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.

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.

      First place to look would any of the local dams. Gull river, Mississippi, Crosslake, all have fish throughout the year.   There are a few piers to try as well.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?
