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.

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
