Potato Lake?????

6 posts in this topic

We are going to be staying at North Beach Resort. Can anyone tell me if it's nice. Is it pretty shallow around the resort? I seen RobertELee say in another post that there are some rocks you have to worry about. Is that by North Beach resort?

Is it a easy lake to fish? What color jigs work best?

Thanks in advance.

Check out a lake map before you come up. The shallow rockpiles are all usually marked before opener. I would check closer to when you are coming to see what color is producing, but from my experience color doesn't matter as much on potato as presentation. Talk to the guys at delaneys and northern bait and see what is producing. It is a very fun lake to fish, just stay near some structure and you should be okay.

Thanks for the information. Do you know anything about the resort I asked about? I imagine the two places you told me to ask are bait shops? In Park Rapids?

Thanks again.

      with the current weather and the forcast for next week, we should have great ice by next weekend. be safe out there this weekend, ice just took hold on smaller lakes, the wind has kept things uneven.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
