Bad Medicine Lake

2 posts in this topic

Anyone ever fish this lake? We went down there last year because we heard of the great bite but we only got small 1 pound trout if that. Not many at that . We stayed at a very nice camp ground(not sure I can say the name here) but we loved the trip because of the great place we stayed.We want to go back. mostly because of the camp ground. Wouldn't mind an excuse to go back but we just couldn't get into the big trout that we were told about.What do they bite on down there? Fishing??????? for Info.LOL thanks

THAT'S why you didn't catch any large fish. that lake has been pounded hard over the last several years with word of a "hot bite". More harvest going on than fish coming in, with a lot of large fish going home in the cooler. Only one way to get big fish in a put and take fishery, and that's to leave some go.

The lake is beautiful and I can understand why anyone would want to fish it. I'd say to come back again, but not expect to catch any large trout. However, there are some great walleyes and large pike to be caught (fat from eating all the small trout). There is also a blossoming smallmouth fishery there.

It's hard to keep a good bite a secret anymore.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
