Spider Lake offers some of the best northern pike fishing in Minnesota. This naturally fed, 1,392-acre lake gets up to 36 feet deep in its deepest spot. You’ll have plenty of inlets and bays to explore along this lake’s length. The Department of Natural Resources manages several different species at Spider Lake, including Northern pike, muskellunge, and crappie (primary) and largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and black crappy (secondary). Other species here include perch and bluegill. Fishermen pull many large pike from this lake each year, making Spider Lake a popular fishing destination. In fact, it’s not uncommon to catch 5- to 10-pound pike, with an occasional fisherman reeling in a 15 pounder.
