Thanks for the comment. Went by there today and was wondering about it and what kind of fish were in it. The look of it took me back to the days of fishing the Crosby/Ironton mines. Good times. smile.gif

Lots of smaller to med size small mouths, large mouths, pans and hybrid pans...they bite on worms.. cause its a trout lake , remember no minnows, but you can use salted or canned minnows, leeches or waxies.. I just found out about leeches from the DNR.. i asked..they are live bait so it kind of confuses me... Try the Berkley power bait there.. i have the pink color, haven't tried the orange yet..but they also are biting on worms too.. off the boat landing they are in as well but watch the tree stumps to your right there..

The water level is up.

If you go to the public pier take the stairs down better that way..theres a bbq grill right there by the top of the stairs, you have to look for them..

curfew is 11 pm for trout lakes..

i am sure you know all this..

You can also cast slip bobbers off the pier to get a bit more distance. In summer I set it for about 20 feet deep, but with water temps as they are now it wouldn't have to be fished that deeply.

Just gotta pull it really tight before you clip off the extra.

Wetting before you tighten it helps as well. I've found some brands are prone to loosening up more than others. Most likely due to the thread.

I leave a little "tag" on the ends of a slip bobber knot when clipping, just enough to be able to tighten after it loosens up, but not enough to hamper casting.

So i should cut off the threat i just put on and start over? It might be better..

I slips the tread off the black plastic tube and i pulled as hard as i could, but i did clip it tight to the thread, i didn't know if casing would get tangle .. Will try again..

Thanks for the help...

      Thank you very much Outy22!

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.

      Hi guys and gals,   Does anyone know much about this lake? I don't fish this area of the state. We are looking to stay at Cedar Point Resort for a week. Just want to get to know the lake for what it is.   Is it a bass, northern, pan fish or walleye lake? Or all of the above? The surveys don't look that impressive.   Any good guides in the area?   Thanks.   Avid

      The bite is on in Trout lake. Remote lake walleye fishing has been good. A leech or crawler has  been producing nice fish. This last week Trout lake has been good for lake trout, walleye and bass. A camper had caught and released a 44 inch pike. Bass fishermen reported 100 fish days.   The Y-store is looking into taking on BWCA permits. Please encourage and support them to do so.

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.
