Hi

 

I was wondering if anyone has fished Yellow Lake, near Webster. My wife's uncle has a cabin there, and we will be going there over the weekend. I'm not looking for anyone's hotspot, just some general tips as to what might work, and what kind of fish I could catch. I'm most interested in panfish and northerns, but will go after anything.

 

Thanks

Haven't fished Yellow much in the winter, but I do quite a bit in the summer. Post then and I can give you some pretty good info.

I do know there are some nice pan fish in there. The crappies can be huge but from what I understand hard to find through the ice. There are a lot of northern and some big musky.

Most of the shoreline is heavily weeded and you shouldn't have a very hard time finding northerns and some bass there.

IMO this is a much better walleye lake. Fish the deep edges of steep drop offs.

Good luck and let us know how you do.

Yep, the panfish in general have some nice size to them. I've also only fished it in the summer but catching pike out of the weeds was no problem, mostly small pike though.

they get some really nice eyes around ikes resort and the channel to little yellow. the biggest i have heard was 27" but a lot of 21"ers coming out there... Last year i talked to a guy that got an 8lber while i was ot there. sounds like it is a night bite though i was there last winter and i got a lot of perch a few nice ones... like others said just throw a few tip ups up in the weeds maybe 5-10 feet with a shiner for northerns..

Good luck

Just to add to that, watch the ice by the narrows going into Little Yellow.

The weeds only go out to about 8 feet on this lake.

Mostly just Yellow, I do get on the Croix now and again. I've done pretty well on walleyes and crappies here so haven't felt the need to go anywhere else.

I have a cabin on "F" down towards Grantsburg.

You?

Well, I managed to get into a few northens. They weren't biting real fast, but it was enough to make it interesting. I never did make it out in the evening for the eyes, the allure of the snowmobiles was too much. But all in all it was a good time.

Glad to hear you got a few at least. I was up also on a small lake and it was pretty slow. I caught maybe 10 bass on tip ups and one hammer handle. Only 2 crappies this weekend also. oh well maybe next time.

I wouldnt be concerned on getting anywhere near your limit on this lake but it is 25. They have been taking a few nice walleyes out here and there too.

Good Luck,

Ryan

Two of fished Yellow.

Fished 17', kept 15 crappies, best lure

was a #8 glow crappie jig and minnow.

Best action between 6 and 9 pm.

Interesting watching the crazzies on

big yellow skip their snowmobiles over the

open water. Good luck!

Open water both sides of the bridge between

Big and little yellow.

When I fished it, the crappie bite

was so light I took my bobbers off, waited for the

slightest "tick". Set the hook and surprise.

Sometimes I did'nt feel anything, but could see my

line move. My vex battery died, so I could read

depth, but otherwise I was fishing blind.

Good luck !

Any recent Yellow lake reports? How is the ice fairing as of late? Might try it in the next week if I can get a chance. Thanks

Anyone else planning to fish Yellow Lake for the opener,,,Ill be there for our 24th annual Wi opener ,,,Im thinking this may be a catch and release opener(for us any way) since the water may be to cold for the eyes to have spawned yet

At least the pike always seem to be hungry

Good Luck out there if you go

Randy,

We'll be making our annual opener trip to Yellow. Actually did fairly decent last year on eyes, but the two years prior were very poor. This opener could be interesting.

As always, I'll be at Walton's ... I know the people in my boat wont be too happy when I attempt to tell them to C & R those 'Eyes so hopefully we can find the pike and Jumbos instead.

See ya on the water...

If you see Ron Schara out there, dont follow him. You wont catch a thing!! \:\)

I'm hoping to be out for the opener. Last year was tough for me, but '06 and '05 were maybe my best openers ever. Two years ago we got our eyes before 8am, then got into a bunch of those big crappies. Doesn't get any better than that!

Yes, seems all the Burnet County lakes will have a limit of two walleye this year. It also says you can take two from Yellow and two from Little Yellow. Anyone know if this is the case? How would they handle it when you pull out on Yellow with four fish? even if two came from each lake?

Here is the info on ceded territory walleye fishing

Anybody know if the ice is off Yellow?

I have caught alot of panfish on Yellow, very few walleyes.

Panfish are good: when they have some size to them.

lol i saw one of Rons shows where he was on Yellow. When I went out there last year it was a disaster... I was with 2 of my buddies in a 14 footer with a 25hp motor and no windshield. To make a long story short we ended up staying on the SW corner where there wasnt any wind. The one time we tried to go to the other end of the lake we popped some screws in the floorboard. Thats about where we turned around and gave up on the N/W side. Anyone give me any tips on where to catch a few walleyes out there? I will probably be out with my friends again on memorial weekend with a bigger boat and hopefully some better conditions!

Thanks for the help and good luck to anyone who heads out there on opener!

    • We were on Kinn's boats out of Algoma.  
    • What port did you head out of Duff?
    • A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you. 
    • It was slow for us this year, steelhead on Sunday afternoon, and only a couple nice kings on Monday. But the potential for a big fish is there again this year.   My friend is a little on the small side, always makes nice fish look HUGE.   My early morning fish came in at 23.6 lbs. A pound and a half heavier than the top pic.      
    • Nice work, that looks incredible. And I'm a big fan of the grey motif.   Thanks for the show and write up.
    • Yeah we brought it up to our cabin and sleep in it if there are a bunch of people up there. Thanks!
    • Are you guys using it as a summer camper as well?  Super Product right there!  😎
    • Thanks! It weighed in over what I thought which was disappointing. It was right around 7000 lbs with full propane tanks and some other stuff in it. We actually weighed it just after getting spray foamed and it was already at like 5000 lbs I’m not sure how others that did the same style steel stud house have a finished weight around 5500 lbs.    The cost in materials was above 20K but below 25 still too scared to finish adding the receipts. We really tried to use the best materials we could find and not cut any corners. When I was pricing stuff out before we started my ballpark was 19K but I forgot to add a tv screws wire and little stuff like that.    Yeah it took a lot of time but I enjoyed it for the most part. I’m actually getting kind of bored now and don’t know what to do with all the free time. 
    • Thanks for taking the time to do a write up and post all the pics! That alone is a big undertaking in itself. Nice work.   any idea what finished weight is for the entire house?    And just a ballpark figure are you willing to share what it costs in material to build something like this?   I can’t imagine how many hours of your own labor you got into this build. I think it turned out amazing.
    • Alright here’s the finished product. I think it turned out pretty nice. Still need a stove/ range but working on it.    Underneath the lift bed there are 7 lights and two speakers. There are 4 lights above the lift bed. The 3 middle lights underneath are on one button the outer 4 are on a different button and above are on a separate button.  55” smart tv recessed into to wall. The speakers really kick out some sound in this thing though. The tv sound comes out of the 5 speakers in the house which are all ran through the stereo and an amp.      Hole lights  Single light above the stove area  This door is for the satellite receiver. The black center piece is tinted acrylic so you can still use the remote with the door shut. The hole just below the tv is also so you can use the tv remote.  Battery monitor  Supply and return water temperatures for the in floor heat. I was actually really surprised I got my 20 degree delta t I calculated for.  Lights above lift bed. Lift bed in lowest position. Could go lower but that’s just where we put the lowest at.  Different height if people are sleeping below.  Folding table.  These are the cabinets inside the bathroom wall. These are only about 9” deep but I think they will be deep enough for a little more storage. The converter is in here as well it is just above the wiring panel. And the large center square is a false front so you can access the tv wires. I think we are going to go with the dry flush toilet. I put a little 12 v outlet in there so it can br ran off the house batteries.     The only other thing I did that i don’t know if others have done is I wired the rear porch light to the reverse wire of the trailer plug. So when you put the truck in revers that porch light comes on and lights everything up.    I think that’s everything. Feel free to ask any questions if you have any. And thanks again to lipripper and others for posting their builds the information was a ton of help and sorry if I copied too much of your design.
