Itasca State Park Fishing

5 posts in this topic

I know it's kinda late notice, but has anyone been doing any fishing on Itasca or lakes in the park? Will be coming up in the a.m. tomorrow and wanting to do some fishing. Just wondering if the fishing has been any good. Thanks in advance, even if he fish aren't cooperating I guess you still can't beet a weekend in God's country.

I would head to Lake Itasca and drag some crawlers in 8-14ft for some action with 'eyes mixed in. I haven't heard of anything else going on up there lately.

good luck

Dano, thanks for the info, I appreciate it. That's what I was hopeing to catch (eyes). I guess a fight on the line if nothing else is still better than no fight cool.gif Was there any specific blade color and float color that seemed to be working better than others? confused.gif

Thanks guys for the info, didn't do great for the eyes' but did mannage ot catch 4 between the the 2 of us. We did find some vey nice bull gills and had a blast with them. Kept enough to have a meal at home and let the rest go, it's fun when you can catch gills that are running in the double digit inch range. Great to be in the beautiful woods area.

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.

      Great fishing everywhere?  Please give me the resorts and depths of the great fishing as that will help me decide where to go.
