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.

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
