working around the islands have always been good to me, otherwise the hole out in front of the resort has always been good, girlfriend has a cabin at Sunset resort, so we fish it often other wise, i have picked some walleyes on accident fishing dummers bay, usually i fish bass though, they are a lot of fun. jigs, and lindy rigs with gold spinners have worked for me, worst come to worst try the big pond.

I was out on Sat. Temp was 51 in the bay to the west. All that we caught were small sunnies and 1 crappie.

The opener should be good even though the temps are not going to be that high. I have a couple of spots where i think the crappies might be hiding. also i have to watch out for the dogfish

My dad and I used to use the bow-spear for dogfish in the shallows on a lake nearby. It was a lot of fun. I think we are going to start on FI trolling crankbaits because I was unable to get up and scout. We will sure to be getting some northerns at least that way!

We were fishing the bay to the left of the access. That is where the water temp was 51. Don't think it will change much this week.

JVinny, were you fishing way back in the bay, or outside the bay. Also where was the temp 51 degrees? thanks

We were very successful this weekend at our attempt to only catch hamerhandles and rock bass. Had a little trouble finding the walleyes.

didnt spend much time fishing walleyes because of a bad wind but we got into some crappies and northerns. Also caught many bonus largemouth. My walleye hole didnt produce the numbers it should have. I will be up next weekend and with the higher tems the fish should start to turn on more.

Did anybody chase any walleyes on FI this weekend? I will be giving it a try again next weekend.

Was out on FI Saturday but couldnt go out sunday cause of the wind. We tried walleyes on Johnsons point, but didnt have any luck. We fished crappies for a while and caught 5, all were 12" and bigger. Had a lot of other action though. The bass kept us busy. I think next weekend the crappies will hit prime time.

Farm holds very few nice crappies like it use to. post spots on the net will only hurt that lake even more.

he could be bsing us all on the lake. I have fished the lake many times and the only place that i have ever caught crappies is next to the church camp petersons bay is amazing for bass though. With all the reeds and deep drops the bass love that spot.Just tie on either a white spinnerbait or white plastic worm and pitch it into the weeds and you will get fish. Plus added northern

Farm holds nice Crappies, but the key word is they are SCATTERED.

I fished the Cabela's Crappie tourney a few years ago out there. I found Crappies in about 6 different spots with the biggest ones being about 13.5 inches.

We did well enough to take 2nd place in the pro division of that tourney, but I have not been back to that lake since.

Farm holds a good population of huge Rockbass as we found out, and they are more then easy to catch this time of year. Not the best table fair though.

Good fishing,

      There were a lot of ATV/SxS running around the lake but I found it quite slippery even with AWD engaged.  I did see a couple of snowmobiles crossing the lake.  There is enough snow to keep the slides lubricated, especially when the temperature is above freezing.  If your track is studded that would help traction and slide lubrication.

      It looks like it's ATV/SxS season on the lake. Snowmobile season is on temporary (or permanent) hiatus.

      Was back Tuesday-Thursday this week after I discovered that walleye season ends on Sunday, February 25th.  I thought that the season has closed the last day of February in recent years.  I see that I fished on Monday, February 28th two winters ago so lucky I didn't get busted then.   The ice was in very good shape.  I found 15-18 inches of solid ice in the areas I checked.  There was no standing water on the ice and very little snow as shown in the 3 pictures of the McKinley Park landing from Thursday afternoon.  When the temperature was below freezing, the ice was very slippery.  When it warmed up mid day it wasn't as bad.  The landing was starting to deteriorate today, but with the cold weather on Friday it should freeze over.  It may start to get bad again by Sunday when it warms up.  Full size vehicles were still driving out close to Birch Island so apparently that path is still good.   Fishing was very good for late season.  Most of my walleyes were again 9-12 inches, but I did catch a 21, 24, and 27.  I was lucky to catch my limit of 14-15 inchers today to bring home for a meal.  The walleyes preferred small rainbows, but also liked lively chubs.  I caught four fish on the same small rainbow today when I was running low on small ones.  I finally gave up on that minnow when I went 20 minutes without a bite.  I had 3 rainbows come off the hook on their own; one when I dropped it in the hole and the other two when I dropped them to the bottom.  I think that happens when you hook them in the soft part of their body.  I caught my first tulibee of the winter (15 inches) and it really stunk up the house.  I also caught a lot of perch for the first time this winter.  I only caught 1 perch the previous 14 days I fished, but I caught 11 perch in these 3 last days, including six that were 11-13 inches long.  I wish I liked to eat perch so I could have kept them.  The hardest bite I had this week was by the pictured 8 inch walleye.  This little guy grabbed that full sized minnow and pulled it quickly to to bottom of the hole.  (However the 27 inch walleye did peel off a bit of drag bringing her in).  Morning bite from 830 to 1230 was best.   If you venture out the last weekend of the season, good luck.  Be cautious of ice conditions since the sun can really melt some holes in the ice this late in the season.
