Recommended Posts

I'm coming up to PR this summer and just wanted to know what everyones favorite lake was. I've fished Big Sand, Little Sand, Potato, a couple of the Crows and Long so far, and kind of want to get some new blood in there.

Hey Man,

I would have to say if yout talking Walleye I'll have to

say Potato. If you include Muskies it's Mantrap.

Thanks guys, I got a chance to get out on the 'Trap this summer and was able to pull out a decent musky and have had a little success with walleyes over at Potato. I had a real good bite with walleye over at one of the Crows last year. Still need to get out on George and the other one though

I can say the wallys in Potato can be pretty difficult at times but if you find them you can be rewarded. I have cought 3 that would be in the 8-10 lb range while fishing the weeds for bass. There are some really nice ones in there.

Well, I'm biased towards Long. I've lived on it since I was little. Great for fishing until the weekend party tourists arrive.

bass get to be a pest deeper.

Go Ike

There are so many good lakes in the area it is hard to narrow them down. It's hard to narrow one down overall.. Big Sand is Great for walleye, the trap obviously for muskies.. but which lake overall bass, northern, crappie, walleye, and/or muskie is the best lake for quantity/quality?

Go Ike, In my opinion that would be Long Lake. It has all the species you mentioned except muskies and that lake I catch more quality fish than any other lake in the area.

It's not quite in Park Rapids but just a 15-20 minute drive. Height of Land has quality walleyes, bluegills, crappied, all the northerns you want, and Jumbo Perch. Just fish the weed edges in 7-10 fow and you'll catch fish.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks
