Ann Lake

5 posts in this topic

I was thinking about giving this lake near zimmerman a try sometime in the coming weeks. I know nothing about it except what I've seen on the DNR website. I'm always a little leary going on the ice of a lake I've never been to. Is there anything I should know about it's ice (areas to stay away from, etc) or is the ice normally pretty good? Also, is this lake even worth giving a try? Thanks

Smallie Huggin has some recent info on the lake that might be of interest.

I'll hunt him down.

It has been good for pike in the past allthough that was about 7 years ago when the last time I fished it. Tip up and a sucker in about 10ft on the south side worked for me.

I fish from sundown till midnight on little elk lake near zimmerman. earlyer in the season the fishing was really good limit of crappies and a couple eyes every night. The fishing has slowed down a bit now but still a good time.

Birch Lake, which is just across 15 from Ann had 16 inches yesterday and Ann usually has the same amount of ice.

A lot of Sunnies near the sunken island that you can see on the DNR lake map. You will have to sort through them but you can probably get a couple of meals. There have been some nights where the most traffic on the lake is after dark as it is a really clear lake.

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
