Night fishing "I hate it!!"

2 posts in this topic

Where do you fish on leech during the day for walleyes. Or is there really not a day bite, unlike winnie. Have a place in Steamboat bay. I'm tired of fishing from 8pm until 11pm. Any suggestions!

There are fish to be caught during the day. I saw you mentioned sand point in another thread, this of cource is an evening thing but during day light. The area that runs west to the landing from sand point holds fish, you just have to find them. There are some good weeds runnig out 13 to 15 ft of water about half way from to the landing. Lindy rigs with leechs or crawlers should work. you can also run shad raps but you run into pike and muskie so hold on to your rod!! This area alwasy holds fish but can be very good with a south or south east wind.

As for the sand point thing, I am not a fan of fishing the floatila but they are fishing an area of flat sand that is surounded by weeds. My expirence has been if your in the sand you will catch fish but the outer edge weeds are not so good. To avoid the group at that time of day just motor over to cedar and work the break line with lindy rigs.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
