Waukon Bay (Need help!)

Recommended Posts

wallyeye

The company I work for is holding a fishing trip in two weeks and we are staying at Walleye Dundee's. I have never fished the south end of the lake and I was wondering what kind of structure I should be targeting. Any info is appreciated. We have alot of 1st timers going along and I would love to show them what it feels like to hook into some Walleyes.

Just look at the past posts, they list tons of locations / presentations on the south End. You will have a blast.

Don't forget about the mud either grin.gif

South end of the lake is mainly gravel beads and rock, the northern half of the lake is all mud flats with a few small gravel beds.

I can offer some help, try the reefs around spider island, basically look for the rock reef bouys and be there a couple hours before sundown. We have also done well dragging a crawler in the trench where Wahkon bay begins when it is hot out. Also try trolling for northerns along the weed edges in Wahkon Bay.

On a side note, are you from Iowa by chance? My hometown is Waukon Ia, and your post grabbed my attention.....

Good luck

Picks,

Funny you should ask about Waukon,IA...

I am not from there but I was just there today. The company I work for is contracted to install the sprinkler system in the addition being built on the high school. I didn't even realize I spelled Wahkon like Waukon,IA.

Thanks for the tips for spider island. I am really looking forward to getting up there and trying out my lakemaster chip. Catching some eyes would be nice too!

Hey Wallyeye,

What Sprinkler company do you work for? My Uncle owns one in Owatonna and they do some work in IA.

Later.

If you have a chip, you should do fine, just hit those rock reefs, there will be fish there at some point during the day, hopefully the wind will help out.

How do you like that stretch of concrete from the MN to Decorah? the worst section of road I have ever been on, and they fixed it 4 years ago.

That road is terrible. I actually stopped on the way down just to make sure it was the road and not a tire going down on me.

Wallyeye, the point that the resort is on holds some nice fish. Try 8-10 feet right around the corner towards the big lake. Otherwise, read some reports and you will find fish.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
