Lake Benton

4 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has been out fishing on Lake Benton lately? Was thinking about going out there on Monday or Tuesday and trying by Stoney Point.

Lonewolf,

I have no idea if anyone is fishing or catching fish on Benton. I drove by Stoney tonight on the way home (Monday night) and noticed some thin ice signs in a few spots north of the east boat launch. Can anyone tell me what these signs area there for? I've heard that someone is netting out bullheads. I just don't want to go out and drop my truck in or anyone else to either.

Other than that I don't know if anyone is catching fish. I'd like to know also. Thanks

fishing4fun,

Thanks for the info. Maybe I'll find a different place to go fishing today. Thanks again.

they were fishing bullheads with nets out on Shaokatan a couple years back and a few years prior to that and they do put the signs in the ice. They have to cut a big enough hole in the ice to pull hoop nets out so it is pretty iffy around those signs. Usually you can see where they cut though. Actually, last Monday or Tuesday I was driving through LB and saw them out in the bay by town pulling nets. So, I know they are out there just not sure if the signs your seeing over there are for bullheads or if its actually bad ice.

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
