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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
