Haven't fished it in a couple of years but use to spend my every summer up there until I was 18. Wanted to know if you can still catch some pretty nice panny's up there? I'm heading down there in a couple of weeks... I have my own spot to fish away from the crowds between the rushes and the island for crappies but, any good idea for ice sunny's would be appreciated.

Thanks and good fishing!

Not many people know that name for the lake...i have been on it for 30 years, no sunnies in the winter yet. i like looking for the walleyes and keeping up with the crappies keeps me busy too. i assume the reeds you are talking about are off the "point" of isle of pines??

yeh, to the north of the island there is almost like a sunken island.... long rushes and pencil weeds in the summer. Most of the cars an people that ice fish that lake congregate right there in the deep water between them. This is a good spot and fish can certainly be caught there but I usually have better success finding them off on my own. Plus once you find them they seem to stay in the area since there is no noise. I have never went out and actually targeted the walleyes however, I caught a 6 plus pounder there fishing for crappies in 2000. Was a lot of fun, he still is swimming so hopefully the lake will reproduce. My dad said back in the late 50's and 60's they would catch them pretty regular... Probably what happened to the lake. Anyway, I haven't caught the blue's there in the winter either, think I'm going to try and target them when I go....

Thanks for the response...

we caught and released a 25.5 inch eye the new years day off the west side of east side of church. all the walleyes being caught are big, unfortunatly most are being eaten.

Maybe we are talking about a different lake after all... No Church on the lake I'm talking about. Unless thats a reference to something else or there is a new one that has been built up there in the past few years. The one I'm referng to is off of HWY 47 for the public access however, you can also get to the lake by taking Red Indian Road.

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar for channels. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.
