Favorite Lakes

Recommended Posts

What are everyone's favorite lakes in the PR area? I would have to say my favorites are Big Sand, 8th Crow, and George, but I have only fished about 10-15 lakes up there so far.

Ive only Fished George,Mantrap, and Long. I would have to say my favorite is Long because thats what I get to fish the most. All these lakes have produce good numbers and quality sized fish to. I like to fish Bass and Northerns what are some other lakes in the area I could try out?

yeah Joyner-

I've got a few on my mind for next year. I figure you're probably at home salivating over the thought of a big walleye, pike, musky or bass (not including rock bass!) My favorite lake has to be Belle Taine. Too many good fish in there to pass up. We may have to wet a line there next June.

ps-I left a few notes for the gang on the facebook fishing page that you've concocted.

Belle Taine sounds like fun to me. Get us on that lake and put us on some monsters like our boy Larry Dahlberg catches.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
