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.

      I have heard much of the same from friends that have been in there recently. They say the lake trout fishing is the best it has been in a long time and once everyone gets their trout the walleye fishing is awesome too! Great to hear!

      Fishing Vermilion has been slow for me. I have a couple friends here, one of whom grew up with a cabin on Trout, before the BWCA, that we visited as youngsters. We fish it every year looking for walleye but usually only catch bass. Today, in the rain, I had the absolute best walleye fishing ever. I have caught a 28” on Vermilion, but today caught my (larger) limit including 27”, 26”, a couple 24”s,etc. Beautiful fish- dark bronze with red/gold fins, The other guys did well, too. We were throwing back 15” fish. Great day. I sound like I’m bragging and maybe am, but Trout is back as a walleye lake. Leeches today, slooow drift with a Lundy rig, 14-20’ off points.  I’m 68. Best walleye fishing of my life- so far. Only regret is the red lab had to stay home. Boat is too small. RLG

      We have pretty good bass fishin’ in MN.  19 is a good one. 😎

      Anyone get out this weekend and care to share how fishing was? Will be heading Up tomorrow after work for a week at the lake. 
    • fins_n'_feathers
      The service up there is very spotty at best. I have AT&T and have a place in Sand Bay. At the cabin there is hardly any service and what there is usually comes from Canada. That being said a mile down the road it’s 4 bars of LTE. I can’t say exactly how service is at Island View but when we fish in Black Bay right around the corner there’s pretty good service. About as good as it gets on the lake. The farther East you go the worse it gets and fast.

      Someday I'll get a big one. 😆 I did pull a 19" Largemouth out of Weaver lake last year. The largest bass I've ever caught.

      Earliest memory for me was age 3 on the bank of the Miss with a cane pole.  Been through many cycles of “evolution”, if you will, including fishing tournament circuits.  That’s well behind me now since I fish to just enjoy it for what it is and where it takes me.  I’m drawn to water.   My most recent cycle has me chasing muskies a bit like @gimruis  They’re some freaky fish.  I just spent a week chasing them in Canada and witnessed some memorable encounters that made my hands shake and knees knock without even catching the fish that I saw!     Aside from the fish, there’s the deer that swim across the lake, the sow bear and cubs that huff/wheeze when you get too close and the loons that swim around the boat while you’re casting or make their chilling calls to their mates when they’re only 50 feet away.  Good long days on the water working in synch with a good partner, short but restful nights of sleep, and occasionally forgetting what day it is.   It’s a game that wakes up my senses and makes me feel whole.

      If nothing else, it’s a great excuse to get out of the house and go for an adventure! Bought what looks to be a very comprehensive book on the subject, quite a bit more to identification than I imagined. Nothing wrong with Spam😀

      We will be on Rainy Lake in the Island View area in a few weeks, coming up from Missouri. I have an iPhone and iPad with AT&T 4G cellular data and calling. How disappointed am I going to be in reception and especially the ability to use my Navionics charts up there?  Suggestions?  TIA

      Don't forget to bring the Spam. Germans love it! 🙂
