Lake George

4 posts in this topic

So my girlfriend said she saw an ice house out on lake george the other night but i thought you couldnt ice fish out there because of some city thing against drilling holes?? Has that changed or did anyone see that person out fishing???? I think she might have been seeing things but i never walked out there to look for holes to see if it was true or not.

I don't think there would be a lot of time to get some fishing in before a St. Cloud police officer would kindly kick you off.

as per St. Cloud Ordinances....

Subd. 2. Fishing.

(a) General Prohibition. Fish in any waters, whether by the use of hook and

line, net, trap or other device, except in waters designated for that use.

(B) Ice Fishing. Fish through the ice on any part of Lake George. No fish

house will be placed on Lake George nor will any person drill or chop holes

in its ice.

Hope this helps.

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
