apparently it has been really good, because no one has answered your post. that usually happens in this forum when lakes are producing.

My parents have had a place on Elbow for years, the walleye fishing was great in the mid to late 90's. Since then the fishery has really changed to a Bass dominanted lake. Which for me is sad to see, I'm a walleye guy. If you like to catch bass this is a great lake. A ton of small pike as well that usually provide good action all year. With that being said, I usually can locate a few walleyes given enough time. I will be out tonight trying to locate a few eyes. If you do manage to catch some eyes please release the larger fish, as we usually do bump into some 26" to 29" fish every year.

hey, had a buddy fishing up there last week and they did really well on deep weed edges 18 to 20 feet on and around points near the camp ground. he said crawlers were the ticket, also caught a ton of nice bass. Jonah

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
