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!

      Care to share where in Ripley this feeding flat is?  Maybe I shoot a deer and catch fish in Ripley this year!😁

      As usual Curt, thanks for all the reports you provide to us folks that only get up to LOW 4-5 times/year.  Coming up again for the MEA weekend, fishing Thursday-Saturday.  Looks like Thursday's going to be nice with warmer temps and WSW winds.  If we get the heavy WNW winds on Saturday, is the LP area fishable.  Seems like the more west it is the comfort level goes up dramatically.  Bringing the kids this trip, so there not real big fans of the 4-5 footers if you know what I mean.  Hope to see ya Thursday, we'll be in a 2150 Lund and 18.5 Alumacraft.

      These fish came of the feeding flat.

      I like finding aggressive crappies and those feeding flats normally have more aggressive crappies plus some big gills mixed in.

      This is great advice as well @monstermoose78. I will add that another reason crappies suspend over a deep basin is because of the plankton rising and dropping from and back to the mud basin below based on light levels.

      Got back yesterday from a week at my shack. Tough conditions. Lots of rain and over 6" of snow. My buddy and I saw 28 grouse and got 15. They were pretty wild and had to put the chase on alot of them. Got pretty wet running after them and snow falling on your head. Had to chainsaw our way out to the trucks thanks to the heavy wet snow.

      There are lots of options and they all work better for some than others for each individual situation.     I use a mix of single rod cases (hard tube with reel bag on the end), the Bunk box Rick has (works for my laker rods), and break down fly rod case that I custom cut the foam on to fit my in-lines.   Basically, make sure your rods aren’t too long for your house!  From there you could even build an insert into your tub and line it with foam.  Custom cut the interior to fit your rods your way.  Ever go the the Thorne Brothers potable mods gathering.  You could get some ideas there for sure!

      I’m in for 2nd season also.  Looking forward to sharing a good hunt with both new and old friends.

      I am hoping to get the boat out on the lake this Thursday. Looks like it is going to be in the upper 50's!
