Anyone fish spider lake near South Center?


Recommended Posts

Just got back from the lake. A buddy and I went out as we have always said we should try it for fun, and something different.

We drove out across the main lake and out to the second part of the lake in about 8 feet of water.

Nothing much going on out there, we did get a couple of bullhead and a really small crappie.

Anyone else ever fish this lake with any success?

Years ago, or so the story goes, the DNR used it as a walleye rearing pond. I know I ice fished it 5 or so years ago and did pretty well on small walleye.. But word got out, and it got hit really hard, as you said, not much left in it but small gills and crappie. I have fished it a few time in the summer thinking it looks like a good bass lake, however, cant remember ever catching a bass in it.

Thanks Dietz!

I have been hearing the same thing that you just said. Used to be a great lake until it was fished hard a few years back.

Oh well can't ever find out unless you try I guess. To my next lake/spot to try.

Early Ice this year Frankies put out word to everyone who came into his shop that it was a rearing pond and people were pulling out big eyes.. Someone let out word and the next time i was out there there must have been 20 shacks around that 8' hole on the weedline.. Fishing was really good early this year with BIG Eyes coming out then Frankies screwed it up good.. No fish left after about 3 weeks of being hammered..

Too bad, it was a fun lake with the opportunity for a monster walleye.

I heard it was Mikes bait who spilled the beans. At any rate just a bunch of small crappies and sunnies left and when you think you got an eye it's a bullhead!

Tried it three times early ice.

Used to fish it in back in high school...one of those rare lakes south of the BWCA where you could go out and catch 100 walleyes in a day. Yeah size wasn't great, but it was a fun time.

I used to go out there and slay them. Minimum of twenty a day, even on a bad day! but word got out bad last year. I used to fish it when there would only be one or two guys out there. Last year there was 10 to 15 perms and double the portables. its just way to small of a lake for that much pressure. This year in two trips caught one walleye. I was and still am extremely upset that my honey hole was gone Wish more people would catch and release. That was one lake that you could go out there and hammer them, and I caught some real pigs. But oh well nothing i can do.

I am a catch and release only guy. I just don't like cleaning fish, and my girlfriend won't eat them.

Nope never fished it. Thought about it but never have. Dang though that someone has one that looks like mine. I might need different wheels now! HAHA.

I will be out on Forest this weekend with it though.

Made it out to the lake yesterday for #$%@s & giggles, spent a couple hours popping holes and dropping the camera in.

Not a fish in sight! There appears to be only 3 permanent shacks left, one is accompanied by what looks like a pool table, pretty much a ghost town now. Was pretty neat being all alone on a lake for once, just wish there were fish!

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
