Pleasant Lake Walleye?

3 posts in this topic

I'm a die-hard bass guy but the domestic goddess has decreed that I should catch some walleye so we can dine on said piscatorial delight.

We'll be on Pleasant Lake for the week starting Aug 11th - what should I be doing (besides going to the grocery store) to catch walleyes on that lake at that time? Is it primarily a night deal or what? Is it leeches, minnows, or crawlers or none of the above? Lindy Rig, jig, cranks?

Please help the clueless....Be glad to share some bass insights from there in return....

Try trolling Cordel Wally Divers in Fire Tiger Pattern on southern and eastern shoreline mornings and late afternoon. Also off eastern point near south end of lake. I haven't tried fishing after dark but southwest shoreline, western point with bouy marker and west shoreline near north end of lake have the most rock structure. I will be up there the same week staying at the Resort on the north end of the lake. I have better luck catching Northerns than Walley. I haven't tried Bass much but have seen several large Bass at the fish cleaning shack. I hope this helps you out. Maybe we will cross paths while we are on the lake. Good Luck

Two - thanks and keep an "eye" (no pun intended) out for a black Lund Explorer with a big ugly guy in front.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
