Upcoming weekend


Recommended Posts

Me and my son are coming up this weekend. Wife is going to New York. I brought him up last year at age 5 and he cought his 1st ever URL Slab. What a look on his face when he saw it. We ended up with 13 for 3 of us last year. This will be my 1st time up this year, and from the looks of it Hillman's road is the best place to be. Looks like 6.5 miles and further is the ticket. The question I have is that being just him and I this weekend, I will drill as many holes as possible, and try and locate crappies, but at some point we will have to set-up the portable to fish at night. What is everyone's opinion? If you catch a couple of fish thoughout the day do you find what was your best hole during the day and go back to it or find a new spot that isn't touched and try that once the sun starts going down? Just curious on what people have experienced this year. Either way from the looks of it the eye's and perch should keep us busy. Any info is appreciated.

Usually where you are catching slabs during the daylight hours, that spot or somewhere near there is going to produce in the waning hours of the sun. I've had days where I've picked a few up throughout the day and nailed them there towards evening. Good luck...Hope you and your son get 'em. The youth is the future of our great outdoor heritage wink.gif

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....

      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.  
      Stuntz Bay Boathouse Historic District - Wikipedia   They have some info.
