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.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
