What is working?

4 posts in this topic

Coming up on Thursday to hit the east side (staying at everett bay lodge) wondering what bait the walleyes are hitting on? Any tip's on Depth would be helpful also. I will also post results when I get back.

I have been using both jigs and Lindy rigs this week.

Minnows have accounted for most of my fish. Pike suckers and chubs have been working for me, but if you can get big rainbows they are the best bait. Crawlers are also catching a few walleyes yet.

12' to 30' of water has been the best depths the past 2 weeks for me.

Mr. Manners,

I just returned from a long weekend at the casino campground. The walleye's I found were on Main Lake Big Bay flats in 16-24 feet of water. I caught many keeper fish using 3-4 colors of leadcore and small crankbaits when windy and switched to bottom bouncers and spinner-crawler combo when calmer. The bottom bouncer spinner setup caught lots of fish including a 27 incher, 24 incher several 17-19 inchers and limits of eater 15-16 3/4 inchers. Good luck. Water temps were 62-64 degrees.

Thanks,

I have heard some rumblings that daisy bay may be producing so we will see. I have about 12-14 dozen crawlers left from a flat I brought to Canada so i will try those and pick up some rainbows.

      Wow that is a little discouraging. Looked at the DNR lake info for the last survey which was done on Big Trout lake in 2011. Not one Laker was caught in any of the test net types! Still shows their stocking them but none showed up. Anyone try it on opener and find any Lakers?

      Anyone go out there last weekend for opener? If so how was the ice and the bite? Giving this weekend a thought?

      I personally like the cold and dont mind it. But this week is a nice change and prob wont help the ice building much!

      I remembered I wrote this question. So I'm replying back. I was lucky enough to have a relative who had a Smith and Wesson Model 66-2 .357 mag (mint condition) that he was willing to part with. I haven't shot it yet. Been busy. Anyway now what recommendations are out there for 38 shells for plinking. I've read about the problems if using to heavy a load. Thanks
