Fishing Allouez Bay for walleyes this spring

Recommended Posts

Heartman

Any tips or advice on how to fish Allouez Bay for walleyes this spring? I know the season doesn't open for another week, but am curious about trying ti out. Worked in SUperior a number of years ago and seem to remember guys talking about doing ok out there in the spring. Gotta' believe spinners or rigging would be the preferred method, but it's kind of a great big flat and wonder if there are certain types of structure to look for -

Many ways. Shallow sticks cranks and spinners long lined or off boards.

Haven't fished it for a while but it is pretty shallow and we used crawler harnesses.

Best time was when you had a stout west wind and fished on the east side. Boat control is tough but we had good luck under those conditions.

Good number of snags if you're not careful.

I feel it's alittle early for Allouez Bay and the water is pretty mucked up we usually do better in late June early July out there and usually it is cleared up a bit by then but it never hurts to try .... try pulling crawler harnesses and or a float rig with a leech.

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
