I have been up for opener the last two years and noticed a shallow nightime feeding

frenzy, but the lake seems to turn into the dead sea during the day; granted i dont

know the lake and my fellow resorters are from iowa and are thrilled with prospect

of frying up rock bass and bullheads, but could someone please help me with

general daytime depths, structure, feeding patterns ect. I am not asking for gps,

names, or places, just freindly advice. also any helpful information stays in the

lake, i pinch my hooks and use a catch and release net. thanks

Be looking for some humps around 15 to 18 feet of water. I know that might seem alittle deep but early in the year it seems to work alright. All those fish that are up shallow at night move out to breaks and a place to suspend and find baitfish so that could be a key place to look at the nearest break.

double H,

thank you for your reply. apparently you are the only one who has bagged

an eye during the day. I have fished the break by trolling crank and swim bait

but only ended up with slimers, are the eyes hunkered on the bottom and not as aggressive as they are at night?

don't neglect the weeds either. walleyes are typically low-light predators...during the high sun daylight they'll either move to deeper darker climes, or the shade. Drake's got good advice, and I know he can catch 'eyes in the daytime. you could try jiggin the humps or trolling a lindy rig to find the active 'eyes. they may indeed be hunkered on the bottom edge.

Gman,

in the weed beds and am going to give it a go this season, but could you or someone else explain where in the bed i am suppose to be jigging? above,

outside, the bottom, ?ft inside. thanks

There are eyes in those weeds, just ask team otter. The way I fish the weeds is , using crawlers I use a 4 foot snell with a couple of split shot right at 4 ft. and retreive just fast enough to tick the weeds. Same goes for using a hot in tot or walleye diver, slow is the answer. Fish right over the top of the weeds, those eyes are hiding in the pockets or holes in the weed bed.

Rookie if you could give me your email address I could help you out alittle more! Also like "efgh" said try using those crawlers and stick to 3 or 4 inch snells alot of those breaks are steep and its hard with a swimbait or crankbait to stay down a foot or 2 off the bottom but if you use those 3 to 4 foot snells

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
