Andrusia Lake

22 posts in this topic

Well, its that time of year again, where the ice is starting to work its way onto the lake. Its crazy how it all works isnt it.

I was wondering if anyone has any reports from Andrusia this year. How the summer went for fishing. We are going to be coming up spearing in Dec again, so i was curios if there was any information out there.

Thanks all for the king words.

We were there in late Sept. Great fishing on Andrusia. Nothing huge, but a lot of consistency for eyes, especially during some tough times. Some great areas out there that I wish I could come back and icefish.

it is a great area, we have been there for many years in the wintertime, stay at the resort on the lake. It is awesome fishing up there in the wintertime.

Fish 14-18 feet and fish like you would on any other lake for walleye in the winter and you'll do just fine. Not spectacular by any means but you'll catch fish.

Good Luck laugh.gif

There is a reef out from where the river flows "into" Andrusia. Tops out at about 4 to 5, drops off into 40 on one side and 30 on the other. There are numerous twists and turns of the reef, hence the spot on the spot theory. Email me and I will give you precise directions there if you would like. That goes for anyone else. I'm all for sharing grin.gif

Yes thats the point off of Joe's lodge I'm guessing.....I was going to college at BSU and was a resident of Joe's Lodge for the winter. I went fishing many days on andrusia last winter and this is a productive spot....but I found that fishing in that 14-18 foot depth does just as good as any on the lake needless of structure....although the reef could be better for early ice

Anyone spot any musky while spearing last year on Andrusia? Just curious what you guys saw as I have never tried it.

kokke,

We fished this one as well, and did fine. The one I am referring to is farther south and it is not on the maps for some reason. Funny thing too, because it is pretty large. You can almost see it from googleearth.

Bass n spear. I would get ahold of Troy Fideldy. He has a pic up on the spearing forum of a fish he got on Andrusia. He has been staying on the lake for the past year when he has been going to school. If you can't get ahold of him let me know. I will be able to. Email me at Hoytmystic@hotmail.com

With muskies in Andrusia, do they still allow spearing? I thought spearing wasn't allowed on musky lakes, or are there only select musky lakes on which spearing isn't allowed?

you can spear on andrusia, you cant spear on cass lake.

When we were spearing, there was 5 other guys with us. Each day, everyone saw a ton of walleyes, with a few monsters each day. There in the shallow water, or i should say coming from the deep water.

Email me if you like, i can hit you where we were.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Thanks Cliff, weather looks dynamite so that's a good start!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
