St.Cloud Area Fishing Report??

Recommended Posts

Sartell Angler

I was just wondering why there is such little imput with regard to the fishing in the St. Cloud Area. Has anyone been catching any crappies / northerns around here?? I was out on Upper Spunk Lake monday afternoon and managed to catch a few nice pike and bass. I sure would appreciate any hints.

thanks in advance,

S.A.

SA, unfortuately I have nothing to report. With the water conditions as they are on most lakes, Green & Gross, I have been avoiding my tradional spots. I did drive by Upper Spunk this weekend on the way to Big Birch and thought I should get out there and give it a try. But, do to other engagements I wasn't able to get on the water at all this weekend. I know Duck-o-holic did real well on Big Birch, which has excellent water quality. I will post again Monday, as I will be trying a few local lakes on Sunday. ScottS

I'm thinking about heading over to Koronis to pull cranks in the evening as it's getting to be that time of year. Anyone been on Koronis lately and has the evening bite started up yet?

Borch, we're fishing a Bass Club T Saturday on Koronis. Plans fell through on fishing it Friday night. If you could post water temps, it would be greatly appreciated.

JoJo,

Water temps ranged from 75.7 - 80.2 but most of the water we cover was around 78 degrees. The water has some color to it and weed growth is down from most years. Walleye fishing was slow with just a couple small ones.

Good Luck!

Hey everyone, just got back from Big Birch -- got a slow start and didn't get on the water til' 9:30. Managed to catch some decent sunnies, a 14 1/2 inch walleye, a couple northerns, a few largemouth, a smallmouth, a rock bass, and several perch. Talk about variety! It was my first time fishing the lake, but i'll definitely be back. That is about the best fishing i can get this time of year -- the river is really slow and the lakes near avon are all green.

With the tournament Saturday and the rain Sunday AM, I did not make it to Big Birch so I went to Pelican Lake in St.Anna. I caught quite a few nice gills and a few large mouth, although I did not fish for them much. It was nice to get out and enjoy the day, although the wind really picked up in the afternoon and made boat handeling a little tricky.ScottS

I have not perosally been out on the Horseshoe Chain for quite some time but I know the panfish bite is going pretty good. Both Horseshoe and Scheider have been producing good numbers of fish. Look to the shallower flats near deep drops,10-14 ft of water.ScottS

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
    • ozzie
      Sounds good!  I won't be up this weekend but in the future I will look for ya!  I am in a couple different boats but a Lund Tyee is what I would be in most often with a 200 merc on the back.
    • Hoey
      Not to mention that some of these boats had doubles on the biggies, so they could select the heaviest or caught another biggie after tagging one.  Our boat did not get a biggie.  We had over 24 slots for the day, our biggest was 25".

      Women can hike to spectacular views of autumn colors and Lake Superior on the horizon during a three-day fall workshop that teaches a variety of outdoor skills through the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Getting to that view includes 330 feet of elevation gain on the Superior Hiking Trail – the kind of physical and mental challenge known well to Jo Swanson, trail development director for the Superior Hiking Trail Association and the keynote speaker for the fall workshop. “One of my themes is empowerment – learning to overcome fears of adventuring in the outdoors,” Swanson said. “We live in a culture of fear and people react strongly when women go on outdoors adventures, especially when they go alone. The truth is that with planning and preparation, the outdoors can be a very safe place.” The fall workshop is Friday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Sept. 16, in a new location this year at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center near Finland, Minn. Attendees will hear from Swanson and Minnesota state park naturalists. Session topics include Ojibwe heritage, Voyageurs, archery, canoeing, and the animals, plants and geology of the North Woods. Linda Bylander, coordinator of the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program, said that along with the new location, the workshop offers a new selection of classes this year. “Women who attend the fall workshop gain a whole range of experiences in a supportive environment,” Bylander said. “We chose dates when the fall colors should provide a beautiful backdrop. The workshop is designed for women ages 18 and up but girls ages 14 to 17 are welcome to attend with parents or guardians. Visit mndnr.gov/bow for more information and to register.

      Quite a strong bite for the Streiffs tourney. I think there were 20 or so over 28", with the biggest weighing 10 3/4. Last year I think there were five overs. The boats were spread all over the lake. Many were fishing the mud, a few were quite shallow and some on the rocks. Most guys spoke of slot fish like crazy......but roughly 1 out of 6 boats having a 28" plus is crazy!! The stage got a bit crowded when the big fish catchers got up there for a picture.

      They can go on opener like everyone else does instead of pre-emptively scaring the local ducks out of the area.

      Congratulations!.  I am sure it's a bittersweet time for you.  All the best!
