Owatonna/Faribault Spearing Lake?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know of decent lakes to spear in the Owatonna/Faribault area? I usually spear up north, but I am going to meet my brother, who is in Albert Lea for some quality time on the ice.

I know people don't really like to share lakes, so feel free to pm me if you want me to keep it secret!

Thanks a lot!

Thanks BTH! I noticed you are in Waterville, is Tetonka a decent lake to try?

Yes tetonka is good spearing lake, it gets lots of of holes cut thought, been slow as of late. I hope it turns around tomorrow for the contest though.

Are you gong to let someone else place this year?

Yes others placed this year in some classes, it wasn't from a lack of effort though. I tipped 2 nice walleyes over on the hook sets, a little too strong I guess. Not use to watching them inhale a jig and shiner thought a spear hole with time running out. I lost a smaller eye at the hole, need a larger landing net or a gaf hook in the house.

behindthehead still has that lucky horseshoe in this back pocket though. After spearing a 27"in the morning, he and a few friends went tip-up fishing on Washington, he some how hooked a 38" in the side of the head and it wouldn't come up the hole, so one guy stuck his whole arm down the hole to grab the fish, you know you never get lucky and get them on the first try, I think it took 3 times to grab it. Any way they took first place again by more then 7# over 2nd place. It was fun day.

i actually checked cannon friday. its very dirty. thats been the problem this year there are only a fue local lakes that are clear enough to spear.

my only advice is to check the lake before you go through the work of getting a house out there.
