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.

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
