Splake and Rainbows

Recommended Posts

I am looking for some information on Splake and Rainbows. I will be doing some fishing while grouse hunting this fall sept- oct. Does anyone have suggestions on lures and location for either of these fish. Can they be caught from shore. I have never fished for either before. It will be in a small lake that I will be fishing.

If you would care to let me join you fishing there anytime this summer i can figure out what will work on them with what kind of lake it is. And show ya how. my email is [email protected] if you are interested. It would be nice to fish somewhere else besides the crosby mine pits.

mnwild14, the rainbows should be close to shore. As the season for trout lakes wines down the rainbows will be moving in close to shore. Nightcrawlers under a bobber or jig and twister will do the trick. Twister colors that work for me are white, brown, black, and purple. Jigs should be no bigger then 1/8 with 1/16 working the best for rainbows.
Splake are most commonly found at the bottom, in deeps of 20 feet or more. Use split shoots and a plain hook with a inflated nightcrawler just off the bottom.

Good Luck.

mnwild14~we have always had good luck fishing rainbow trout using Berkley Powerbait, with the majority of the time chartreuse being the most productive color, but also good luck on the hot pink and white. Benjamin Lake is producing well this time of year and it is stocked almost every year with rainbow.

Most of the above info is dead on. Looking for a cool trip? Tofte lake holds beautiful splake, chunky rainbows, and nice pockets of ruffs. Camp right on the lake. Hunting trails and other lakes within minutes.
(Gawd, I should be working for the Chamber up here. I sound like a commercial)

    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
    • same here!!!!!!not many birds right now. the wrens sure are noisy. catbirds are about the only thing eating the jelly. i'm going to be pulling the mealworm and jelly feeders soon.   my frustration is not having any morning doves around. and them gosh darn friggin sparrows.
    • It took me almost a year to get those flying squirrels out of my attic about 20 years ago, never did figure out how they got in and out.                                                My birds seem to have all but disappeared. Hope it’s nesting time and they’ll be back soon. Stupid catbirds keep slurping up my grape jelly though. 
    • Nancy, Welcome to the forum.   Thanks for the update. A lot of things can change in the last 10 years! 
    • June 2019 According to secchi disc readings, Eagle Lake near Battle Lake, MN is ranked #1 & Lake Six in the far north of Otter Tail County is ranked #2 w/ depth of 140 ft & clarity readings at times better than Eagle Lake.
    • I see plenty of people fail to slow down for a deer in the ditch, like the deer knows not to jump out.  Or a deer crosses and people don't slow down, even though there is a good chance there's more than one.   I had one run square into the side of my car.  Never saw it.  I thought I got sideswiped by car.  It rocked my car pretty good.  Deer got up, took 5 steps and fell over dead.    
    • Deer jumps out into the 4lane roadway at night, good luck with that speedy reaction time.      Don't over react and put it into oncoming traffic or the ditch.
    • Although I agree,  a higher deer population comes with more collisions.  Ever increasing speed, inattentive driving, and less and less dirt roads have lead to more in my opinion.  Reaction time is paramount to Avoiding deer car collisions.  
    • That part of 94 to Monti is bad for road kills! 🙁
