Lake Edward in Summer

Recommended Posts

irishjigs

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.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

      Who’s worried about a jacket showing proof of action when the catching is that good?!
