I'm not sure if I've got the right forum location here.

We fished Beaver lake a couple times last summer. Wondering if anyone is on it these days, what the ice is like?

Please let me know if there is another forum I should be posting this on.

I appreciate any info on this!

The ice is good, but the fishing out there the last month or so has been lowsy. Was out a couple times last week and not a darn thing caught in 3 hours. Don't know how the night bite is as I haven't took the time to stay out there. But, the fish seem to stick to the 20 foot section out from the pier from what I've seen on the flasher...Good Luck! cool.gif

We're going to give it a try tomorrow. I'll leave a post either tomorrow night or monday on how we did.

Thanks again!

Haven't heard anything about anyone catching anything out there...I see guys out there almost everytime I go by. Does anyone know if the fishing contests are still on for Frances on the 1st sunday in Feb? Also is the ones on Beaver and ST Olaf still going on the following weekend??? I usually go to both of those but with the ice as it is will they still have them? I don't see why not but I'm just checking.

Got out on Sunday. Fished hard all day long. There's definately fish in this lake. They showed up on the Vex about every 15 minutes. Getting them to bite is another thing.

hope people had better luck than we did!

We went a couple times on the ice and had no luck, the only luck I had out there was earlier this last summer probably in early June before the swimming season really kicked in, got some nice gills out there(pushing 10 inches), but that was it.

I've never gone on it in the summer, I usually quit fishing it in early June, but if it is anything like St. Olaf(Which NEVER clears up, it is always green) it is green in the summer. But I can't say for sure, I know it gets a lot of jet-ski action and speed boating out there. In the summer it is mostly just a recreation lake.

      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?
