The water is perty dark and the average pike is about 10", there's alot better lakes in the area to try to stick a slimer.

fishualik, thanks for the info. do you think a person could see in 7-8 ft of water? you can take 9 slimers out of there that would good for pickling. want to angle for whatever bites also. going over with 3-4 people.

Yeah, you could prolly see down about 5-6 ft. If you wanna get a bunch I would think bowstring would be a good lake. I'd start on the south side of the lake by cow bay. Don't forget about the huge crappies in there, too. It's no secret. They can be tough to find, but it can be great once ya get on 'em!

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.
