Lake George 1st timer

6 posts in this topic

I am heading up to lake George later this month, girl freinds parents just got a place there. I have heard it is mostly a bass lake but I would like to find some eyes or some crappies. It looks to be mostly a bowl with one good mid lake hump. I am looking for any pointers I can get, looking to take her old man out and show him some good fishing. I see a couple of inlets that might look good if they are still running with lack or rain. Are there any hot colors or lures for lake George? I understand if you don't want to post top secret info here so if you let me know I can add an email or cell number. Looking for a better understanding of the lake.

We had good luck all of June and July pulling chartruse spinners on the south side in 12-20 feet of water. We caught a little of everything,pike,crappies,bass,walleyes, and pan fish. It was always a good time for me and my 2 sons, aged 11 & 13. Things slowed in August so we switched to crank baits and had some luck. We haven't been there in 3 weeks so I can't tell you how the bite has been lately. We didn't target bass, but it seemed the guys who did had pretty good luck all over the lake. Good luck.

Thanks guys, do you like minnows, worms or leechs on your spinners. Any particular cranks or color of cranks. I heard the water has a little bit of a brown tint to it.

Mostly crawlers and some on leeches. Perch colored crank baits. Let me know how you did, we will be there the weekend of September 29 & 30. School and the boys sports really mess up my fall fishing and hunting opportunities!

Not problem, we are going up 22 and 23rd. DO you ever drift with a jig and minnow,leech or worm and bounce it off the bottom. I was thinking more around the deep hole and may be up some of the steep drops on the north end of the lake. What are the weeds like in the lake? Lilly pads? Deep weeds? Cabage etc..

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
