Little Elk

2 posts in this topic

Anybody care to share any basic info about this lake in the Zimmerman area? I notice a big cluster of permanents where I assume people are trying to get as near the crappie hole as possible. Is it worth hitting this lake in the evening? Any walters to work for on the lake?

I haven't fished the lake in a month but here is my two cents worth. I usually fish the first point from the landing and dont bother going down to the big city on the second point. I have had good success with decent size bluegills and crappies off the first point. I would start in 10' and work deeper, I think the max. depth is 15'. I usually put up a tipup and have caught a occasional eye. Check out the east/central forum for more posts on the lake. early in the year I was fishing close to the house with the wilds logo on it but I think he has moved the house since then.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.

      Funny you say that, Bassthumb.  The slow bite under our house was last week...my dad was up Tuesday and Wednesday this week and he lost count of how many fish they caught.  We've been on a very inconsistent bite this year, though...every time we think about moving the house, we have a day or two of especially good bite before it slows down again.
