Has anyone fished Trout recently? I am thinking of getting up there this coming weekend and would like to hear how people are doing. Thanks!

What are the catching in the bay by the elementary school. I always see people out there fishing, I just have not made it out there to check it out. Any ideas what and if they are catching anything?

walleyes and northerns usually not alot of people know but theres is a bar that runs down the middle of the bay.
a shiner or sucker about a foot off bottom usually does the trick out there. like 24 or 26 feet of water cant quite remember.
good luck

If you move up on that bar, in about 13-15 ft., you can get into some nice 'gills and some crappies. That's what most of those houses are fishing for out there.

good fishin

Hi, we are hoping to come up to coleraine tomorrow (Wed) and fish Trout Lake for awhile. Can anyone update us on ice conditions etc? Have people been driving on it? Weak areas? Lost a guy about 100 yards from our permanent this week so we are leary. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Just heard from an old timer that Trout Lake has about 20" of ice on it, and some good reports of large northerns and eyes also. They are driving all over now on the lakes.

      Yesterday was the first time I have noticed all of the dead smaller minnows floating around in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. Friend of mine who knows the lake as well as anyone indicated it may be perch minnows choking on spiny water fleas. If so, that's a bit disconcerting.....Can anyone confirm? Slow for me mid to late afternoon yesterday in the area fishing for walleyes..

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.
