Why so many snakes in Spirit Lake

That's mostly what I find when at the Cab.

Take a look at the lake- I heard that walleye stocking is a tough issue here. Could lakers survive?

how deep is the lake NS. How many pike did you catch. I would rather catch pike than anything else because the put up the best fight on a jigging rod.

The pike range from tiny to not big. 12" to low 20's. I know there are some bruisers in there but we always hook into the hammerhandles while crappie fishing. Spirit is one of the clearest lakes I've seen. It has a 70' or so hole and a fairly large deep basin. Tough lake to fish but it has some nice ones in it. 17" crappies and jumbos to go along with the walleyes. I've put alot of time in on this lake. They come along now and then. We shoot out from the cabin, Otherwise the access is on a channel. I don't think I'd use it in the winter. Faster water- I don't know though. I'll check it out this weekend. Or you could call Farm Island store. -NS-

with a 70 ft hole i think if the dnr took a look at the oxygen and water clarity levels lakers should be able to survive

It's not a numbers lake, It's a lake with good fish if put the time into it. Get's old though.

The 17"er came two years ago! -NS-

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.
