Fish/Island Lake Reports

3 posts in this topic

I'm thinking about getting out later today. Has anyone had any success with the walley bite? I'm thinking it's a good time to start using minnows...too early you think? Any advice would be great...I'll give an update tonight!! Thanks.

As of last weekend Fish had been slow but Island is really picking up. We trolled cranks and caught a few but had more hook ups jigging a sucker minnow or shiner in deeper waters. That may change as the water temp is coming down and you can look shallower. Key seemed to be rock/gravel transition areas or just scattered rock. Bring some stinger hooks with the bigger minnows.

After the rain we had the river should have some flow so I would check the mouth of it out for sure.

      Friday night until about 9:00 they were aggressive as heck, and jigging worked very well.  It seemed like after that they didn't want much to do with jigging, and the set lines were key.

      Similar report today. Marked tons of fish but only caught a half-dozen between two of us. The fish would just stare at our baits and then move on.
