big spunk lake

Recommended Posts

bbrad24

Hello all. I moved to the st cloud area this summer and just bought my first portable shack and hand auger. I'm pretty excited to try some of the local lakes to try and catch a meal of fish.

I've heard people at work mention the spunk lakes being decent in the summer time. I was wondering if anyone has been out there in the last couple weeks? What are the ice conditions? Driveable? How is the panfish/walleye bite?

Thanks and good luck to those who help me out.

First off...welcome! Lots of good folks and info flying around here.

Upper is a bustling city right now. The ice is good and full size trucks are driving all over it. There is a good packed road right off of the boat ramp that heads out towards the grass island. The road splits and ends up in spots on the north side and south side of the grass island. I have a 2wd pickup and can get around fine on the roads out there, but there are some spots where the snow drifts could get you stuck if you venture off the roads too far. I've been hopping around out there for the last couple of weeks and have found some good spots where I've got some decent crappies. Check out a map of the lake on the DNR site and you'll see there is plenty of structure and depth changes that look like good spots for fish. I have also picked up a couple of walleyes out there, but it's been fairly slow for me for the eyes. Shoot me an email at bryanjbennatgmaildotcom if you might want to meet up out there. I plan on heading out again this coming weekend.

      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

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
