Fishing there for first time this coming weekend. Looking for a little help with my research.

DNR report is a few years old but shows a decent population of stocked walleyes. With the relatively shallow water is a spinner/crawler or trolling cranks a good way to go?

Or should a guy try and isolate some structure and slow it down. I'm thinking the bullheads might be pesky if a guy is rigging bait.

Panfish or bass a legit option if the walleye bite is slow?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

we're not ignoring you bud, it's just that Height of Land is a better duck hunting spot than a fishing hole.

Thanks guy. Did notice on the DNR report that it was susceptabile to winterkill so I can see where it's probably not one of the more popular angling destinations in the area.

HoL had low O2 levels this winter on our testing. I don't what effect it may have had on the fishery.

Actually the fish population appears healthy. Caught many small northerns. A few very nice Perch and Crappie and 7 or 8 decent Walleye.

Spinners on the breaks and weed edges for Walleye. Small jigs in the weeds for the panfish. The little Northerns were every where.

Given the weather on Saturday it was a pretty decent day of fishing.

There are some fish to be had out there. Try white spinners with crawlers, fatheads, or leeches in 8-10 fow outside the weed edge. If you look on the map there are some sand bars on the lake, those would be good spots to start.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
