How about good trout lake

5 posts in this topic

Just wondering if somebody would be willing to share their knowledge on this subject.Is there a lake in the vicinity of upper red that has a fair number of stocked trout that we could hit on our annual ice trip in Jan.We wont have a sled,but will have a 4 wheel drive.Would be willing to walk in up to a mile,If the snow isnt #**#& deep.I have seen some of the listings of lakes from the DNR,but was hoping to find one not so popular.

Did you see Benjamin Lake on your stocked trout lake search? It's off Country Road 39 about 5 miles from Blackduck. They've been stocking it every year with Rainbows, and the average catch size is suppose to be 11"-12", so you may want to check it out on the DNR site.

Very sorry about that. The forestry office had thought that you could since it is not located in Cass County, but Beltrami County. After four telephone calls with the DNR in Bemidji they said that the only trout lakes that can be fished in the winter in this area are in Clearwater County.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
