lake reports/docks in or out

12 posts in this topic

Ok guys/gals, here is my lake report for Tuesday4/12/05 and wendesday 4/13/05.

Tuesday drove by the following lakes: Buffalo,Rock,Ramsey,&Maple lakes. all had docks in except for rock lake.

Now for Wednesday 4/13/05 I drove by the following lakes,

This might be long but bear with the info.

Now what I have is what I wrote down off of the public access signs unless I state other wise.(please do not shoot the messenger). grin.gif

clearwater access- bobs bay public water access mn dnr no docks in.

bjs, bait and water front access docks not in.

clearwater access blackpool public water access mn dnr, no dock in.

cedar lake public access on co.road 6 no dock in.

this here is my own observation:

clear water private access on hwy 24 and co rd 39(?) it is just past the co road 6( to the cedar lake access). anyway charge is 5.00 a day(?) and the dock is in.

I then drove around the clearwater narrows and campfriendship road and came out on Hwy 24 and 120th street nw.

I did not find any access to clearwater lake on that drive if i am missing something please let me know.

anyway, I did come across on this drive a public water access for Bass Lake on Knowes ave nw & Klever ave nw.

this does not look like it has a dock, it does look like a really nice quit lake. that might be fun to fish. I do not know. does anyone have any info on this lake?

Ok on ward we go.

Sugar Lake Hwy 24 and sugar lake road off of 105th and 106th and Hoyt ave nw. dock not in.

sugar lake on hwy 7 side dock not in.

also went by indian lake dock was not in.

Every access i went by had cars,trucks and trailers in the parking area's(except for Bass lake).

On Sugar, co road 7 side there was a little rubber raft (boat)with 3 big guys(not kids) in it fishing what a sight.

I hope this helps everyone. I will do another report on the docks later this week/weekend if i get time.

Hope everyone has good luck. thanks, Take care, Lynn

on edit add this thanks.

Anyone have any thing else they need please give me spicifics as to road #s and landings, and I will try to help you.

Thanks Lynn

CPTNTIM,yes I did get your emails. Hopefully be able to try out this weekend. I have friday off, I have to take Brandy in to get spayed. I will let you know how I do when I get a chance to try out the area.

Jigginjim, Thank you, yes I do have a job,this was all after work. I took the my two dogs with so they could swim thus no report on how they were bitting. I just shore fish anyway,so probably would not be much to report.

Thanks,Lynn

Lynno-

I fished Bass lake all winter. It's a nice quiet lake but the fishing is pretty slow. I caught a ton of snake northerns a couple fridays ago trying for sunnies. I caught one sunnie in about a dozen times out there. Otherwise it's snake after snake if you can find them. I was going to try it a couple times this summer when I don't feel like hittin' up Sugar. My boat's kind of a pile, but you're welcome to join me for an outing if you want. Thanks for all the info on the docks! I was planning on hitting Sugar or Cedar tomorrow. Looks like I might have to get my feet wet. tongue.gif

Where are the crappies on Sugar?

Dock on north side of Sugar is back out of yesterday. Sarah was not in as of Monday. Most of the lakes have re-frozen with walkable ice. Winterizing the boat again! grin.gif

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs

      Vermilion is less than 20 miles... Or eagle nest 3 (and 1 and 2) are right next door.   You might check them out.

      Love seeing guys out training dogs but you can really do  some serious damage to your dogs neck if it runs hard for a long distance before being stopped suddenly when the check cord is attached to a collar. I would suggest a harness instead that has attachment at the back that you can clip your check cord to. It will also flow off the back and less likely to get tangled up in the legs and belly which can also be dangerous especially when in the water.   It doesnt look deep where you are but you never know whats under the water that could snag your check cord. Sorry dont mean to preach but I have seen it first hand where a dog has been seriously injured from this. I know the prey drive and hard charge these dogs have, but you got to keep them safe.   good luck

      Can you keep smallies from the Ottertail?  Thought there was a restriction on them in there.
    • Chill62
      If I go on an infected water I get it cleaned regardless.  Granted 99% of the time I fish a non-infected lake but still get it cleaned just incase.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a report of zebra mussels in Comfort Lake, near Wyoming in Chisago County.  The DNR confirmed reports from a lake resident who found individual zebra mussels in two different areas of Comfort Lake. The resident had previously attended a volunteer aquatic invasive species identification training conducted by the Comfort Lake-Forest Lake Watershed District. A follow-up survey by local partners and the DNR confirmed dispersed zebra mussels, indicating a possible reproducing population. Signs at lake accesses have been updated to alert boaters to the presence of zebra mussels. The DNR encourages all lake users to watch for zebra mussels and other invasive species and to contact the DNR if they find a suspected species that would be new to the lake. This confirmation is an important reminder to follow the state’s invasive species laws: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Zebra mussels are an invasive (non-native) species that can compete with native species for food and habitat, cut the feet of swimmers, reduce the performance of boat motors, and cause expensive damage to water intake pipes. Less than two percent of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
