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

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..
