I was at a Christmas play last night and drove by Lost lake on the way. That must have been you twords the middle of the lake as I saw one lighted shake and was wondering if the lucky person fishing was on a hot crappie bite. I asked about this lake because I took my daughter to the playground there a few times this year and on those occassions I tossed a line from the fishing pier. I was suprised and pleased by the size and number of fish caught. I caught sunfish, crappie, bass, and pike. I am for the most part a catch and release fisherman. The lake is small and I thought it might be worth a shot one night afterwork for some good quick action through the ice. It appears to be connected to White Bear so you may have a shot at a walleye as well. Do you fish this lake often with much success?

Yeah, that would of been me...That was my first time out on lost in years. According to the dnr, the lake did winterkill last year, but they also say it re-populated itself. They also stocked it a couple times this year with perch. I'm not sure if it is connected to white bear, but I was thinking that it was as well.

There was a few holes out there when I got there, and I also drove by tonight and saw someone out there, so It does get fished, but its definitely not fished as heavily as it was a few years ago. It wasn't uncommon to see 3-4 houses out there in the early winter.

good luck, and if you see a purple otter out there, that will most likely be me.

Shhhh, speak quietly, that's my favorite small lake to hit. I know people are listening here.

Seriously, it dosen't get a ton of pressure but it's not a real producer of big fish. It is connected to WBL thru culverts so there is the chance of anything there. There is worse lakes to kill some time on.

BTW, I have a Eskimo quik flip 2 so if you see me out there stop and say hi.

I have a the Eskimo Quick flip II as well. I would never try to ruin any man's littl honey hole. I just need something close to bend a stick for those days when I only have a few hours to get on the ice.

It's really not that great of a little lake, it's just close for me as well and you don't have to fight alot of people. Decent pike and you can catch some metro sized sunnies and crappies.

Try a tip up by the dock in about 10 feet of water, half way down.

At least we know the name of the lake this year. The next step is to actually get out on the ice and fish it.

i figured lost got winter kill, i hit the crappies out there about five times and every fish was the same size, they must all be stocked by the DNR, too bad it used to have some dandies. in 97' i cleaned 10 crappies over 1.5 pounds out of that lake.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
