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.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
