinda neat for us. 
    • I have used a Toro single stage for about 10 years now. I was very skeptical until I helped a friend with snow removal. I won't ever go back to a 2 stage. Mine is a 2 stroke but I've seen the 4 stroke Toros in action and they seem just as good. There have been a couple times of heavy snow fall where I had to do the driveway in the middle of a storm and again at the end and also times of breaking up the plow ridge at the end but the pros far outweigh the cons. I like that it folds up like a lawnmower. When I get the mower out in the spring the blower goes under the shelf. No more big bulky blower in the way all the time and the rubber paddles clean right down to the cement. It's light enough to throw in the pickup and if you lift on the handles it'll propel itself if the snow isn't super deep. Go for the single. You won't regret it. 
    • The best snow thrower I’ve used is the one that uses your arms and a shovel😂 No blower or plow for me I can have the driveway done in the same amount of time if not a hair faster than a blower and, we’ve got a pretty decent sized driveway to, We get a good pile at the end from the grader that plows the township roads. I have wanted to mount a plow on one of the wheelers to plow the road as our township is extremely cheap and there must be Minimum 3-4 inches to plow. Anyway single stages are better for smaller drive ways and less snow. Personally I’d never by a single stage as you get a decent snow load and it may get frustrating or that pile at the end from the plow. But being you have a 2 stage as well it shouldn’t be an issue. Finding a good heavy duty rig with a good engine is key. Toro makes a good blower as well as huqvarna IMO. Im not sure if  huqvarna evenmakes smaller blower though.
    • I wouldn't get the Honda 4-Cycle Single Stage.  We have one at work and they are gutless wonders.  We also have the Toro 2 cycle single stage and that has a lot more balls!  IMO.  😉
    • A good bottle of bourbon or case of beer might make a difference.....
    • Great feedback.  I guess I will go with the single stage.  Just wish I had a solution for keeping the plow driver from pushing our entire culdesac's snow onto my lawn.
