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.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
