Hey LETSgoFISHIN,

How was the trip to Ball Club Lake? I'm going there the last week in September and have never fished that lake before, do you have any pointers for me on the fishing? I'm staying a Gus's Place Resort.

This is an EXCELLENT walleye lake. I totally recommend it! It is truely an untapped resource.

Troll rapalas, use jigs and minnows, leeches, anything will trigger some bites...

it was great time and we caught a ton of fish. walleye, perch, pike, lm bass, rockbass, and bowfin(dogfish) were caught by my brother and i. if you like perch we probably caught 600 or so and lots of JUMBOS in that 12-14 inch range. we each kept our 40 possesion limit and let the others go. if you are staying at gus place he will point you to the right places grin.gif strait across from gus place 6 fow was our best places. hope this helps, darren grin.gif

darren,

It sounds like you had one heck of a fishing trip. Thanks for the information, I do like to perch fish and if their in the shallows now I would think they would be there the last week in September. Thanks again!

      Welcome what are you training her for waterfowl upland or both? What is her name?

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
