fish trap lake

Recommended Posts

My nephew will be in town the end of January and he wants to go icing. Was thinking of going to fish trap. Never fished her in winter. Any suggestions. Was thinking lovers point in 20' or would I be better off on Towers Island same depth. Any suggestions appreciated, Rick

Try Alexander......Fishtrap is a moody mistress. Alexander is far more consistent.

How about Shamineau? Historically, does that lake produce in the winter?

Thanks.

Where would be a likely spot to go on Alex. Out from the township access. Try the 20' areas or should I be deeper, thanx, Rick

I've been fishing straight out from the township access and it's been real slow. The ones I do get are small(10-12") I'm in 31' on the side of the steep break, thinking about moving house a little deeper.

Took my house off of the lake on Sunday. Moved three times that weekend and caught one little walleye. Terrible. How about you? did you move your house yet? The last spot I tried was on the tip where you were and nothing there also. I tried just about everything. Maybe this cold front with do something. Probably shot them off completely. KOOBA Keep me updated on whats happening out there.

I didn't move it yet, probably this weekend. I've got all next week off so I'll be fishing quite a bit, don't know how long I am going to stay on Alex.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
