Forest Lake

5 posts in this topic

I was wondering what Forest lake has to offer and perhaps what area to fish for Walleye.

Im going there or Clear Lake on friday Sept 1st. Forest Lake has a point between lake 2 and 3 on the north side called willow point. Along that weedline on the west is a well known hotspot, that I will be trying tomorrow. I will repost here with info on how I did.

Can be an excellent lake for Muskies and bass. The key is persistence and the size and type of bait. I have caught and released skies in the upper 40+ inches there.

Went out tonight, and caught NOTHING. I have been having zero luck all summer long, so its no surprise to me. I usually catch a few off that point. but tonight....NOTHING...sorry.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
