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..

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
