Richmond Area Trolling

Recommended Posts

terrible_fisherman

Anybody have any ideas on trolling in the evenings or at night for eyes in the Richmond area? Typically I do not fish for eyes this time of year but have a cousin coming up for the weekend and wanted to give it a try. mhodsd00@hotmail.com

Thanks for any information.

Try Big Lake, there are quite a few walleyes there.

Mostly small ones.

I personally would give the weedlines on Big fish a shot! There are some real brute eyes in there and night fishing them will be your best option.

Do you mean Big Fish Lake by Avon?

Yes between Cold Spring and Avon off of county rd 50. Koronis also is a good night time trolling lake, Borch is the master of night fishing this gem maybe he can chime in for a few tips.

On Koronis work the inside or outside weed edges. So you'll usually run 8-12 fow or 3-5 fow. The night bite has been slow thus far this summer but it should pick up.

I did not realize there was enough water in Koronis to still get the boat in!! I guess all this rain will probably have helped.

Borch: You been out on Rice lately? Am I going to be able to get my boat off the lift? If not I can always just get into the evening eye bite off the end of the dock.

Plenty of water to get the boat in on Koronis even before the rain.

Peter,

I haven't been on Rice for a while now. I'd guess that Rice jumped up significantly after the rain the past week. It usually does anyways.

I was on Big Fish last night, got quite a few LM bass, a few nice crappies, some smaller gills and a few skinny pike.

No luck on the walleyes, I think the water needs to cool off more, or try and do some night fishing.

The water temp was 71 on the main lake.

      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.
