Star Lake

3 posts in this topic

We were thinking of hitting Star Lake one afternoon this weekend. Can anybody give me a little back ground on this lake. I have never been on it before. I like the structure and hear lots of reports of guys doing well there.

Well that's where all be right after my son's birthday party I still can't belive my son was born on fishing opener he will be two this year I have fished the lake just about my whole life and I can't figure out what am going to do out there this week end, lot's and lot's of snakes to keep you busy if the eye's arn't bitting. I have had my best luck on the westarm but that could be because that where I fish most of the time. In the morning/evening I use a slip bobber and find a sandbar during the day I jig or troll with a lindeyrig and I mostly use shinners.I hope I help you alittle I never kill the eye's out there but I can get a few here and there so if any one has any advise for me am all ears.Oh ps If you are out there and see a Bluefin boat stop and say HI

Hit or Miss defines Star lake. There's one good spot that usually gives up something. From the access, head north about 1/4 mile, then look for a big Blue silo (harvestor) in the yard of a white house. Line the top of the silo up with the TV antenna on the house, then look for a horseshoe in about 12 feet of water. Sorry I don't have GPS coords. If you can find the horseshoe, you'll know the water is clear this year. grin.gif

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
