I used to fish this lake all the time until some B-hole yelled at me claiming the lake was private! He also said that he would call the cops if he saw my truck parked out there again. The fishing is awesome, and i would love to get out there again without being hassled by owners. Where do you guys park and where do you go out from?

Right down from the school you use to beable to drive on the lake untill they dropped huge rocks there.. What you have to now is drive down past that spot and there is a road on the left hand side (Not Sure Name Of it), but you can drive on the lake down there. You have to go through the small channel to get back out on the big lake pulled a 14lbs northern last winter. Good Luck... Lots of hammer handles !!!!!!!! Good Luck

They also added a barbed wire fence there now, according to the DNR they said that you could access it here due to the high water mark, but the city of HUGO has declaired it a no parking/loading zone due to the small road there. Kinda sucks but Eh ohwell ..anyone know of a house that they are selling in the area?

You can only fish this lake in the winter, unless in the summer you want to park on the nearest highway and walk really far. There is another lake/pond that is connected to it, in the winter it freezes and people park on that lake. Nothing illegal about parking on a lake, all water is public. You can either park on that lake, walk or use a sled or atv and reach north and south school section. I was there last weekend and decided to drive my vehicle through the bay and reach School Section. Ice was around 12-14 inches everywhere. There was a lot of 1/2 tons driving on top of the lake also. Good luck and stay safe.

I don't understand why people say don't fish this lake. Some of my best winter crappies come out of there, plenty of nice size pick and even my largest bass since leaving Arizona a 22 inch largemouth last year. Try the southern section where the tree line is for some fun. Good luck.

I can't give you a recent report, as I haven't been there lately, but the Sunday I was there I got some sunnies and crappies. Most of them are your usually stunted metro crappies and sunnies. I caught a few keeper sized ones but all fish were released. That lake experiences winter kill almost every year, but it bounces back quick. I know it gets crazy pressure in the winter. If you want something for size there are better lakes around that area.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
