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.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
