Pike Lake and Elbow Lake

Recommended Posts

I started camping at a seasonal last year on pike lake. Any body got any advice on a lake around there for the month of June? I could use some help for a few good walleye lakes and the general areas to try. Thanks for any advice. Pike is about 25 miles east of Waubun next to Elbow and Tulaby.

Well if you havent found out yet, eyes on elbow are tough to find.

a friend of mine has a trailer on pike as well, and there are a few eyes in there and nice ones at that, just tough to put any patern on them and the numbers are low.

early june is a great time to hit Bad medicine more so for trout but walleys are to be had there as well. strawberry, round, and many point would also be lakes to give a day or 2 look at, and if your up for some adventure try any of the small lakes north of 113 if you have a smaller boat.

A few years ago, we stayed on Elbow lake in June on vacation. We did pretty well on the walleyes actually. We ended up finding all of them in the cabbage beds and caught them casting stickbaits over the top. Size was very respectable. Might help you out a little.

BF.....have you talked with Dave at the resort and gotten the scoop on his slip bobber technique for catching walleyes on Pike Lake?? He'll help you out if you ask him.

Livebait rigs with a plain hook and a leech were effective for us one morning along the bulrushes. We nailed them pretty good now that I think about it--it's been 4 or 5 years though.

Elbow used to be one of my favorites. If you're comfortable fishing at night make sure you try it out there. It's the lake that first got me interested in fishing after dark. If you do a search in this forum you'll find some spots discussed in another thread for that lake.

Juggler used to be good too.

      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?
