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

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
