chris2689m, Welcome to My Fishing Pals, we hope you stick around a while!! Sorry I don't know anything about Forest Lake, I've only fished it twice and that was through the ice trying to win some money.
When I fish F-Lake, I usually launch from North Shore Blvd on the third basin and fish the west side of the third basin. I've caught my share of largemouth and pike there with artificials (plugs and spoons). I was there two weeks ago and hooked a 41" 'ski and had another nice one follow my lure to the boat. I did the figure 8 ... and figure 4 ... and figure 37 ... couldn't get the bugger to bite!
thanks these forums really help. ive been fishing muskie sence augest i got one to the baot and ever sence ive been hooked. i usually fish bald eagle but i havent seen anything sence augest. we were up at bone lake last weekend and had 7 follow ups and i had 2 hits but they missed the hooks both times. one was around 43 inchs and it folowed my figure 8 it was really cool. so if i launch at lake side park do i want to take a left or right off the boat launch ive never fished this lake before so i dont really know the weed lines and structure. but thanks for allyour help
The launch I usually use is on the east side of Lake #3. The city park launch is on the west side of Lake #1.
The place I'm talking about is the south side of lake #3. As the lake slopes up, there is a nice weed line running east-west that I work. I usually start a little deep than then work my way toward the weeds as the sun gets lower in the sky.
I've also had some fair luck along the edge of the deep hole in lake #2.
thanks for all your help ill keep you posted on how i do on sunday. hope i at least see something. what do you use for lures. i know top water is out of season. i like the shalow divers and the bull dogs. they seem to work for alot of people.
well i was on forest lake today and im impresed with the lake, the structer, weed lines and the and the variety of what you can fish. i only cought one 25 inch pike. no muskie but it was a good day and being out on the lake was just nice. ill put up a pic of my fish later

People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
