Fish in Mt.Normandale Lake

hansyfishing02

2,333 views

Hey guys,

Just fished at Mt.Normandale Lake today and caught a few Northern and fat pre-spawn bass that were only about 2-3 pounds. I have been doing research on this lake and it was apparently popular at around 2008 and read that people have caught TROPHY bass there (6lbs+) and very large pike (35'+). I have seen a few large bass and pike there and there but I do not see or catch what they caught in 2008. I also noticed that there were people that fished the lake much more in 2010. I rarely EVER see people fish there now. Is the lake over fished? Are there still trophies in there? Any comments would help.

Thank you!

It is the number to call to report fishing violations in mn. Unless there is a special rule, fishing for bass and northern is closed for part of the year, incurring now until later in May.  You should have gotten a copy of the regulations when you bought your fishing license.

Yea season is closed you should not be fishing for bass/pike which is about all that is in that lake worth catching.  The lake is not what it used to be and can vary greatly from week to week and year to year, it is so tiny that it pretty much got outfished or nature has gotten rid of most of the big fish one way or another.

Thanks for the info. I have not fished since and have learned my lesson.
