Lake Lura question

5 posts in this topic

I am planning a trip over to Lura for opener next weekend & was wondering if anyone has any info on species in this lake...I have heard there are some nice size eyes is this true? also curious if there is a decent crappie bite going on over there. Appreciate any comments.

Thanks,

as for the walleye yes there are a few hogs in there not sure about the crappie population however, one other thing

lura lake is real weedy in the spring to the point where half the lake is choked out with weeds so i would question if its worth your trip there yet or not just a thought.

Hey luckycrank does it get weed choked this early? I wanted to try it this spring too. I know it's shallow and gets weedy but I figured I'd at least have a week or two after the opener.

Thanks ~piker

Had a blast fishing lura this winter... saw some beautiful fish come out of there. they were very spooky, had to stay still and couldn't fish in a house during the day. Saw many eyes come up drom 25-29".

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
