Lake Mitchell Report


Recommended Posts

Great day out on Mitchell today. First time fishing that lake and landed some nice fish. Caught a bunch on pan fish and Pike. Also a huge large mouth bass was caught out there today.

What were you using for the pan fish? Any size to them? Any crappie. Where abouts if you don't mind? Now I dont know where to go tomorrow night.

My cousin and I fished mitchell last night for the first time ever in the winter. Kept 10 crappies between the 2 of us. Found them right away. 30 fow suspended 6 ft off bottom.

Crappie minnows. They were pretty aggressive also.

No there was not Johnnie. But a couple of people came and got there fish houses with 4 wheelers. They were the closest people to us. But not that close. Why, were you out last night?

nope, just wondering. I could not make it out this weekend. It has been nice not having driveable ice. It keeps a lot of the traffic on the lake down. How much ice was there this weekend?

The ice is still ranging from 8 to 10" of good ice. But mitchell was playing some music last night. It was cold. Do you know if there are any springs or spots to watch out for on mitchell or big lake?

Just be careful near the channel. Every year someone thinks it is a good idea to drive between the lakes and puts their truck through the ice.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
