Pleasant Lake?

Never fished this lake before and haven't seen any postings for this lake in recent weeks. Is it worth the trip, where do you set up camp? Anything you can give me is more then I have now.

It's a pretty good pike and crappies lake. Some real nice ones at time as well. There are special regs for the sunfish last time I checked. As far as where to set up? There's the crappie hole about half way up the north shore. Go farter west and there's a few more spots.

People get a few walleyes too. But there aren't a lot of them in the lake.

As far a talk goes you won't hear much. Folks who fish it generally don't talk much.

Well thanks for the info. I may give it a try. Is the access on the north side right next to that restraunt/bar?

My brother and i went out today from 1 til 4. Only caught 1 small pike. I see there's a village on the 34' hole. Crappies must be biting a little. Or is it 'little crappies must be biting?' wink.gif The guy kinda by us had a tip-up go off about 5 times in an hour, but nothing worth writing home about. I'll be heading back to Bass this friday and hopefully hitting up Kraemer on Saturday. Good luck to all!

My experience with this lake is that it is deteriorating. A few years ago the pike action was awesome but since then a lot of spearing houses and considerably more people have been out there and it has been getting worse everytime I go out. I used to be able to get sunnies and pike all day long, but now its hard to find the sunnies and the pike are few are far between, and the ones you do get are just little snotrockets.

Seems to me it's only in the winter that it's extremely pressured like this. I go there every now and then in Summer and it's not too bad on most days. Some days though.... tongue.gif

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
