Fish Trap Lake Summer Info


Recommended Posts

How is Fish Trap in the early summer? Looking at walleyes and panfish. I'd like to take the family someplace for a few days in mid-June. Are there a lot of skiers and jetskis on the lake? Any suggestions on resorts? How about Alexander or Shamineau? Thanks for any advice.

Alex is a FAR superior lake for Walleye, at any time of year. I think there are now 2 or 3 resorts on Fishtrap. Nothing special. Very nice pleasure boating lake. Good bass. It is a better week day fishing lake.

Thanks for the info. I have heard Alex is tough to fish for walleyes because it's so clear? I guess the panfish would be my primary target with the family, then a shot at some walleyes second. I could trailer over to Alex too. So by saying "good pleasure boating" lake do you mean a lot of water skiers and jetskis? Looking to avoid that mess if at all possible. Also, looking to stay at SweetWater Resort. Know anything about the place?

Lots of boater on the Trap. Shamineau is your best bet for quiet, but that might not mean much. Those are pretty much the only 3 lakes in that immidiate area for recreational boating. You would be fine during mid-week but weekends are busy. Fishtrap IMO is your best bet for panfish. Like I have said before there are large schools of good sized slabs to be caught if you are lucky enough to find them.

therancher,

Do you ice fish trap for crappies/gills much, my buddy has lived right on it the most of his life and we fish it quite a bit. Send me a email [email protected], we can maybe swap some areas.

      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?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
