16ft boat this weekend & location?

4 posts in this topic

I am headed up their tommorow night through Saturday night to do some trolling. The weather is predicting 15-20mph S/SE winds up their as of now. My boat is a 16ft Mr.Pike with a 35hp on it. My plan was to fish over on the west side shallow rocks, but with these wind my I feel my boat may be unsafe. Where on the south end would you recommend fishing with the setup I have? I am looking to be trolling in the 4-10 ft range.

Also, where should I launch?

Thanks in Advance!

I'll be out in my 16 Predator on the southern half of the west side. Based on the forecasts I've checked it looks like the wind will lay down a bit by dusk. Time will tell I guess. If it doesn't the south side out of Wahkon or Isle has good structure close to shore. I would avoid the rtwin island area as it's quite trecherous when the water levels are normal. Although I'm not sure what shape the boat launches are in with the lower water levels there.

I cant help you on the south side this time of year. The wind direction will dictate everything. If its more of a southern direction the west side bays shouldnt be too out of control.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
