Finally going to make it up there

12 posts in this topic

I can't believe how fast one's calendar can fill up during the summer.

I usually make it up there 4-5 times a summer to visit family, fish etc.

This will be the latest as I'll be up there 6/30-7/4, staying at the Bay.

I will have my small 14ft alum with me and mostly fishing alone in the early morning and evening. If anyone is interested getting together or also alone looking for some company let me know.

I'll fish for anything, but wouldn't mind targeting muskies for a while.

Just confirmed my room, can't wait to get away for a while.

I just don't know what I'm going to fish for....

What seems to be cooperating lately?

I'll probably just anchor in front of Muksy Tom's dock as I know there are NO fish there wink.gif

The bug hatch seems to have shut the walleyes down at least for me anyway. I would try for some smallies.

The last couple of days has been very slow for me too. tongue.gif

Just to many bugs for the walleyes to eat right now!

THere were very few bugs on the water this morning and I did not see many clouds of bugs on the bottom.

Maybe they are just about done! tongue.gif

Cliff -

What is, if any, the usual lag time between when you don't see anymore of the bugs and when the walleye fishing picks back up?

Hey Dtro if you see a couple giddy guys without wives and 2 year olds in a big red Skeeter swing by and we can compare notes...From the sounds of it we'll be fishing bass and maybe a little muskie fishing...If you see us WITH wives and 2 year olds maybe swing by and make sure we have enough beer left.. grin.gif We will be spending all our time on the East end..

I'll keep my eye open and try to do my best to keep you supplied if I can help wink.gif

It will be easy to spot me. I'm sure I'll have the only boat that says "Catcraft" on the side grin.gif

Casey. Shoot me an email if you want to go fishing sometime this summer. Mayflies were still hatching last night but not as many. Some midges starting. Eyeballs should pick up soon. smile.gif

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
