Lake Hanska

6 posts in this topic

Did anyone fish this lake last year? Any luck? I just looked at the DNR website to see if it had any structure, but there was not a map? does the lake have any structure, I am assuming not, but don't want to assume anything.

Lots and Lots of structure, its a really fun and challenging lake to fish, but if your driving down from Minnapolis I'd go someplace else, to a newbie the lake can be kind of intimidating, its about 8 miles long, narrow and full of dredge channels.

The structure is plentiful but it is also very small for the most part, most things aren't worth fishing more than 5 or 10 mineuts. Look shallow first if you go.

We are staying at the Park there, so I am going to give it a shot. Thanks for the information. Is there any part of the lake you would target?

Will you have a boat?

If so then any place in the main basin and around the point can be good, also the next cattail point up from the park.

If you don't have a boat, the channel around the park is littered with rocks and walleyes, jigs or rapala's.

shoot me an email if you want one more spot, nick_domeier77@hotmail.com

Right in front of the channel mouth, casting cranks over the rocks.

Otherwise head down to the ditch, not all the walleyes were fished out.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
