Independence Walleyes

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone had any look fishing walleyes on Independence yet.Haven't been out there this year but have caught some nice ones out there in the past.Just wondering if it is worth the trip to head out there and catch a few and release them.

Haven't been out there this year yet or heard much but have had luck out there in the past trolling shad raps just south of the island in the evening. I would think that the point on the east and west about halfway up from the landing would be good spots to try. I'll be out there in the AM checking it out. Anyone have any luck out there yet? It's nice to get out there before you have to worry about getting hit in the head with a bulldog, bucktail or run over by a ski boat or jet ski. grin.gif

Unfortunately plans got scrapped because my girlfriend woke up sick this AM. Hopefully can get out soon. I'm guessing this morning was a good bite with all the clouds and that nice SSW wind

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
