Does anyone no any good spots that are on the main channel I got my boat down at my father in-laws boat house on baypoint and don't really want to motor to our normal spots on the south end of the lake. I thought about Youngs cabin, point no point, or maybe maiden rock flats. How are the back waters? Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Are you looking for bass, eyes, panfish, catfish? All those areas will hold fish that you mentioned. The back channel will hold fish too. Dragging jigs with bait, and cranks should produce fish.

I was hoping to tie into some walleyes or saugers doesn't really bother me if we don't catch anything at all. It's just more fun if we do. I went out on monday didn't do any fishing just wanted to mark some points of interest. Point no point wasn't holding much fish, at least not from what I could see on the lowrance. But those things are never 100% foolproof. DId mark some on the backwater. but water was really shallow in some spots. and looked to be chock full of snags. Maybe bottom bouncers will fair well there. Any other suggestions spots or techniques???

In the back channel try snagless jigs with bait for walleyes and sauger or vertical jigging off bottom for crappies and sunfish. Dragging jigs with bait along the main channel sand flats will hold fish as well as clam bed areas.

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
