Any advice on Star?

5 posts in this topic

I'm heading to Star this weekend, going to be in the west arm for a bit, that's where we're staying. Want to pre-fish this weekend to get used to the lake as I'm staying for a week on the main part of the lake in mid-August. Any pointers on spots to hit or presentation. Mostly looking for some eyes or bass I guess.

no clue on the eyes, but i fished for bass this last weekend..I mainly fished the west arm but did not have great success..the wild rice is horrible to try and get anything thru it..I have heard that the fish do move in there late summer..I caught a couple on a weedless worm..my best luck came on an x-rap working it from just outside the weedline..or working it just paralell with the weeds also..I have heard the south arm can be better..also some guys fished deeper humps with a jig and pig and did quite well.

thanks for the tip on the bass, I'll see what happens this weekend. Yeah, my uncle said there's a couple sunken islands toward mid lake that might produce an eye, I'll try a few things, maybe a lindy, cranks or just jiggin' out there for a bit and see how it goes.

Was there a few weeks back for ½ a day. Used lindy rig and leech. Try the mid lake humps and the island towards the east. Can be hit or miss. Seemed to pick more small northerns that day. Walleyes were biting lite. Let us know how you do.

Well, we did ok but not great. Could not find any walleyes, slow in that category from everybody I spoke with out there. Did catch about a dozen northerns during the day and then found some nice sunnies out by midlake island that were suspended in 20ft and also got a few nice bass in the same spot, fun to catch.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
