Bad Medicine lake trout PLEASE help

Recommended Posts

kgpcr4

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.

      Boot lake is not open to fishing.  I checked typo lake yesterday. Really sketchy right out from the access about 10 feet or so. Past that there was 4.5 inches. I did not fish just wanted to see if I got the new auger blades on correctly

      Nice Duff.  Don't you have a furs and feathers board, or you don't hunt and eat um? 🤔

      Here's what I have in the man cave. I refer to it as "The BIG Board". Usually add a couple pics a year, this year I've added 7. (It's been a good year)   On a log basis, I've kept track of days fished on ice and open water, species caught, and how many different bodies of water per year. About to wrap up year 20 of doing that, usually just jot it down on the calendar at work and tally it up at years end. That log total list is on the side of  The BIG Board.

      Any news of ice conditions in the Mankato area?

      Wanted a smaller compact high ah battery for early ice to run my camera. Found the Milwaukee M12 comes in a 3ah version, ¼ the weight and size of the small 12v lead acid and charges in 30 min verses 12 hours. Also the + - contacts in the battery match the male outlet plug and work with male spade lugs so connecting it to electronics doable. On line I can get a twin pack 4ah under $40. Pic is the smaller 3ah with a 5.5mm power cable. Video is my camera panner in motion with the M12's.

      My 4th year in southern MN. Seams to be normal deer running around where we have been hunting.

      Definitely would give the season a B. We were very fortunate in seeing a good number of deer. I sat a total of 4 sits during gun season and saw a total of 26 deer 6 bucks the rest does and fawns.  We went 4-5 with 3 nice bucks and doe being harvested. Would of easily filled the last tag but my brother is a trophy hunter and is very selective.  Me and my brother practice QDM and have put in a lot of food plots and minerall licks over the years and it has really paid off. . Its a lot of work but the rewards are worth it as I harvested 5 bucks in the last 5 years this year a  Nice 9 point . Looking forward to checking our trail cams soon to take note also  of our buck inventory.

      Where I hunt in the extreme eastern part of the arrowhead deer numbers show be low. My group of 7 guys hunted the whole season and saw 5 deer while hunting. A spike buck has been lucky as most have seen him and chose to let him walk. My dad took a 6 pointer that was chasing a doe. It’s not about killing a deer for me it’s about spending time with my family and it was a great year.    The population is where it it should be in the arrowhead. I am excited to see a possible wolf season coming again up there as it’s fun to have a wolf tag in the pocket just in case one slips up and comes out by you. My season was great would I have liked to see a few deer yepbut it was the relaxing I needed and provided me the stress relief I needed.   Taking out wolves would help the moose population so that is my stance!!!

      Thanks for checking and the report 
    • iiccee63
      Well I went out and checked the lake Friday am. All locked up. I walked out a bit and it looked like 2 inches. It froze over even which is good. Hopefully it's 2 inches out in the middle too. More info to come!
