Lake Harriet Report

Recommended Posts

Walleye71

Was out in the snow today. Right off the weed edge. 7 keeper sized crappies. They came in waves. The weather system didn't help the bite any. There must be a solid foot of ice on the west side of the lake. Didn't think there would be that much, only brought the hand auger. Power auger for sure next time. The wind had really blown most of the snow off the lake prior to this storm. Was surprised by the amount of ice.

Walleye71,

Nice job. How big were the keepers? The last few years I haven't found any crappies over 7 inches...

Thanks,

John

Any walleyes over 13 inches? You hit the west side?

I've caught some smaller walleyes and crappies this winter, but nothing great. All on the west side.

First time user on this forum guys/gals. Tons of good information and helpful tips to be had.

Anyway, I hit Harriet this weekend after not have ice fished for about 20 years and got 2 nice eyes (15.5") and a northern pike of all things. The fish came right on the weed edge in 13' of water.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
