Apple river

Recommended Posts

Just got back from the river. What a great night on the river. We caught about a dozen eyes. 4 legals. These where the first legal fish I have caugt down by the mouth of the apple river. This was my third trip down there. There is alot of water down here compaired to up by fronconia where i usually go. Its going to take some time to learn this new water. I like the depth of the river comparied to the northern part and the submerged weeds are not very present up there either.
I have been a regular on the river for the last 4 years and still cant get anough off it.
Good luck fishing

Sounds like a good day. What was the presentaion of choice for them up there? I like that area up there too. Haven't had too good of luck lately but could never stay away for long because I know what the St. is capable of.

I think they would of hit on anyhting you put in the water. We caught them on a jig with crawlers, trolled. Not my normal way to fish jigs but the boy insisted on dragging it around. Draged some crawler harness around also. Gold spinners. I pulled a red and white walleye diver. My neighbor was pulling some other kind of crank bait. They hit on everything. The cranks caught most the fish but more smaller fish. It was a short trip so i didnt really try to see if they where hitting on one thing better than the other. As the fall moves in the eyes up here seem to bite on what ever you put in front of them.
I am hoping to camp down by the apple some where Sat. night and spend some more time searching the area for fish. Three trips down there and have only found fish in one spot. It sounds like Sun. morning should be a good time to do this.
Anyone been out north of Osceola in the last week. The eyes should be picking up up there soon. Hot tip. There should be some nice eyes hanging off the south point of the park in Osceola. Near the dock. The best eyes need to be fished from a boat there due to the timber under water next to shore.

Good luck fishing

      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?

      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.

      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.
