Any Lakes with Lake Trout?

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if there are any lakes within an hour or so of the metro with stocked lake trout??

Well it looks as if courthouse lake may be the only lake that possibly has any in it, however I called the fisheries manager and he said that they do not put any in there anymore because the past fish they put in there came from the state fair aquarium displays and they do not do that anymore due to disease spread possibility. The numbers they stocked in the past were so low anyways, you would be extremely lucky to tie into one of these few stocked adults from the fair. Looks like the next closest lake to have them is Grindstone lake in Pine county. Darn cry.gif

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I don't personally own a smmity sled but I've herd many great things about them.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
