Potato Lake Action

9 posts in this topic

We will be on Potato from the 8th to the 15th. We mainly go for panfish and eyes, but like to try our luck at Northerns. Any suggestions?

it was tough guiding for me the last two mornings, managed walleyes both days but I really had to work for them. we caught our fish on crawlers in around 17 feet.

I was at my parents since tues and did great with the panfish. Eye fishing a little slower, picked up a couple smaller northerns trolling cranks. Mixed in a really nice crappie, but just the one with lots of nice sunnies.

Can anyone tell me if you can get a 18ft Lund boat between Potato and Eagle Lake?

Thanks

Thanks, I have been told that a larger boat might have a hard time in the channel between these lakes. I am coming up on July 21st and staying on Eagle Lake and did want to trailer the boat back and forth from Potato Lake if I did not have to.

Jonah, I will be stoppong in to see you sometime that week.

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
