Ann Lake near Ogilvie

Recommended Posts

kingspade651

Just wondering if anyone has fished this lake. Its just outside of Ogilvie and about 15minutes south of The Pond. Ive fished it this summer and did very well on 8+inch bluegills and some nice pike. Some bluegills up to 10 inches. Very few little ones. Would love to get out there on the ice. Lemme know

Its been a few years, but used to fish it a few times a winter. I remember it being a late afternoon (2-3 pm to dark) bite.

We used to fish off the point in the middle of the lake and catch 12+" crappies back about 03-04

Looking at a map of the lake, it seems like a lake that would have a lot of roaming fish. Looks like it gets to about 9 feet and stays there throughout the whole lake. Punching lots of holes and staying mobile is going to be key out there.

Yeah i noticed how much they move around in the summer, especially the sunnies. But when you get on them its fun and nonstop and there's some huge bluegills in there and they taste great. Thinkin i should definitely head up there one of these weekends and give it a try, wouldnt mind catchin some 12 inch crappies

The river runs through there so the water is really stained. Use your jigs accordingly.

Very hard lake to fish in the winter. I think I said this on another post, if your catching 10" gills why would you post it on a fishing forum?

Just my two cents worth

Very hard to fish in the winter. Pretty much a bowl lake. Panfish could be anywhere.

Cuz people aren't that bright or lack common sense Key...plus I really honestly don't think they are getting sunfish that size, they maybe getting 9"ers but a 10"er to me in central minnesota is hard to come by...not saying they arent there, but they are hard to catch...and I would be tight lipped about it too.

I have talked with a couple of friends that have been out to Ann. You do have to punch a number of holes and the 5:00 bite can be the best time. They both were able to find sunnies to 9" or better, so they are worth pursuing.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
