Goose lake by Harris

7 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever fished this lake?? I know this is connected to 2 or 3 other lakes, are there decent size fish?? My buddies cabin is on the lake farthest south, I think its called Mandull and he really doesn't fish that much so I am looking for some spots to try.

I fish them for bass all the time. I have caught a

few nice walleyes fishing for bass. There is a slot

limit for walleyes just to let you know.

I believe there is a new 5 crappie limit on that lake now too.

yep- 5 crappie limit and walleyes have a minimum of 17", so basically a 17-20" slot. The lake can be hot at times, but stone cold most of the time. Poor launch, and not that easy to get to. Better bet would be Rush Lake.

Thanks guys for the reply. We did fish the lake last weekend through Monday and we only caught 1 walleye and it was 18". We caught alot of nice size sunnies, not on Goose but one of those other back lakes. We caught a handfull of northerns, 1 huge bullhead and a few crappies.

We'll fish it 2-3 times / year, mostly because we get tired of fighting the boat traffic around the Chisago chain all of the time, there's very few boats on Goose, and the ones that are, usually are people that live on it.

Anyways, about 10 years ago, my dad got a 6.5 lb walleye out of goose, since then........ confused.gif

I still don't know why we keep going back there???

Maybe I'll have to try Rush sometime, never been on the lake personally.

I've been up there the last 4 weekends now and we have been doing pretty good on the panfish. I am not sure which lake it is thou, one of the smaller ones that connects to Goose. We have pulled about 5 Walleye's since opener, all keepers.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
