Wahkon area

I am purchasing a camping trailer in this bay and looking for any info on what fish can be caught in the bay or near it. Looking to get the family out for some fun. I have a very light aluminum boat so long runs and wave busting are not going to work.

Well, I'm hoping the fishing is more active than the forum. Would I be best looking for pike or small mouth in this area?

i dont fish much for muskie or northerns, but there is a vegetation reef kind of southsoutheast of halfmoon island. its a good spot for muskies and im sure northerns too. the shallow rocks around the island must hold small mouth too. take it with a grain of salt, but if no one else answers at least its a place to start. good luck!

regards,

Thanks for the info. I think I,ll let the boys try a little of both and see how it goes. I am going to pick up a lake map or two to study also.

Walleyes, pike, smallmouth, and muskies are all avaialable in Wahkon bay. The shallower rocks is where you'll likely find the smallies. Trolling or casting along the weedlines is where you'll find the pike/muskies. The West side of Half Moon, Upper Twin, and Lower twin are all good bets for walleyes during primetime hours.

Good luck!

computerboy nailed it. I too have a small aluminum and very rarely venture outside the bay, and it's not just because of the boat, but because there is some good fishing to be had in Wahkon. Keep an eye out for a tan alumacraft with a 50hp yamaha with a casting seat (and an overweight dude with the sleeves ripped off his shirt) up front, and stop by and say hi! smile.gif
