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!

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
