fished in the permanent house saturday, sunday and today, caught 5 walleyes about 14-16 inches, and probably about 20 that were below 12 inches, kinda frustrating but the future is looking bright for the lake, did get into a really good panfish bite!! BIG sunnies and crappies really really fun!!

Were the panfish in the same spot as the eyes? How deep?

Well I just got back after fishing two nights in Walker bay. The first night was slow (but very high pressure) I caught just two walleyes but one was 23". Also and eight pound eelpout.

The next day I checked out Grandvu for perch but ended up just putting the camera down in a bunch of spots and not even fishing. In the afternoon headed to a different hump and there were perch and walleyes on the camera right away. Unfortunately the walleyes were from 3-10" only, but they were everywhere. Then from a little after four to 5:30 or so I caught 19 walleyes alone. One was 27" and he was suspended 10ft off the bottom. Otherwise most were from 10-14". Didn't matter what color or type of jig. Used shiners, rainbows, suckers, and even the mudminnows (or whatever they are that get mixed in with your bait) and everything worked equally.

In Walker bay the slush was all froze and you could drive anywhere with 4 wheel drive. This wasn't the case at Grand Vu, I got stuck pretty good in a slush pocket.

The humps in the bay have been good. Cedar Point is going well in the evening too. There is a road plowed from Cochran's Marina out to the point. Tippman is right about the small fish...there are a TON of them, like he said though, great outlook for the future. Kinda nice to have the lake back the way it used to be, better arguably. Looking forward to getting back out there soon!

Yeah, I have not seen it but I know a guy that has been fishing at cedar and getting there that way. Have heard it from a few others as well.

      All right man I'll make sure to tell you how I do, I have also been looking at the sunrise river. The sunrise Looks like one of those rivers that all the local kids fished in the 80's, But then it got polluted and over fished. I'll Try the sunrise one of these days, I don't know what i'll catch,  Maybe it's like in the Simpsons with those Three eyed fish.    As for the rum river, I can't wait to fish that. I'll wait for a nice cold front when all those small mouth start to eat everything in site, They need the fat for winter. I'll make sure to tell you how it goes.

      I started using a chain hoist like this 2 years ago. Much easier for one or two people than a rope block & tackle. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004PX1F9S/ref=psdc_511406_t1_B009F257DE?th=1

      I thought I read some where Cliff mentioned 66-67 over the weekend and it'll start to slide now with cooler temps.

      Although not level related, can someone tell me what the current water temps are in the main lake, Big Bay  Cliff ? I am coming for a week a the end of the month. Thanks very much

      Really, do you think it will handle 19 Bucks? 🙄    😅

      rayguy how has the fishing been the last week?  I know the weather hasn't been  ideal but hopefully you have been out.  I won't be up this weekend but will be back up next Thursday to catch the Vikes game at a local watering hole and then fish most all day Friday and Saturday.  Hoping to get another report from you closer to Thursday next week also! 😁

      click hereSuper-Handy Heavy-Duty 4,000 LB Capacity Rope Hoist look at it on amazon. 19 bucks. I bought one about 10 years ago and love it. I can raise a big deer by myself with this one. So glad I bought it since I do the butchering. I raise them up, tie legs off to rafter with a rope so it doesnt spin and skin away.

      Any thoughts about stocking perch of other forage base in this water to keep the walleye from canabalizing the younger year classes?

      Tough day of fishing for this guy today, ended up with about dozen eyes kept a limit of 13.75"-18"ers... I must have drove around for 2 hours before I even wet a line...Pretty sure I zippered every rock reef in big bay and to the east... I finally found some fish in a 30+ foot hole next to a sand hump... I found my best spot a couple hours before I planned on taking off (of course it was .5 mile from the access) 21-24ft sand/rock transition right by an island. I was surprised with how many people were out for a weekday in the fall.

      I was just telling my wife how I used to look forward to your detailed reports on here from my dads account on the way to the cabin years back, then I switched over to YouTube to enjoy Casey Sunsdahls updates. If I have time before we come up on our spring trips I will even go deep diving years back that have the same ice out dates to try to gain more insight on new locations to try. Sure miss your reports and hope you and yours find some luck. I will report Monday with our findings as we are also forced to come earlier than we would like, hope we can help narrow the search for Waldo! PikeMaster
