Week of 11/17 Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

Alphid

Well, last night was one of those crazy nights that you wonder what you are thinking about. I was heading home and I called my buddy telling him that it would be a great night to get on the lake, the moon was out and it was relatively warm. My friend who usually is a little more reluctant to just go on the whim says that he will go if I want to, so we get a weather report. It was a favorable report, low winds, not getting too cold as night progress, and mostly clear. Needless to say, we went out, leaving at 6 and getting up there about 7:30. We ended up starting fishing about 8. Here is the story that you probably want to hear.
About 5 minutes into fishing I hit about a 25" fat walleye, about 5#. It fought surprising better than most of my fish this fall. About a half hour later I got another one. This was about 24" and was equally fat and was a good 4-5#. My friend using a Clown jerk bait switch to the firetiger (the only color working for me this year) after seeing my results. About an hour or so later he finally got into one. It was about 24" and was a good 4-5 again. I got another on about 5 minutes later and this was the big one for us. About 26-27 and was a good 6, closer to 7#. A very good looking fish and surprising a strong fighter. My buddy then proceeded to catch a couple more both were about 22-23" and were fat. We ended up getting off the lake about 12 but didn't have a fish in the last hour. All in all, 6 fish, low winds, great moon light, and comfortable weather, a great night to be out there.
We caught all of our fish on the firetiger husky jerk, in about 10-12 feet of water. It seemed that the fish were relating close to living weeds and grouping around the same areas. After we got one we would loop back around and get another one in the same area. It also seemed as though the fish were hungry also. The fish hit great, had the bait well into their mouths, and fought well the whole time, a change from previous outings. We were moving as slow as possible with our motor, occasionally making big turns, kicking out of gear (slowing down).
I think there might be a couple nights left of some great action prior to ice up. Hopefully the weather holds warms and the nights are clear and I will be out there.

Alphid,

Sounds good to me. I am out of here and headed up to the pond right now. I should be fishing around 1pm this afternoon. I will most likely fish til around 10 or 11 tonight.

I think I will hit the northeast end sand areas using minnow baits and expanding from there depending the outcome.

If anyone will be out there today.I will be in a blk/slvr lund angler with a 50hp yammy on back. Stop by and say hello.

Got out last night and launched out of Shabosh Kung. Had four fish. My biggest was a 26 the size of a football. Another boat had 5 with a 27. The fish were huddled together and very sparse but if you found one you would usually get another in the same area, then it would shut down. Ice is starting to form in the bay. The water temp was 34.8 out at 14 feet or so and 33.7 closer to shore. The walleyes I caught were in the 14-15 foot range. Last week we were getting them in 7-10.

Fathead/Waterwolf,
How did you guys do? Just wondering. I am possibly thinking about going up again this weekend, but with the weather, we will see. Before we know it I think the ice is going to be forming. Where did the season go?
Mykal-glad to see that you got some. I be in touch with you.

A, We plan on fishin' indian point this evening around 5 or so Me and Basspastor in my boat, Gem eye guy and his friend in his boat. If we get fish tonite, we might be out again Sat. evening as well. Look for the 14 ft aluminum boat plain aluminum colored with the 20 hrs Johnson and homemade rubber splashguards. We are planing on trolling indian point, but if they are not biting there, we could try in front of eddies, where BP has got some nice fish from shore, or rocky reef.
I jhust hope it is clear out so we get some good moonshine smile.gif

Wen't fishin' at indian point with bassputz, and gem eye guy. it was miserable to say the least, got out there arouind 6 pm to be greeted with 10 foot waves that froze to everything on contact! No fish , then went over to fish in front of eddies, nice and calm there. No fish there either. Fished the point again today around 9. huge waves 50 mph winds and snowing like crazy. and no fish! I think I am done for the season on the dead sea! Mabye if the weather gets really warm I might hit the rivers, otherwise I am done smile.gif

Good luck to anyone goin' out, your gonna need it tongue.gif

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      congrats on the PB ! great time of the year. great pic!

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃
    • eyeguy 54
      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
