Potato Lake Action

9 posts in this topic

We will be on Potato from the 8th to the 15th. We mainly go for panfish and eyes, but like to try our luck at Northerns. Any suggestions?

it was tough guiding for me the last two mornings, managed walleyes both days but I really had to work for them. we caught our fish on crawlers in around 17 feet.

I was at my parents since tues and did great with the panfish. Eye fishing a little slower, picked up a couple smaller northerns trolling cranks. Mixed in a really nice crappie, but just the one with lots of nice sunnies.

Thanks

Thanks, I have been told that a larger boat might have a hard time in the channel between these lakes. I am coming up on July 21st and staying on Eagle Lake and did want to trailer the boat back and forth from Potato Lake if I did not have to.

Jonah, I will be stoppong in to see you sometime that week.

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.

      Are the catfish still biting decent out there? Usually make it up earlier in the year have not made it up yet this year but I'm looking to come up one of the next couple evenings.
