Pleasant Lake

Recommended Posts

anyfishaldo

Any one know of a public access? Looked and the DNR site and did not see an access but there seemed to be a park somewhere on the south side.

Do you mean Pleasant lake in North Oaks?

If so, that lake is closed for fishing along with adjacent Charlie lake. DNR uses it for a source of fish and St. Paul uses it for water.

Can't fish that lake, well actually I heard you can but you will need to be air lifted in there(Not sure if it's a rumor or not). All private property. North Oaks doesn't appreciate fisherman/women trespassing. It would be great to get out there though, there's gotta be some monsters in there

I do have plenty of warm white clothes for 'yote hunting, it'd be impossible to see a guy out in the middle of the lake at night....

And a white shack? It's crossed my mind to go stealth.

Bring a hand auger, cuz a power auger would be a little noticable.

There are huge fish in there... I tried to ice fish it a few years ago by hiding under a bridge over a creek running out of it. After augering through the ice, I realized I was only in about 1 foot of water.... didn't have any luck obviously

I will tell you guys that I snuck in and fished it when I was in high school. I fish by the mouth of creek that wyochris was talking about. I used only a daredevil spoon and I caught 20 inch smallies, trophy walleyes, white bass, muskies, northern, and even 14 crappies. But I wouldn't do it today, aint worth the jail time. Its a great lake, but is it worth jail time. smile

Does anyone know the penalties for the the midnight stealth run? If it were cheaper than a trip to canada it's maybe worth it

I guess I do not know the specific penalty because this lake sounds like it might have its own little set of massive fine generating regs...... but, The one time I did have to deal with a trespassing ticket it was at least 500$ (remember the old cedar lake bridge over the MN river? Think twice before you climb on that one).I believe it's a misdomeaner (sp?) to boot. I fortunately was able to get them to drop that ticket, but it took a bit of work in court! Not sure that is worth some fish, but when someone tells you you can't fish there, it becomes real hard not to. Is the lake posted all over with signs? I'm wondering if you just wandered out onto the lake and pleaded stupidity if they caught you. If you go stealth but do happen to get caught..... well there is no arguing out of that and it might make it worse.

Sounds like a neat place to fish though! I think I would have a scheme if I lived in that neck of the woods.

At least wait for a heavy snow or near blizzard so the visability is poor from any distance away.

If someone were to make a midnight stealth run, do you plan on using a lantern? I think that'd be a little visible from shore.

snuck in ther years ago also many of times fishing was great but tresspassing ticket and getting truck towed and impounded was pretty spendy. they can also take your license for awhile if they want to. not worth it

It isn't worth looking over your shoulder waiting for the cops to show up. And they will mind you. There's no one more paraniod than rich people. Especially when your in "their" neighborhood.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!
    • Chetta09
      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds. 
    • mrpike1973
      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.

      Get a set of choppers to put over your nice gloves.  I throw choppers over my regular gloves when the bite gets slow.  Works like a charm.
