Bad Medicine lake trout PLEASE help

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if Bad Medicine is still a great trout lake. I have not fished it in a few years and am thinking about heading up there in the next few weekends. Any reports would be great.

I go there occasionally, mostly just because its one of the nicest and most scenic lakes in the state. Did you know thats where they filmed the old Hamms beer commercials? Fishing for trout is usually decent early in the mornings. They mostly run from 10-16" long. Walleye fishing usually is pretty good in the evenings. Swimming is great during the day.

Still a great trout lake. Numbers have been fewer and smaller for me this year. The spring '07 class are most plentiful and still too small for my liking. Fall '06 are nice size ... two year olds are beasts. I'm a downrigger ... small Vampire rapala. 30 feet down in 55 feet of water. I've seen some bobber fishermen do well. Not sure the presentation but would like to learn it for the kids.

The swimming is fabulous though and I've done more of that in my 30 years on the lake.

I fish the lake quite a bit, always catch fish. Some days are better than others of course. In the spring I mainly pull #7 jointed Rapalas around and do very well until the water warms up. I'm not a downrigger guy, this time of year I mainly use floats. You're right there is nothing better than catching a 16" + trout on an ultra light for the kids. Of course the adults love it too.

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
