Potato Lake

2 posts in this topic

Heading up the last week in August. I have never been to the area before so am looking for any direction/tips. Looking for walleye and bass. 98% catch and release (kids want one fish fry - usually panfish) I also have two kids looking for action so any ideas for panfish would also be helpful. Thanks much.

I fish Potato a lot, and I can tell you the walleye fishing is going pretty good right now. The bass are abundant and are fairly easy to catch year round on the lake, smallmouth and largemouth.

There's a ton of eater sized 'gills in the lake, just look for cabbage weeds and throw a worm under a float.

Post this in the Park Rapids forum to get a mass of information...

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
