If it's the goose lake on 61, I think that lake is private. Some of my buddies was fishing there the other day and was kick off by the CO and they told them that it is a private lake and people need to stay off or they are going to start handing citations without any warnings.

Not sure, there is no access. Maybe they were stocking it?

They are catching crappie there. It is not a private lake. The whole west side is public. Fish get in from the bear.

I and members of my family have lived in White Bear back to the 1940's. I or any of them can't recall a connection betwee the two lakes other than a shared water table. It's possible they stock goose, but I can't find record of that. A more likely theory would be natural transplantation on other animals like ducks or geese. Or possible private citzens taking the stockig upon themselves heaven help us. grin.gif

My neighbor went there today. He said everybody, including him, were catching tons of 6 inch and less crapps. He moved away from the crowd, and still got tiny ones, but nothing bigger than 6 inches, he said.

People were catching bigger ones 2 or 3 weeks ago... The fishing there has slowed down since last week.

whats up with people cutting trees and branches around the lake. Plus littering all over it. People need to start picking up their trashes. It's no wonder we don't have any more decent places to fish.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
