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.

      Jay! You still in Alabama? I'll be headed back to Texas soon - but NOT until ramps freeze over up here. Wasn't going to go fishing today but sun came out and wind died so I headed to lake. Arrived at noon, wind started blowing and scattered snow/rain. Never fails.  But I had good luck with seven big pike, 3 walleyes and 11 bass. Fished alone. Tried to talk Mike into trolling the shoreline for pike on Wednesday but he didn't want to do that so that is what I did in my boat today. They were where I had caught some in late Fall a few years back. All around 30"-36". All stuffed full of bait which I guess are ciscos since they move shallow this time of year to spawn. Hopefully get some more big pike tomorrow. Trailer lights went out so have to fix those first. Best bait 6" Lunker City Swim Fish on heavy jig head. Bass & walleyes on flukes with fairly heavy head because of wind. Forgot camera so no pictures today.

      Know of a breeder that has a 3 yr old Vizsla that is giving him away. His grandfather was a champion but this one just didn't turn out to much of a hunter. He'll only listen to the boss and no one else. He's not gun shy but he is real sensitive apparently, whatever that means. He's neutered and up to date with his shots. Sounds like more of a family dog then a hunter.
