Has anyone here been fishing this lake. I went out last sunday 12/31 and had a consistent walleye bite for about a half hour. Extremely frustrating because they were not allowing themselves to be hooked, so the would basically suck on the bait until they got to the hole and then they would wiggle themselves off the hook. Could of had about 6 nice walters if we could just of landed the damn things. I have been out the last two nights and have not caught a thing, just a nibble here and there.

Anyone having luck on this lake? Would anyone want to share any information that may help me out?

I asked about this lake earlier and no one seemed to be fishing it. It used to be a walleye rearing pond for the dnr. I was told that it is pretty shallow throughout. How deep were you fishing? The farmer up the road mentioned that the panfish that he caught in the Summer tasted muddy.

I've been interested in trying it out, since it is so close.

The areas I found are like 5 - 7 feet. Seems to be rather weedy. I have heard there are 19 - 20 inch walleyes in the lake if you can find them.

What time were you fishing? What did you have for bait?

I have been out there from 6:30 - 9:30 everytime. the one night the bite was on from about 7:45 - 8:30. I have hear the the sundown bite is good as well, then they take a break for an hour or two. Proved to be true one time, but the last 2 nights this has not been the case, we have got nada. But it is worth a try.

I have not fished there this year, but have in the past. I have never seen anything bigger that a 13" eye come out of there. There is one small hole that gets about 12 feet deep but unless you keep it marked on gps its hard to find, but that is where I have seen the most fish caught.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
