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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
