Walleye fishing has been very slow for me. Last week, I tried trolling and lindy rigging leeches without success. We did have a bug hatch last week that typically turns them off. I haven’t had much opportunity to try again, but will check it out in the coming week. As fall approaches, the walleye fishing […]
Northern Pike have been very good. If you find a school, you will catch a bunch. . Again, the right size suckers has been the key, 6-7 inches has been the best size. Any bigger and the smaller fish will take them and run but will ultimately kill the bait. The best location has been […]
Fall has officially arrived on both the calendar and the temps. After about 10 days of high temps and high pressure, we’ve seen a significant drop and for the past few days high temps have struggled to get into the lower 70’s. Largemouth bass are biting again with the weather change.
Northern Pike are being caught in the shallow weed flats in 12-13 ft of water on White spinner baits or Chatter baits. The pike prefer a fast moving bait. The deep water sucker bite has been difficult all summer.
Northern Pike fishing has been okay in the shallow weed flats. The most action is coming out of 12-13 ft of water casting white spinner baits or medium diving fire tiger crank baits. Look for the fish on the west end, in Viewcrest or the Highlands. The sucker bite for me has been non-existent.
Bluegills have not moved into the deep water all summer. The bigger fish remain in the 13-15 ft depth range. The best location has been off the main lake points and off the buoy line on the west end, the Highland side seems to be the best. Using a small split shot and a leaf […]
Northern pike fishing has also been slow. I’ve been dragging medium suckers in 22-25 ft of water with very limited success. I’m fishing the suckers on lindy rigs about 1 foot off bottom. The northern pike bite will improve with a weather change as well.
Largemouth bass are in 15-17 ft of water. You want to fish just west of Browns Channel or just west of Willow Point or the Yacht Club. They can be caught on drop shot rigged 4 inch finesse worms or nightcrawlers fished on a split shot rig. In early morning hours, the top water bite […]
