Rose Lake

6 posts in this topic

I will be staying at a cabin on Rose over Labor day weekend. Are the eyes going on minnows by then or is it a crank bite. Also what is the closest muskie lake in the area. Not looking for secret spots or anything just a starting point. Thanks

Hey Jerk Bait,

where are you staying on Rose? I have family that lives on Rose and might be there at the same time? Also are you a Brainerd Muskie chapter member?

Hey Jerk, I would recomend, Big Detroit or Pelican lake for good muskie action. Look in the normal spots were you would find muskies. Or buy a park sticker and head to Bears Lake in the maplewood state park.

Meat and Paul,

I'm staying in a friends cabin on the northwest side. I am not a current member of the Brainerd chapter but I've always intended to reup but every time there is a meeting I seem to have something else going. Not a very good excuse I guess. I would assume Detroit and Pelican will have the water beat to a froth on a busy weekend like around here, but a guy can only fish bottom feeders so much. Thanks for the reply

You might go nutty looking for Bears Lake. It's Beers Lake in Maplewood State Park. Beautiful lake, small, usually very little boat traffic. Also has some big largemouth and tons of panfish.

If you fish big detroit it is not so bad. Most of the circus traffic is on little detroit because it is shallower. Big Detroit has one fantastic walleye population as well. It is often overlooked for the reasons you previously mentioned.

      Was wondering what the ice conditions are after the rain on Monday?

      I use my 1660 Lund Pro-V Tiller for fishing Superior all of the time. I have 2' of track on both sides to hold my 4 aluminum rod holders and my triple trees. If you start using magnum dipsys with the ring they can pull hard enough to break most plastic rod holders. In the spring you are basically fishing the top 15' with plugs so any rod holder will do. Once you start trying to get to 40' and beyond is when you need to beef things up. I also have a mast and use the single big boards that Marine General sells for getting a good spread with you plugs. Once summer rolls around I will use Yellow Birds with 5 colors of lead on the outside  and dipsy's with 65lb Power Pro or steel depending on what depth I am trying to achieve to pull spoons or flies.

      I see that the Royal Dutchman website had a blurb a couple days (2/17) ago that said nothing was happening yet, they also don't know how thick the ice is.  As usual hoping for a long spring season before it closes for walleye.  On a positive note most of the snow must have already melted with the record warmth so maybe won't be so much to cause runoff later on?
