I would try off the wall in front of the Shorline Resturant.and head north stay close to the shore until you get to the public landing and then follow the ledge.. 15-20 feet. that will take you over to Stoney Point..another area to try is off north point..follow the shore around to Sunset Beach resort.. that should get you some eyes..good luck

Smoker,
Get some shiners, and I heard leeches are working too for some people. I've fished a couple areas Resorter is talking about, but I've struggled for A walleye. I guess the word is that W. Battle is dead, but I've heard that plenty of times and had lots of success (this past winter when I moved here). It should heat up soon with warmer weather.

Resorter,
What do you mean by Stoney Point? I'm trying to learn all the names for these areas..

Thanks, I figured out where Stoney was last night. And your right, the lake is not dead. People always say that and I am not one to believe it. I found some eye's last night anyways! wink.gif

Stoney Point is just west of North Point..there are some reeds that come off it with a underwater rock reef...and W Battle is not dead.. just hard to fish...so much cover and drop offs to fish..but the walleyes you catch will be bigger is size.. seen alot fo 6 -8 pounders come from there...I use to own Sand Bay Resort so got to see some of those lunkers..I'm not much of a walleye fisherman.. perfer bass..but just know where the customers did their fishing...

Sounds great. I'm just a hop, skip and a jump from Battle. I fish it a lot. I'm going to do more 'ski fishing this summer. I can hardly wait for opener.

Check out the Muskie Forum on the "Strange Muskie" I found on Battle Lake a couple days ago. Maybe shed some input?

Yeah, the bass were tough going this past wknd, fished a number of lakes in the area, we caught a lot of bass, but it was definetly a struggle out there. Water temps were still a bit cold id say.

Hey Resorter, I finally have some time to check out the forums. The fishing was slow last weekend but I managed to get one 23 incher. Took a quick picture and let her swim. Even though the fishing was slow, we couldn't complain about the weather.

Every lake we go to we end up catching crappies!! It's ridiculous. I just wish I could get walleyes this easy! smile.gif

Hopefully this weekend I'll put more time on the eyes.

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.  
    • srj
      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
    • jigging-matt
      Nice pics.  Can't wait to get out this weekend and give it a try.

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..
