I will be camping at sugar bay campground on Pokegama the weekend of June 26th. Is there good shore fishing in the area? I ahve a 12 ft duck boat with a small trolling motor that I could bring with me, if it would be worth it. I have never fished this area, and any information would be very appreciated! Thanks in advance!-Later!~

I would bring your duck boat you dont have to go far to find some structure or weeds to get some fish and it isnt going to be real unprotected for you
good luck

Thanks, I will bring the boat with then. I'll just have to check out the lake map, and see what things look like when I get up there. Any advice on what type of bait/lures to use on that lake. Would like to catch a few Northerns and walleyes.

its hard to beat a plain old jig and minnow. I like 1/4 oz on pokey cause you tend to be a bit deeper with a shiner. there is lots of fish in pokey right now hope you do well

Hey Jason
Have you ever tried trolling Rapalas out there at night? We tried it a couple times by The Island. Caught some real nice walleyes in the middle of the night. 3 to 8 pounds. That was 15 years ago. I grew up 2 miles from Pokegama

I guess our trip was postponed until July 9th weekend. What's the latest news I need to know to catch a few fish on Pokie near Sugar Bay Campground? Any help is appreciated!! Thanks again!

Ducks and Fish

I do not know where the campground is, but I fished Pokegama for the first time this weekend. I fished panfish around different structure (docks, downed trees, lily pads, deeper weedlines) and caught rock bass after rock bass. It was fun because they fight well, but no crappies or gills so I stopped panfishing.

I did however catch a lot of 3 to 4 pound northerns and a decent number of 2 to 3 pound bass. The bass and northerns were caught on the weedlines in 8-15 feet of water. I found that any more shallow and you'll catch a lot of fish, but they will be extremely small, just as you would expect. All fish were released.

      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?  
    • delcecchi
      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.

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.
