The big ones are still biting.........for my wife

Recommended Posts

My wife and I got out for awhile this morning and found the big walleyes hungry. The area we were going to try had a couple boats already in the vicinity and, so, we moved on. I pretty much blanked out on my first couple of stops. I lost a pretty good fish at the first stop and caught a dink at the second spot. We weren't marking a lot of fish and decided to move to a different area of the lake. It was a good move. Immediately my wife got a hit and over the next hour, she caught and released 4 big slot fish and 3 smallmouth bass! In addition, we lost the biggest fish of the day right beside the boat and missed 3 others! Smaller walleyes were harder to catch than the big ones!Bouncing leeches right in the rocks did the trick. Water temps have reached 70 degrees in most areas of the lake. The coolest temps I found early morning were 68 degrees. We are still finding the high end eaters and the big fish right in the snags. I caught all of my fish today on a 1/2 crawler, plain hook, 1oz bouncer. As already mentioned, my wife used leeches.

Good Fishing,

MarkB smile

We went back out around 5:00 after I finished mowing the yard. We decided we wanted a couple to eat smile. We ended up with our eaters, a northern, 4 small bass, and 4 slot fish. This one was the biggest caught by my wife.....of course.

Good Fishing,

MarkB smile

It sounds like Mrs. B should be guiding the rest of us on the lake!

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish

      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
