Moved in and fishing hard

5 posts in this topic

I am moved in to my place in the Falls.

Fishing has been good the past few days.

Got bass up to 5 pounds and walleye to nine. Not very many pike though. Tried for those Saturday but only a couple over 30"

Hope to spend more time on the water before it gets hard. Always looking for partners to share trips. I like bass and pike the best but will fish for whatever is biting.

Hi, we got back home Sunday, we did really well on the smallmouth and the pike, caught some walleyes but it was pretty windy during most of the week. Smallmouth we were catching on humps and any type boulders we could find on the canadian side and pike, (lots of pike, several really nice fish) we caught in bays with the cabbage weed in that had deep water close by. We did catch some walleyes in the same places we were catching smallmouths. Were catching the pike on a terminator white spinnerbaits with gold blades and the smallmouths on bandit crankbaits and glass shadraps. Caught so many pike we got tired of catching them.

My fishing buddy from Cable Wisconsin came up today. We fished from noon till dark and got about 50, mostly smallmouths. Herb10-2006.jpg

We did keep two smaller pike but all rest released.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?

      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!
