Pierz- fish lake

11 posts in this topic

I'm heading out to Pierz this upcoming weekend and not sure if I am going to bring the boat. Anyone fish this lake at all? Is it worth fishing? I'm mainly a C&R bass guy so I guess curious if any bass in there?

Thanks for the help

I don't think so. Wrong area.

Is it the one north of Rice Lake, a real small private lake?

I have wanted to fish there, but never found a place to access it. frown.gif

Icehawk, correct me of I am wrong!

I also believe he is talking about the one near Rice lake. Skeets you are right. Definately a private lake and you have to know someone to gain access to it!

fished it this weekend, it is east of pierz on 27, about 2-3 miles from 25. there is a public access. real small but a few nice structure points and strong dropoffs at weedlines. caught some decent bass, 2 at 16 " and the rest a little smaller. few little pike as well.

Man you guys have bad sense of direction its southwest of Genola or Pierz by a few miles. Use to fish it with my grandpa and dada alot when I was a kid, use to be a good sunfish lake especially for a kid but I heard the DNR netted out alot of the sunfish or they were just fished out. Anyways haven't been there since but had some good memories with my mentors there!

Bluegill is the winner!

The lake is mostly west and a little south of Pierz/Genola and it has a public landing.

I havent fished it for about 15 years but we used to get crappies at the bridge by the landing, in the spring. We also used to catch some nice sized bass in the summer fishing the drop offs with a jig and pig.

I guess the lake I was referring to is called "Pirz" Lake.

IT is near Roscoe in Stearns county.

My Grandpa fished Pierz Fish Lake darn near every day. He used to do very well for panfish and bass, and in the winter he'd set up a spear house. I don't know how old he was when he speared it, but he once speared a 32# northern out of there. They had the picture hanging in their house but the mounting had long since deteriorated. I would guess he was in his 40's or 50's when he got it. That would have been 50+ years ago.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
