How to fish fox lake

Recommended Posts

Based on water clarity, or lack of I should say, I'd be looking at bucktails and spinnerbaits to make some noise and thump off some good vibration. Maybe some cranks with a nice wobble too.

Bring some topwaters, traditionally it's a little earlier in the year that you see the topwater pattern in swing, but on a shallower lake like that with clarity issues, it could be a good option, especially with the warmer weather this week. Look more at the slow creepers or inline lures that will help avoid the blow ups and misses.

Take a look at the post going about the nighttime fishing, same lures will be ones to look at on Fox.

I have only fished Fox once with out any luck. Threw shore lines for about four hours and trolled for about six hours without seeing a fish. The waters very green with the shore lines full of weeds so it's hard to get a bait close to shore. I hear there are big fish there, I think once a person spends some time they will find some nice fish on fox.

I fish Fox Lake a lot. I've caught some nice muskies out of there. Mostly in the fall, once the weeds along the shoreline start to die off. I'd start with some big bucktails with big blades. My biggest was caught on a Hellhound. Try all the shoreline by the power plant, especially the point and around the island. Also the shoreline straight across from the power plant can be good. As for colors, I've had good luck with red, orange, gold or white. I'm heading down there on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Thanks for the input. After the few days for fishing let me know how you did. I'm heading up to Mille Lacs on Thursday to Tuesday to try my luck at some Smallies, Walleye, and if I'm lucky a pig muskie. Next time I'm down to Fox ill bring those colors along. Good Luck to all over the Fourth.

Fished Fox Lake all day on Tuesday and Wednesday until about noon. Did get a 39" Tuesday night. Also caught a nice fat 26" walleye. The weeds are getting pretty thick around the shoreline.

    • I like seeing that gas line open in the bathroom.  I saw a couple manufactures at a show this summer that had them hidden in the wall and that absolutely terrifies me.  If something were to happen with it they would be sol.
    • This was probably one of the most frustrating Muzzy seasons I can remember. There are lots of deer around. Cameras and tracks in the snow confirmed that. We just saw very few in the daylight. The properties we hunt do get hit pretty hard with the rifle guys, but usually with some snow/cold they will start to hit the food sources in the afternoons as the season progresses. But not this year. They would wait until about 5:30 before arriving on the food. Oh well we still had lots of fun. I will go out a few times yet with the bow. Still have a doe tag that would love to fill.
    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
