Lake Elysian

9 posts in this topic

How is the walleye and northern bite on elysian? First time on the lake and was wondering whats spots would be worth looking for! I dont have a wheeler or snowmobile so it has to somewhat be a reasonable walking distance from shore! Any help would be appreciated!

Try Loon in Waseca. The fish on Elysian are out aways, or off private area's. Real hit or miss with dropping pressure. You should target crappies now and wait for the pressure to get around 30.1

I've been wondering for a couple years what was up with Loon. Back about 10-15 years ago the sunnies in there were huge. Anyone know what if anything is in there?

The pike are strong ther, but there are alot of small fish as well. This is a panfish lake. Lake Francis is where i would go for pike, Wait I pick Devils Lake ND!!!

TO be honest with you you would be wasting your time going to loon lake in Waseca for pike because the population has been dwindeling for the past two years. I speared out there two winters ago and did quite well and tried it the next year as well but never speared a single one. I also tried it casting spoons and whatnot this past summer for snotters and came up with nothing. I am sure there are a few good ones in there yet but there can't be many. might be worth it for gills though or crappies.

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
