Farm and Garden Lake at Moose Track Resort

4 posts in this topic

We are headed up to Moose Track Resort on Farm Lake. I am wondering what to expect and bring fishing. It sounds like Farm and Garden Lake are part of a chain up there. I will be with small kids, so I am looking for it all. Panfish for the kids and smallies and walleye for me. Getting a few larger pike would also be fun. I am wondering if others have fished the lakes and what to expect this time of year. Thanks for all replies!

We didn't get a chance for a week vac this year up there frown.gif

We use to spend a week in July at Timbertrail lodge.

There is a hump/reef on farm that is good for Walleyes and Smallies. Leeches used with tiny glow jigs under slip bobbers work in 6-12 ft early am and before dark.

Troll shad raps in this area also. Colors Perch, firetiger, clown, gold.

Post your results when you come back!!!

Thanks for the info rodmaker. I found the hump you were talking about. Fishing was slow for me. Overall leeches with a slip bobber did the best for me. Highlights were a 31" Northern, 15" smallie, and the kids and I got into some 8"-9" sunnies. Walleyes were few and far between and in the 10"-12" range for us. My buddy also did get a very nice crappie. A very mixed bag with low numbers of each, but we managed a few, and like I said the kids got theirs so that was good. FYI - Most all of our fish were off of the islands in 6' fow or less.

If you can next year , go up there in July, anytime after the 4th. The hump always produces out there. You will catch plenty of eyes and bigger smallies. last year trolling cranks , I caught and released a 22" Smallie. Graphite replica is going to get done on this. I'll probably send in the photo this Winter. Waiting to see if i can pull a 30" this Fall trolling cranks.

One last thought. If you get a chance, contact Bill at Timbertrail. They catch some of the biggest walleyes in Fall trolling cranks. They have a guide that works with their resort. grin.gif

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
