Heading up to Snowbank

Recommended Posts

strat-o-caster

Heading up to Snowbank this coming weekend. Any info about the lake would be Very helpful. We'll be fishing on the part out of the park. I'm going up with a guy that know's the lake pretty well but thought I could also use some of the "expert" advice here. Thanks; Strat

strat-o-caster,

First time I've ever written to a guy named after a guitar grin.gif

I just talked to Denny at Smitty's on Snowbank and he said the ice is about 24-30 inches, getting a few trout in 55-75 feet, but the biggest ones have been caught about 15-20 below the surface (suspended)in various depths. His guests are seeing quite a few fish on the vexilars/cameras. Not too much info, but hope this helps. smile.gif

Hey Jim,

I think you should call in sick on Wed.- put the closed sign up for the day, then you and I go out there, pound on some big honkeys, and then come back here and tell everyone how we crushed 'em out on Snowbank! Man, I am getting the itch!! Wednesday is my last day of freedom until November 15 frown.gif

Yeah, sorry about hijacking the post there grin.gif Anyways, I have heard there have been a few fish caught out there lately. Don't be afraid to move around to different depths-even 28-35 FOW. That's about all I know-goood luck!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Great video, thanks for sharing, Mitch😉

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
