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.

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?

      Oohhh, I'll tell you what folks, it is just a beautiful day to be in the northland!!!   Heard that one a time or two.   Classic Country Sunday, the opening 15 minutes were the best.
