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.

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
