Info on Star Lake @ the end of August, please

Recommended Posts

stoneeyes317

Hello all:

I know this is a bit early, but I am fortunate enough to be able once again to visit the Ottertail area, and Star specifically, from 8/23 -8/30. We are going to be staying @ Eberts, a GREAT place to stay, and Jim there put me on some nice crappies 2 years ago. I am O.K. there, but was wondering if anyone could shed some light on walleyes and northerns for me. I'd even take some tips for bass. I will be out with my wife, who likes to bobber fish, some of the time, but I will get out on my own some as well. I would like to concentrate on live bait rigging, or jigging, which is something I've just begun to do. My dad always took me to Rush Lake as a kid, and all we did was drag spinners and minnows around...

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, and I would be willing to trade my crappie spots/info.

Stoneeyes317,
Late Aug. on Star can be a challenge to be sure. I'll give you an update later on. You should have a good nightime crankbait bite, provided you bring along 10 gallons of Deet! email me at kesche@prtel.com for more info. Do you have access to a GPS unit? Let the anticipation build! Kent

Look for an email about Thursday evening or Friday afternoon. And yes, I have a GPS, a Garmin Etrex.

Stoneeyes317,

My girlfriends parents have a trailer at Star and I'm heading up in a few days for a week of fishing. I'm fine on the walleye and northern in the lake, but haven't really gotten into the crappies. I would love to trade some tips with you. Shoot me an email at hrustang@yahoo.com and we can trade some tips if you'd like. I will also be up there a week before you in August and should be able to give you some updated info. You're right, Ebert's is a great resort with an awesome beach.

Sorry it has taken me so long to post back; our server was down, for us anyway, from Fri. until last night. I will be emailing you in a couple of days. I am also going to post some general questions in the crappie/sunfish forum. You might want to take a look there as well...

Check the "midday crappies" post in the Sunfish/Crappie forum if you want some crappie info...

Stoneeyes,

I just got back this afternoon. The walleyes are really slow up there right now. I'll look for your email soon.

I tried to email you Sat. evening, but it was sent back to me as undeliverable...

hrustang@yahoo.com is right, isn't it??
My email is eyes317@charter.net; it might work better if you email me first???

eyes317

Also, I noticed from your profile that you live in Faribault; so do I.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
