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

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
