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.
