Island Lake Gold Report 8/4

7 posts in this topic

It wasn't an all out day of fishing. Just a couple hours on the water with Pete and then some relaxation time with friends and family at the cabin.

The report is much the same as my last Island Lake Report

22' of water trolling spinners w/ crawlers. Whats strange to me is to have to 14-15"ers in among the larger eyes, not that I'm complaining.

Island has put out some very quality eyes for me this summer.

This one was quickly photographed and Released, none worse for wear. Note the ragged tail, no doubt shes spawned a few times.

This was a mid day bite, I did get a report of those perfect eaters(15") coming from 5' of water in the evening, again with spinners. Just goes to show theres more then one way to get the Gold from Island.

Its the "in" thing! Krammer has one just like it, so I know its in fashion.

Made from nylon, its a very cool shirt in the hot sun.

2 weekends ago I was wearing it also(very hot out), throw it in the lake and put it back on, instant goose bumps!

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
