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.

Is it froze over? Have you checked the ice? Thanks!

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.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
