Island Lake?

2 posts in this topic

Looks like I'll be up at Island Lake just before Christmas this year for a family gathering. I figured I would bring my ice fishing gear with and see how it goes. The problem is I have no clue what it's like fishing this lake...

Does anyone have any suggestions on areas to start, structure, depth, etc? Maybe some common color schemes that work well here? At this point in time I really don't have any second-hand info to go by, and am not sure if my LakeMaster GPS chip includes this lake.

edit: I'm specifically referring to the Island Lake north of Duluth. Not the one near Red Lake.

I have only been fishing here for a couple years and i have not tried Island yet. I have looked at maps of it, it looks like a beast, there is a ton of structure in that lake.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
