Pine Mountain Lake

3 posts in this topic

My family and I are staying at Rutgers resort in mid July. Wondering if anyone has stayed there and what they thought of the resort. We be in an RV. Also wondering on some information on fishing the lake that time of year. We are mainly interested in walleyes but will try to catch anything that swims during slow walleye bites. smile.gif The lake looks like it has a good panfish population and are the northern on the smaller size? Any other type of fish that would interest us? Live bait rigs work for walleyes along the points and dropoffs or run something over the weeds that time of year? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks wink.gif

I live near Pine Mountain Lake and only have been on it twice.

Being able to talk with some of the locals, I haven't determined whether it's a "Dead Sea" or a "sleeper".

I think those who fish it regularly, keep pretty tight lipped. I've seen some nice sized pike come from there, along with limits of walleyes.

I guess it's one of those lakes that you need to spend time on, and start dissecting it. The south end has a few deep holes and some deep weeds.

The north end has alot of weeds, and many set up their ice shacks there.

Just be careful around the north east side, as there are a few stones. Get a map and it'll narrow up your search.

I've found that by using the Cass County parcel map system, that they have some ariel shots of the lake. By studying the photos, you can actually see some of the shallow humps in the lake.

Sorry I can't give you more...it's just that I don't know anymore.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
