Any Fish Lake reports from this weekend?

I'll be out there on Saturday and am hoping for some decent reports.

Thanks...

Leeches were the bait this past weekend. Friday they were in 12-14 ft. Last night I caught them from 15-18 ft. Slow is the key. Very good bite

Theres pretty good morning and evening bite. The cold week has put them deeper.

Out in front of the flowage has been getting a lot of attention, but you'll do fine on the wind blown shorelines and islands with the warmer temps on the way. Jigs/spinners with leech will work but theres still a minnow bite as well.

Thanks guys,

I usually bring both minnows and leeches early in the year you never know what they'll want day to day.

I will probably focus my attention on the west side and around some of the islands in the main lake. According to the weather channel it looks like cool rainy weather this weekend as of right now so i will start looking for them a little deeper.

Good info

Did just fine Fri. Sat. and Sunday nights not as well in the mornings. They did go a bit deeper. Lots of northern and bass for the fun of it during the day.

Our weather can change from the fourty days and nights of rain and wind, wind, wind, and wind. mad.gif

Is there a fishable population of bass in Fish Lake? I have always heard rumors of some big bass in there but so few of them that they are really hard to target, they are just accidental catches. I might have to give them a shot of these days.

When I first moved to Duluth 15 years ago or so, there were no bass in Fish lake - if there were, it would only have been a handful. Over the past 5 years there has been a growing population and I seem to catch more 'accidental' bass each year. They have all been small for me though. The largemouths I have caught in Fish lake have been very homogeneous in color and not detailed and colorful as your typical largemouth.

I would expect largemouth bass to do very well in Fish lake and their population to continue to grow. This is kind of like Island lake. When I first moved to duluth, bass were unheard of in Island, now the small mouth population there has exploded and there are big smallies to be caught.

Is this a bad thing? I don't know. Though I'm sure the local bass fisherman don't mind! grin.gif

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
