Wahkon Bay Report 12-14/12-15

2 posts in this topic

Got out friday afternoon with the wheeler out of wahkon bay. There are plowed roads and vehicles driving out to half moon island. Fished the just past the island in about 16-20 feet. Picked up some perch, but no size. The ice just past the island is fine, but there seems to be another layer of ice under the top layer. Must have blown under when the main lake was freezing. Made clearing the holes a little tricky. You needed to push the ice down and chip at it and scoop like crazy. I did not make it out of the bay, but did see a few people on wheelers and snowmobiles venture out of the bay.

The bite turned on at 4:30 and ended at 5pm. I iced a few walleyes. 10,22 and 24 incher. Saturday was similar. Slow going during the daytime bite and picked up at 4:30 again. Ended up with a nice perch and a couple walleyes. A 14, and a fat 27. Looking forward to some more exploring soon!

Thanks for the report Fishalot. Sounds like you did pretty good for having such a small window of "bitetime".

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
