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)

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
