Farm island lake


Recommended Posts

I would like to see what Farm Island looks like without water. Depending on what you are after. Pike we got throwing spinners and cranks in 12-15' outside weed edges. Bass we used frogs in the shallows early and blue black jigs with craw trailer and watermelon senkos wacky rigged out off weed edges in 8-12'.

Walleye fisherman were on the edges of most of the deeper drop offs some of which are pretty steep 18-24' The person I talked with was using spinner crawler harness.

Small pike all over the place.

I hit Borden the other half of the day bigger pike and small mouth there

Good Luck.

I was out there a few weeks ago for a couple hours in the evening. Ended up with a lot of pike off the weedlines and a couple decent walleyes off the islands throwing crankbaits right around and after sundown. There is a slot for walleye on that lake (I think all 16-19 must be released). We ended up throwing back the fish we caught.

When we were up there, the whole lake was no wake zone due to high water. The Sheriff was out the enforcing quite strictly.

Parents used to have a place on Farm Island so I've fished it often. Pretty lake and the fishing is pretty good. Its known more as a walleye lake with some really big fish pulled through the ice each winter. Tons of snake northern everywhere but has a decent bass population too. Weedlines in the bays produced for me using tubes, jigs, and t-rigs. Sunken islands everywhere that can produce mid-summer as well. Never caught a bass out of there bigger than 18", but stopped trying once I realized I could drive 10 minutes and be on Mille Lacs.
