Depends where you want to fish, the upper or lower lake. The launch on the south side of lake city is nice, but can be busy. There is also a decent launch on the north side of Lake city. 4 seasons bait in Red Wing is Ok. It is just past Mcdonalds.

Herky, Try the Hok-Si-La public landing on the north side of lake city then. It is a short trip to Maiden Rock from there, plus there are few points you can work around on your way up too. Good luck out there!

Stop in to Ike's Bait & Tackle. We'll show you where to go and give you information on where the fish are biting.

Take hwy 61 into town and turn right at the Perkins. Follow the service road back under the bridge and we are the big green building next to the Super 8 motel.

We where just voted one of the top 10 bait stores in Minnesota by Minnesota Tourism.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
