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.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
