Fox Lake - Rice County

7 posts in this topic

Anyone fish this lake at all? I took the dog out for a cruise on this lake last week, but couldn't fish because he likes to chase the lures, jump out of the boat and sit on my rods. Seems like a nice lake though, just wondering if there are any fish in there?

Thanks

Bullheads, sheepshead SMALL sunnies, bass are not bad, try the very north end by the turtle traps. Watch out for the VERY shallow pennisula under water there. Fox is basically a circle and on the north end there's a marshy part. Right when you are crossing out of the "circle" into the marshy part, it gets shallow.

There are a couple walleye in it. NOT MUCH, best for those guys in winter (thats when I have my luck). I have tried to throw eveything at them in summer, differant hours, nothing. Crawlers, leeches, minnows, trolling, cant tell ya how to summer fish them, If you find out, PM me the secret!

Goodluck!

Chris

Thanks for the reply... I figured there is not much for fish, but I'd like to get my hands on a bass or two for fun, until I can get up north again. I'll let you know if I have any luck.

Thanks

Fox is at its best when the water levels are high or at least normal. Spring is the only time I really fish it. I have experienced good fishing only during high water levels.

Otherwise during the Summer months its mostly small pannies and tiny bass.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
