My stepbrother has a cabin on this lake, he has never icefished and wants me to come down that way sometime, I know nothing of this lake. Can anyone share any when's, where's, how's of the ice bite on this lake? Any maps online? Thanks much for any info.

fiskynut -

There is a map of the lake on the DNR website. I have never fished it myself. If you come down, make sure you try and get over to Ottertail for some nice perch/walleye fishing.

Fisky,
What species do you and your pal want to catch? You might be able to catch a few walleyes, but crappies/sunfish are easier to get a meal of on Star right now. I'd be happy to give you some info, as long as you'll report back to us how you did! I've been fishing Star for about 15 years, mostly on ice.

Bowslay, If you're looking for "inside info" regarding crappie and 'gill action on Star, How about sharing some of that walleye wisdom you have? How deep are you getting those 'eyes on Star before dark, how many keepers per trip, are you on shoreline structure, or on a hump? I'm happy to trade info for info!!

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
