i've heard there are some snot rockets to be caught in this lake.i've also heard it is very shallow and weedy.since the city lakes arent freezing yet i got a itch i gotta scratch so does anyone have anything they can tell me about said lake i would like to get out to cut holes and do some tip up fishing and a couple hammers would be fun too.

Really, really weedy. Never tried it in the winter, might be interesting. There are some scary-big carp in there! Let us know if you're planning an expedition.

In the late nineties when I worked in Roseville and in-laws lived right off of CR I, I fished this lake a lot.

I think the aerator is way off on the west/south end. I would fish the east/ north end, out from launch. I would lurk around, until I found 15-17 FOW and graph fish. I caught some nice crappies out of that lake. Nothing bug, but after picking threw them, one could get enough for a meal. At least good action. I would go out of launch area right southwest, until I found depth. Small jig, spring bobber and a small crappie minnow. If they slow down, fish right under the ice. I worked second shift at the time and found 3:00 am to 6:00am a very productive period of time. Once and awhile, a hammer handle would rip me off.

Good luck!

Good luck!

try that tiny little thing right off 35W before 694 on the east side. it looks like an acre. there are always guys on that thing and it has to be frozen completely. i have no idea if they catch anything, but my guess is whatever gets in there during the spring high water is fished out really quickly this time of year.

I thought the same thing last year and ventured out there after work for a couple hours and didnt even catch a nibble or graph a fish ... maybe i was doing something wrong, but i moved around and tried different set ups , just no luck.

It's just south of 694 on the east side of 35. I've always wondered about that lake too.

ive canoed and fished the lake in the summer and spring. There are a lot of very small gills in there, and i have seen some absolutely ridicoulous big carp in there. I believe the aerator is by a drainage pipe where the dock is in the summer. I am gonna try and go out this weekend just to see if the carp will bite through ice

Shackbash, the answer to your question is either west round lake or valentine.

I have fished all of these lakes and havent caught much but dinky little stunted bluegills and paperthin crappies.

round lake


Thanks! This is the one I was thinking of. Been years, but valentine was nother one I fished. I can not remember cathcing anything out of there either.

I also see the pond you guys are talking about. Never fished that.

If I was in this area fishing, I would stick to Snail, Long, johanna or Silver.

Ryan, the one that I was referring to was on E2 and 35W. Its really more of a pond than a lake unless you are trying to sell "Lakefront" property. never fished that before but have seen guys set tip ups on the SW corner of it.

well i went out to lake(pond) "x" (the one on 35 and E2) and found myself with plenty of fish but nothing over five inches in the whole pond i dont think... If you saw three guys out there that was us! i was in my pak shack and the two buddies were just sitting outside with lanterns... we were out for about3 hours and caught about 20 4-6" crappies with a few sliver sized sunfish... there is about 3 1/2 to 4 inches out there by the way...

Later,

Ryan

      Where are you located?
    • eyeguy 54
      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon. 
    • mrpike1973
      Nice Crappie!
    • Rick G
      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
