Pleasant Lake

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

It would be kinda fun to sneak on in the middle of the night somehow when its really dark and fish an hour or two and see what ya get and sneak back off.

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.

I was just kidding btw. I think it's ridiculous that the lake is posted, but i think when you intentionally disobey laws, it gives fishermen in general a bad name.

There are a couple of small lakes connected to Pleasant by some channels. Does any know if these lakes are off limits as well?

Looks like there is even a small access, but its not clear if this is a private or public launch.

All the lakes in north oaks are either off limits or have special regs. Pleasant is completely closed, vadnais is only open to shore fishing, charlie is off limits, sucker is shore only, and there's one other that's off limits.

I used to go to school up there and I had some buddies fish it a couple of times. The first time at night they swear they got chased out by a helicopter (Supposedly they have some infrared system set up). Second time during the day the cops showed up and they tried to play dumb. They ended up with just a warning, but the cops were less than thrilled. Neither time did they made it more than 10-15 minutes before someone showed up.

Oh, and by the way they said were reeling in 4-6 pound walleyes almost every cast before they got caught...

Urban Legends??? Not sure, not finding out...

      I agree with you. But you will definitely need better components to set up an Rl craft hosting service. First of all, you will need the latest version of Forge. For hosting rlcraft requires these details  .  Furthermore, hosting a server also requires 3 to 4GB of RAM.

      On the south end...  Walleyes are starting to stack up in various areas of the south shore with some good fall fishing taking place.  Most anchored up jigging with fatheads and frozen shiners.   Various techniques are still proving effective in catching, but as water temps cool, jigging will be the desire of walleyes and has been successful this past week.   Trolling crankbaits is still catching fish.  If you are struggling catching the fish you are jigging or the fish are spread out, try pulling cranks which will put your lure in front of many fish in which you only need a taker here and there for a successful day. Good numbers of fish are still being caught pulling spinners, especially over flats or on the outside of structure.  On the Rainy River...   Some very good reports on the Rainy River this week.  Shiners are in the river and so are the walleyes.  Is this the big run, not sure, but most are catching fish, and some big ones.   Anglers report nice fish both in Four Mile Bay and the river, but these fish are moving around.  Try different spots until you find them.  Look for clouds of emerald shiners, they show up nicely on most sonar.   This is the fall run and it should only get better.  These river fish are moving, once you find them, it can be a memorable day.  Looking for fish, trying different spots can be helpful in finding fish.  Anchoring up in the same spot all day hoping the fish come through can make for a tough day.     Jigging with a frozen shiner or trolling cranks in the river are both catching walleyes. Sturgeon activity continues to pick up as water cools.  Most fishing the holes of the river.  A 3 - 4 ounce weight with lower current has been sufficient combined with a sturgeon rig loaded with crawlers or crawlers and frozen shiners. Fall is a great time to take your own boat on the small waters of the Rainy River.  Boat ramps scattered from Wheeler's Point to Baudette east to Birchdale.  Up at the NW Angle...  Walleye fishing stays consistently very good up at the Angle.  Walleyes are being caught using the three techniques mentioned above.  Some fishing MN waters, others venturing amongst the Ontario side of the lake.  Good fish being caught on both sides.   In addition to fish still over deep mud, traditional structure is also holding walleyes.  Points, rock islands, sunken islands, neck down areas, etc.   Some nice muskies were caught this week.  October is traditionally a great month with trolling shorelines in the mix of techniques.   The government of Canada has officially announced they are lifting the COVID vaccination requirement and is allowing the ArriveCan app to be optional starting October 1, 2022.  This will make the drive to the NW Angle for many, which includes about 40 miles through Canada, once again possible.
