The name is Longyear Lake. I do know of some nice walleyes that came out of there a few summers back. There are standing weeds in the summer on the southern side of the lake (main street breaks the lake in two) and there was a deep hole (19 feet or so) next to it. They were pulling out 2+ pound eyes out of it. The guy said it was his best fishing that summer and while fishing had his hat tipped down over his face since he is a main-street merchant and was a bit embarrassed to be out there. Anyway, give it a shot since there are some nice eyes in there. I have heard of shore fishermen (soft water of course) catch them by the main culvert that connects the 2 sections under the road.

Enjoy, and good luck.

Northern Dirt...Don't let the secret out of the bag!!! Personally I believe the state should designate Chisholm lakes open fishing for kids only. I see to many greedy grown-ups taking way to many fish out of there.

I for one fish this every year with my dad he is 70 years old and he has taken his fair share of walleyes out of this lake. As for eyes in the winter the permanent fish houses are out there for people to party in. I have drilled enough holes in this lake for 2 each of the residents of Chisholm. Walleyes Caught 00000000 northerns 100.

I've noticed that also, many folks not doing so hot in the winter. I tip-up fished both lakes when I was in high school and had fun with the pike, but never jigged for walleyes. I use to fish with an old timer off the dock and off shore while I would wait for my mom to get off work (was borrowing her vehicle) when she worked in Chisholm. Did very well a few times, let all the fish over 3 pounds go. If I had enough time I would go over to Kinney pit for some rainbows.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.

      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.
