Headed out yesterday morning and got my two walleye limit pretty quickly. Also picked up about three undersized walleyes.
I trolled number six blades all along the flats between the bridges and the Bay. Trolled about 1.5-1.7
Surprisingly, my best producer was the purple blade
I agree on circle hooks, just remember you don’t need to set the hook hard just pull tight. When we go up to LOTW and fish in Canada you can’t bring in live bait so these use soda water instead. If that helps you feel better about killing your cut bait
Welcome to FM @burgoyne.
BBs advice is great. There are quite a few here who fish the area.
I'm guessing someone will be along shortly who can help you out.
Have fun and be sure to get some oics to show us how it's going.
work the area between Daisy and Banana Island, it's near where you're at. There are three hazard markers there, just be careful with your lower unit
There are plenty of Pike spots in Daisy Bay - study the map and follow the wind. 8-10' breaklines where the wind is blowing into. Look for mid-lake structure that support Ciscos and Perch.
Franconia or Somerset landings. Quite a bit of fishable shoreline at both spots. Boomsite wayside is fishable too, but there’s always way too many people down there, and too much boat traffic for my liking.
Got a report that my Father inlaw was out on the chain to see what he could find for Walleyes and said he landed a 18" and a 27.5" on the westside of the chain before the storms were rolling in. I hadn't talked to him but in this particular area I know we usually will use jigging raps instead of live bait due to the fact that the perch devour any live bait you put down.
