Don,

Thanks for the information and welcome to FishingMinnesota.com.

Where's Cambrige? Is that near Cambridge? wink.gif Sorry, just tugging your chain a little.

We're glad to have you on board, Don.

Don-

Welcome!! I havn't been out there yet. I think I'll try this week if it warms up just a tad to around 15-20 degrees.

Any size to the Crappies? Last year, lots of real small ones averaging 6 1/2-7 inches.
I might have been in a bad location.

Don,

Sorry, dude. I hope I didn't scare you away.

Unfortunately, you can't change your User Name. You have to re-register under another name. So, "Don in Cambrige" will live forever.

BTW - I thought "Cambrige" looked wrong. But, I still had to look around to find out how to spell it. If it weren't for spell checkers, my posts would look like a 1st grader typed it (or a teacher). wink.gif

NO i did'nt get scared away but cambridge was just too original. Anyhow this lake just is not working for me. Can anyone tell me a good lake around here for eyes. I do all of my fishing at night so that's all i am looking for.

Thanks for the laugh ray.

Don,

I'd consider hiking over to Rush if you're interested in walleyes. Lots of point and lots of humps that have after dark potential.

And, if you ask Cory (Coryntracysellhomes) here real nice, he can give you some real good general info on the eyes out there. He lives on the lake and actually fishes it, so he knows what's going on.

ExudeDude,

You actually were one up on me. You insulted my vintage ice house. I got over it, but my ice house still hasn't. Poor thing.

I'll retract my teacher comment as I have a sister-in-law that thinks she's a smart teacher. Again, I kid. I'm just jealous of all you teachers. 3 months off. Boy did I miss my calling.

Goose Lake can put out some decent Northerns too. The bay where you access on the NE end is a good place to start.

Sorry, Don. I was just giving Exudedude a bad time. I'm kind of punchy since I haven't fished since last Thursday.

Don of cambrige-

Don't giveup on Skogman- I live on the lake and have had some nice Pike brought up through the hole. Just havn't had the time/energy to hoof it down the 45 feet down the hill to the lake.

Good Luck-RR4

D-O-Cambrige,

As far as Walleye's go it is not a good lake, they don't(per the DNR) naturally reproduce. They do stock it on an every other year basis.

Pike fishing can be good, taking in consideration, times and conditions.

North Center! Any offshore structure was holding an abundance of dinky walleyes.

Like I said, so much for my hot tips. Unless dink walleyes are the game for someone.

      Fished for a few hours this afternoon after the rain went through and the wind died down a bit. Tried a good dozen places in between black bay and the Brule and only got around 10 fish for the effort. The water was still pretty much ice cold at a cool 65 degrees in the main lake. We checked a few off shore reefs and saw zero signs of life on the ones we checked. The places we did get a few fish was were there was a rock to mud transition near shore on points. All in all another tough outing for us and on a side note, on the way in we pulled cranks in shallow water and the May flys were thick on the surface on the wind blown side.

      I fished at the Forbes canoe access below the dam one day. And caught a 16 inch on a fly. I will give it a float and report back after the fourth

      Any tips on smallies up there? First time coming up.

      Nice report as usual, Hoey. We are fishing Wed and Thurs. Sounds like it will be ugly hot coming up. Hopefully, the fish will finally get into their summer patterns.

      Definitely hit up some trails. My kids love to hike and explore. They surprise me with their willingness to keep trekking along. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      As long as there are bugs to eat, the trout will always hit the surface. As summer progresses, there will be less and less trout to catch.

      Does it ever quit blowing?  Tough conditions this week. Fish scattered all over the place.  Bass hitting the best, panfish the least. Walleyes in the middle.  Best for us has been late afternoon on lindys and leeches. Nothing great but with the warmup coming I think things will improve. Did see a 7-8 lber caught ,  on a Daredevil of all things.  Keep the beer cold.  Go get em.  Rayguy

      Hey guys! We were up last weekend but only got to fish for a few hours. We caught a bunch of pike anywhere from mid teens in length to the low 20” range. We also caught a few bass and a few walleyes. Biggest eye was 19. We contacted all our fish from 16-20 feet. Most of our bites came on a jig and minnow. My wife and brother and law were trolling spinners but only managed pike. We did try crawlers without any success but again we were only out for a few hours. We fished on whitefish and targeted bars and a couple of wind blown underwater points. Good luck this weekend! Maybe we’ll see ya out there!
