Elbow Lake Info Needed

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone fished elbow lake in the grand marais area off of the gunflint trail? I've never taken a boat on the lake but have caught some nice perch and a few hammer handle northerns from shore. I was thinking about finally taking my boat out there this summer, was wondering if anyone could tell me a few things about the lake?

I have never fished the lake but have heard that it is pretty easy to catch good numbers of average size walleyes and bass. I would troll spinners and crawlers around the weed edges, that seems to work best on most of the lakes up there.

You might want to change the name of this thread, it sounds like someone fell through the ice or something like that.

I've heard that it can be a good lake to fish but watch out for rocks by the surface. Particularly if lake levels don't get back to normal this spring.

Good call on the name change. Anyway, the DNR shows there are no bass in the lake, but mentioned there may be a few in there. And I've also heard the rocks can be bad, but what lake up there doesn't have that problem?

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
