Cody Lake Fishing?

8 posts in this topic

My brothers and parents just purchased a cabin on Cody Lake in 2006 and I was wondering to try to catch fish on the lake (Walleye, Panfish, Bass and anything but bullheads). Any help would be greatly appreciated

I havent fished in the summer for a few years now, I do ok on the ice. The last soft water trip on twin lakes, we caught some nice eyes. They are in there. Try fishing the creek channel in the lake.

I just start at one end and troll a floating lindy rig to the other end - doesn't take very long and you can find out if the walleyes are deep or shallow.

How's the green crud on the lake right now?

Although this might seem like useless fishing it has actually proven to be a little successful. Try fishing undre the bridge between cody and phelps. i would use a gold spinner. Move it pretty quick or you will end up down in 'header' (bullhead) land. A buddy of mine netted 7 largemouths in a few hours.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

      Shields and Mazaska are now ice free at the landing.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
