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

That little lake has crappies, dam! No wonder there a crowd there.

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.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
