Pearl Lake

5 posts in this topic

Anyone been out to Pearl Lake recently for Bass or Northern? Have a fishing tourney out next week for bass and toothers and was wondering if anyone had any pointers. Never been to the lake and plan to prefish it this upcoming week.

I havent been out there this year yet fishing except for sunnies, however I have had good luck trolling rapalas for northerns. We trolled deep divers in about 12-18 fow and caught a decent number of northerns. The colors we usually used were neon green and blues. Good luck

Was out this weekend and hammered the bass. Fishing in the weeds using black plastic worms carolina rigged. Was out both Sat and Sun mornings. Between two guys we caught 30 plus bass - largest being 5 lbs. Tried spinner baits but couldn't keep the northerns off. Bass wanted it worms fished slow. How did you do in your tournament?

Tourney went quite well besides the super thick fog that didn't let up till around 9:00. We ended up taking 3rd. We thought we had a good chance at it with a nice Largemouth that was near 18" and two others that were 14 and 16 but ended up getting smoked by a boat with a young boy around 9-9 yrs old that brought in a 18 3/4" Largemouth! So it was really fun to see him win it. He won a guided bass fishing trip with a guide from St. Cloud as well as 2 tickets to see the Twins vs. Detroit this weekend in the 4th row behind 3rd base. All the entry fees went to Habitat for Hummanity and we ended up raising $440.00 for a super cause! Feel free to come join the tourney next year. It was put on by Celebraton Lutheran out of Sartell and are hoping to make it much larger next year!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      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.

      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.

      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!
