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-

      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.

      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
    • Bigfatbert
      Yup !!   Also note the new one over change to 26”... it’s currently 28” 18”-26 must be immediately released , and one walleye over 26” may be included daily and possession. Kab , Namakan, Sand Point , Crane . These changes start on the 2019 opener .

      So after the 8” of snow the other day the lakes are a huge mess. I was out for a snowmobile ride yesterday and went to a lake not to far from home. I like to ride out there a couple times a week. So I made a loop around the lake and the snow was about knee deep but had no issues. I was just about ready to head home and checked out an area I like to fish. Well.... I jumped a plowed road bank and sink in about 1 foot of water and slush. I pinned my sled and barley crawled along about 50 years to dry snow. So my weekend plans of fishing are done. This was a smaller lake so I’m sure all lakes are impassable. I have what I think id a good ice fishing sled. A Polaris 600 with a 136” track never had an issue before but with all the snow and slush now there’s no way I’ll be able to fish. The snowmobile trails haven’t beeen grommed after the last snow and I’m getting sick of riding the ditches. Anyone else annoyed with all this snow now? Thanks Mother Nature I now have nothing to do this weekend! 😥

      Way to let "Quasimoto" go and perpetuate his/her goofy genes...  If I catch a bunch of funny-looking, humpy 13.5 inchers in the future, I'm blaming you! 😁  (...as opposed to the scrawny 9 inchers I'm lucky to catch...) Poor thing looks like it's gonna get stuck in the ice-hole!

      I usually keep my sonar unit in the house because I put it on the charger every time I get home. Just for fun, the next time it does it, I might try just warming up the transducer and sending it back down the hole to see what happens. Thanks.
    • BobT
      I didn't think of that! Probably should have glanced down the hole, eh?

      Just another reminder that walleye/pike season ends on Sunday too for inland waters.  Don't get caught targeting the wrong species of fish next week.

      New 2019 Regulations are out showing a slot increase from 17" to 18"!!
