Splake

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

Can anyone share any tips on catching splake? I've done some fishing for rainbows and lakers but not splake. Any information would be helpful, oh, and the lakes you've fished for them, too. Thank you,

Chad

have caught splake anywhere from 5 to 80 foot of water. Used to fish Kramer lake -start in 12 ft and work my way out to deep water. When fishin deep you need electronics cause the fish would come in any where from 50 ft to 10 ft below the ice. I used brined minnows (1/2) or waxies on a small jiggin spoon. Fished a lake up by Ely a few weeks ago and caught everything in 5 to 9 ft. of water. Haven't fished Kramer for a couple years but we used to pick up browns now and then too. I would have to say that most poeple fish splake in 20 ft or less.

If you don't mind traveling a little farther north, Larson lake near Effie has some dandy splake. The state record came out of there a few times.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
