Pomme De Terre

Anyone fish Pomme De Terre by Elbow Lake on the opener? I haven't fished it for a couple of years and I'm wondering if there's still a Walleye bite there early in the year.

Ok, nobody fished it on opener. Has anyone fished it in the last couple of years? It used to yield some major league crappies and good walleyes through about memorial day. After the 1st week of June or so, the fishing gets a bit tougher due to the heavy weed growth and the lake's shallowness. The Bass fishing on the Bass opener used to be good too.

snagged again i havent been up there yet this year. my wifes family owns the old cabin on the north end of the lake near the river inlet. my brotherinlaw was up there this weekend but i havent talked to him yet. its been my experiance to that this is a early lake i dont know where they go in the summer proably right in to the weeds which makes it tough because the whole lake tends to get alot of weeds without any definate drop offs to concentrate on. the drop offs that are in the lake dont seem to produce for me later in the year anyway.i might get to sneek up there next weekend for a day or to and i will let you know what i get. my brotherinlaw will be there next weekend for sure with my son so i might be able to pry some information out of them if i dont get up. good fishing.

swampman, I think I remember which cabin it is that your wife's family owns. My dad used to own a cabin that was next to the old Derby's resort. You're right, the weeds are really tough on the lake, and the fishing becomes very difficult in the summer. The walleyes are tough even in the fall for some reason. The best way I found to catch walleyes in the summer was to slowly long line troll a floating rapala just beneath the surface at night. That method worked well enough to catch a 6 1/2 pounder there one summer. I may give it a go over memorial day weekend. If I do, I'll let you know how I did.

Swampman, Fished Pomme De Terre for 3 hours on Sunday. Only caught 1 walleye and a bunch of small Northerns. Had we stayed there a few more hours, we would have probably piced up a couple more walleyes. Weeds aren't bad yet, and the water level is good.

Swampman, Sounds like they did pretty well. An 8 pounder is mighty impressive! I would be interested to hear where they caught them. My email address is timbeltz@charter.net. I fished some of the old haunts I remembered from years ago. The spot I was really hopeful about was an area just out from the boat launch on the west side towards the north end of the lake. There's sort of a groove in the bottom running parallel to shore thats about 12 feet deep. We used to catch some nice walleyes there, including a bunch one winter. Didn't get so much as a bite there.
The walleye we did catch was off the point just across the lake from the old resort. Sort of southeast of the old resort. There's a big home on that point and a nice cabin down near the water.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.
