Piersons Lake?

10 posts in this topic

I'm going out there tomorrow as I heard there was a nice pike population. Can anyone confirm this? I plan on driving to the tip of the "point" on the lake.

Has anyone driven on there? I've yet to drive on ice so I'm really paranoid. If anyone can give some info on that, I'd be greatly appreciative!

Thanks,

Tink

tink, im not familiar with that lake, but from experience, id say drive where there is an obvious vehicle path and youll be fine! Dont drive on uncharted areas, and if you want to fish away from a crowd, park and then hike off the beaten path!

Ice fished it once last year, goose-egg. I have summer fished it in the past and have had mixed success--some very good days and days I couldn't buy a strike. (Kinda like my fishing luck on any lake ;\) ) Also a chance at a tiger muskie there. I would be interested to hear how you do, I have been thinking about giving it a try again this year.

Its a decent bass and northern fishery, not doesn't have the best pannies around.

I grew up on that lake- you won't find "roads" out there, and very few fish it in the winter- if at all. There are 3 points on the lake, one on the NW shore-with a sharp breakline- one just west of the access and (probably the one you're referring to) a point jutting out from the mud bay on the SE side of the lake.

For slimers, the point on your east side is the ticket, so is the distinct weedline covering the entire west side of the lake. Also try out from the reed bed - at the access head east along the south shore and set up along the deeper weeds.

The point to the east has a trough/inside turn that is pretty money, but you may have to punch a lot of holes to find it.

It is a great pike lake for numbers, and occassionally something surprising comes out- I caught my personal metro best a 42" pike out of there 4 years ago- probably a once in a lifetime fish given the water. I have spent countless hours out there and was finally rewarded. Please let the big girls back to keep the fishery in check, good luck.

Hey Tink, I was out last Sunday in January. Bounced around from 10 FOW to 30+ FOW. All I could manage were 3-5 inch perch. Approx 4-5 rigs were fishing the neckdown area of the SE bay. I didn't wedge myself in there for courtesy's sake, but in summer there is a pretty defined weedline if I recall correctly.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
