I was at a Christmas play last night and drove by Lost lake on the way. That must have been you twords the middle of the lake as I saw one lighted shake and was wondering if the lucky person fishing was on a hot crappie bite. I asked about this lake because I took my daughter to the playground there a few times this year and on those occassions I tossed a line from the fishing pier. I was suprised and pleased by the size and number of fish caught. I caught sunfish, crappie, bass, and pike. I am for the most part a catch and release fisherman. The lake is small and I thought it might be worth a shot one night afterwork for some good quick action through the ice. It appears to be connected to White Bear so you may have a shot at a walleye as well. Do you fish this lake often with much success?

Yeah, that would of been me...That was my first time out on lost in years. According to the dnr, the lake did winterkill last year, but they also say it re-populated itself. They also stocked it a couple times this year with perch. I'm not sure if it is connected to white bear, but I was thinking that it was as well.

There was a few holes out there when I got there, and I also drove by tonight and saw someone out there, so It does get fished, but its definitely not fished as heavily as it was a few years ago. It wasn't uncommon to see 3-4 houses out there in the early winter.

good luck, and if you see a purple otter out there, that will most likely be me.

Shhhh, speak quietly, that's my favorite small lake to hit. I know people are listening here.

Seriously, it dosen't get a ton of pressure but it's not a real producer of big fish. It is connected to WBL thru culverts so there is the chance of anything there. There is worse lakes to kill some time on.

BTW, I have a Eskimo quik flip 2 so if you see me out there stop and say hi.

I have a the Eskimo Quick flip II as well. I would never try to ruin any man's littl honey hole. I just need something close to bend a stick for those days when I only have a few hours to get on the ice.

It's really not that great of a little lake, it's just close for me as well and you don't have to fight alot of people. Decent pike and you can catch some metro sized sunnies and crappies.

Try a tip up by the dock in about 10 feet of water, half way down.

At least we know the name of the lake this year. The next step is to actually get out on the ice and fish it.

i figured lost got winter kill, i hit the crappies out there about five times and every fish was the same size, they must all be stocked by the DNR, too bad it used to have some dandies. in 97' i cleaned 10 crappies over 1.5 pounds out of that lake.

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
