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.

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.

      Any smallmouth reports?

      Well I went out Sunday of opening weekend. Ugh. I felt like I was hunting the Congo! So darn hot and buggy. Thank god for thermacell! I did pass on a small 3 pt. It was fun to watch him, he was making rubs on trees all over around me. I'm actually glad nothing else came out, dealing with it in that heat would have taken a lot of fun out of the process.

      i've been up on Sandpoint a number of times that late in the year. I always focused on main lake drop off. especially sand if you can find it. Walleyes, big crappies and smallmouth will all be congregated in those areas. One spot I fished dropped off into 70 feet. I usually fished 20-30 ' depths oh, I should mention. Usually we used lindy rigs with minnows. Jigs did work too. especially if you slowly drop it and feel the strike on the fall. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.
    • gimruis
      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale
