Island Lake

5 posts in this topic

A question came up about Island Lake in one of the threads, & I'm curious if anyone is fishing the lake too (this winter or past). Went there for the first time for an hour or two this summer & came up empty-handed. Reports would be welcome, I'll do the same if I get out there soon.

I drive by the lake every day on my commute to work. I as well would be interested in any reports or may just stop by and drill some holes.

Maximum12-

Do me a favor and give me your email address. I have some information you might be interested in.

Are you going to the Metro Get Together Jan 15th on WBL?

Does your boat still go 12 mph with three people in it? If it does...give me your motor an I will modify it for you. grin.gif

Take care,

Smelly, I'm always interested in information! E-mail: Corey.Kellgren A T Bestbuy.com.

My boat will go 15MPH with only me in it. And 18MPH downhill with a tailwind. laugh.gif

I might be at the WBL gathering ~ I have a buddy who puts his permanent out there randomly ever year & doesn't catch anything (seriously ~ he didn't catch one fish last year the two months his perm was on the ice). I'd like to learn a little more about the lake since I've only fished it once or twice.

Hope to see you on the ice again this winter!

Anyway, I sent you an email.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
