Info on Star Lake @ the end of August, please

Recommended Posts

stoneeyes317

Hello all:

I know this is a bit early, but I am fortunate enough to be able once again to visit the Ottertail area, and Star specifically, from 8/23 -8/30. We are going to be staying @ Eberts, a GREAT place to stay, and Jim there put me on some nice crappies 2 years ago. I am O.K. there, but was wondering if anyone could shed some light on walleyes and northerns for me. I'd even take some tips for bass. I will be out with my wife, who likes to bobber fish, some of the time, but I will get out on my own some as well. I would like to concentrate on live bait rigging, or jigging, which is something I've just begun to do. My dad always took me to Rush Lake as a kid, and all we did was drag spinners and minnows around...

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, and I would be willing to trade my crappie spots/info.

Stoneeyes317,
Late Aug. on Star can be a challenge to be sure. I'll give you an update later on. You should have a good nightime crankbait bite, provided you bring along 10 gallons of Deet! email me at [email protected] for more info. Do you have access to a GPS unit? Let the anticipation build! Kent

Look for an email about Thursday evening or Friday afternoon. And yes, I have a GPS, a Garmin Etrex.

Stoneeyes317,

My girlfriends parents have a trailer at Star and I'm heading up in a few days for a week of fishing. I'm fine on the walleye and northern in the lake, but haven't really gotten into the crappies. I would love to trade some tips with you. Shoot me an email at [email protected] and we can trade some tips if you'd like. I will also be up there a week before you in August and should be able to give you some updated info. You're right, Ebert's is a great resort with an awesome beach.

Sorry it has taken me so long to post back; our server was down, for us anyway, from Fri. until last night. I will be emailing you in a couple of days. I am also going to post some general questions in the crappie/sunfish forum. You might want to take a look there as well...

Check the "midday crappies" post in the Sunfish/Crappie forum if you want some crappie info...

Stoneeyes,

I just got back this afternoon. The walleyes are really slow up there right now. I'll look for your email soon.

I tried to email you Sat. evening, but it was sent back to me as undeliverable...

[email protected] is right, isn't it??
My email is [email protected]; it might work better if you email me first???

Also, I noticed from your profile that you live in Faribault; so do I.

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?
    • jkrash
      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. 😒
    • osok
      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.....
    • Wanderer
      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.
    • Borch
      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)
