Sullivan/ Platte Lake

2 posts in this topic

I am looking at buying a place on Sullivan Lake. I have fished it in the past, but not lately. Can anyone tell me how the fishing has been, and what they have been fishing for? Any other info would be appreciated as well. Thanks in advance!

I get to fish the lake twice a year when I'm up at a friend's cabin, once in the summer and once in the winter so while I don't fish it a lot I have been up there a few years now.

Here are my thoughts:

The lake itself is pretty built up so it's not like it's a lake that is suddenly going to see a lot of pressure on it via new home construction.

The water is very low this year so you may want to see if you could get your boat in the water, it has been an issue for some.

Overall, the fishing is decent. Some nice bass are in there and the panfish are decent. Some nice bluegills can be had, I haven't had the chance to fish for crappies much, but have caught a couple of decent ones.

Lots of northerns but they run small. Walleyes probably don't get hit too hard since Mille Lacs is so close. I have had some success by trolling at night with cranks and you will not have much night pressure on the lake.

The lake water is stained, is not overly clear. A good tackle/bait shop is 10 minutes away at BearTrax and Porky Pine restaurant (unless the name changed again) makes a mean broasted chicken. Some good deer hunting is around, too if you're a hunter.

Hope that helps.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
