Blue Lake Nashwauk,MN (Another Spring found)

Recommended Posts

RangeFishing

Was cruising the shorelines yesterday looking for new potential fishing holes when I felt the rear tire hit something, which I thought funny because I was driving straight. Hopped out to check on it and there was water. Grabbed a shovel to see if I just popped through some slush and sure enough there was no layer of ice below and as soon as I moved the ice chunks the bubbles were visible coming to the surface.

This spot is on the east shore after ya go through the first "straight". I was hugging the submerged tree line. There is a white and red ice house just before the spot. Most of you who fish the lake wont have to worry about this as most just stick to the main ice roads. Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone who cruises the shores that there are springs popping up out there this year with this weird weather!

On a side note we measured 20 inches of ice in the first bay on the west side of the lake and about 16 in the community hole in the far back through the last straight.

What's with that lake? I'd be darn careful out there.

My uncle is retired but use to work with DNR in rapids. When i first moved to the iron range he told me that the whole Blue Lake basin has a limestone aquifer under it and is slowly sinking. I know the mines flooded the area back in the '80s I believe, but i have a feeling because of the aquifer there are springs everywhere that just randomly open up. I picked up a GPS yesterday so I think anytime I find one I will get the coordinates to post so others can avoid them!

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before

      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor

      Even serious anglers get seriously lonely. Fished too many metro lakes and beyond to count. Fishing has always Kept me sane and sober, its what I and I do it well. Recently moved, wondering if there's anyone out there who might wanna swap some tips, tricks, and hopefully some big ones. Not very good at this kind of stuff but hey, what do I got to lose by asking?!  Thanks, M.E.

      Loved across the street from it for years, on timbershore lane. I've caught monsters, several shore spots if you know where to findem. I just moved to inver grove heights and am looking for someone (or more!) To go back asap and catch some whoppers

      I've ice fished it a few times, this year actually. It's unnamed crappies and northerns, it's true it's private land but I've never had any trouble, guys in the buildings parking lot always waved to me.
