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.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
