Fishing Square Lake

Recommended Posts

I don't have much experience fishing trout through the ice but would like to try. I live near Square Lake and was wondering if anyone had any tips on where to fish (depth, etc..) and what lures and bait work best. Also is there a bettertime of day to fish? I tried fishing one day last week and was skunked.

Im going out there saturday morning. Im going to set out some tips for northern and also jig for trout/pannies. Ill let you know if I have any luck.

Does anyone know where the sunken boats/airplane tail and platforms are. I would think this should be some sweet structure for ice fishing.

Last time I was out there was last spring, caught several small northern and bass. The water is amazing on this lake.

How was the fishing? I do know Square was netted for notherns in the 70s 80s ? to stock other lakes with big fish, so the trout stocking could procede! I beleive they ruined a great fishery!!!

Tried the hump on the west end with tip ups and jiggin for anything, we didnt see one fish on the flasher or the tipups. After that we went to the bend on the north end and saw some large crappie on the camera and one northern. I had one hit but it got off and didnt see anything else. We were out for an entire day. It was pretty sad. -(Contact Us Please)

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
