How deep.........

4 posts in this topic

I was just wondering how deep everyone is fishing.We have been in 18'for the last 3-4 weekends.We moved the house this week to 27'.Just wondering what depths seem too be producing active fish. Anyone and everyone lets hear how deep everyone is and how you're doing. Oh and by the way in 18' we caught 1 10" walter, and about 3 dozen 5 in. perch, using everything u can think of, even had a buddy up there 2 weeks ago that made his own strucure on a string out of raw materials from a lawn and gardening store(looked pretty good too) and that didn't bring us any thing besides alot of those small perch. Anyones response is appreciated

i've always been told 90% of the fish are in 10% of the water on a lake. Find the 10% and you should be good. Sorry I wasn't more help but when the bites tough around the whole lake you really need to be mobile and find the fish.

We were up on the 29th and found fish in 23-24'. Mostly perch. 1 maybe two walleyes on but not caught. i know that was a while ago, but we have had pretty good luck in that spot (SW)

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
