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.

      What a difference a couple of warmer days make.  I had great snowmobile travel conditions on Burntside on Tuesday.
    • JerkinLips
      I know it was not Vermilion but I was on Burntside Sunday-Wednesday and found the travel conditions great with the snowmobile.  Had 30" of ice, but the top 10-12" was white and there was a 1" water layer under 2" of top white ice.  The top was softening up when we left Wednesday afternoon.  The bottom 2' of ice was nice and clear, so it will be solid for a while.  If they get cold weather up there for a few days, the lakes could be very good traveling for most vehicles since the deep snow has flattened and most of the water on top has drained or evaporated.  If it gets cold, I may be back up on Burntside for the end of March.

      Can someone please post pics and or videos of the Minnesota State Record Lake Sturgeon caught by @DTro. The story about the aftermath would be cool too.   How is the St. Croix River looking? Anyone out fishing it?   Fishing reports please?
    • paceman
      I have not seen any, but I am not out in the country much yet. I need the snow to drop quite aways before I can get back to most of my spots.

      Spring is no slouch for activities though! Here’s a list of (fun) possibilities for even this weekend:   Sapping Shooting - rifle range Shed hunting  Still enough ice to fish through Some open water to cast to Still ‘Nuff night light yet for yotes  Scout for turkeys Snow goose season is open too   It’s too bad though I have to include some other stuff for the weekend:   Helping move someone Taxes Annual files cleaning HVAC maintenance  Some catching up at work Snow plow repair/maintenance   At least I can count on getting stuff from BOTH sides accomplished!

      I ran into a couple guys at the gas station when getting minnows today and we started chatting about this.For access to these lakes without an inspection they said this is what you want to do-Have someone who isnt going fishing come with you and launch your boat they drive away with truck and trailer and come pick you up later.Not a great option for all but if you live nearby the restricted lakes they said this works.I like their style

      March 21 - saw my first goldeneyes of the spring migration tonight.  They were cruising south so I imagine they were scouting further north but didn’t find the water they were looking for.   There are spots open on the river but not much around Little Falls yet.  Judging by the looks of the ice though I’ll be seeing open water by Sunday.  
    • Rick
      Any fishing reports?   With this warmer weather, has anyone been out?   What are the ice conditions in the Bemidji area?
