Walleye fishing has been good right at dusk and at dawn. The fish are still in 16-18 ft of water. The only time I’ve had any really good success has been in the low light conditions. Almost all of the fish have been caught on night crawlers.
Perch fishing has been pretty good. The fish have been biting on hellgrammites or ½ of a nightcrawler. The best depth has been 17-19 ft. The best location has been on the west end of the lake by the Island.
Perch fishing has been excellent this last week, with both numbers and large fish being caught. Most of the good catches have been coming from the west end. The depth has varied from 15-23 ft.; you need to move around to find an aggressive school of fish. Like always, the best bait is hellgrammites with […]
Crappies are prevalent all over the lake. Pretty much every spot I’ve tried I’ve found fish. The only problem is that most of the fish I’ve been catching are in the 6-7 inch range so you need to do a lot of sorting to catch a good meal.
Walleye fishing has been good at night. Some nice fish were being caught on slip bobbers in 8-9 ft. of water. The best bait for this week are large fat head minnows. Casting crankbaits has also been producing a lot of fish.Check locations such as Willow Point, the Yacht Club point and Browns Channel.
Walleye pike are off the main lake points in 22-24 ft of water. They can be caught on lindy rigged nightcrawlers with a 24-30 inch leader. I prefer using a painted hook on my lindy rig in either pink or chartreuse. As the water cools, the fish will switch to an all fat head minnow […]
Bluegill fishing has been spotty. I’ve been catching one or two while bass fishing. The fish are suspending in the main lake basin about 10-15 ft down in 40 ft of water. The fish will move shallow as the water continues to cool. Once they are in about 10-14 ft of water they will be […]
Bluegill fishing, like the bass, have been feast or famine. Some days they are in the 13-15 ft depth range and the next day they’ve vanished. The best locations have been in front of Lake Lawn Lodge, Township Park and Assembly Park. The fish can be caught on split shot rigged trout worms or red […]
