Lake I Wanttobethere of course! the water is clear and the access deep. A variety of fish and the wind is always just right. Bugs are few and there is always a passing boat of gals who need directions. You can get the Twins game on your boat radio and your kids are never cranky. Did I mention the parking at the access with the first spot always open for you? The place where memories are made from, I'm sure you have been there..

I really like Pulaski but the PWC on that lake can get a little out of control. My other choice'd have to be cedar or sugar. laugh.gif

I also like Pulaski, it is such a refreshing lake. I take measures to fish when the jetski/ski boat jocks are asleep or wussed out on the weather. :-) Unless it is clear, sunny and glassy, those pests don't hit the water until 10am usually. :-)

I also like Mink/Somers before the pea soup boils over.

But Clearwater is at the top of my list - it's big enough that even on high-traffic days, everyone can find structure to work for what they want.

well you guys r naming of those big name lakes, ill stick to the little ones... haha... ok starting withjohn lake... great bassin' and defintly got to hit the northerns... Indian is another good lake for bass. dang them bucket mouth were on a feeding frenzy with our wacky worms. Locke was a good contender in consistancy. Nuthing real big for the pike, but did manage to get quite a bunch. These lakes lie north of annadale though... Little lakes sure do have the potential to through out the big ones.

I'll agree wiht that. Biggest crappie came from one of those hundred acre lakes. Like Rock for pannies.

some years back I had a hey days on Locke for crappies with the biggest one weighted in at 1 3/4 lbs it was weighted at the old big lake bait store. also smaked a few eyes out of their. havent been their for 8 years might have to check it out again. Indain has always been good for a great bass bite for me also.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.
