Medicine Lake Help

Recommended Posts

STLCardsFan

Myself and two friends from the St. Louis Area will be visiting a friend in Burnsville next week, and we are Jonesing for walleye action. We are bringing the families but have one day for the guys to go fishing. Unfortunately, it is up to me to figure out where to go, and the relatively close proximity of Medicine to Burnsville and the positive fishing posts seem to make it an ideal place to go. No one has a boat, so can anyone turn me on to rentals? For the record, fishing is my lifelong passion and conservation is my avocation. HELP!

I agree on the rentals but if you are jonesing for some waldo action I would suggest another lake. Sure there are some eyes and you may pick one up here or there but a walleye hotspot it is not. I fish the lake a ton and only target eyes once in a while but in the last couple years I have only seen 3 and caught one. Good luck if ya get out on Med. I would suggest tonka for walleyes.

Thanks so much Magnet and Moby. Is there another lake of reasonable size that anyone could recommend? My track record is pretty poor as a first timer on an enormous lake.

Or you could take a 30 minute drive south and try French Lake near Faribault. There's a little of everything in that lake (muskies, walleyes, panfish). If you are interested shoot me an e-mail and I'll send you some info.

Or a guide on the St. Croix would treat you well.

      If ever a person wanted to accelerate their learning curve on Osakis, this would be a good time to do it! I’ll try to keep it open but I never know what’s going to happen with the kids wedding coming up - at our house - in September. Thanks for putting this on Borch. 😎

      I haven’t fished it but would use chubs like you mentioned if I did. Good luck ozzie.

      Does anyone know where I can rent and/or use a paddle board on Vermilion? Thanks!

      We fished the small lake a few week back the water was really high. No luck with bass around the pads tried Texas rigged worms and spinner baits, we did find crappies in 8-10" around Lilly pads and reeds crappies were caught on panfish leaches and small glow jigs.

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

      A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you.
