Heard several people saying the fish are fairly consistent here. I tried it a couple weekends ago, the lovely Sunday with 50 mile an hour winds and didn't see anything/nor catch anything.

What part of the lake and what times have there been activity? Bait, etc.

Only been out there that one time.

I've done most of my fishing after dark, but places that have been good in the dark have also usually been good in the morning and evening.

City park in 12 feet has been solid, but don't expect a limit. Memorial point has been about as good, fish about 200 yards off the point. I've tried the Sandy Shore area and didn't catch anything. In the past, though I haven't fished it yet this winter, the area off of Kampeska Lodge has been good. Find the humps.

Bait: If you use regular minnows, you'll have little fish annoying you fairly regularly. Try shiners, chubs, or suckers on at least a few of your lines. Two minnows on one hook usually outfishes one minnow 4 to 1.

Good luck!

Thanks for the post. I'm not really familiar with the lake at all, so where are these places in relation to the HWY?

The one time I was out there, I took the access from the S/E side I believe, just up to the left off the HWY.

Kampeska has several places to access the lake. If you're going out of City Park, the access is just off Highway 20 as you're heading toward Wallace. If you head farther west, there is another access just off Highway 20. There are several other places to get on the lake. One is at Kampeska Lodge, if the there are no heaves there this year. Check with the Proud Angler bait shop (Highway 20) or River City on Highway 212 and they'll help you out. While you're there, check out Pelican on the west end and see if you can find those fish.

City Park is a good place to go on. There's a pretty bad snowdrift in front of the boatlanding, but look about 20 feet south of the ramp and you can drive right down the beach, its totally clear of snow.

The access areas on the north side of the lake are a no-go because of heaves. This includes Kampeska Lodge and the sailboat landing.

Memorial Park, on the west side of the lake, is ok to go on, but a little bumpy.

Sandy Shore, on the south end, is great to drive on.

Stay away from the major point on the east side and the rockpile, which is near there. There are springs in this area and people often go through. Get a map and ask someone at a baitsop to show you where not to go. You'll also find the access spots much easier with a map.

This info is from 1/27/07.

The Prop does the weigh-ins for the Ike's tourney - in the 3 years we have had this one it has always been the Lodge and on the ice...

Hope to see you there!

    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.
