Hittin' the water Wednesday

4 posts in this topic

Any word on the bite so far? I'm putting in at the bluffs. Walli1, if you see this, do you think the spots we fished will be good tomorrow around 9 or so? I don't have time to run up and get some redtails. We are going out with minners and probably grab some suckers. Just plan on jiggin'. I'll give a report when I get back tomorrow night. If the bites slow I will probably pull out and hit a metro lake.

Hey Sandmannd, You know that area I took you to and caught those fish, find that tip and work that steep drop, I sent a friend down that way yesterday with the gps spot and he did really well using gold jigs tipped with a fathead, if you see a red skeeter with a WI in the front, say hi to Jim he lives in hudson, he usually fishes around the 94 bridge area, we trade spots and info. I'm hooking up with him this saturday morning for fun and fishing, can't wait! grin.gif

Went out on the bluffs launch at 11AM. No luck, didn't even track any fish. Saw some bait fish but that's it. I couldn't find the steep drop, trolled looking though. Good news is my new boat is waaaaaay better than the last one. I now have a 16.5 foot Alumagraft Navigater with a 75hp Merc on the back. The other good news is Blue Ribbon bait has Redtails!!! Tried redtail on a snell and also jiggin fatheads. Couple of small bites, but no fish. We were out for 4 hours. Maybe wrong time of day. Anyway, I'll just have to try again.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
