Schmidt Lake

Recommended Posts

Just curious, has anyone fished this lake just outside of Buffalo close to Beebe Lake? It's shore comes right up to Hwy 34 where there is a launch ramp with no trespassing signs on it. It is chock full of dead fall and I was wondering how the bass fishing was there.

Toxic topic - do some searches in this forum for a lot more info. But long story short - That isn't an acknowledged official access, and if the water's edge isn't within the public highway easement (like now), you would be tresspassing to launch there.

What a shame it looks so inviting there. Is the owner just being anal about the access or has there been trouble with less than courteous boat owners, ie, garbage etc?

From what I hear the owner pays to have it stocked and my guess is he doesn't like to share.

Can someone private own a lake that big? The shores touch both Hwy 34 and Hwy 35. If you can get on it I think you could fish it. I was thinking of a fishing tube or something like that. I have seen a small twelve foot boat on it some mornings when I go to work. He launches it on the southeast corner of the lake. He leaves the trailer right in the water still attached to his car.

How far back should I go? I checked back to the beginning of this year and found nothing. Maybe I am searching wrong. I simply type Schmidt Lake in the search box, but nothing comes up.

Only type in schmidt, and you will get info going back to 2005. Enjoy the reading.

I've had many questions about this lake as well. Anyone care to clarify EXACTLY what the public highway easement is in MN? I keep getting different stories and I certainly would love to give this lake a shot, but it seems like too much trouble is too emminent. Is there anyone out there worth talking to who may grant access? I won't bug the post about this subject anymore, just for the record. Thanks guys.

50' from the center of the road, which unfortunately is much farther now with the low water. If the water comes back up, the fence has to come down. smile.gif

My family lives on the lake. We are on the farm on the north east side. Most of the lake is owned by the Schmits, they have put the fence up to keep trafic off the lake and litter. Wouldnt be my first choice but it is theres.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
