Star Lake fishing report?

3 posts in this topic

I was thinking about hitting Star yet this winter for sunnies. Is there anyone out there with a current report on fishing and/or ice conditions. I just keep reading about people "who are going to go try it."

My parents bought a lot last year to hopefully someday build on(if they can sell their house in Glencoe first). We heard of and saw some of the nice bluegills in that lake and so far I've only heard of some being caught earlier on West Arm, but they supposedly weren't the biggies I know of. Any tips guys? I'll probably not keep any doosies anyway since I have pretty good fishing by my house, I'm just thinking of doing some scouting for my dad to keep him excited about Star.

send me an email at jgorrmap@tds dot net if you like

I am heading up tomorrow for the weekend and will report back. What part of the lake did they purchase a lot on? I am on the south arm and that the area I will be fishing. The sunfish we have caught this year have been nice but I have only fished it twice this winter so far. The bit has been a short one around

1st light and at sunset. Crappies are real nice also when they

bite.

They bought it in the extreme SW arm of the lake, about due south of the gap between the two western most islands. Its cool back in there since they have a ducky location(my favorite hobby) and great fishing off the dock too. It sounds like the neighbor just drills decent gills all summer long. In open water I tend to focus on walleyes, but in the winter I have an affection for large sunnies.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
