Some anglers visit the lake to fish for the muskie, which are stocked every year by the Department. With a largemouth bass creel limit of one and a minimum size limit of 18 inches, the lake provides good bass fishing. Northern pike were stocked from 1997 to 1999 to prey on small bluegill and crappie. This management strategy is working. Instead of many thin crappies, the lake’s population is definitely shifting to fewer and fatter fish. In 1995, only one percent of the adult crappies in the lake were over eight inches long.

It’s not the heat — it’s the humidity! Ever found yourself saying something like that when talking about the weather? One thing we Minnesotans can always count on is the weather giving us plenty of material to talk about. The storms and tornadoes that we had the past few weeks were not the things that we need or want to fuel our conversation. The countless stories of people helping people in time of need were the good chapters of that book.

The sweltering heat and humidity of the past few days hasn’t done much to make me want to hit the lake in search of fish. I wonder if the fish take the same approach and are kicking back under a log, lily pad or dock waiting for cooler weather. I can only imagine a big ol’ hawg laying in wait for some poor unsuspecting baitfish to swim by and join it for a meal. Read More

Every serious lure ever made for pike and muskies falls somewhere within their prey-size spectrums. Muskie anglers like bigger baits because they know these baits often select for bigger fish. Pike anglers lay out a smaller fly because they know a big gator will ravage it. But when you see a muskie at boatside spit up a half dozen or so 2-inch perch, or a pike with the tail of a 2-pound sucker in its throat, it leaves you wondering if there’s more reason to work through size, when it’s practical, in the range of presentation options for both species.
