      Fishing Minnesota has added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. Initially we are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20 members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then Join Now! Some of the clubs are starting to fill fast.

Pine Mountain Lake

Recommended Posts


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's just that I don't know anymore.

      I haven't fished up there for a couple of years but the first time i fished it was about fifteen years ago and we were on moccasin. We did pretty well caught lots of sunfish but size was nothing special. Crappies were decent with a couple large ones. Since then i have gone back maybe three times and caught more large mouth bass than anything.

      Makes sense. I live in northern Minnesota so most of our lakes don't seem to require much stocking other than old mine pits. I'm not familiar with the southern half.

      I picked up new rain gear last year.  I took a layering approach and went with Gill. I love the stuff and can more comfortably wear it in warmer climates.   jacket - bibs - bib& insul bib -

      Like stocking walleyes into every mudhole in the state? Yes, I'm exaggerating, but if walleye stocking were ended, lots of lakes would eventually be walleye-free. Stocking fish in Minnesota (walleyes, trout and muskie for the most part) is done to boost tourism and all the various industries associated with tourism. That includes resorts, bait shops, restaurants, boat manufacturers and retailers, tackle manufacturer and retailers, clothing manufacturers and retailers, guides, advertising, publishers, websites and probably others I haven't thought of. It's a big part of the economy, and the popularity of muskie fishing is booming. The state should promote and support muskie fishing just like walleye fishing for the same reasons. No, I'm not a muskie fisherman. I own a few muskie baits and occasionally fling them around, but not seriously. I'm too old and my shoulders are too lame to do that very long. I've caught maybe 6 muskies in the last 15 years, and most of them were caught bass fishing.

      I need to pick up 1 or 2 Muskie combos by June but haven’t fully decided what I want. Other than that, I’m taking it easy. My checking account is still feeling the effects Black Friday 2017.
