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.

      I believe it is the 49 bridge just a little south of there. Lots of ice chunks coming down.

      How far did you get?

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
