Schmidts Lake

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone fish Schmidts Lake? I have fished it a few times and caught mainly crappie. What has everyone caught out of this lake? Any walleye?

I would recommend not going very fast until you've been around the lake with someone who's been on it (like me) or you have gotten familiar where all the logs/stumps, and long points are. That lake can be trouble if you are not careful. There is a LOT of submerged wood just under the surface that you cannot see out there.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
