Fish Trap lake questions????

8 posts in this topic

Hey Folks,

I have done a little research on the DNR website regarding this lake for a possible bass opener. What I'm looking for is your favorite spots...Just kidding. Anyways I'm wondering if this lake holds allot of shallow fish and how much "slop" fishing is to be had on this lake. If this is a fun lake with numbers I might be interested to run over there just for the morning othewise I'm going to stick to my origanal plan...Gull Lake/WFC. Any help or imput from anybody familiar with this lake would be great, fear not that I be pound it all summer long because soon as Muskie season opens I put my bass gear away.

If you feel more comfortable to emailing some info see my email below.

Thanks,

Meat-Run

There is some slop to be had later on in the year. It is a good lake to fish docks. I do a lot of early season crappie fishing on FishCrap and have caught a lot of bass. Nothing too huge but there are a ton of 2 pounders in there. Your best bet for that lake is July or later. When the pads are good and thick. It is off to the big pond after the bronzies for me this weekend.

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
