Diamond Lake

8 posts in this topic

Wondering if anyone can tell me anything about Diamond Lake? I'm new to MN and drive past this lake every day, and thought it might be worth a try this winter. Any info is appreciated.

Which Diamond Lake? The one in Dayton? About 3-4 years ago it was loaded with 9-12" walleyes. They could be 15-17" by now or ???

I guess it is near Dayton. Not far from Rogers HS and Cabelas.

If your talking about the one in Dayton its just a big bowl tops out at 10 feet, no structure to speak of, I have fished it quite a few times best success I've had is putting tip ups all around with just a little crappie minnow. It is very hit or miss, biggest ive ever pulled out of there is 18 inches out quite a few fish, can be fun for a little spur of the moment walleye run.

bullhead galore in that lake too. I thought the DNR went through with their nets taking out the walleyes somewhat recently? Anyway, the walleyes that are in there are the size of a cigar and probably taste like a mud-pie. There will be some fishermen out there at some point though.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
