I am new to ice fishing this year. Anyone ever ice fish Lake Calhoun? I know the City doeant allow gasoline boat motors there in the summer. Are there any restrictions against gasoline augers or ice fishing in general on Calhoun?

I heard that gas augers are allowed, haven't done it myself. Also have heard big fish are in Calhoun but again I haven't fished it, will be trying this winter at some point

Gas augers are allowed per city rules. It has some large fish in there including stocked muskies. I've gotten some dandy walleyes out of the lake in the 15-20 foot range. Watch out for thin ice near the canal by lake street.

Calhoun is deep, so it seems to freeze slowly, especially at the north end. Check the ice often if you go out this weekend.

And post a report when you get back!

Very deep and slow to freeze. Harriet's the same. Usually several inches behind all other local lakes. Try to find weeds. Fish of deep edge of weedlines or in cuts in weedline .look at map not hard to find. I prefer Harriet. Lots of places to fish close to shore. SE corner is a good spot to start.

As others have said gas augers are OK. I have tried calhoun a few times but also prefer harriet as there is usually easier parking and walking on than on calhoun. both offer decent fishing for in the city and there is a ton of structure to explore.

As others have said both lakes are usually well behind others on safe ice so check the ice and be careful. Give us an ice report if you get out there!

I was out on Harriet yesterday, plenty of ice(about 6 inches) and plenty of aggressive fish to be found. My guess is that there will be good ice on Calhoun too--especially after this cold snap. Don't sleep on Eagle.

Fished Isles yesterday and got into the usual peewee crappies. What's biting on Harriet?
