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 crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
