Where's the Northern? Island Lake

3 posts in this topic

First time poster here! Just moved to Island Lake from Chicago(go bears,sorry). I can't believe how much attention Walleye get up here. I'll leave that up to you guys but where on Island can I get good fall pike action. I've been only gettin' 2 pounder snakes(still more fun than in Chicagoland). I live on the east end and really only fished that end using spinner baits, divers etc. Any help for a rookie?

I always seem to get more fish either eyes,pike or bass on the west side. I like trolling Reef Runners but do ok on spinners as well. On the east side the point to the west of the gun club always seems to put out a few pike in the boat trolling deep diving sticks. Yellows seem hot for the pike up there.

diehardangler, welcome aboard. I don't target pike but if I did I'd start out by finding the schools of shiners that have come shallow. Weeds are a magnet for them right now.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
