Snail Lake

3 posts in this topic

I fished the south basin of Snail lake today. This is the first time I have fished the lake since last summer. I caught several potato chip sized bluegill, all with a sever case of black worms. I fished 22, 18, and 7 FOW all the same story. I didnt see any pike or bass which I have seen on the north hole and I catch some nice ones in the summer. Just an update for all of you Metro anglers. I wish they knew how to clean up those black worms. Later - Andy

I fished Snail once this winter. It was non stop for chip sized bluegills like you said. I caught one poor little guy that was so infested with black grub that the fish itself was almost entirely black in color. I've never seen one quite like that. confused.gif

      I like to sacrifice larger shiners just for their scales.  Ill take my thumb nail and work em off in the hole and a big cloud of scales slowly make their way down.  Ive never been a fan of a pile of dead minnows under my hole.

      Fished today from 23ft-33ft. Moved 8 times. 3 guys. 2 fish. Thus far.... Case anyone else who prefers an honest report cares to hear one.   75+yrs experience with 40+ on this lake during winter. For whatever its worth.

      Has anyone been out the past couple of days and if so how is travel across the lake? Cam u get most anywhere with a 4x4 pickup?

      You might be able to get away with one and half minnows at a time, but no more.... lol

      My experiences would suggest, R&D  resort on Straight Lake and Eagles landing on 5th crow wing.
