Nisswa Lake Aerator- Thin Ice Please use caution!

Recommended Posts

Sportland_Bait

Aeration system to be installed on Nisswa Lake

An aeration system creating open water and thin ice will be placed in Nisswa Lake this winter. The system will be located on the area of the lake where Nisswa Marina was located. Dates of operation will be Nov. 21 to March 31. Please use caution around posted areas.

If you have any questions please stop in before you venture out on Nisswa Lake this winter.

This is the first year I've heard of such a project on Nisswa. I'm not sure of the reasoning. As far as I know the lake seemed fairly healthy. Lots of crappies, panfish and pike. We'll keep an eye on things, see how it goes.

I thought there has been a sign next to the highway for at least several years indicating use of an aerator on Nisswa Lake. It's a brown sign just north of the creek by where the people park and walk out in the winter.

I haven't been on Nisswa Lake in many years, how shallow is it that it needs an aeration system?

CC is right. The sign has been on 371 and by the hazelwood access for at least 3 years. I think it has something to do with boat house that was built on the point. As far as I know, that is where the aerator is located.

You guys may be right, I probably just overlooked it. There has always been thin ice around the channel areas because of the current. I guess it seems strange that a lake with some current flow and moderate depth would need an aeration system. I wasn't aware that there ever was a problem with freeze-out. It may have been there all along, I just noticed it posted in the newspaper over the weekend and thought I'd pass along the info.

      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. 😎

      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).
