Pokegama report- Labor day weekend

2 posts in this topic

Fishing on Pokie from Friday to Monday was very good. During the day, the smallies and largemouth were very active on large sucker minnows in 14-20 fow. The key was to be on winblown structure with lots of baitfish action. My five year old got to reel in a 19' bass and several nice pike. I trolled cranks each of the 4 nights for walleye and had consistent actionfrom about 10pm-1am. Again, windblown structure was the key. I caught fish from 4-14' of water over weeds, rocks and sand, on the tops of flats and the edges. Speed was 1.6-1.8 and HJ12s and HJ14s in clown and white/pink were the best colors. I had my brother-in-law with me one night and a friend another. In total we caught 28 over the 4 nights. Size was 15-28 but most were 21-25. My brother-in-law caught the very fat 28 which was the biggest fish he had ever caught and his biggest walleye by a long shot. I've always liked the lake, but I'm loving it now. Ever since I spent time with Dan the guide and got the gps chip for my gps, my success hs greatly improved. Any other reports?

gkl, I have not been out for a few days now, but last time out I did get my biggest brown bass of the year, a little over 20", scaled at about 5 1/4 pounds. I got a new septic system put in so I have been dealing with that, looking forward to hit it hard this week, the fishing that is.

      If there was a wind on Sunday there would have been waves in some areas.  We drove our trucks through 6" of water or more in some spots (many spots were dry) and had water gushing up out of some holes in some areas.  Fishing was OK for us but nothing to brag about.  We had a good fish fry and brought a meal or two home, depending on the side dishes.

      169 overpass (293rd or county 9) north of Zimmerman...take the off ramp and go east (right) to county 19 take a right going south through the S curve and hang a left at the end of S curve on 289th Ave take that about 2 miles to Blue Lake Dr take a right and then take your first left a couple blocks later to the landing.
