Where to go this weekend

Recommended Posts

mrklean

Im coming up to the St cloud area this weekend and am taking my g/f out fishing, since graduating i havent fished up there since last winter. What a decent lake to at least keep her entertained for a few hours. I always fished pearl, grand, little rock and a little bit of pleasant when i was up there. I dont think i would go to the chain though.

Something against the chain? Heck of a multi species destination. Not that there is anything wrong with grand , pearl, and pleasant if you like catching tater chip size panfish and tiny northerns lol. Just kidding they can be good lakes. They are getting a few fish on pleasant down in the second group of houses farthest from the access.

I guess I just Jim'd ya, check out the thread in this forum about Camp Lake! I was waiting for a HA HA pink. Although the jury is still out on it. Also, if you are fishing around St. Cloud, from what I read elsewhere, it is mountain lion area so be alert wink

If you looking for action Rice is hard to beat right now for crappies. Size is tough to come by but she'll be setting the hook alot.

I have to agree with you Borch. LOTS of little fish so if you want action, it's a pretty good bet. Lots of traffic out there though. Was out Sat night overnight and pulled in some (all under 10" one that was 12"). Eyes were quiet. Rattle wheels didn't ring at all. Fishing in 20 fow. Their were a lot of guys moving their houses the next morning.

I read the post for camp lake and it sounded like I shouldn't even waist my time. And then I talked to my buddy and he had said that they do pretty well when they go there. Nice size crappies and eyes when there biting.

      Any updates as to the slush conditions on Vermilion, particularly off the staked trails?  
    • smurfy
      i keep hearing that this slush wont freeze up. i just cant fathom that with the low temps forecasted it wont?????????   anyone else with thoughts????
    • arctic_scrap1
      Yeah I tried the wrench yesterday. I Can't get it to move with a load on it. With no load on the jack it does go up and down with the electric motor though. I ended up ordering a whole new jack since they're only $200. This one I'll take apart and try to fix it and keep it as a spare.

      Was out checking ice.....on west side....even though there is good ice closer to shore, when neighbor was trying to plow a road out farther, a lot of water was coming out of a crack. Please do not go out with a larger truck!!!!!

      I'm also thinking about going up this weekend. We were thinking about Barnacles or Red Door. It will be our first time out of either resorts. Any recommendation or opinions about the resorts and their roads? Thanks in advance!

      Thank you.. and thanks for the advise on the Duluth forum! I will look that up and subscribe.
    • JohnnyM
      Thanks for your response! Sounds like fishing is pretty much the same on this end as Ontonagon. Aside from the rock reefs and possibility of snags on the bottom. I don't run lead core but have a pair of downriggers and some dipsies. I fish a lot on the surface with my Otter Boats with Rapalas and some spoons. I always run at least one dodger or flasher in the mix with a Howie's fly or a spin n glo behind it. Thanks again for your input! I appreciate it! Hopefully I can have a good weekend fishing!

      Glad your back Bryan! So far my season hasn't been one for the books but it haven’t been horrible. I’ve been waiting for your videos good to see your back man!
    • JohnnyM
      Thanks for the input!  I definitely don't want to snag one of my rigger weights! I have otter boats I run off a mast on both side of the boat. I run surface spoons and stick baits off the lines. Works well out of Ontonagon and sounds like it will work here also. I have a few dipsies also but do not have lead core on any of my set ups. I run a flasher or dodger on one of my lines also. Usually on one of my dipsies. I pretty much sounds like fishing off Ontonagon except for the snags on the bottom of the north shore. Thanks for your wisdom! I appreciate it!

      I drove by the lake this weekend and saw a large amount of vehicles and houses out there.  We are finding the crappies either out deep in the holes suspended or they are hugging weeds.  I know huge difference but don't be afraid to go shallow or deep.  I wasn't too far from Crystal fishing 6 feet of water Saturday fishing cabbage and getting a mixed bag of panfish, pike, and bass coming through.
