Eagle Lake

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys. I just moved to Maple Grove from Fargo and am thinking of thrying my luck at Eagle Lake. Don't know a thing about it other than it is close and the DNR website makes it look promising. Does anyone know anything about this lake, or recomend any others in the area? I'm looking for perch, crappie, whatever. thanks. I'll let ya know how I did.

I've heard crappies are there, but nothing of size. I have a buddy who fishes tip ups for northerns too.

I haven't heard much as far as perch or walleye in that lake though, but I haven't fished it in quite a while. I usually drive a little south and hit Medicine Lake in Plymouth.

you can get crappies by the numbers in that lake but nothing of size the biggest i have gotten out of that lake is maybe a 10 " and the walleye bite isnt all that good either

Yeah, Eagle has really gone downhill as far as the walleyes go. The perch are tiny, and not worth the effort in my opinion. Your best bet would be to target northerns.

      In the summer and fall the night bite is excellent on Cass for eyes.  I'm not much help come winter time though.  With the clearer water due to zebra mussels, I would bet the night bite would be good.

      When I discover it I will let you know. I have not figured it out yet.

      Depends on your layout. If the walls can be easily removed inside that is usually the better option. If too much stuff is in the way...then yep...do as Cliff suggests.

      Is there a special dance or ritual I can do in an attempt at pleasing said fish gods? Cuz my moves and dance skills just are not up to par this year! Lol.
