Where to fish ?

5 posts in this topic

Hi Guys This is my first post. I'm going to LOTW out of Adrians resort and I'm wondering if anyone could give me some tips. This is my first time up and I'm wondering if my 16'8" Almuacraft Navigator will be big enough to get to the Eyes or Ski's. any ideas on where I can locate these?

Welcome to our wonderful Walleye on line home.

You dont say when you will be at LOTW????Adrians

Resort will know where the fish are and they wont

keep it secret from you.

Your boat is plenty big except on the windier days

and then it doesnt matter much because it is pretty

tough out there unless you are in one of the big

charters boats.

One of the most incredible bites in memory is happening

right now in 31 feet of water not far from Adrians Resort.

As far as the 'skis, there may be some in the river but this

is not an area close to the legendary Musky fishing on LOW.

Good Luck

That deep already. Anyone downrigging? What are they biting on for live bait?

There are some trollers out there buzzing around the

anchored boats. I think they are doing alright too.

Jigs and frozen shiner minnows are the ticket. I used

some kind of frozen minnows the fish ignored. Switched

to a frozen emerald shiner or a live chub and the fish

bit like crazy!!!!!

Go figure

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      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?
