Lake Jefferson Fishing reports (the eastside)

Recommended Posts

Froggy4371

Whats up with all the houses on the eastside of west jefferson. I have not seen that many out there in 10-12 years. Are they actually catching fish? Last time I had my house out there was the year the lake froze out so that is not a good sign. With all this snow it could be tough on the lakes in the area again this winter.

Well if by nice you mean 7-8" crappies OK then. I my folks have a cabin on the lake and I fish it hard in summer and there are alot of crappies but very few go bigger then 8". I just have not seen that many houses out there for years.

I will probally try it here in the next week but I can not really believe they are getting "big" crappies.

Thanks for the info guys.

Slimers. That is what is always caught where the houses are. Some eater eyes in the mix. I used to live out there and fished all over it. It is a tough one unless you like slime and bass.

      Oh I forgot to mention is was b*#%hing cold.  Minus 33 Saturday morning and -36 on Sunday morning.  We had to leave one sled behind at the cabin on Saturday and it took forever to get the Solo started on the auger.  Maybe time for an electric.     Nice niece catching day Pro-V!!!

      My niece got a 28" walleye and a 44" sturgeon the same day a couple days ago.

      That is what we experienced too.  Three of us were up, fished Thurs, Fri, and Sat.  Lots of little ones, sniffers, the type that keep you busy, wear your arm out jigging on.  We only kept 15" eyes and 14" sauger or better and ended up just short of our limit.  Many 14" eyes released along with 13" sauger.  Others indicated a tough bite as well.  There was one group in the cleaning shack that had some, maybe a 1/4th of their catch, in the 16 to 19 inch range.  We fish with fatheads and some frozen emeralds.  Ice thickness-wise, the auger head was just above the shavings pile, so the ice is growing quickly.  Snow on the lake is hard.  Good Luck.

      😫 boy i feel the love here!!!!!!!! interseted to hear what this additional snow did to the lakes!!!!

      That is correct.  We were just up at LOW out of Zippel Bay and as far as we could tell, eveybody up there was out of live shiners.  We were able to stop on the way and pick up live emerald shiners @ Big Dicks Bait Shop in Kelliher.  This was on the 17th, so if you go that route, I'd call first to make sure they still had any.  Fishing was a little slow for us, but it was right when the cold front came screaming in, good luck!

      Thanks for reply, problem is red door isnt letting anyone with wheel house or skid house out to the flat or past the heave,yet. So everyone is kind of pilled up on the first/second breaks. I am thinking once they start allowing more travel it will start to thin out by me. I may give it another week or so and see how it looks. 
    • gunner55
      Yeah, you better stay home, smurfy. 😉 Probably catch more. 😀  We got  a lot here too. NOT!!!  2 1/2 - 3" at most

      The key is emerald shiners. The ones you can get in the cities are not the same as emeralds up there. Frozen ones work great for jigging.
