I am planning a trip over to Lura for opener next weekend & was wondering if anyone has any info on species in this lake...I have heard there are some nice size eyes is this true? also curious if there is a decent crappie bite going on over there. Appreciate any comments.

as for the walleye yes there are a few hogs in there not sure about the crappie population however, one other thing

lura lake is real weedy in the spring to the point where half the lake is choked out with weeds so i would question if its worth your trip there yet or not just a thought.

Hey luckycrank does it get weed choked this early? I wanted to try it this spring too. I know it's shallow and gets weedy but I figured I'd at least have a week or two after the opener.

Thanks ~piker

Had a blast fishing lura this winter... saw some beautiful fish come out of there. they were very spooky, had to stay still and couldn't fish in a house during the day. Saw many eyes come up drom 25-29".

      As crazy as that might sound, May 18th isn’t a bad guess.  We were on the lake yesterday and had somewhere around 30” of solid ice with some snow on top.  This is hard January-type ice.  No honeycombing, no chipping or slush.  In fact, my Dewalt hammer drill couldn’t take it.  It’s dead.   Another foot of snow on the way this week?  That won’t help.

      Try the area where Minnehaha Falls runs into the river up to the ford dam. I've just used jig and fathead. Been several years since I've fished down there, but saw a lot of people shore fishing there. Pretty snaggy down there.

      Never tried it down there, sounds like fun. Let us know how you did.  👍

      Entries sure rolled in when I offered the case of beer.  We could meet at my Stuntz Bay boathouse if that would work.  Close to the landing, could anchor in front of the boathouse, or could park your vehicle at by the boathouse.  Maybe we could require the winner to be present, LOL.

      Thinking about trying pool 2 (from shore) for the first time tomorrow morning, ideally looking for walleye. Anyone know any decent spots or what kind of baits I should use?   Thanks in advance

      I know the owner.  In fact we rode snowmobiles together a couple days after the fire.  He lost most of his belongings.  Sounds like it was electrical.

      I drove by the spot I thought it was on the snowmobile and couldn't find it.
