Farm Island Lake

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I rarely get up in your neck of the woods outside Mille Lacs, but this weekend I will be at a friend's place on Farm Island. I have heard that there are Lakers in there, is that true? My buddy swears he will see some die off each year and wash up on shore.

Also, who might know of some decent areas to scout to find some gators and walleyes? thanks for the help.

Farm Island off of 169 definetly does NOT have any lakers in it. the mine pits would be a place to find some though. As far as farm island, think you will find plenty of pike just about anywhere (all 22" long fish i might add, feel free to keep your limit, there are plenty!!). As far as walleyes, would be looking at deep weed edges or out deep in the main basin. Good luck...

I banged up the bass out there today. Try those rocky points on the little islands. The bass were just crawling all over in there! Creature baits and senkos were good, but feeling bites was tough with all the wind.

      How big are the hooks you're using, wookie?   Make sure they're big enough, especially if you're using big minnows.    I also use heavier line than most people (10 lb flouro) on our rattle reels so I can set the hook with a bit of gusto without worrying about breaking off.  I might get a few less bites than my friends using 4 lb or 6 lb test, but in the long run I bet we both get the same number of fish on the ice.

      I have read that mercury levels are a reason there is no commercial harvest on vermilion. But it was probably the same thing you read as I have not found a second source of that. There is commercial harvest of rustys on other Minnesota lakes so there must be a reason it's not done here.    For or what it's worth, the DNR has suggestions on how much fish to eat because of mercury.
