Man, the walleye fishing is HOT right now in Goose Lake! I recommend heading that direction before the fishing slows down in the fall and winter. I guess this lake has an awesome summer bite and is a great lake to be out on. Good luck everybody!

After reading the reports I spoke with a few friends and we decided to make the trip and will be fishing Goose Lake this weekend. So far it will be Allen, Dirty, MossyMO, Fox Island Outfitter, Walleye Monkey, Tonts, bowhuntn and 3boys. We only have 3 boats set up for us so far, but if more people want to show up, the more the merrier! Sorry for the last minute invite.

I'm planning on going as well, however I can't decide if we should bring two fishing boats or just bring my 22' pontoon? We've got 9 guys so far, if we get anymore we'll just bring the toon and a trough to keep all our EYES in. When you see us out there come say hello....

I am glad to see that you guys are going out there and utilizing the resource thast the Game and Fish Department allows us to enjoy year round. I have heard nor seen anything from them that would lead anyone to believe this is a locals only or winter only fishery. Catch 'em while the catching is good! Wish I could go with!

yeah, I'm in. I'll ask StevePike if he and his family can make it up there. I don't think they have motor restictions at all...at least I hope not because I'm bringing the big boat up. I also plan on bringing the jetskis so we can tear around the lake after taking a few limits of fish. This is going to be SWEET!

Buckmaster81, do you have an email address? We'll give you the details.

One step ahead of you guys. Just got the boat hooked up and kids packed for the weekend. Wife is just packing a cooler of bevvies and we are on our way today. Should be frying fish by evening. 4 limits a day for three days, eating all we can, I will watching for you guys stop on in and have a cold one. I will probably cook up some extra fish this evening so don't worry about supper, just take off after work and stop by my campsite and I feed you. FISH FOR EVERYONE.

dirty, do they have motor restrictions? The two boats we planned on bringing have 200 & 225hp engines. Well they both have kickers on em' If we can't fire up the main source. If we decide to bring the toon instead I'll have my buddy pull up my two Seadoo's and we'll have a riot. Do they allow waterskiing on this lake?

Remember to bring the wives and kids. I know I asked Grandma to come with, but she said here arthritis was acting up. So I guess crazy Uncle Kenny is coming in her place.....

Hey, I just confirmed with a few of my friends from Ellendale that this lake really is on fire! Outstanding!! They said they would meet us there. So that makes 2 more boats and 7 more guys. Hell, this is going to be one hell of a party!

BadBoyz, I'm not sure about the waterskiing but from the way it sounds, we are going to need something to do after we limit out. I'll do some checking.

Just talked to the ole man too, he's in and a couple of his retirement buddies are in too. Hope they allow camping, cuz if the fishing is that good, I'm setting up for a few days.

If they are biting as well as they say, I may just have to throw my size restriction ethics out the window for the weekend.

Jeez rutn4fun, ya gotta save some for the next meal. Or catch more I guess.

So, does anyone know just how big these are on the average?


I figure I should start preparing myself for the upcoming rules changes and need to know if a 48 quart cooler will suffice, or if I need to bring the 80 quart cooler to bring a few fish home in.

Hey can The crew and myself come? If so we will have 2 more boats, 6 or 7 kids and 7 or 8 adults. Might even consider bringing the jetski and tubes if enough are interested. Thanks, and let me know if I can party too. Fished it many times in the winter, and have an idea where the hot spots might be.

We just got back with another limit and the party has already started up there. On top of that, we used the smaller walleyes (20") as bait to catch our limit of 50lb snapping turtles as well. Its a great time for the whole family. Enjoy.
