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.

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
