Default Ice fishing St. Paul

Hey guys

I am new to the area and looking to do some ice fishing in the St. Paul area this winter and looking for some great Perch. I am wondering if you can still get any decent fish out of Vincent Lake I heard it used to be great at one time but not anymore. Is this true? Where would you recommend?

Tough fishing all around there. All the old Ukrainian farmers got those lakes cleaned out or they are very secretive.

I was looking at Saddle lake on the forums here and read about having to pay for a special license or getting kicked off the lake.

Ohoho it's been a while since someone called out the frenchmen on this board


As for the OP- a lot of those lakes up there are getting hammered, but you never know things change from year to year and you may find a spot or a technique that does the job for you. You also have quite a few different lakes to choose from in your area, it may be worth your while to check out a few of the less popular ones

Put in your time, maybe invest in a underwater cam. There's good genes up there. The big loners are tough to catch but there's still opportunities in lots of lakes up that way. Nobody gonna draw you a map. Find your own spots and zip the lip and tell everyone sheez fished out like most serious perchers do in alberta. Good luck.

Hundreds of lakes within 1 hr of there. You're gonna have to explore. Keep an ear tuned in at the local coffee shop and you might hear where there bitting.
