Calhoun, Lake of the Isles, Cedar and traveling between them

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if once you are on Calhoun, that you can travel thru isles to Cedar with your boat? And what about to Brownie lake?

Yes. You can reach Cedar via Isles - there's a little lagoon & a shallow channel between the two lakes. Never tried to reach Brownie, though. You should try. wink.gif

You can reach brownie from cedar, but any thing much wider than a canoe will not go through. There's a covered canal that goes under the RR tracks on the North end.

It sounds like this entire chain, including Calhoun and Harriet, is totally devoid of pike. Is this true? Also, what is the water clarity on this chain like?

There is pike in the chain. They are low in abundance but are pretty good sized. The water clarity varies from lake to lake. Calhoun has the best clarity of the chain, up to 12.5 feet. Isles has lowest clarity of a couple feet.

I have caught a pike on Calhoun recently and saw someone else get one so I know they are in there but I'm thinking the almighty musky is a little more common.

we used to catch hella pike on calhoun 4-5 years ago on the west side,when it had a dock.along with big bass nice walleyes(especially at night).me thinks there are quite a few tigers in there too wink.gif so unless it has changed i'd say there is a decent populatoin of pike you just have to be able to get to them

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
