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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
