Spurzem Lake

8 posts in this topic

Anyone fish Spurzem Lake with in the Baker Park Reserve? I'm heading up to camp with the family for 10 days on Thursday and thought I may take a jaunt on over to fish it. From what I've read it seems like a pretty nice little lake. Just like to get some first hand accounts if possible.

Thanks.

Andy

I plan to hit Independence on a regular basis, but thought it would be nice to go try Spurzem as well.

I'll take tips for Independence as well if you have any.

Thanks.

I haven't fished Spurzem in a few years, but I remember it being O.K. No trophies in there, but some decent action. It's a nice get-away when Indy is whitecapped.

Good luck!

I icefished it this year and found some crappies, it was frusturating cuz they wouldn't stop moving. They'd be on the sonar for 3 minutes, catch a few, then nothing. Not much to speak of for size, biggest I got was around 9", but it looks like there's alot of 'em. I did get a couple of real nice perch too, which really shocked me. If memory serves me right I got about a half dozen b/t 9 & 10".

I heard this place was somebody's little gem for panfish, but I'd thought it was okay. Everybody has got their favorite spots I guess.

      Just got back, Warroad access is foot travel only two trucks broke thru on weds morn. Went to Spring Steel on weds it was drive out at your own risk they had a truck break thru tues. eve, I walked out in the little bay there maybe half mile out 7 hrs 1-flag-1-fish 34.5 at 230 that was it did get to see a truck break thru just one tire but they had alittle trouble getting out. Today walked out of Warroad did not need the auger found plenty of open holes. Fished till 100 no flags there were other people out and they were as busy as I was. By SS the ice was 2 feet  but the top foot is getting soft I seen atvs out . It was nice day on the lake yesterday I heard 66 in town also I had a critter attach it self to my sucker today that I did not know was in the lake, a lamprey. I hope this helps you guys be careful out there and good luck.  Stay Safe Good Luck   Bear55

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.
