Beaver lake activity?

12 posts in this topic

I'm new to the forum but I've learned a lot just reading the posts. I'd only fished trout streams before moving to MN, so I have really enjoyed the variety here!

Anyone been out on Beaver lake recently? I fished there a bit in the summer but I have no idea how it does under ice, (ice condition, bite) I'm planning on getting out tommorrow and the weekend but didn't want to drive that far without knowing anything. Always learning. Thanks

Wish I could help you. I haven't been there yet either and it's definately a drive in the event of a skunking,(happenned twice on that lake last year!). If you do make it there this weekend write either a post or shoot me an e-mail if you get a chance, let me know if it was worth the drive. Thanx!

There's a deep hole right out in front of the dock. We've fished that area in years past. Had a little luck with eye's and one rather large northern on a tipup.

We've been skunked on Beaver lake enough times for me to think we're best trying our luck elsewhere from now on.

If you give it a whirl, hope you get into some.

Maybe you should try the Faribault area? It'd be about the same drive from Rochester and would have more lakes to try if it is real slow on the first lake you drill into.

Thanks for the thoughts... Long story short 12 hours, 18 or more holes yeilded 1 bite. Ouch. Think I will stick to the Faribault area. Hey who needs the gym when you can drag a sled for 2 miles and drill 20 holes with a dull auger in a day smile.gif

I fish the lake regularly. Going out today again. Bite slow. Christmas weekend found some small perch to throw back. Heard of a couple walleye caught about half way down the north side of lake but did not see personaly. Try to find 20 ft to fish.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
