Heading to Island Lake

Recommended Posts

deano

I friend of mine has a cabin on Island Lake south of Langby and has invited a group of guys to go down and spend the weekend. I don't know anything about the lake, and was wondering if anyone could give me some info. (ice conditions, and what a person would catch) Thanks for any help you can give me.

Take LOTS of adult beverages!!! Island is not a lake that you would travel to for the fishing. There are some pretty tight walleye regs in force to try and bolster the numbers. All 17-26 inch walleyes must be released. (course that doesn't matter now) The crappie population is non-existent. The perch numbers are alright, but the size is on the smaller end. 34% of the perch sampled were 9", but thats what you have to look forward to. You might catch some bigger ones, but you have to weed through the smaller ones to get them.

But hey, it's better than working. Right??

I know of some people that have done really well on panfish there, but they havent hit it lately. They were finding them in 12 - 16 foot range, but like I said that was a while ago, so who knows if they are still hitting. Not sure about the ice either.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
