any 1 fish it? i know its a small lake but its close to my house, and i might bike down to the park on the east (i think) side of the lake because there is a small opening where i might be able to toss a line in when my dad cant take me and the boat to a bigger lake. i think it might be called sunset park, or something to do w/ sun.

try to find a lake map on the dnr site. it has sunny and

crappie. it's known to freeze out but hasn't in the last

few years. good places to fish all around the pond. during

later ice fish the deep hole, other wise you can shore

fish almost all of the lake but the north end. later Dogg

Hi, I keep a kayak in the City rack on the West side of the lake...and I often fish it when I have a little time to kill and don't feel like taking the Skeeter out.

There are a ton of very small panfish in the lake, very high numbers of bullheads. Also some northerns & bass in the obvious spots. But the lake is very shallow, very weedy so not too easy to fish from shore. And it has been hit with winter kill a couple times in recent years. It might be interesting to drill a hole or two in the ice this winter in the main lake basin...I haven't tried that yet, but may give it a shot this year. Access isn't great, so plan on wrestling auger & gear down a steep path.

Hi, I fished the lake when I was younger. My buddy and I would take his duck boat and fish the lake. There are some nice pike and Bass in the lake . My biggest pike was a 36". Biggest bass was a 19". We would use spinnerbaits. I know some people catch nice crappies in Alamagnet in the spring.

Good luck!!!

Well the park that i was going to fish happens to be on the north end (Sunset park). i was planning on fishing there because it was the closest to my house. is it worth my effort to bike down to alimagnet park instead, and find a spot to fish there?

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      To bad HSO doesn't have something like this for the Leaders board Top Members contributions. 😕

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?

      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
