Any reports on Fish Lake?

5 posts in this topic

Any reports of action on Fish Lake? Heard they are catching some walters with slip-bobbers in 8-14 feet of water.

Haven't caught them on slip bobbers, but I guess we haven't tried for them that way. We've had good luck trolling in 10-12 fow with crawler harnesses.

I would also troll with crawlers. It's a great way to cover water and some nice sized panfish can be caught that way. About this time of year or so they head out to the flats and we have caught nice numbers of bluegills and walleyes, all eaters. In fact, I have caught some of the biggest bluegills in my life on Fish trolling with crawlers. 8-12 feet should cover it. Gonna head up there on Monday. Don't get your stuff too close to the bottom as Fish lake eats tackle

I did real well with the eyes 2 weeks ago... They were biting then so I assume they must really be biting now as well.

Last time out the eyes were scattered, anywhere from a couple FOW to deep. Trolling crawlers or leeches would be my advice. If you find any concentration then slip bob them come evening.

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.
