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.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
