My buddy and I are coming up Thursday-Sunday this week. It appears a cold front is coming in Friday and Saturday. This will be three years in a row for these "fronts" to be coming in during this weekend and we generally have a tough time catching walleyes. We are staying at Muskego and will probably fish mostly west over to Frazer Bay in East.

Any advice anyone could give? Do walleye depths change? Bait changes?

Thanks in advance

PSU,

I just got back from Vermilion yesterday. Went out with Ace (local guide) on Saturday. Caught a few small walleye's but no keepers. I talked to a quite a few people on the classic spots and no one (except maybe Cliff) was catching much. People told me it was the worst fishing in years. The summer patterns didn't materialize because of the weather. To top it off, it is getting close to fall turnover. Having said this, I still enjoyed myself because of the scenery. The leaves just started to turn and next weekend should be close to peak. Hopefully fishing pick up for you next weekend, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

PSU,
It has been a very slow bite for most of us with the never-ending fronts!
I suggest you go very deep, fish very slow, and use all types of baits on lindy rigs if you hoit a front.
I am still getting fish on pike suckers and 1/2 crawlers.
Good Fishing!
Cliff

Any other insight from the pros? When going deep, how deep is deep? Looking for structure or fish on radar? Weather is looking VERY iffy at best. Any change in bait?

Thanks a bunch! Want some dinners!

This spring, we found them on the bottom 40 + feet down, soft areas. Awfully tough to keep the bait down there in the wind. I imagine the same areas we fished this spring will be the right places now.

Thanks MT!

Should be a VERY intersting four days of fishing! We have a guide for Friday am so hopefully he will help us find some walleyes. Any reports from the last few days, even though I am sure it will change due to the very cold weather coming in?

Thanks

I just follow Cliff's advice. Need to hook up with him again next season. Heck, maybe this winter...

Say, how did your dock deal go? Did I miss your dock bash?

Over the past few days had fairly consistent luck in the early evening (until about a half hour after sunset) sloooowwwww lindy rigging large rainbow chubs on long snells in 25-30 foot water near island structure.
