Kettle lake in Oakdale?

9 posts in this topic

I think that's what it's called. Hwy 36 goes over it, off 35E. What's in that lake? How do you get to the ramps? Any special rules?

It's Keller Lake. You access it on a little ramp of of Arcade just north of 36. You can also get on Gervias with this ram.

Hwy 61 is the same as arcade - Its been a while but I think so on 61 then right at first chance then right again and go back under 36 - look around a little - u can see the boat access from 36 on the no side. Excellent bass lake and a few skis also!!

You can take County Rd C west from Hwy 61 to Keller Pkwy and turn left. Or you can take Roselawn Ave west from Hwy 61 to Arcade St and turn right.(first right)

Your best bet for bass/muskie/walleye is going to be around the point on the east side of the lake. Basically, right when you get out of the channel, directly to your right on the mian lake.

I have had a couple 2 ski days (nothing bigger than 36", but fun) and a day where my and bro got two twin 21" eyes. The point goes out quite far under water into the lake, and is really sort of the only main structure in the whole darn lake. There are little points and humps, etc. but nothign else on that scale.

That is the lake I learned to fish rubber worms, and on our one trip this year, we caught a ton of bass on plastic. Still the best bait for bass on that lake.

Also got a 38" pike several years ago (released) so there is potential for some biggies smile.gif

Have fun! Quite busy lake, but not early in the morning.

Try the carp fishing if the bass are not hitting. I did it a couple of weekends ago and it was a lot of fun on a very hot day when I did not feel like working for bass.

Box - Do you and your brother hunt geese during the early season? If you two have any open space in a field, can I come along? Still working on Pam for the new boat but it is not looking too good. I may need to start looking at used boats.

Hey Mike,

Our one close field is not allowing anyone to hunt this year, bummer. They are afriad of liability since the value is now up so high, and the surrounding retail areas are closing in. So that stinks. Oh well. I don't have any other near by permission. Have to work on that for next year.

I doubt I will go early season this year. We could go up west at buddies near Fergus, but I will prolly be at lake fishing smallies smile.gif If you are interested in that, Erik might be coming up for a day over labor day, and prolly has room.

Otherwise going to NoDak next weekend to do a little work and buddies place, and hang out with our friends who farm up there. If interested in NoDak hunting in real season, that might work. About $100 for license, but no lodging cost anymore, and about 18,000 acres from just our friends, much less the rest of un-posted areas.

Talk to you later. I just painted a new duck boat I got, and will keep that around here this fall. 14'

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
