Lake in Spring Lake Park

7 posts in this topic

There is this tiny pond east of HWY 65 on Osbourne (west of Silver lake road) and I always saw people there ice fishing and I drove by there Sunday and say 2 guys in a little boat, any idea's if they are catching anything?? I wouldn't think there are any fish in this due to the size.

I've found that place once and wished I had fishing stuff to take with me. Haven't really looked for it again, but wish I would have taken the time to find it. This is where there's a small playground in a park, right?

This Pond is called Spring lake,if were talking about the same one, playground and beach on the N.side? I used to live right by it. Anyways I caught 1 northern there a few yrs ago and some small sunnies but that was it.It suffered winterkill frequently but if I'm not mistaken an aerator is now in place. I no longer live by there but would like to hear if you have any luck.

Lost,

I took a walk down there the other day and the shoreline is very shallow, you pretty much need a canoe to fish this pond.

Maybe sometime we can meet down at Long after the opener and try for Northerns?

I grew up on this lake. Not really any fish in it anymore. Some stunted sunnies and a stray northern but it does winterkill quite a bit. I remember fishing it as a kid daily for years and never really catching anything. We still had fun though.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
