Island Lake in Shoreview

Recommended Posts

Any decent fishing out there this time of the year? I just want to catch fish, not really worried about size although that will be a nice thing to get as well.

Looks pretty shallow from the DNR maps. Max of 11ft. Would think it could freeze out unless there is an aerator. Never fished it though. Could be an undiscovered gem. Let us know if you go out and how you do? Have you fished Snail lake in Shorview? I have been thinking of trying that one. I like Turtle a lot. Lots of Bass. All catch and release.

Hey Lost!

I've only fished Island over a cover of ice. I caught lots of little sunnies and a few walleyes. No crappies. I usually catch a few decent crappies out of there, but not this year. I would think fishing by the bridge would be good. You'll have to fight the crowds... I drive by the lake every day and there is always a line up of cars. Anyhow, let us know if you make it out there.

You can catch sunnies & crappies by the bridge. Nothing with any real size, but still fun when they're biting. As far as the max depth of 11', I'd have to say that it's a bit off. There are muskies and cats in there. Caught a 28" muskie off the fishing pier last summer, and have heard of bigger...

Hey Bellomy! I mean jblabsnduck? What's up? yeah, it's me. Did you fish Island at all this year? I was out a few times and I looked for you. What's new?

As far as the 11 foot thing goes... I don't think it's even that deep! Not sure why the DNR keeps shoving walleyes in there, but they're fun to catch through the ice! And yes, there is a muskie or two in there as well. Never caught a cat though...

On the subject, Yes there are crappies in there if you can find them. There is also some real nice perch in there.

I was out scouting the area. Looks like there's a ton of weed growth all around the edge of the lake.

BigStevie, we gotta get back together sometime and hit Johanna like you were talking about.

Lost, if you truely are interested in bending a stick and size is not an issue. Try spoon lake in Maplewood. You can catch them by the hundreds and I have never ever seen one over 7"...
