Kitchen staff is a big issue. The cook got fired recently but overall it’s owned/managed by not the brightest people. Same owners at moosebirds. I think they’re in over their heads. They had good pizza imo until they switched to the stupid wood fire pizza oven and created their own crappy crust recipe. They’ve been changing menus weekly and jacking prices-I’m sure some of that is reflecting the increased cost of groceries but not impressed at all lately. I know someone who works there and the help isn’t very happy either. Wolf bay is where it’s at lol.
BigV..... how things can change in a day. I fished from 8:15 until 11:45 this morning when I caught walleye #50. Probably the best morning ive ever had on the lake. Lindy rig and half crawler was the method. This morning when you graphed those pods of fish they bit.
As far as the lake in July and August? Personally August is my favorite month. Typically when you locate fish they bite. Wind blown areas holding perch minnows is what I concentrate on. Quite often it's sand pockets for me. That was the key today as the fish were coughing up perch minnows. Fishing always snaps back into shape when they get off the bugs. Soon the basin will be alive with the trollers. I really like the leadcore bite. Usually the quality of the fish caught is quite good. I'll be fishing walleyes the rest of the week hopefully continuing to report an improved bite.
Same! It’s been terrible for me. I always blame myself but I feel like rumor around the lake is that it isn’t worth fishing for walleyes after June or before September. I hope that’s not the case and it is just me lacking knowledge.
Fished Whitefish both Sunday and Monday from about 6AM until 10AM each day. Used only artificial lures. Trolled weed edges some of the time with Shad Raps #8 size, and then a little deeper with the #9 size Flicker Minnow. Only caught one 29 inch Northern trolling. Spent about 1/2 of the time casting a jig and soft plastic into about 12 ft to 18 ft where there were decent, but not great weeds. Caught several small Northerns plus 2 more that were 27" and 28". The bonus was a 17.5" Largemouth. No Walleyes either day.
Monday had several "bite offs" on the soft plastics. That is kinda the problem with using them where there are Pike.
