Lake George

Recommended Posts

riversmallmouth35

I have never fished Lake George before and was wondering how the shore fishing is. My brother has also been wondering if you could put a canoe in the lake and fish. We tried calling city hall and they told us to call the police department. Then the police department told us to call City hall.

If any of you guys have any information about the lake it would be appreciated.

I wouldn't waste your time. Unless you have a real tasty way to cook up bullheads. That is all I have ever caught. If you are looking for a close fishery....head to the beaver islands on the mississippi river. You will have a lot of fun down there. Good luck

I know a bunch of channel cats were dumped in there the past few years to help thin out the stunted fish, but I haven't fished that lake in 15+ years.

There is a variety of fish species in the lake. If you use the search function there was a thread on it about a year ago with info you are looking for.

Thanks for the help you guys. The other link from last year helped a little.

don't think they allow boats in there of any kind (with the exception of the paddle boats, which I think they are bringing back this summer)...

I have fond memories of fishing lake george back in the day...always caught plenty of sunnies and bullheads to keep us busy. My bro even managed a solid 1 pound GOLDFISH outta there one year.

I say give it a go!

GOLDFISH indeed!

I was walking around the lake with my kids last year and saw 3 in the shallows that I would describe as very fancy koi.

I haven't fished it for years but I bet you could find something to bite.

      Popped down for half hour to check a spot this morning and only one showed up for a pic. Water is up 2 feet from 2 weeks ago. Hope to try a spot north of town tuesday.

      Ok, so all the biologists, scientists, and compiled data is wrong and you're right.  Lets rape and pillage the lake until there's absolutely nothing left.  Great idea tfin.  In fact, maybe when the walleyes are all gone we should harvest all the muskies, smallmouth bass, and pike in the lake too.  And then blame the DNR for it.  Go fly a kite

      I was out 2 weeks ago from today and it was still pretty good.  Water temp was 54.  I don't plan to go again now because my boat is winterized.  My Father said it has been miserable the past week because the water got so cold so quick.  It looks decent this week for weather but deer season is fast approaching so I have to prepare for that now.

      No ice in Stuntz Bay yet but I did lift the boat out of the water onto the boathouse deck.  Easy to drop it back in if the water is soft after I get my deer.

      I took a trip this August to Buffalo River State Park to wade in the river while hitting the holes. My brother and I caught a variety of fish from red horse and chubs to a clam. All fish were caught on worm chunks. This spring/summer I want to use my new 5wt fly road and see what I catch

      Let’s get them 22-27 inch fish out of the lake

      I think anybody can see that the food/forage base is or has declined in Mille lacs.......having a lot of large fish doesn't help it at all. I think they should thin the herd.

      Well was a sad day today indeed. Got the kayak all vacuumed out and cleaned up. Then hung it in it’s winter spot in the shed. Trailer got a cleaning to. But until next year so long open water. Time to finish putting the open water gear away and finish getting the ice gear out.

      10/21/18     I have hunted in the Hutchinson area the last two weekends with my Dad, son, and some friends. Dakota ducks are trickling through central MN as the calendar migration has begun. With strong NW blows before or during the past two weekends, we have harvested mallards, gadwalls, redheads, bluebills, canvasbacks, and ringnecks, as well as a couple of geese hunting from a boat blind on some shallow lakes. This calendar migration should continue over the next couple weeks whenever we can get a strong NW or West wind. It will take some more cold and frozen water in Canada to get the big Canadian birds to come down--hopefully that happens before Thanksgiving. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Snow?  Yeah I finally ran into some today.     And I HAD to get them on the tailgate! 😅   And that is one of the reasons to leave that stuff in MN for a little while.  😎
