Jail Lake

1 post in this topic

Hi all,

Anyone been over towards Jail Lake, few miles NE of Pine River off Co. Rd 48 I think it is? Was there last year and annually for several years prior and the lake was down a couple feet, and fishing was not as it had been in the past. My family has fished this lake for years & I basically learned how to fish there as a youth with my family, so I'm curious from a historical/emotive/family liniage perspective more than a current state of fishing report. Fun lake with a lot of childhood memories.....

No public DNR access, but the two places on the lake allow access. Rumors were that someone blew out the beaver lodge that fed to the "Little Jail" and down to Lizzie I believe it is? That's what dropped water levels, as "legend" has it.

Anyone with anything to share is much appreciated....

      Hey all, I've been looking at upgrading my ice fishing set up and came upon the Eskimo propane auger and EVO shelters. Would anyone mind giving their opinions/experiences with either product? Thanks, stoneeyes317

      Fishing good today. Finally got a break in the weather! Fished alone. 32 fish total. Ten walleyes mostly big ones but I did keep an eater, rest bass. Three at 25". Biggest bass 19-1/2" - 4.60 lbs. Best lure Fin-S-Fish on 1/4 oz football jig.   I wasted the early morning trying to catch some more big pike - zilch. Downsized lures and got into bass & walleyes. My guess is they are filling up on ciscos - especially based on the pike stomachs yesterday - stuffed!   Today's video
