Wheeler's Point

5 posts in this topic

Heading up to Wheeler's point with a group this weekend (Thurs-Sun). Looking for some input as to how the bite has been, any lures we need to have and the fish house conditions. I've never been out of Wheeler's and don't know what to expect.

Thanks..

Plenty of posts on the area lately give them a good read over before you go and you'll have a good idea.

Pink jigs and rattlin varmits with either pink, or red or gold on them. I quit using a bare hook. A month ago that was the ticket this time was a very small pink jig with a minnow hooked eye to eye. Flasher was key. To trigger the strike I had to bring the fish up about a foot off the bottom and then they would either commit or go back to the bottom. Using a 1/4 oz jig was too big and I kept loosing the minnow. I went to a 1/16 oz crappie pink jig and that was the ticket. I also quit using the mono and went to crystal to get a better hook set. Good luck. Sure wish I was going again this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
