camp lake??

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anybody has any information on camp lake just south of St. Cloud off of highway 10. Everytime I go up to the cabin I see people fishing it. I'm woundering if it's worth droping a line in this winter?

Well if you look at the DNR reports which is usually the first thing i do before trying a new lake it says its full of bullheads and thats all. But we have 10000+ lakes in minnesota so they might not be up to date. Tons of other areas lakes that are worth trying

I've wondered the same thing as well because I would always see people out there. I gave it a try a few times and learned that there are a lot of small pannies and crappies, with a few decent ones on good days. They can keep you busy so a kid may have fun with it but not a lot more than that. I've seen some smaller bass with the aqua vu. Rumor has it that at one time it was a walleye rearing pond, I have never seen a walleye caught or with the aqua vu. Everyone I talked to also said "they heard" of walleyes and were giving it a try. I dropped the camera by one of the perms out there last year and there were six piles of beer cans on the bottom, so I think some of the people are out there to catch a buzz and not so much fish. Not a lake for me, try it if you wish and maybe you'll be suprised but there are many more productive lakes around.

That survey was done in 1980.

My brother lives on this lake. I haven't fished it much. The little I have fished caught a ton of little largemouth. There are also sunfish, crappies, pike, and bullheads in there with a few walleyes.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
