LAKE ELMO

5 posts in this topic

Anyone fishin' out there? I've been on lake Jane lately and been doing good on the smaller pike during the day and some nicer crappies after dark. I was just looking for a spot to get a couple of trout mixed in with the crappies. Any help would be appreciated.

I'd look for them suspended over deep water (50 ft or so). They stock adult trout so they're pretty good sized...use a large crappie minnow or chub under a tip up...you'll probably get some nice pike too

What depth were you getting crappies at on Jane? I've been out there a few times this winter and had little luck fishing 14 to 17 feet. There's been a few shacks just off the launch that have hung in all year. They must be getting something.

Did anyone see my ice shack fly across the lake and flip during wednesday's gail? That would have been fun to watch. Me trying to reassemble will also be fun to watch.

I've been fishing the crappies out in 30 ft. Allthough the bigger ones have come out of nowhere and hammered anything I've put down there about 6 ft under the ice. Kinda weird I never even marked them on the vex, just dropped the line down and they were slamming a minnow on any jig I put down. It only lasts about 15 minutes, but it is a blast. I tried moving to different holes after they stopped biting, but nothing.

Anyone know if you can drive out on this lake? Anyone know of any spots to avoid? I was thinking of trying it today. Thanks for any info..

      As far as I know every vechicle at every access has to pay a road fee .

      Was wondering what the ice conditions are after the rain on Monday?

      I use my 1660 Lund Pro-V Tiller for fishing Superior all of the time. I have 2' of track on both sides to hold my 4 aluminum rod holders and my triple trees. If you start using magnum dipsys with the ring they can pull hard enough to break most plastic rod holders. In the spring you are basically fishing the top 15' with plugs so any rod holder will do. Once you start trying to get to 40' and beyond is when you need to beef things up. I also have a mast and use the single big boards that Marine General sells for getting a good spread with you plugs. Once summer rolls around I will use Yellow Birds with 5 colors of lead on the outside  and dipsy's with 65lb Power Pro or steel depending on what depth I am trying to achieve to pull spoons or flies.

      I see that the Royal Dutchman website had a blurb a couple days (2/17) ago that said nothing was happening yet, they also don't know how thick the ice is.  As usual hoping for a long spring season before it closes for walleye.  On a positive note most of the snow must have already melted with the record warmth so maybe won't be so much to cause runoff later on?
