Just curious if anyone else has much experience hardwater fishing on Lost Lake. We headed out there this afternoon to give it a try. Tired of all the continual walleyes on Vermilion. We went out to the 20' cut between the island and the bald rock. Had lots of action but all small walleyes. Lots of perch on the camera but not to willing to bite. Was surprised that there were 2 permanent houses out there. Kinda nice not having to clean fish after an afternoon of fishing.

I have had decent luck on Lost during early ice.

No slot size fish, but many in the 1-1/2# to 2# range.

The 2 permanant houses belong to friends of mine. They fish Lost almost exclusively during the winter.

Nice lake to fish if you like to fish by yourself!

Basically you just find the deep spot and set up or what? I have fished it tons in the summer.. tried it a few times and just never had good luck in the winter. I guess i really havent fished it enough in the winter to know much but dang there is some good action there in the summer..

I have had my best luck on the North shoreline.

Early and late in the day.

Shinner minnows under a bobber or tip-up.

12' to 16' there if I remember right.

First step is to got to the DNR web site and pull a lake map from lakefinder. It will give you a real good idea of the structure that is there to work with. Which is not much. When we were there on Sunday, there were people in 4 different areas. It would be an easy lake to learn. You can easily find the different areas. Just look for the portable fish house marks. Have fun. good luck.

Hey Cliff,

Adam was looking at the last DNR survey for Lost Lake and said that there was a fair number of Crappie in there also. Have you even caught any there?

I thought that survey data looked good until I noticed when it was done. Check out the date on it. It is older than I am crazy.gif

I have never caught any crappies there but the old owner of the landing area showed me a couple of stringers of VERY nice crappies he caught there in the summer.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
