I have fished this small lake three times this year and have caught quality crappie and bluegill. There is a concrete boat ramp and room for roughly 8 to 10 rigs " its a gravel parking lot so it depends on how others park.

Little lake is shallow, stained and full of pads and milfoil. This 159 acre


A couple of weeks ago the crappie were on a little reed island to the right of the boat ramp. Caught 25 to 30 over 9 inches in 2 feet of water " kept 5 7 inchers for the frying pan"

Yesterday I fished the island for 1 hour and no hits, moved to the lilly pads in the Northwest corner of the lake and found crappie on the most outer edge.

All crappie were caught on a Flu Flu with either a minnow or wax worm.

This would not be the best lake to take a young child. The action can get slow while your trying to locate the fish but when you do get a hit its generally and nice fish.

Bluegill are spotty "at least they have been for me" on all my trips I have caught 10 crappie for each bluegill. The largest bluegill caught and released was a shade over 10 inches.

Also if you do fish this lake please keep the smaller fish for the pan. This is a small lake.

      Is anyone interested in pheasant hunting in SD in Mid or Late November?  I used to do more of it but kinda got busy with really young kids for a few years there and lost the dog around the same time. I basically gave it up for a while. I would like to start making a trip or two back out to SD and would really like to meeting some other guys who enjoy the sport.  It would be great to find a few new friends around the same age +/- 10 years and maybe some of the same interests in fishing and hunting. Live in the Twin Cities area so we could drive down if you are in the area or just meet out in SD sometime.

      I do not believe that is from Red. It shows sunny's under the smallest fish and according to the DNR, there are none in Red.

      On the main basin... As water temps approach mid 40's, walleye anglers reporting strong fall bite. Good fish caught despite a lot of precipitation this past week.  Clear weather in forecast.  Walleyes staging at various south shore locations in 20-29'.  Jig and frozen shiner the ticket. Anchor up and jig with gold, glow red, or gold/orange.  Fish are very active. On the Rainy River... Strong walleye activity continues.  Jig and frozen shiners continue to be go to method with some anglers also trolling crankbaits.  Shiner run has slowed for the moment but good numbers of walleyes in river.  Sturgeon have the feed bag on.  The sturgeon catch and release season goes though April 23, 2019.  The bite is on!     Up at the NW Angle... Fishing continues to be excellent.  Limits of walleyes being caught in 14 - 25'.  Jigging still producing.  Look for areas of current in neck down areas and outside of bays.  Fall crappie bite continues strong.  Big pike are making their presence felt, like it or not!  Muskie trollers boating and releasing good numbers of fish.  The best fall fishing is yet to come!

      Wow, it would be interesting to see if the big winners Cory, Justin and Dave all drove down from Canada together and where they hide the fish to get across the boarder?  🤔  😆

      I am gonna go out on a limb here and say they did not catch a 15 pound walleye on Upper Red in MN.
