That fishery needs some special attention regulations-wise. It's still a fabulous fishery, buuuttt there are still too many meat-hunters that double dip when the fishing is hot. Nav

Most definately agree on changes being made there, as far as meathunters are concerned I find it hard to believe one could double dip a limit of keeper size fish on that lake anytime throughout the year. I know there are decent fish in the lake, but there are far to many eyes there that are under the size limit. This is the closest lake from where I live and I spend a lot of time fishing for walleyes out there along with a couple of my buddies, it is not uncommon to catch a 100-200 eyes in a half day, but odds are you won't have more than one or two that are above the size limit. If the DNR does what I hope it does, in a couple of years it should be fantastic fishing out there.

      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
