Eagle Lake???

11 posts in this topic

Well the time has come for me to finally have 1 full week of of work. Worked 8 years and this is my 2nd full week off. So i and another couple are paking up the kids and rods and going to the cabin on Eagle Lake that we rented. Any idea on what to expect for fishing?? Anyone been on this lake before. Targeting of course Walleyes...put panfish are on my mind for a shorelunch too. Any suggestions would be great..thank you!

Nice clear lake. Not a whole lot of varied structure, but there is some. Due to its small size, you should be able to chase down some gills in short order.

For panfish - treat it like any other local lake. This time of year, try and find some cabbage and fish off the edges.

Walleyes - I have no clue this time of year. I would start working some of the breaks, and maybe pull some cranks after dark.

One of only a few lakes in the world that has freshwater coral....

Little factoid of the day. smile.gif

Yep! Very popular with scuba divers. The coral beds are protected with underwater fencing.

I never knew that about Eagle....how deep are these coral beds?? i am no diver but since the water is so clear if they are shallow enough, can they be viewed from the boat?

IIRC, they are in 30 feet or more.

I fished Eagle lake for a week (vacation) and managed one walleye, very slow. The fish was decent size 18" but was a bit on the skinny side. It looked like it had been starving itself due to the weather? Decided to release it and hope it gains some weight. About the coral, does anyone know where it's located? I have a camera and would like to see it. I never knew it was fenced in.

Mid lake somewhere. Not quite sure myself. Perhaps some local divers will chime in?

In the middle at approx 42-44 ft. You cant see it from a boat and depending onthe amount of sunlight, its hard to see when your right on top of it.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
