Apple Lake

4 posts in this topic

Hey everybody! I'm a newbie here but i've been reading a lot and i want to thank you guys for all of the great info. There is a lot of priceless knowledge within these forums. I hope that maybe i can contribute to it sometime.

What i wanted to ask is if anyone has fished Apple lake and if so is it any good? I heard a rumor that walleyes have been caught out of there. Any validity to these rumors?

I took a drive on sunday morning to see if i could find apple and to see if it was even accessible. Very scenic. The maples were on fire in the morning sunlight it was beautiful. But thanks for confirming. i have heard also that they are nice fish in there. I might have to check it out this winter. What is the deepest it gets?

Good Luck with that one tongue.gif, ive wasted many-a-day chasing those same rumors, if you like catching a bazzillion perch that are 3 inches long, or 8-10 inches and infested with worms, then go buck wild. im sorry man, i think the few walleyes that remain in that lake are no longer. it was used as a rearing pond years ago(80's)by the DNR, but it isnt managed for anything so i dont think there is a great population of game fish in there anymore. it also is a very small lake, that now seeing it on this site, its sure to have been fished out by now. but i know the lake pretty well, its about 20ft deep, pretty much a bowl, no major structure, lots of weeds, and did i mention there's a $%!T TON if perch!

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
