Taylor Lake

8 posts in this topic

Was wondering if anybody has been out trying Taylor this winter since the DNR has opened it for ice fishing for first time since the 60's??? If so how did you do?

I assume like in the summer it is no power anything correct? I figured it would be getting alot of pressure, it is usually a good lake in the summer to catch some trout on, was going to make the trip up there from St Cloud, but maybe not if a guy has to fight the crouds on a small lake like that?

got a buddy that has been out there a few times this winterand says -Lots of pressure, but has caught trouts every time out. Can't snowmobile or use a wheeler, have to walk from the parking lot if you can even drive in that far. I think you can use power augers, just can't drive anything to the lake.

      Oh man, I forgot about the South Switch. I haven't been there in close to fifteen years. I doubt that it's changed.....maybe I'll head there tomorrow night!

      Anyone been out lately? I normally wait until the leaves start dropping but am getting the itch to get out pretty bad.

      Prices a little high there too....   Come on down to the switch or the crescent.  

      Didn't Bayview try the upscale dining thing a few years ago?

      Where are all the Duck reports from the almighty Pelican? 

      Did all this rain fill the lake back up?  I haven't driven by at all. 

      I bet the crappies and gills are growing nicely.   Soon enough.

      Yep it is the 3 S's - I just don't think a lot of people are going to be grouse hunting with a shovel - but not a bad idea.

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400. 

      Thanks for the Update, I think that I did see less birds out on Edwards as well later this summer. Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :)
