Potato Lake Action

9 posts in this topic

We will be on Potato from the 8th to the 15th. We mainly go for panfish and eyes, but like to try our luck at Northerns. Any suggestions?

it was tough guiding for me the last two mornings, managed walleyes both days but I really had to work for them. we caught our fish on crawlers in around 17 feet.

I was at my parents since tues and did great with the panfish. Eye fishing a little slower, picked up a couple smaller northerns trolling cranks. Mixed in a really nice crappie, but just the one with lots of nice sunnies.

Can anyone tell me if you can get a 18ft Lund boat between Potato and Eagle Lake?

Thanks

Thanks, I have been told that a larger boat might have a hard time in the channel between these lakes. I am coming up on July 21st and staying on Eagle Lake and did want to trailer the boat back and forth from Potato Lake if I did not have to.

Jonah, I will be stoppong in to see you sometime that week.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
