Independence Help Needed

5 posts in this topic

I'm coming up for a couple triathlons the first two weekends in June and will be staying at Baker Park Reserve for the whole week. Any info on the lake would be great. Will probably bring the muskie gear up, but family will be there as well so look to target the other species as well. What type of fishery does it have and where are some decent spots to look at for fishing?

Thanks.

Andy

their are almost any type of fish in the lake. I haven't fished muskies in the lake but I know there are a lot of big ones in there. It depends on how much the weeds have grown by then.I would start out by the islands and work in behind them for muskies and big norhterns. I did see about a 40 inch muskie back in a boat channel which would be on the west side of the lake also have seen big ones in on the west side when fishing for sunfish late ice. Check back in I plan on going out there next week. I have a cousin that runs the triathlons too.

Decent bass fishing. Have caught some nice walleye on spinner baits while bass fishing in 3 FOW.

Fun weekday lake. Weekends belong to the waverunners and pleasure boaters. 27" Pike and 24" eye in the same run 2 years ago. 40" ski the following day. Nice lake - keep it that way and practice C&R.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
