fishing near St. Cloud

I have only fished the st. cloud area for 2 summers. I have fished horseshoe chain, grand, briggs/julia/rush chain with some success. I still don't know these lakes very well. Are there any big pike in the area beside Mille lacs. I know briggs and rush have decent walleye but have never tried for walleye in these 2 lakes. What time of year and techniques are good for these lakes. Thanks AJ

Andy, I know of a couple of lakes around Mille Lacs that do usually produce nice northerns above 5 lbs, but chances of catching one over 20 probably are not as great as on Mille Lacs, but 5-15lbs are common. Send me an email, and I will let you know. Up North Redneck [email protected]

I would agree with Koronis and the Horseshoe Chain. There are some real pigs in there. Catch them, take a pic and put them back. Another lake SE of St.Cloud that has some real nice pike is Big Lake. I've caught more big pike there than anywhere. I don't know why, but they're there.

The spearers have no trouble finding those big Pike in the winter on the local lakes, but in the summer it can be difficult. First, it is already getting pretty late to find those big northern in the shallows. Most of the summer those big fish are in the deep cool water and not very aggressive. Koronis, the Horseshoe Chain and Rice are a couple lakes that put out some dandy's. However, they are big for a reason. ScottS

Fished a small lake by Mille Lacs, caught 53 northerns and 5 largemouth bass for 3 people in one day. Only keep our 9 northerns. The pike ran from 2-7 pounds, no real monsters, but lots of fun.

AJ,
You may want to give Clearwater Lake near St. Cloud a try. A relatively large body of water, over 3 thousand acres with tons of structure and a healthy population of pike. I have caught dozens of fish between 8-10 lbs but no monsters. BJ's Bait has an annual pike tournament in the fall, you could check with them regarding the results.
