Fish hook lake area for walleyes???

11 posts in this topic

I have a family reunion coming up the first week of June and we are staying at some sort of camp on Fish hook lake. Where would be a good place to get some 'Eyes for a little fish fry close by?

Fish Hook has been hotter then snot lately. Lots of fish coming from that 23 to 27 foot range. potato has also been good, we were out there today and probably caught 20 eyes and 2 smallies. Swing by Northern Bait when you get into town i will point some spots out on the map. Jonah

south end of main street, we have a sign where you need to turn on 71, you turn west at Jones Pearson Funeral home, toward the hospital. Jonah

Fish Hook is still hot. I caught a 19, 18, and 25 on memorial day around 2-4 p.m. Depth varied from 18-30. My dad has been out every morning since monday and has caught two 25's, a 27, and a 28 as well as many nice eaters. He ranged from 18-35 FOW. Never had fishing like this before. Of course all the bigger fish released immedietely to be caught again smile.gif

Musky,

20 eyes sounds like an awesome outing to me! smile.gif

Did you catch them on Potato or Fish Hook?

I will be up your way starting Sunday afternoon until the following Saturday. Are you working Sunday pm? How are your Jumbo leeches looking? Are they running larger than earlier on in the season? It seems as though they have been smaller than usual (most of the bait stores I know)this year.

      Another guy went through on Hubert yesterday near brainerd. That's the third guy ( all on different lakes) that went through this week! In that area! Please don't go out! If you do don't be to cautious. The crow wing county sheriff highly recommended not going on any lake ice no matter what type of transportation. Stay home and watch the ice melt. I know This is the vermilion area but it was a open thread. Sorry.

      I am familiar with big water and big wind, and do my best to avoid that combination.

        +1 It can get real nasty real quick out there.

      You are right, mille lacs would be the last place you would want to be in the middle of during wind or a thunderstorm.

      Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!
