Lake Edward in Summer

3 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I've fished Lake Edward once before in late July, but I was hoping to get input on what to expect in the last week of June. I traditionally fish Mille Lacs for walleyes and occasionally smallmouth. Can I expect to fish with rigs and slip floats like Mille Lacs? Are there other applications used? How about other species of fish? I'm stocking up this week on the fishing supplies and any help would be appreciated.

Thanks All,

Gregg

There are definately some nice walleyes in there. I had a slow winter out there compared to last, though. Rigs and slip will both work, but don't rule out cranks either. In June I guess my choices would be Lindy's,then cranks, then bobbers if you can find them on concise structure locations which aren't as common as ML.

You won't have any trouble finding northerns in Edwards usually. Both the bass and panfish populations and crazy in there too. The panfish can be very nice sized, but I've found them difficult to locate after spring. I know they are obviously in there, but I don't spend much time looking after walleye season opens.

Hope this helps, good luck.

A couple years back, I was able to find some huge sun fish about mid June...NW corner of the lake off the reeds in about 12-15' with flu-flus tipped with crawlers.

If you can fish walleye, you should be able to pick them up on the lake. Find some structure, and ask at the bait shop the depth for that particular time of the year, and you should be in business. Not as easy to fish as Pelican, but usually can find something.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
