Recommended Posts

they just opened it this winter i think. its a dnr stocking pond with tons (use to be tons) of walleyes in it but they are mostly 10-13 inches very few larger ones. ive been there 2 times and 1st time 4 of us caught 30-40 little walleyes and 2nd time about 2 weeks ago only caught 3 walleyes and 1 crappie and was 3 of us . think is getting fished out and its pretty shallow . we fished in 8feet. if you go out there let me know how you did maybe i'll give it another shot.

Sounds like you might be talking about Joe's Lake. Word got out that it was a DNR walleye rearing pond and it's been getting pounded this winter. There is a post about it some where. You may want to do a search.

One of my buddies said that he used to fish it 3 or 4 years ago when only a few people would go out there. He said that this year and last it gets pounded by alot of people every day.

I went out Jan. 2nd and 3 of us caught about 30 fish. We kept three over the 13 inch mark. I saw a 17 and 21 incher caught that night also. Two weeks later we fished it and came up empty. Not one mark on the vex and one miss on the tip up. I saw one portable out there on Friday. I think there are still fish out there to be caught, but they are much more tight lipped. I wish I would have stopped earlier in the year. I just drove on by laughing at them on my way to Rush. If they knew, they would have been the ones laughing.

      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?
