Spider vs. Island lakes

5 posts in this topic

Will be staying at a resort on Island Lake(next to Eagle/Potato) this year after going to Spider Lake(Nevis) for 10+ years. Will be there in mid June. What kinds of comparisons/differences are there between the lakes. I've checked out the DNR info. Just looking for some more general info. No specific spots. I like figuring a lake out on my own. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Don't mean to get off the subject but next time you see Steve at the Bark a Lounge, tell him to smile once in a while. That guy is so grumpy he drives business away. I hate it when I have to drive 6 miles up to the other bar on 71.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
