any 1 fish it? i know its a small lake but its close to my house, and i might bike down to the park on the east (i think) side of the lake because there is a small opening where i might be able to toss a line in when my dad cant take me and the boat to a bigger lake. i think it might be called sunset park, or something to do w/ sun.

try to find a lake map on the dnr site. it has sunny and

crappie. it's known to freeze out but hasn't in the last

few years. good places to fish all around the pond. during

later ice fish the deep hole, other wise you can shore

fish almost all of the lake but the north end. later Dogg

Hi, I keep a kayak in the City rack on the West side of the lake...and I often fish it when I have a little time to kill and don't feel like taking the Skeeter out.

There are a ton of very small panfish in the lake, very high numbers of bullheads. Also some northerns & bass in the obvious spots. But the lake is very shallow, very weedy so not too easy to fish from shore. And it has been hit with winter kill a couple times in recent years. It might be interesting to drill a hole or two in the ice this winter in the main lake basin...I haven't tried that yet, but may give it a shot this year. Access isn't great, so plan on wrestling auger & gear down a steep path.

Hi, I fished the lake when I was younger. My buddy and I would take his duck boat and fish the lake. There are some nice pike and Bass in the lake . My biggest pike was a 36". Biggest bass was a 19". We would use spinnerbaits. I know some people catch nice crappies in Alamagnet in the spring.

Good luck!!!

Brian

Well the park that i was going to fish happens to be on the north end (Sunset park). i was planning on fishing there because it was the closest to my house. is it worth my effort to bike down to alimagnet park instead, and find a spot to fish there?

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan
