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.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
