the closest bait shop to that lake that i kno of is the gander mtn. in lakeville. I live about 5min. away from this lake. You can catch crappies sunnies northerns and trout from this lake. There is bass in there but haven't come across them in the winter. The size of the sunnies and crappies aren't to big. You can catch some alright sized trout and northern there though.

Since there are trout in that lake, does that mean you have bait restrictions on the lake? I know that certain lakes with stream trout you can't use live minnows, is that the case with Holland too? I was thinking of giving that lake a try myself, I work about a mile from it.

There are rainbows and browns in it. I've only caught rainbows. There are also quite a few northerns. They've cut my line a couple times this year taking my little panfish jigs for the trout. It's not a designated trout lake so you can fish with two lines, and no bait restrictions. DNR frequents the lake, so make sure your up to specs on everything. I didn't have my name and address or DL number on my portable, but he let me go with a warning.

There are also panfish and crappie. Some yahoos left a tip-up in the ice overnight, an empty case of beer bottles, some empty propane canisters and other trash out there along with a trout and a really nice sized crappie. Just wasted them. I just don't have much tolerance for the kind of people that do that sort of thing.

The trout are getting finicky though from being fished. Might need to try some other tactics.

Good luck.

      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.   
    • osok
      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)
