Kraemer Lake ???


Recommended Posts

It is my understanding that the St Joe Rod and Gun own the access to this lake and a membership is required to gain access? Who would I contact to do this, so that I can fish the lake. Thanks, Bill

It is regulated by the Gun and Rod Club. I don't think you would get a fine if you got caught using it but the money goes to a good cause to maintain the landing and they stock walleyes in the lake. Bill you can pay for the membership right at the Kramer access they have a drop box. You can then use the access on Little Watab/Pleasent Acres. Good Luck if you go out there the crappies aren't very big, walleyes are tough to find but there nice when you catch them.

hill- read the sign when you drive in thru the gated entrance!! I believe they have a mailbox or something with all the info. Like mentioned above, it costs 8 bucks a year for individual or 12 for family (I believe these amounts are right) this money goes to a good cause and should not break anyone's bank!! Good luck

Bill,

I grew up on this lake. You do need to buy a Rod and Gun club membership to fish this lake. You can pay at the access. As far as fishing, we have been doing quite well. Crappies will usually run small out here. This year we have run into a few 12-13 inchers. I have not seen them that size in a long time out here. You do have to work for the larger fish. Try not to follow the crowds.

Thanks to all for your feedback. I did not fish it yesterday instead opted for a lake near Upsala where I've had a good bite in the past. Not yesterday however. Talked to two other groups that were there as well and nada, nothing, bobber didn't move. Oh well thats why there is tomorrow. ON the way home my 20/20 vision kicked in and told me I should have gone to Kraemer. I heard that there were some fish being caught there. And yes I will definitley pay the fee of $8.00. I had almost that amount invested in minnows and waxies. Thanks again, good luck in your ventures and hold onto your rod. Bill

I made it to Kramer yesterday i just forgot about this lake this year i usally fish it often. Caught a lot of crappies and sunnies but they where all small 4-7in. Still fun to get out and catch fish. I can't wait another couple of years once those fish get in the 9-12in range!

asmoley: Lets hope that some conservation goes into fishing on Kraemer. A little catch and release will go a long ways for sure. this lake used to have some really big sunnies and craps. Nice to see some smaller fish though that will like you said turn out to be the 11-12's of the future.

The lake I was talking about that I went to on Wed you and I talked about by email last year. It didn't do it for me that day. Very little traffic on the lake as no one is driving. That should help keep the pressure down. Bill

Was that the perm the farthest down on the left(east) side? I fished about 30 yds past him and he too did not see a bobber move that night either. I'll let you know if things start to go. Bill, PS you do the same.

They wern't driving on there last time i was out there but that was a week ago. Most of the area lakes are now drivable but still be cautious.

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it

      Del, I want to clarify my post regarding the Vermilion Club pizza. First of all, the latest online review for the Vermilion Club was July 4th, 2021. I ate there twice after that review. Both times our group ate pizza and both times the pizza was excellent. I've eaten Poor Gary's pizza for a very long time both when we visited for many years, when we lived on Birch Point, and every time we're there since we left. I could tell a Vermilion Club pizza with a blindfold on. It has a very distinct taste and smell. We absolutely love it. BUT, this time it was different. I even asked our waitress if Poor Gary's pizza had been replaced by new owners. None of our group thought the pizza was even close to what it had been. Now, I'm not knocken the Vermilion Club. I ate there way back in the late 50's when George and Dorothy Tuma owned it. They have always served great food and I have no reason to doubt that their appetizers, sandwiches, etc. are still great. Just understand that pizza and other food is made in 2 different kitchens. I don't know what changed with the pizza kitchen since last September when we were there before this latest trip but something did. I wouldn't hesitate to go back and eat there again. But next time, it'll be on wings night.

      On the south end...  Resorts are adapting to high water conditions.  Despite lots of water, the vast majority of resorts are open, charter boats are running, and summer fishing is in full swing. Most boat ramps are open including Wheeler's Point and others.  Call ahead to your favorite resort or check their Facebook page for specifics. Lots of walleyes being caught in many different locations.  Some fish are in 4-15 feet on sand capitalizing on shiner and minnow spawning.  Others are on shallow rocks eating crayfish.  Others are deeper, 25 - 33', feeding on schools of minnows and various critters coming out of the mud.     Some anglers are still jigging, but drifting with spinners with a crawler or minnow has been super effective this week.  Both methods are working.  Gold, glow, and pink have been good colors this week for jigs and spinners. Trolling crankbaits and covering water has been very effective this past week.  Shiny gold and purple are a couple of good colors.  In addition to walleyes and saugers, pike, smallmouth bass and even an occasional muskie are being caught.   Anglers are allowed a combined limit of 6 walleyes and saugers on the MN side of LOW.  Up to 4 can be walleyes.  All walleyes between 19.5 - 28.0" must be released.  One allowed over 28" per day.   On the Rainy River...   The river still has a lot of current.  Anglers keying in on current breaks as a rule.   A mixed bag in the river right now includes walleyes, saugers, smallmouth bass, and pike.  Sturgeon season reopens July 1st.   Current breaks off of the main channel for walleyes and saugers.  Smallmouth bass near rocky areas, feeder streams and bridge embankments.   Bays have been good for pike.  Lots of big pike and even good walleye reports in bays and feeder rivers to the Rainy River.  Lots of shiners in the river. Up at the NW Angle...  Fishing continues to be very good up at the Angle.  Anglers are fishing both the U.S. side and Ontario side of the lake with good success. Flag Island flats and areas around Garden Island were just a couple of areas good this week.  Lots of walleyes with some mixed in pike.  Fish being caught jigging, pulling spinners and trolling crankbaits.   A jig and minnow and pulling crawler harnesses have been good fishing deeper structure as well.  Neck down areas, rocky points and cabbage weeds all holding fish.  There are typically some fish shallow near shore morning and evening with good numbers being caught. A mixed bag for most anglers with walleyes, saugers, pike, smallmouth bass, crappies and jumbo perch. Excellent muskie fishing with numbers of fish being caught. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      Nope, not there anymore.  Just don’t get up there enough anymore.  Sadly.   Taxes are cheap enough to not really worry about and still have it.     smurf does the pissin’.  I wouldn’t do a thing like that to good furniture. 😉
