What is the name of this lake??


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know this lake or pond? It's located on county (not highway) 40 and it's just west of Norway and Games lake. It's before you get to highway 104 leading into Sunburg. County 40 curves slightly around a farm place and the lake or pond is behind this farm on the north. There is a gravel road on the east side of this lake. Pretty good sized and I know from experience in the summer shore fishing there's bass & northern's in there. Is there any sunnies or crappies in there? How deep is this lake? I've chatted about this lake in the past but seems to be confussed for Sunburg sloughs. I don't know maybe it's just me. Would like to try ice fishing on it but wasn't sure what to expect. Thanks.

Last summer we dumped the boat off the east side road. We caught lots of very nice bass. We tried for pannies but couldn't keep the bass off our lines and like you said we seen some ppl shore fishing. They seemed to be catching lots of fish too. As for the name of it, I would'nt have a clue?? Bass lake grin.gif

The lake is not named on the map or the DNR web site. I have heard it called "Just" Lake before. It is at the intersection of Co 113 and Co 40. It is loaded with largemouth bass.

I know this lake has been used for trapping minnows many years ago. Was a great bluebill lake, shot my first bill on that lake. Just could be right,knutsons lake is east of this one. Knutsons lake is on the west side of knutsons wildlife area. ha sanyone tried golden pond by sunberg? Last year it was putting out several limits of walleyes.

Thanks for the replies. I too looked on the DNR website and knew after seeing that it wasn't Knutson's. Guess I'll be calling it Just Lake now. Went out there Sunday with a buddy of mine, we used it as an excuss to get out and do something away from the wives. No such luck though. Was out maybe 2:00 to 5:00 and didn't even mark a fish. We were in 11' of water. Man is that lake clear. We could see the bait at the bottom looking down the holes. Great looking ice too. We drilled a couple holes to see the depths on this lake but seemed pretty constant. We didn't treck over to the far west side. It was blowing pretty good out there, too cold for walking around. We were on the north side more towards the middle.

The name of this lake is Skare,most recently Just as a family farm of Just distinction occupys much of it .As far as Knutson it is on a wildlife area only half mile east and you should probaly stay off as its rumored to be leased as walleye stock .They are not in season now so I waited to respond. There is approximatly half mile of township road on east side of Skare lake that has a DNR easement that a land speculator purchased the east side of but has no retention rights to keep you off. Landowner told me about the massive amount of fish kill in spring over the past few years.its excellent shorefishin for bass and nortern if you dont get at it this winter. Most of the roadside lakes and large sloughs are really fun around opener for gator action ,leave the boat at home,try every 250 feet alogside monson,skare,sunburg and sunburg etc, when in doubt get a township map and get some private property permmision and make a weekend out of it.its very entertaining in this area.

      The mayflies are just starting in Frazier Bay.  We could see a few in the boat the last couple of days.  Then started seeing big trails on water yesterday and today.  I just got done cleaning 3 walleyes and they were full of them.

      Have the Mayflies started.  We are coming up end of July and trying to see what the time line for them are this year.  Not sure how the late ice out would effect the hatch.  Thanks in advanced.

      67 degrees today in big bay. No fish today for me.

      Just an update, walleye are still hanging on the week edges.  I caught mine in 8-10FOW again.  Lost one that was 4-5lbs.  Best part, I have yet to use livebait this open water season.  Basically the same technique as last week.     Only issue is finding the weeds that hold the fish.  Same as last week, just looking on SI, finding small transitions between weed edge, soft/hard bottom ect.     Once you find them, then you can spot lock/talon down and cast at them.     And, as before all fish were released.

      Saturday and Sunday were tough days on the water, NW winds post cold front. Got better yesterday and today. Took a retired friend out today and sent him home with 4, should have been 6 but I was off my game. Water Temps around 70. Unfortunately can only fish Thursday as I have to work a few days, this weekend. Safe travels on the Independence weekend!

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it
