Storm Lake??????

6 posts in this topic

I noticed nobody ever mentions Storm Lake on here. I was just curious if anyone fishes Storm Lake, and if the walleye population is doing well since they dredged the lake. Anyone plan on hitting storm lake this winter?

Well, did you fish it Muc??

I use to go open water fishing on my uncles boat and haven't been on Storm for years.

What kind of fish besides walleyes were they catching.

I went to college in Storm Lake and hadn't fished it in 20 years. No reason...other than we're a bit closer to Boji and Spirit, so we usually head there. Anyway, this spring we loaded the boat and headed down there. They have done a bunch of dredging in the lake, which creates some fantastic break lines. On that particular day, nearly all the fish we marked were near these breaks. We caught our limit in a couple of hours pulling cranks, but saw other boats getting them with live bait as well. Didn't get back down there again, but heard the 'eye bite slowed down after June. For awhile though it was very good.

We did outstanding all the up to June, late ice, wader fishing and boat fishing.

I fished down there half a dozen times this fall and didn't even get a bite. I have heard pretty much the same from other guys that fish it.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
