Choice of 3 Lakes

8 posts in this topic

I'll be in st. cloud the weekend after the opener. I'm leaning towards going to sauk lake because the baitstore in town always sells good batches of minnows (rainbow chubs in particular), however Clearwater and Koronis keep calling my name. I eventually want to fish all 3 lakes this summer, but which do I go with for that weekend?

I have never fished Sauk so can't help you with that one but I have fished both Koronis and Clearwater after the opener and caught eyes on both.

I would pick Koronis. Fish near current at night!

i'd have to go with sauk...always had good luck there and like you said the bait shop in town is one of the best around

I'm taking my fiance's little brother, so it's gonna be a big emphasis on panfish for him, and while he's doing that I'll be targeting pike mostly...and after he spends a couple hours catching a few sunnies I'd like to see him graduate up to some hammer handles. I'll probably do some walleye fishing, but that's not too big of a deal to me. As I stated before, I plan to hit all 3 lakes this summer, but I'm leaning towards sauk just because I'd like to hit it before the algae bloom gets too bad. Gas prices are the main reason I'm looking at clearwater.

With the panfish, pike walleye combo Sauk is a good choice.

Unfortunately the price of gas will be the main factor of my decision making now...and with that being the case clearwater is probably gonna be my choice now.

Another good choice. In fact you really can't go wrong with the three lakes you mentioned. laugh.gif

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
