Where can I go this weekend in search of some trout. It is my buddys birthday and he wants to catch some trout. Any information would be greatly appreciated. We will be staying on turtle lake in marcell, mn but willing to drive. Thanks.

Labatts,

As long as you're going to be in the Marcell area, try Kremer Lake or Caribou Lake. They're right next to the highway and have some decent fish in them.

Ditto on Caribou. I fished there last Sat. and caught two nice lakers. I was using airplane jigs tipped with a minnow. You will have to drag you house down the road to the boat launch because they have the access gate closed. I used a snowmobile to drag my house.

Doc,
Were you straight off the access heading towards the other side of the lake about 1/2 way out? I was out there last year bouncing a sweedish pimple with a little trout power bait right on the bottom about 5o ft and picked up a really nice Laker. Best eating fish I ever caught!!

Went to Caribou on Sun. Pretty dead. The house next to me caught a 2.5lb laker in 18ft of water! We both ended up moving into the 50ft range though after not seeing anything else for several hours. Didn't help much cause we still didn't see anything. Oh well, it was still fun!

Kokan, Yes I did start out straight out from the access. That was me strugling with the auger for 10 min before I figured out the throttle plate was frozen! I worked across the lake and caught the fish in the corner next to the far point. Have you done well there in the past?

Doc,
Is the far point you are referring to, on the North side of the lake? I really have not fished that side much. The one time I did, I didn't even see any. Sounds like I may have to try it again though. I usually head strait out from the access and a little left about midway. There is a bar that runs around 40-50 ft parallell to the access shoreline. I usually fish there and have done well in the past (one or two 2-3 lb)Yes, that is a good day for me!

P.S.
The laker I referred to above that was caught in 18ft of water was on the south end near the tree structure sticking out of the ice.

I did not actually look at the fish. but that could be a really good possibility. I have caught more Splake out of that lake than anything. But usually deeper than that. If I see that guy out there again, I will ask him.

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.
    • Mike89
      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".   
    • Borch
      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket

      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
