WALLEYES ON LOBSTER

4 posts in this topic

ANYONE HAD ANY LUCK FISHING FOR WALLEYES ON LOBSTER. I'VE HAD GOOD SUCESS ON OPENER BUT NEVER PERSUED WALLEYES AFTER THAT. I'VE HEARD ON THIS LAKE THAT ALOT OF WALLEYES ARE WEED DORMANT. IT DOESN'T HAVE ANY "GREAT" STRUCTURE FOR WALLEYE AND HAS MANY PREDATORS ROAMING AROUND. BUT I KNOW THEY'RE THERE. aT THIS TIME OF YEAR I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO TARGET THEM BECAUSE THEY ALWAYS SEEM TO BE ON THE MOVE OR IN A SPECIFIC AREA OF THE LAKE. ANY HELP WILL DO THANKS

My inlaws have a cabin on the lake and I too have struggled to find fish later in the season. Last year we caught many of them off of their dock (1-3 per night) from May until mid July. After that they seemed to disappear. Often times we can pick up a stray walleye when out jigging weedlines, but this never developes into any kind of pattern. This year has been more of a struggle so we have been visiting other lakes.

Because I live on Lobster I know this to be a fact. There are no fish in Lobster, they all left. You need to try another lake smirk.gif Ok all kidding aside, the water temps are still in the high 50's (59 as of yesterday) give it a couple of more weeks then look for some very guick breaks, if you are framiliar with Lobster you know where they are or a sunken island ( not the one by 114) combine that with some redtails from Christophersons (8 dollars per dozen) not to bad compared to last year when they were hard to get and once you put the two together you should have a couple of weeks of good, not great walleye fishing on Lobster. Lobster has a average lift count for walleyes and there are lakes in the area that produce far more walleyes than Lobster.

      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
