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.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂

      Heading up to the river in the morning trying to decide if I should fish up the river or out if wheelers.

      Sure wish we would get a strong enough east wind to pile the ice on shore. Lot of ice out there and it will take a long time if it has to all melt.
