School Section Lake

3 posts in this topic

I'm new to the area (moved in on the 26th of Dec.) and have heard the pannies are biting on School Section... Anyone been fishing down there? It doesn't look like a big chunk of water or much for structure.

Feel free to e-mail me if you are willing to share any info.

Thanks,

Mike

I was on school section early this year very very very slow, but there are some good eater northerns in there. The lake is pretty much a bowl with most of the lake being about 12 feet at the deepest i think, there are some nice weed beds out there i think. Hope that helped

      How big are the hooks you're using, wookie?   Make sure they're big enough, especially if you're using big minnows.    I also use heavier line than most people (10 lb flouro) on our rattle reels so I can set the hook with a bit of gusto without worrying about breaking off.  I might get a few less bites than my friends using 4 lb or 6 lb test, but in the long run I bet we both get the same number of fish on the ice.

      I have read that mercury levels are a reason there is no commercial harvest on vermilion. But it was probably the same thing you read as I have not found a second source of that. There is commercial harvest of rustys on other Minnesota lakes so there must be a reason it's not done here.    For or what it's worth, the DNR has suggestions on how much fish to eat because of mercury.
