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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
