Weekend's Best Bets

Recommended Posts

Guest

So, what are the best bets for the average angler this weekend? I've not been out for a week or so, but the last time I was, walleyes were in about 12-15 feet of water on Rice and Koronis, but without much size from either lake. Have the walleye moved deeper by now? Any insight or recommendations would be great.
Stay Safe!

Happy fishin'

Fitchwolf- If the wind picks up like it is supposed to the best place will be inside by the fireplace. But, if you do want to brave the conditions I would recommend heading East a little and giving the Horseshoe Chain a try. They are driving on now and the fish are really biting.ScottS

I would like to restate the above question for this coming weekend. I have a brother coming into town from Texas, and he wants to get out. Has the weather slowed things down? What time of day? Any info. is appreciated. Thanks.

jpwags- If I wanted to catch fish I would go to Rice or Cedar Island lakes. The crappies have been biting on both lakes pretty well. If you fish Cedar Island, where I have been fishing the whole year, I would recommend being set up by 4 PM. The bite has been earlier this year and the action has been fast. I have been catching between 20-40 crappies a nite, just enjoying the action. You can not miss the spot, look for all the houses. There is a good access off HWY 22. I have been fishing in about 23 ft of water. The walleye had been biting pretty good but have slowed considerably as of late. Good luck.ScottS

Mac-1 been fishing in the crappie bed in front of fishers for crappies. The bite has been slow their on the vexilar in 26 to 32 feet 3 to 6 feet off the bottom the fish being caught are really nice. Walleyes seem to be on one night and off the next, stick to it though and find a spot to yourself in 15 to 17 foot best bite has been 4 to 6 oclock pm.

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
    • ozzie
      Sounds good!  I won't be up this weekend but in the future I will look for ya!  I am in a couple different boats but a Lund Tyee is what I would be in most often with a 200 merc on the back.
