I will be up this week fishing walleyes with my dad from saturday to saturday for the annual Big V fishing trip. I will be in the middle of the lake at oak narrows. Any suggestions? I will be giving a report when I get back any help is much appreciated.

The walleye bite has been very good all week.

Any type of presentation has been getting fish!

I have been fishing jigs/minnows or Lindy Rigs with minnows or crawlers in water that is 12' to 42' deep.

Slow and easy is working best for me.

fished niles bay, wolf bay and frazer bay on tuesday. frazer bay was most productive, fishing 30fow with 1/8 oz. jig. fish bit on minnows, crawlers and leeches but it was a light bite so more fish were hooked using half a crawler. didn't have any luck under 20fow anywhere. be back saturday am weather permitting.

I know this on the other end of the lake, but we were doing pretty darn good by Mud Creek Bay area in 20 to 33 FOW with leeches on spinner rigs(day time) and 7 to 9 FOW with slip bobbers and leeches(early morning and evenings). We didn't get around to trying worms, and minnows didn't do anything for us.

I was up on the big V from June 9th thru the 15th. The fishing was great! Slowly trolled lindy's the whole time with size 8 and 6 red and Flo. Orange hooks on 2 to 3 foot snells. The speed was best between 0.4 and 0.8 mph. We caught enough unders to send limits home with 7 people and about 10 to 15 slot fish. One nice pike, five smallies and many nice bonus Jumbo Perch. We fished from 10 to 19 feet the entire time. Mostly in the middle of the lake by Gold Island, Muskrat Channel and Grassy Point. It was a great time had by all. We will be back next year a little earlier. The group we were with also spent some time fishing for sunnies and were rewarded with plenty of nice sized fish. The biggest walleye was 23 inches and the biggest under was 16 3/4's. The bulk of the fish caught were 13.5 to 15 inches. They were all nice healthy looking fish. I can't wait to find them next year! I forgot to add it was all leeches and nightcrawlers but the crawler seemed to have the edge and we only used half crawlers and they did just fine.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
