Two Island lake?

4 posts in this topic

I will be heading up to Two island this weekend and was hoping to get some smallmouth. Are there fish still up shallow and what has been working good lately.

We also might go to crescent lake and was wondering how the fishing is on the lake. I have never fished it before and would like to give it a try.

I am also hoping on picking blueberries. Is the blueberry season still going or is it done?

Thanks for any help.

Two Island and Crescent are almost identicle...size, clarity, structure, fishing, etc. Both lakes are excellent bass producers. This time of year you might find a few small ones along the shallows, but I think the bigger ones will be more concentrated on main lake structure. I've always done best with perch colored crankbaits and white power grubs. Be careful boating on these lakes, the rocks can come up out of nowhere. Somewhere on the bottom of crescent rest my dad's lower unit.

Picked Blueberries on the roadside near Cresent yesterday, Aug 5th. You won't find alot, but enough for you pancakes or cereal. We picked about a quart between us in an hour or so. We were at Brule Lake last week, Bass were on the rocks in 8-10', anything with a worm on it seemed to work.

I agree with JB. Watch the first Island on your left coming out of the boat launch as there is a poin that sticks way out. Looking out onto the lake the first island you see past the point there is alot of reef to the left of it so stay west of it. Best advice is go slow watch for deadheads and be cautious out there. I have been running that lake for 20 years and took out my skeg and prop this year. Never be overconfident, like I used to be! There is some nice main lake structure as well as some deeper points that can produce well. Be careful anytime you are going between islands as well. My advice is get a good map, go slowly, plot a trail with your gps if you have one and then go out and have fun. Also, another word of caution, there are deadheads that float around on the lake just below the surface that can be a hazard so.........again, go slow, your lower unit depends on it!

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
