Fish Trap lake questions????

8 posts in this topic

Hey Folks,

I have done a little research on the DNR website regarding this lake for a possible bass opener. What I'm looking for is your favorite spots...Just kidding. Anyways I'm wondering if this lake holds allot of shallow fish and how much "slop" fishing is to be had on this lake. If this is a fun lake with numbers I might be interested to run over there just for the morning othewise I'm going to stick to my origanal plan...Gull Lake/WFC. Any help or imput from anybody familiar with this lake would be great, fear not that I be pound it all summer long because soon as Muskie season opens I put my bass gear away.

If you feel more comfortable to emailing some info see my email below.

Thanks,

Meat-Run

There is some slop to be had later on in the year. It is a good lake to fish docks. I do a lot of early season crappie fishing on FishCrap and have caught a lot of bass. Nothing too huge but there are a ton of 2 pounders in there. Your best bet for that lake is July or later. When the pads are good and thick. It is off to the big pond after the bronzies for me this weekend.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!
