Lime Lake Pike

4 posts in this topic

I have never fished lime lake before and live about an hour away from there. I am just wondering if there is anyone out there catching any northerns yet and if anything else is biting. I have a buddy from balaton i have been fishing with over that way and we have tried fishing Yankton and Sarah with no luck yet.

I live 2 blocks from Lime Lake.

I have not been on that lake for about 2 weeks.

From the county park, you can either go straight north to the "Big point," go east to the "Safe point," or go a bit west in front of the dam. Tip ups with dead smelt are a good option. Or, you can fish the areay along HWY 59, focus on the area in front of the culvert.

Lime has huge pike. There are also a lot of 2-4 pounders in there.

You can pick up an occaisional perch, or really nice crappies also. However, you're going to have to do a LOT of moving around to find them. They have been gypsies and are never in the same spot the next day.

Good luck.

There are a zillion pike in Lime.

The depth is the same through the whole lake. It's a pothole. You will see where others have been fishing. You want to be about 50-75 yards from the shore line. If you are along the highway, get closer to shore.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...

      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. 

    • Consider me in on a personal boycott of The Landing. Horrible horrible horrible customer service skills by the owners/management.

      1) it is much quieter on the water without the big blasters running up an down the lake from the Landing.

      2) Had a craving for wings while out fishing one night. Called ahead ordered up some wings- great taste- tiny crappy wings. Asked for a side of Blue Cheese and Celery - upcharge of like $3.00 for those. Washed it down with a bottle of Coors Light. $23.50

      Large group went in one night and they usually tear up the bar. Were told they can't play jukebox until after 10 pm it was 9:40 PM- ONLY GROUP IN THE BAR.  "They are trying to build up an Ambiance"

      Got their bar tab and they were done. Yearly group that dropped a lot of cash in the past. Never again until new ownership is on board.

      Unfortunately they have deep pockets.

      As soon as new ownership / management takes over the crowds will return.
