Hey guys,

I'm hitting this lake for the first time this afternoon and boy does it look interesting. I took a look at the maps and just the fact that such a small lake (~110 acres) can get to 60' deep is gonna throw me for a loop. So I'm looking for anyone that has fished it before, and might have a heads up what works well with that type of environment (not to mention our recent weather change).

I'm not real great with figuring out how to fish deep if thats what its gonna require, but I do what I need to catch some fish. The whole lake IS surrounded by lily pads though by the looks of things, so that should make for an easy starting point for something to try. I dunno, any heads up would be great. Thanks!

P.S. I want primarily bass, but some nice sized northern would be great as well (and I hear this lake has em).

I live closer to that area, although I've never fished these particular waters. Check out the Faribault area forum and post your request there, I'm sure you'll get some great basic advice from the locals.

I live on the lake. Check out the south central forum, I have made posts on it. What time are you going to be out there?

Oh, well, I hadn't found a forum for that area by quickly browsing through, so I'll try there. I'll be on the lake roughly around 5pm till dusk tonight.

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
