Pine Lake

4 posts in this topic

How is the overall fishing on Pine/Big Pine lakes near Finlayson? I've fished from shore a few times at the pine lake access (mostly below the dam and along the river) and caught lot's of bass, pike, crappie, sunnies, and rock bass. I'm just curious if it'd be worth taking my boat up there and fishing for bass/pike. From what I can see from the launch the lake looks like it has some prime shoreline.

I've fished up there a handful of times.

decent lakes biggest bass maybe 4 lbs. I had

some fish on that I couldn't move so it makes me

want to go back. Of course they broke my line you know

how fish stories are.

It's a great lake for bass with abundant shoreline structure. Deeper humps in the north lake are worth a try. There are BIG pike in Pine Lake with an abundance of hammer handles as well. If you like fishing slop there is no shortage of it on either lake. I've seen a lot of 4-5 pound Bass over the years and we've had a cabin there since '78. Crappies are biting now on green or white jigs within 5 feet of the outer weed edge in case thats your thing. Enjoy! Doc.

I honestly probably won't make it there this year, but it was on my mind and I thought I'd ask around about it. I'm contemplating going there next spring. So far it sounds like it could be a good plan.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
