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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
