Heading to Alpine and Ogishkemuncie-Any suggestions?

Recommended Posts

thedeadsea

I am heading up next weekend (22nd-24th) for some Trout and Walleye fishing on Ogishkemuncie and thought I would fish Alpine on our way home on Sunday. Any suggestions on what to use or where to find fish in either of the lakes?

Thanks,

Steve

Unfortunately I don't know these lakes for fishing, but will also be up there the same time. Maybe we'll cross paths on Ogish. We are gonna be there on the 24th I believe.

I'm sure you know but all of this area burned in the last 2 years so be ready for that.

I will be fishing my way out on the 24th. We will most likely be in a dead grass grumman double end. I will be the dark haired guy in the back of the canoe, and be with a balding red haired guy. If you see us, head over our way and hopefully we will be able to tell you where they are biting.

jasper has some trout as well...... just tool around in the middle and keep yer bait near the bottom..... best campsite in the area is on jasper (on the right as you come from alpine-- high up on a cliff there).... good cliff jumping and beautiful views off of site...... don't bother fishing bass/northern/walleye here.....

i haven't really fished ogish for trout, but have done very well for walleye and bass...... there's an island campsite towards the other end of the lake on the left side as you come from kingfisher..... an inflow comes in there down a channel..... good walleye spot up and down the channel and lots of decent smallies-- everyone in our group of 8 caught a smallie over 4 lbs. here...... at night just get out by the little falls there and pitch raps and cranks and plastics in the current for walleye...... during the day anchor by the flow and slip bobber or drift slowly and jig the channel.....

also, the whole area above the outflow to kingfisher is good for walleyes..... just get out of the shallow channel and into that bay a little ways and find a little bit of depth near the current..... kingfisher has 'em too, but i wouldn't keep 'em in there, cuz it's a pretty small lake...... fish the little bay by the inflow from ogish at night.....

i've never stopped at alpine-- looks like a nice lake, though.... if you really want trout, make the trip into kekekabec..... or little kek..... both are full of 'em.... good luck.... let us know how it goes.....

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.

      I broke a bunch also at first  my bear paws just squeeze a little to hard! You definitely need to be carefull when putting them on to much pressure and another one bites the dust. Great bobber and concept can be used for a slip or fixed bobber just a little fragile.

      Some good sticks there!

      Looks good Royce hopefully you can put it to good use soon. The ice is sure getting thick if it keeps up I will be ordering a extension for my K drill soon or bring out the  StrikeMaster and extension.
