Star Lake

4 posts in this topic

Heading up for the labor day weekend. Had good luck there last year, just wondering if there are any fish to be found?

I have not heard much about Star since this spring. We did ok in the arm in June. I have not done a lot of fishing in the fall at Star, but I will keep my ears open. I have heard that it is a better spring lake than fall lake. That was just one guy's opinion.

Let us know how you did.

Did you post in the Ottertail forum -- they may have a better idea.

This is a little late, but Star has picked up a bit in the recent past... it gets REALLY tough to pick up walleyes on Star during the mid-summer heat. We were out the past two weekends and did considerably better than we have been doing. We picked up about 12 keepers in about 6 hours of fishing the last few times we were out. I have only fished one spot, so I don't know how the "lake" is producing, but if you fish the NE edge of the huge structure in the middle of the lake in about 23-28 fow, that is where we picked up our fish. Leeches and crawlers worked equally well and we didn't even try minnows? Spinners and jigs seemed to also do equally well?

Have been doing alright out on Star ourselves the last couple of weekends. Leeches were working and went to shiners

last weekend and the fish hit them pretty hard. Fish were also in the 18-22 ft depth.

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!

      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.

      Captain Acorn, I fish Jiggin Raps quite a bit on Vermilion, have for several years now.  I Cast em, fish them vertical and move around and cover ground at a good pace with them.  I am not sure there is any key to getting snagged less, other than knowing your spots. They are certainly an effective and a great way to catch fish.  I personally do not remove either the front or the back hook.  Believe me if you fish these your going to donate a few to the depths, just part of the game.    Good luck! - Roosterman
