Lake Latoka

Recommended Posts

pwally

I will be fishing Lake Latoka on opener weekend. I know this isn't the best lake to fish for Walleye but my in-laws live on the lake so that is where we do most of our fishing.

If anyone has any input on what they've found works on Lake Latoka and is willing to share mainly depth to start with and what type of presentation that would be great. I'm not looking for any spots just input on what other people have had luck using on Lake Latoka.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

You should be able to get into some pike at the very least. Caught about 10 off a friends dock last summer just throwing bass spinners.

You are right about that. There is no problem catching Pike. I have done ok on crappies (certain times of the year), sunnies, largemouth bass and pike but haven't been able to get into the walleyes out on Latoka.

Latoka is tough, but when you find the walleyes they are very nice. Try working in 5-9FOW. Good Luck!

5-10FOW trolling with rapalas. Latoka is a recreational lake in the summer with high traffice. I've done awesome chasing eyes after dark in shallow water with rapalas. West shoreline has been best for me.

I appreciate the feedback. We have typically been in the 12-19 feet range so we have probably been fishing too deep, especially early in the year.

We've also tried on the bar that runs from Trout Point to Fireman's Lodge but haven't caught many there.

Jig and a minnow in the 9-12FOW just before sunset and after for about an hour.

Thanks all for the advice. We'll give those suggestions a try. I'll post a report after the weekend.

If anyone else has other things that have worked for them on Latoka and want to share, feel free. I'll be up there 2 out of the next 3 weekends trying for the elusive eyes on this lake. And also some sunfish action for my 8 year old son.

Good luck to all on opener weekend.

First I will say it was an awesome weekend on the lake. Great weather and great fun with my 8 year old son and my father in law.

There were more people fishing on Latoka than I think I've ever seen in the 16 years my in-laws have had a place on the lake.

We didn't find any walleye but did manage to catch lots of the hammer handle northers in Latoka.

We didn't fish after dark as we had too much fun during the day that my son was worn out and got too tired.

Hope you all did better on catching walleye than we did. If anyone got into the walleyes on Latoka, I'd love to hear about it.
