Lobster Lake....worth it????

8 posts in this topic

I am thinking about giving Lobster a try for the skies, but was wondering if it is worth going to. I hear that is gets the snot pounded out of it by the Alexandria guys, but so does every other lake. Also been told it isn't an exteremely hard lake to fish on. Thoughts from the fellas?

It's been tough out there so far this year, for me anyways......another couple weeks or so and it should start going.

Absolutely, I really enjoy fishing that lake. You can break it down like 3 different lakes, kind of. I really like the middle section and the area down by and between the islands.

Man I haven't been there in quite some time, don't make it to the cabin to often anymore, but Oscar which is very close is another option in that area.

It has been slow. I was out there on Wednesday and caught two decent pike. I would guess this whacky summer isn't helping at all either with these huge swings in temperatures.

My alexandria connection has reported a good topwater bite on overcast days on Lobster this year. They've picked off a few with double blades as well.

Oscar is by Holmes City. It is around 1100 acres, but pretty shallow. I don't know how long the DNR has been stocking fish in it, but there are supposed to be some decent fish in it, although I don't believe that the population is very high.

    • They are drumming like crazy now. In fact, I even hear them at night. My wife said when she was a teenager growing up in rural Wisconsin, she always thought that drumming sound was the nearby powerstation.    
    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
