Walleye bite is coming back strong

2 posts in this topic

on Northern Light Lake (Ontario). Just got back yesterday from a ten day trip to NL Lake. The Walleye bite was great, getting back to where it was a few years back. Caught countless 17" fish, 35' down on pink jigs and minnows. Many boats were portaging over from Sag. for their limits.

Bass fishing was great as well, had a 20" 4 1/2 pound on a surface bait, fun fight!

Pike were hitting the crankbaits on the points.

Trout were still deep, hitting spoons near the bottom at 70 - 75'. Whitefish were also hitting deep like the trout.

Best Labor Day week for the Walleyes in the past four years.

Im glad to see the eyes starting to bounce back up there. Man it was preety lean for about 3 years there. Maybe now I will have to start putting N.L. back on my list of lakes to hit next summer.

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
