Can the walleye be??? Has anyone been picking up and numbers of fish. I haven't been out lately but everyone I have talked to are resorting to bluegills and smallies. Any guesses as to what is causing this slow down?

I guess zero is a number.

so I guess I have caught a number. If the wind would stop I might try weeds. Reef on west end not doing anything that I can see.

Fish are in post Mayfly funk. Lasted 3 weeks last year on east end. Been almost 2 weeks this year. The few you catch are very full of small minnows ( perch ? ) They turned back on last year about this time,so maybe the upcoming warm weather will turn things around

Heartattack,

Leeches or crawlers on short Lindys, 17 to 26 feet. on the reefs.

Hope the worst is over now!

Sort of afraid to ask, but I have my family traveling up from Key Biscayne, FL for a long weekend this Thursday and our only means of bathing is in the lake. Has the recent cold spell dramatically driven down water temps? We were up two weekends ago (Frazer Bay) and it was around 74 degrees.

Thanks

East bay temp at 6:30 was 73.7 My daughter spent a few hours on the floaty of the dock. Very comfortable. Today was very calm and around 80 tomorrow the same so water temps and fishing should remain good.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
