Hi guys, I'm brand new to this site.  I've been fishing lake Nokomis since I was born (I'm 32 yrs old).  We were up over the 4th and had some decent walleye action as well as a lot of small northern in the shallow bays.  Also caught a few smallies as well.  Most walleye came from 2 spots mainly, a large bay on the southeast part of the lake by the railroad tracks as well as what I call "the big rock" which is a large rock area marked with a bouey just around the southeast corner of the inlet if driving toward Shaffers/Bootleggers/Windmill from the south part of the lake.  Also did some musky fishing in the "center bar", "grassy island" and on bridge lake but had only 1 follow up to the boat.  Also, my family and I have 4 lakefront lots and about 9 backlots available for sale in a large bay on the NW part of the lake if heading toward the Tomahawk River.  It's all wooded and risen off the lake but they are large lots and some beutiful homes have been built in the bay so far.  It's about 1/3 occupied currently so if anyone on here knows of anyone looking to build a place on Nokomis, please let me know.

Im just back from staying in the same area you are going to be in.  I fished the bay to the south east of the Windmill Ice cream shop.  Had a few pike chase a chatterbait and hooked into some fantastic bluegills.

Ive fished the bay to the south west of the ice cream shop and found some decent smallie action there.

Enjoy your stay up there.  We had a great time and the kids were sad to go home.

The St. Croix Rod factory is about an hour away.  The tour alone is worth the trip.  It was amazing to see how much goes into their rods.

Bt the way, the comment below about the ice cream is true.  Their "single" scoop is really three.  After going there four nights in a row I need to hit the gym!

Hello all.  I'm new to Lake Link and this is my first post, so excuse me if I putting this in the wrong place, but I was hoping to get a little friendly advice.  I am heading up to Nokomis in Mid July and heading up with some little kids.  I want to make sure I get them on some fish,  and would like to get them on some bass or northern.  I'm sure we will panfish, but would like to get them on something with a little more fight.  We are staying close to the windmill ice cream parlor, and looking for any tips or tricks that would help aid me in having a great vacation.  They are pretty patient for 6-7 year olds, but catching fish is always good for the younger kids.  Thanks again in advance for any help.

I am looking for a reliable fishing guide to take me out on Nokomis for a day . My goal is to Learn the lake, not to take a pile of fish home.

I want to learn how to fish this body of water with its ever changing water fluctuations

Catch and release is absolutely fine

The water level is pretty high so the lake is basically safe. Stay out in the middle. Rock piles and shallow areas are marked.

For panfish I would hang around the bridge near the ice cream place (Windmill), or just look for green weeds extending out from shore and throw nightcrawlers in tight.

Definitely take the kids to the Windmill, but remember, one scoop is like a quart of ice cream.
