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 just checked the cedar Island Access there was about two-and-a-half to three inches of ice

      Not sure how much ice, but guys walking out with portables in the bay this morning.

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Yeah I thought if that. Just looking for other opinions.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
