Bobber Down and I are going camping around Lake Byllesby this weekend. We were wondering if it is a good fishing lake? What can you catch there? We wont have a boat so we will be fishing from shore. Is it worth bringing our fishing poles? I tried to look on the DNR website but it is completely shut down due to the donkeys! Thanks for your help
I have no idea whats in the lake but after looking at the map there is a peninsula that comes out on the east end of the lake. If you can get to it there looks like a real nice drop off right off of the west side of that peninsula. Could be worth throwing some jigs off into the deep water and then working them up that break. You could also throw out some sort of lindy rig type set up and fish the bottom. Kick back with a beer and let a leech or minnow due the work.
If you have an hour or so in the evening it might be a fun spot to spend a little time.
It's your typical southern Minnesota lake. It has a little bit of everything. I've seen some nice walleyes come out of there. Surface traffic is very busy on the weekends. I agree with no fish, toss 'er out and let it sit. Who knows?
OnSaturday night we went out fishing and didnt catch a thing. We went to a small point out on the lake. There were some other people fishing there and they caught a few catfish.
Sunday we went right out in front of our campsite. There was LOTS of fish jumping and swimming on the surface. They looked like some nice big fish. We are thinking they were carp. We ended up catching about 5 large mouth bass. They are fun to catch but I would MUCH rather be reeling in the Walleyes then a fighting bass!
