Stony (Stoney?) Lake near Hackensack

Recommended Posts

Eye Slayer

Has anyone ice fished this lake? I have seen people reference fishing it in the summer but no comments on the winter bite.

I am looking for a new place to try (besides Birch and Ten Mile) for walleye, perch, or pike. I am looking for a smaller lake (~1,000 acres or less) to minimize risk of poor ice conditions (like on Woman).

Just looking to change the scenery a bit...

I've heard good things about the narrows. Crappies and walleyes moving into that area around sunset. Hearsay, haven't tried it myself.

I have a place on Stony since 68. Stony is a clear lake, so that makes for a hard walleye bite. If you get any, you are going to have to work for them. Sunfish and northerns are on the small side. I haven't caught any crappies in some time. The DNR report pretty much says it all. I more or less, gave up. One person will put their house in the narrows, and it will automaticaly draw attention. It is a beautiful lake, but like so many lakes, it has felt the pressure. But give it a try. Maybe the sunken island in the northern part of the main lake. Nobody seems to hit that much.

Eye Slayer, I fish Stony quite a bit in the summer, but not very often in the winter. I have a place on Pleasant and usually fish between the 2. The walleyes can be very illusive, but once you find them, they aren't that difficult to catch. I would start out from the narrows and move shallower towards the narrows during lowlight periods. If nothing, I would fish around the sunken island. I've had the most luck on the southeast edge of the island. Fish anywhere from 15-35 feet, stay mobile and you shouldn't have a problem getting on some nice eyes. Email me if you have any more questions. Rhino0018 at yahoo

Lake Dr., I will shoot you an email later today. Thanks so much for all of this information. I have never really had much luck off of my home waters (Birch) so I am really looking forward to doing some exploring!

Thanks again!

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      This is great! I’ve never heard of this either Skunked, thanks for sharing- will give it a shot this summer!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
