RL weekend fishing report

3 posts in this topic

Was up Thurs afternoon through Saturday. Got the skivvy from Bill at RL1Stop whose advice on shoreline was right on.

Nightcrawlers and spinners in 20-30 ft of water. Some mid day a little deeper too. The action was good in the mornings, slowed down a bit in the afternoons and then the evenings were good again. Plenty of slot fish with the biggest at 26" and the most came in at that 14"-17". Blade color of gold, Orange/black, Perch, and actually just about most colors worked.

We knew things were going our way Friday when in the afternoon we found 7 full cans of PBR floating right by our boat and after an hour of ice time they really hit the spot. This was right after dodging the thunder storm. PBR from heaven.

Appears that a few walleyes are on the reefs now too as we started catching them Saturday and that was where the biggest one was caught. But, definately had more numbers come from shoreline yet. This coming weekend the reefs should be going better.

Thanks Bill! See you in August.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
