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.

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
