The northerns really started to bite this weekend so hopefully that is a sign that the walleyes are soon to follow. I caught 7 northerns in about a 1/2 hour of trolling.

you guys ever (or know of anyone) 0fish that lake for Lake Trout? I plan to give it a shot here on the fourth but would be interested in finding out if anyone has had any success.

From what I've heard, you can put alot of time out on Pokegama with minimal results. If you have really good electronics, head down into the Sherry's Arm area, and try downrigging or three way rigging some spoons or cranks. There is a population of smelt in the lake so if you can find them, I'd say the laker's and maybe a bonus big northern or walleye are possible. I'd start around the thermocline, which I'd guess is somewhere in between 30 and 40 feet and start trollin', trollin', trollin'.
Another option is to head north on hwy 38 and try Caribou Lake. Alot less water to cover and a higher population of laker's too, I believe.

I'm heading up to Pokegama for the first time this weekend. I'll be staying off of 169 in town. I've looked at the DNR site and noticed there are a few public landings on the lake, but they don't give specific street locations.
I'm assuming based on where I'm staying that King's Landing is the closest. Followed by Mishawaka. Is King's Landing located near the golf course?

the Pokey access at kings landing is just west of the golf course. It's not the best landing. I always pass that one up and go to the one at Tioga Beach ... much better ramp plus there is ample parking. Kings has limited parking. It's about a 5 minute boat ride from the kings landing area.

I haven't spent much time on Pokey yet this year, however I've heard the walleyes are starting to bite in the evenings ... would be well worth a few hours of trolling this weekend.

Thanks fot the tips. Brother in law lives on stony point so that was my plan to give sherrys arm a shot for the lakers. Who knows?? Will probably run some cranks along Drumbeater as well hoping to pop some of those underfished walleyes on that lake.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!
