Trip advice

4 posts in this topic

Thinking about a trip to V next summer and have not been there since the mid 1990's. Plan on fishing mostly for walleyes, but would also be spending some time chucking muskie baits depending on how the walleye fishing is going. My question for some of you guys who have fished the lake for a number of years, if you could only fish one week in June, July or August for walleye and muskies, what time period would it be. I know this is a tough question because things change from year to year, and we are talking about two different species of fish, but i am looking for your general impressions.

Thanks

I have fished the lake in august for about 7 years now and have to say the walleye bite always seems good. Don't fish muskie. We catch most of our fish in 15' and shallower.

I've always had my best luck in early June. Fish seemed the most "predictable". With that said, I can count on two hands how many times I've been up their in early June. crazy.gif

If you are chasing both muskie and walleyes I would have to say late July or August.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      When I fished Trout Lake a lot live Light Northers Suckers under a tip-up would out catch Ciscos every day of the week!

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
