Heading to Island Lake

4 posts in this topic

I friend of mine has a cabin on Island Lake south of Langby and has invited a group of guys to go down and spend the weekend. I don't know anything about the lake, and was wondering if anyone could give me some info. (ice conditions, and what a person would catch) Thanks for any help you can give me.

Take LOTS of adult beverages!!! Island is not a lake that you would travel to for the fishing. There are some pretty tight walleye regs in force to try and bolster the numbers. All 17-26 inch walleyes must be released. (course that doesn't matter now) The crappie population is non-existent. The perch numbers are alright, but the size is on the smaller end. 34% of the perch sampled were 9", but thats what you have to look forward to. You might catch some bigger ones, but you have to weed through the smaller ones to get them.

But hey, it's better than working. Right??

I know of some people that have done really well on panfish there, but they havent hit it lately. They were finding them in 12 - 16 foot range, but like I said that was a while ago, so who knows if they are still hitting. Not sure about the ice either.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
