Maple Lake (NOT by Reno Lake)?

4 posts in this topic

Heading up to a friends cabin in a couple of weeks and was wondering if Maple Lake (NOT the one by Reno) is any good for walleye? Any pointers on where to find them?

Thanks!

Which Maple lake are you referring to? There's probably a dozen or more in Minnesota.

Sorry, could have been more specific I guess. I'm referring to Maple Lake that's 5 miles east of Osakis and just North of Highway 27 in Todd County.

Thanks

it's a nice lake, but different to fish. it has all the fish you can want to catch, if you want only walleyes, good luck. It does have them though, so nothing is impossible. it's a shallow lake so work the weed lines and such. or maybe try some jigs or crank baits.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
