Spirit lake information...

8 posts in this topic

My wife is looking into a camp on Spirit lake near Fredric for summer vacation, just wondering if this lake has any quality fish in it. Panfish(gills), bass, northerns mostly. Is there a wisconsin dnr lake report available for this lake? I checked the Wisc. DNR webpage and and couldn't really find anything crazy If anyone could help me out here it would be greatly appreciated. I can't fathom spending a week on a lake that sucks!

Never fished that one, but alot of good lakes around there.

I grew up fishing near by Bone lake and did good on bass and crappie, with lots of big musky encounters. that was 20 years ago, dont know how it is now

I fish Spirit at least a couple times every summer. I would say it's one of the best bass lakes in the area, alot of northerns, but tend to run on the small side, and some real nice crappies if you can find em. I don't know about any fishing reports for the lake.

Good panfish lake in the winter. You can find some 8.5 to 9 inch gills and decent crappies, as well as tons of northerns. I have never fished it in the summer.

Even if the lake turns out to be not so great, there are dozens of great lakes in the area. No need to get stuck on just one.

    • 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.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
