It's a gorgeous lake. Very scenic. Beautiful water. Bigger fish in there. But, it's tough to fish. If you want to catch fish, there are other lakes in the area that are better.

went up for opening weekend and didn't to to bad. Water was 42 with some spots being 45 to 46. Very very slow bite. All weekend we caught 6 fish. 4 pike,1 smallmouth and 1 walleye. Conditions were terrible to stay anchored in but we made do. Hopefully the water warms up by memorial week
My dad was fishing Star Lake yesterday afternoon (3/9), he was targeting perch and said it was slow if anybody is wondering, anyway hedd lost his rod case somewhere coming off the lake. If anyone has found one please PM me, i can give the location he was fishing and where he was parked plus describe the case and contents. Thank you.
I also have some bad news for people that thought that the weeds are coming back. The rusty crayfish population is going back up. I trap them every year and have a big boil. The past year I got next to none this July I got 50 in 2 days. No it is not as bad as it was 5 years ago but its still bad. So if you do catch one kill it.
Fished Star over labor day. LOTS I mean LOTS of bass largemouth and smallmouth. 1 walleye some muskies followed in gills. Lots of rock bass and small bluegill. I even trolled crawler harnesses by the shores line by the camp grounds and only picked up 1 tiny small mouth and lost a bigger 1 that jumped and I had my drag set to tight so the line snapped. When looking for weed I found a big pod of bass anchored and landed 1 then lost another. I even caught a 5 pound 19 inch football off the back of our beached boat. Largemouth were on a wacky rigged yum dinger and smallmouth were on the same thing but by wood and largemouth were by weeds.
Fished Star Lake over the weekend. Walleye fishing was very slow for us, but we did manage a few. It's been a strange spring. Ice didn't clear out until May 11th and then the really hot weather two weeks later over the Memorial day weekend shot the water temps up to almost 70. Damn rock bass and short northerns were hanging in the weed beds and stealing alot of our bait. They need to be thinned out, especially all those rock bass. They're everywhere. Saw a large dead musky foating on the surface. Looked like someone hit it with their boat prop. Had a big gash on it's back. What a shame.
Anyone know how thick the ice is?
Anyone been out lately?
