Evergreen Lake Fishng Reports

Recommended Posts

alex1

Hey guys and gals jsut wondering if anyone has any info on Evergreen lake in the schoolcraft reserve. I've checked out the DNR web page to check out the net checks and all but was wondering if anyone has fished it, and what to expect. Don't need any specific spots, jsut what the fishing is like.

I'm looking at renting a cabin on the lake and looking for any knowledge that anyone would like to share.

Thanks in advance for any info. cool

You will primarily catch 12" - 18" northerns, bluegills, crappies, sunnies, & an occasional walleye pretty much in that order but you may have figured that out by looking at the dnr site. What prompted you to rent on the lake?

It's no real secret but I would start by fishing out by that point. If you like Rock Bass you may be in for a treat \:\) I caught perch mostly but I know there are other species as well.

We were actually looking at a sight for Leech lake and one of the resorts has a cabin on Evergreen that they rent out. It was secluded as far as what the website said so we decided to give it a try. THe price was right and we are always looking for a new place to try for ice fishing, the three guys and our wives are going to try it out this spring and see if it's worth while to go back for ice fishing as the cabin is rented out year round.

Are there any size to the bluegills and crappies? HOw about the perch?

The bluegills are plentiful about the size of your hand or smaller. I have caught some crappies that were nice sized but not as many of them. Most of the perch that I have caught have been smaller than I would consider keeping. Forgot to mention there are a few smallies and large mouth too. I haven't done any ice fishing on the lake just summer. Are you bringing a boat or using the one provided?

We're just going to use the one provided being the access according to the owner isn't real great. Is this true, or should I bring my own boat? I've got a 16.5' Fishhawk, with a 40h.p. motor.

True, landing is not very good that is why I asked. Small fishing boats can be launched easily but larger boats can be difficult. I would say your boat is borderline might be a bit difficult but could be done. Depending when you are planning on going if the water is high with the spring run off could be a little easier.???

my grandparents had a cabin on evergreen and nobody could figure out the walleyes. FISH IT AT NIGHT!!! from end of May to End of June, troll a tennessee shad husky jerk in about 10-14 fow. go extremely slow, .6, .7mph and twitch that bait long lined.... that water is so clear that the night time is key. Im only giving this info up because we dont have the cabin up there anymore, good luck!!! I averaged about 5 walleyes an outing, caught them up to 7 pounds

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.

      Starting a new thread for 2018 Pike River Hatchery progress. No new news today. Cliff

      Don't mean to pick a scab here, but the mods have asked for more engagement from members, so I'm trying. I've never been up to VNP, but am looking at camping on KAB in early June. Would be heading up from the Twin Cities. Neither my buddy or I have been up there before, and we would not be going if we didn't know ahead of time we had a campsite reserved.  Without that assurance we would just stay at one of our families cabins in the Brainerd Lakes area instead.

      The Pike River is almost wide open today! It will not be long now before they start the walleye netting! Cliff

      If I were you I’d run only what the manufacturer recommends. If it’s a Suzuki brand lube I’d only use that. For peace of mind and if anything were to happen you can say your were running the recomnded fluids. Also your local dealer should have everything you would need and can help you out if you have any questions. Not sure about the other fluids you mentioned but that’s what I would do if I were you. Good luck

      I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions?

      Hi Guys - believe it or not I just realized there are all these great boat-in camping opportunities on Kab and other lakes. My buddy and I are looking at reserving a site in early June, and since we're so late to the game our options are fairly limited. I've read through this thread to get a little idea of what's what on Kab, and none of the ones mentioned are currently available the weekends we're looking at going . But it's good to know Moxie island is about 2 miles from the Visitor Center, which gives me a frame of reference for how far some of the other sites are. The ones that are available tend to be open a lot - and I'm not sure if it's because of their location or quality of the site. For what it's worth it would be 2 guys, using my buddies 17 ft boat, and ideally going after walleye. Are any of these sites ones you wouldn't send your worst enemy to? Cutover Island South K6
      Northland K24 - (this one is hardly ever booked)
      Windigo K35
      LaBounty's PT K14
      Grassy Island K9
      Peterson PT K25 (realize it would be better to use the Ash River launch for this location)

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run
