Star Lake

7 posts in this topic

I am going to be heading to Star Lake in Otter Tail in a couple of weeks. This is my first trip to Star Lake. Any tips or fishing reports? Thanks in advance.

My dad would kill me if I put anything about Star on the net. But if you put in your time you will be rewarded. Just remember the sunfish limit is only 10. They watch it close.

I'll be at Star Lake on the 16th of June for a week, if that's when you're going to be there. If you need some pointers look me up! I'll be at the Galaxy in cabin #8. My Dad, always said "There is enough fish up here for everyone, so help them have a good time too!" He was right! Been fishing Star and the area lakes for 48 years! I'm 55 years old now and the area is still the best! You'll have fun and meet a lot of nice people who will help you!

A good friend of mine just returned from Dead Lake. Real bad weather last week. He watched 4 tornadoes from his cabin deck, and a big one towards Lida! Big Caps on the lakes. Looks like it is calming down now towards the end of this week. Said the water temp was 65 degrees. Crappie were out about 28 to 30 feet deep. Haven't moved shallow yet. Bass were Great, and they did good on the Eyes! Whatch out when the water temp hit 68! You'll have a ball! 3rd & 4th week are the Best!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
