In reply to my own request for info: Pike Island N,S,E sides steep breaks immediately adjacent to the island Verticle Jig(1/2)-3/4) with Shiners and its point-active bite 15'in wind to 40&50'outlying(lindy with shiner/spinner-colored hook..chartruese in wind 13"-18" 10 fish 10/4. Mouth of Ash River 20'-35' Verticle Jig suspended fish otherwise soft floating jig or plain hook 48"-72" snell with shiner/chub. LARGER MINNOWS=MORE ACTIVITY!to 26" most outside the slot. Bouy Marker 26 in the channnel was popular-you'll see the boats . Bouy marker 23 HOT HOT HOT. SUSPENDED WITH SCH>OOLS OF BAIT FISH VERTICLE JIGGING OFF THE BOTTOM TO AS MUCH AS 15' OFF THE BOTTOM IN 30+ WATER. MY RECOMMENDATION-FISH RIGHT OFF THE SHORE WHERE THE MARKER IS LOCATED (ALL AROUND THE POINT) AND FOLLOW A LINE TO THE CHANNEL MARKER. LOCATED THE FISH with your lc and follow them NOTE THE CLOUDS OF SUSPENDED BAIT AND THE HOOKS INTERMINGLED>>>WALLEYE!

      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
