How's the fishing?

8 posts in this topic

I'm heading up tonight for a nice long weekend and am looking for any updates on how the fishing has been. Are the eyes still around 25 - 35 feet? What baits have been producing best lately? We were fishing a couple rock piles that were producing very well so I'm checking to see if their paterns have changed at all in the past week.

HI DAVID,

FISHING IS AWESOME, I HAD YESTERDAY OFF & FISHED WITH A COUPLE OF MY GOOD RETIRED BUDDIES, WE FISHED ALL SAND BAY AND HAD 4 WALLEYES IN THE SLOT, HAD A LIMIT OF 13 TO 16.75", AND RELEASED AROUND 15 SMALLER FISH. ALL FISH WERE CAUGHT 28 TO 35' WITH 4 FOOT LINDY'S, HOOKED WITH SHINNERS.

DID I SAY...I LOVE LIVING HERE LATELY???

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Fishmeister, it's good to hear that the fishing continues to be hot. I am headed for Woody's the last week of September and I can barely contain myself already. Keep the reports coming as I have already started to do my pre-trip scouting based on reports.

I am looking forward to stopping in and seeing you at Hardee's again and grabbing one of your excellent burgers. I have always been impressed with the service when I have stopped in and the food has always been great too.

Catch you later,

WINTERSE

Thanks for the info Fishmiester. Actually we'll be up there tomorrow but on the Canadian side on Redgut. Are the eyes still out on the reefs?

I fished Redgut yesterday mid day. The mid lake humps 30-32 FOW were active with eyes and smallies. Good luck.

Regards,

Wayne

Just got back from a 5 day trip up in the redgut area. Boated a lot of wally's, however only about 10 were in the slot. All the rest were under the slot. Even though we caught 269 fish (counted on new tally counter) this was the worst-as far as size and numbers that we have ever had. Usually considerably more in and above the slot. The only bonus is that the smallies and nice size crappies were going pretty good.

Was up 8/28-9/3 and had the same luck Wallabee had. Great #'s of fish but over all small. 5 fish in the 21" range and a few 17". Couldn't believe the number of 11-13" fish. Good to see for the future. Tried many different methods thinking the big fish were else where or looking for something different, but didn't discover it this time. All in all though, a tremendous time!

I fish sand bay almost every day between 4:00 and 8:00pm today(9/15) the walleyes were in 20 to 24 feet, but the big ones were all in 22 feet. I used an orange flicker spinner (tiny spinner) a 3/8 ounce sinker and a night crawler trolled around a reef and between me and my girlfriend we used up 3 doz worms in 3 hours kept 8 walleyes between 13 and 16 1/2 inches. Released a 27 inch, a 28 inch, three 25 inch and to many little eyes to count also caught one 13 1/2 inch crappie
