Report: Island Lake- Off The Schnide...

6 posts in this topic

I had fished for a day & 1/2 without an 'eye... That don't happen too much on our neighbor lake...

Got off the schnide on Island...

I stayed the course Friday & steered to Island when Minnowetts came. Neglecting the pannie bite on the unnamed res. lake nearby, we got solid eye action in 18' tword the afternoon.

I got to fish Friday from 2 to 10:30 & was getting frustrated with all the #$@% I was throwing at fish that were not where I was... confused.gif

As the day wore on we found a nice bottleneck that dropped to 24' & happily got several eyes.

I want to tell the story about the one that got off, it was REAL BIG, but OutdoorRan would be bored sick with another excuse from me.

Try jigging in moderate depths, we weren't afraid to hit 20+ ( or 7' for that matter )to find the ones that wanted to bite. Leeches better than crawlers.

Oh no you didnt Ran! Just remember you were the only one to lose a fish the other day. It was a slob too. At least 16#'s of laker. LOL. wink.gif

Casa you need to sign up for the Hawg Walleye Contest on Island the last weekend in July. You surely would win something with your knowledge of lake.

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.

      Great fishing everywhere?  Please give me the resorts and depths of the great fishing as that will help me decide where to go.
