Pomme De Terre

Anyone fish Pomme De Terre by Elbow Lake on the opener? I haven't fished it for a couple of years and I'm wondering if there's still a Walleye bite there early in the year.

Ok, nobody fished it on opener. Has anyone fished it in the last couple of years? It used to yield some major league crappies and good walleyes through about memorial day. After the 1st week of June or so, the fishing gets a bit tougher due to the heavy weed growth and the lake's shallowness. The Bass fishing on the Bass opener used to be good too.

snagged again i havent been up there yet this year. my wifes family owns the old cabin on the north end of the lake near the river inlet. my brotherinlaw was up there this weekend but i havent talked to him yet. its been my experiance to that this is a early lake i dont know where they go in the summer proably right in to the weeds which makes it tough because the whole lake tends to get alot of weeds without any definate drop offs to concentrate on. the drop offs that are in the lake dont seem to produce for me later in the year anyway.i might get to sneek up there next weekend for a day or to and i will let you know what i get. my brotherinlaw will be there next weekend for sure with my son so i might be able to pry some information out of them if i dont get up. good fishing.

swampman, I think I remember which cabin it is that your wife's family owns. My dad used to own a cabin that was next to the old Derby's resort. You're right, the weeds are really tough on the lake, and the fishing becomes very difficult in the summer. The walleyes are tough even in the fall for some reason. The best way I found to catch walleyes in the summer was to slowly long line troll a floating rapala just beneath the surface at night. That method worked well enough to catch a 6 1/2 pounder there one summer. I may give it a go over memorial day weekend. If I do, I'll let you know how I did.

Swampman, Fished Pomme De Terre for 3 hours on Sunday. Only caught 1 walleye and a bunch of small Northerns. Had we stayed there a few more hours, we would have probably piced up a couple more walleyes. Weeds aren't bad yet, and the water level is good.

Swampman, Sounds like they did pretty well. An 8 pounder is mighty impressive! I would be interested to hear where they caught them. My email address is timbeltz@charter.net. I fished some of the old haunts I remembered from years ago. The spot I was really hopeful about was an area just out from the boat launch on the west side towards the north end of the lake. There's sort of a groove in the bottom running parallel to shore thats about 12 feet deep. We used to catch some nice walleyes there, including a bunch one winter. Didn't get so much as a bite there.
The walleye we did catch was off the point just across the lake from the old resort. Sort of southeast of the old resort. There's a big home on that point and a nice cabin down near the water.

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams.

      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in.

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
