Bare Lakes

9 posts in this topic

After this weekend it will surely look different on the area lakes.

Almost looking forward to going to the lakes and not seeing all the villages. Nothing against perm's I do fish out of them also.

Just looking forward to getting to the lake and not seeing much, it will almost be like first ice again.

Some of these spots that get vacated by all the houses may once again see fish move back into them. Something to keep in mind in a few weeks.

I envy your optimism. i hate to say it but I'm guessing not much will change. There is a whole lotta houses out compared to past years. But I too hope you're right!

Next year I'll have a portable concession/ice shack!

I wrote way too soon. Man this season went by too quick! I didn't realize perm's had ot be off this weekend when I wrote the above. However I do agree-it'll be a relief. Sorry for still thinking I was in January I guess???

Hey Marbles give me a ring, going to that perch spot tomorrow around noon. Let me know if you're interested.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
