Snow on the Lake

How does this affect fishing? Will be heading up there for the first time friday afternoon, staying at wigwams until Sunday. Don't wanna get skunked, what kinda tackle are the locals using? I've heard that Chubbys and Stop Signs have been working. Any advice for a metro area angler?? Thanks much!

Hey MM, You shouldn't have to worry about getting skunked on LOTW very often. Even when the bite is tough up north it is still better than a lot of other lakes. IMO if you stick with the proven LOTW lures you should have some success. Not saying fast and furious but you should manage some fish. My favorite lures are Stop Sign, AE & AE JR, Gold and rainbow forage minnow and fat boys. Gold and pink are my go colors. Spoons with a head and everything else with a full minnow. I have 4 CD's and they dont have many scratches on them. I have gone back to the basics and I'm catching more fish.

Good luck and let us know how u did

I just got back yesterday and the best lures for us were plain red hooks with a small fathead minnow. Also, small white glow jigging spoons worked if you had a vexilar to get the more aggressive fish. Our group of 8 caught 80 decent walleyes and saugers in 2 days out of Wheelers. We also ended up with about 20 Tulibee and 5 or 6 eelpout. All in all a fun trip. Good luck!

They are basically a whitefish. They're slimy and smell horrible, they'll stink the whole dang fishhouse up!! They fight pretty good though!

Tulibee are excellent smoked. Yup they do have a distinct odor about them, and the can fight. We have a meat market down our way that will smoke them for a $1 a fish pretty good with a little cheese and crackers and a cold one. Bill
