Island Lake

8 posts in this topic

Has everyone heard about Island freezing out because the DNR did not turn on the areators?

Are you kidding me?? Why would they not turn them on?

Island Lake is in Lyon County and does not have an aeration system. Are you referring to Split Rock Lake near the town of Ihlen?

No I was talking about Island. I did not think that there was areator's on the lake. I was told this the otherday that the Marshall and Pipestone paper both had a article on the lake a couple of weeks ago. If anyone in that area could confirm this that would save me a trip to go after some perch.

the best I can tell you is I saw a 9# northern caught out there last Friday. He did tell me that the water had a smell. Yes there is no aerator on that lake.

This lake has had a smell the last 3 or 4 years. Last year it was very murky and smelly and there was talk of a winter kill then. For everyone that was out there this year, you know that is not true with the amount of fish and pressure that was on it this year. Just wondering what next year will bring.

Getting back to fishing, has anyone been out to Island lately? I've never been out there myself but know a lot of people that got into the perch out there earlier...hopefully if there is a oxygen problem, the warm temps will help.

      Made it out to North Center today by sunken island. Not very good, one perch. Marking them just not committing. Lots of water on ice, but ice is fine. 17 inches.    As far as north access, off Nelson road on east side there is an access. Put money in the box and don't be a Richard, I believe it is owned by a farmer and let's people use

      Lake St Clair is a blast. If you hit vermilion at the right time it will be right up there with that. No reason you can't have a 100 fish day with a good chance at many big fish. Going by my phone pictures I had a great day on June 17 a few years back ha. Theres no shortage of rocky shorelines and docks. I'm a fan of tubes myself but I know guys love their senkos.    I'm sure you'll get some more specific responses. Wish I had more time to chase them myself
