I fished here last night and caught 2 bass on opposite ends of the lake, fishing was tough, lots of recreational boating and catching the torn up weeds every cast. Had alot of bites, no takers though. It was a nice night though!!

I have fished it a few times, one of the the better spots for bass that I have found are throught the channel into (? lake) just as you go through the channel take an imediate right and fish that shore for the next 50yds....good bas in that are.

Fish the large sand poin that stretches across the main lake in the evening. The channel is good but you will have to be quite and move slowly because the fish spook. There is also a small bay in Olson were you will find bass. I have found nice fish in both lakes.

First be sure to notice the no-wake rule before noon (I think noon...). No biggie, as the lake is small.

We have got the biggest bass on deep deep cranks or heavy jigs and worms in deeper water, or on yellow=black topwaters VERY early in the morning, right up in the very shallow water.

There are a few holes in Olsen Lake that produce quite well, but you will need to watch for them both visually and with locator, as some are fairly small and you just watch the weeds edges.

I got a big old 38" pike on a plastic worm, and another bigger one years ago trolling in after dark with a daredevil.

You need to get there early, as the parking spots fill up quickly, and they WILL ticket you if not in a legit spot. Have fun!

I live just up the hill from this lake. I have been shocked by how many people are using this lake this summer. People are having to park on my street about a half mile away in the middle of the day. I could start a taxi service to drive them back to the landing and make some extra cash. Most of the boats seem to be pleasure boats and not fisherman. I like fishing this lake but I think I will wait for the fall when it is less full.

I fished there last night and caught one bass and one northern both just average fish. There was a county sheriff out there writing tickets to speeders after sunset. Apparently there is a no wake rule in effect by the bouys on the sandy point in the middle of the lake. So watch your speed coming back to the launch area in the evening and make sure your lights are on.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.

      On the south end...  A great 2022 MN Fishing Opener for most anglers.  The walleyes and saugers are hungry and the bite is on!  Good numbers of fish caught. Lots of big fish amongst the eaters.  Most anglers were vertically jigging in 6' - 20'.  Anchor up and jig over the side of the boat.  A nice mix of sizes.   The water is a bit dirty on the east portion of the south shore due to runoff from the rivers.  A bright jig with a minnow is the most productive. Reports were also good from the west portion of the south shore.  A bit cleaner water and equally good bite.  Lots of big fish mixed in with eaters.  Some anglers fishing on structure or on the edge of structure where available. On the Rainy River...   A lot of walleyes in the river as predicted, but the current is ripping and the water is a bit dirty.  Those who found slack water often found fish.  The norm was 6' - 15' with a bright jig and minnow.   Typical spots in the main channel were tough to fish due to high current.  The fast moving water helped to congregate fish.  Once you found them, there were normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig bite up at the Angle for the opener.  Most fish were caught in 6' - 20' adjacent shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  With cold water, a subtle presentation.  Both fatheads and frozen shiners worked well. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      Greetings all! Our group (two boats/five guys) is looking at fishing/camping trip based at Hinsdale Island Campground or Wake 'Em Up Bay Campground in about 3 weeks.  Can anyone advise about Hinsdale, especially the shoreline for landing boats? (Is it sandy or rocky? Mostly protected?) We're also wondering how busy both campgrounds are? We've stayed at Wake Em Up,  but that was 6-8 years ago and it was mostly empty...just the host and 2-3 others. Nowadays, do either or both fill up on June weekends? (We'd probably arrive on a Saturday, stay most of the week.) Of course, we also welcome suggestions for walleye techniques, depths, etc. We tend to fish smallies during the day and chase eyes in the evening.  Thanks in advance for your help!
