I was up there last weekend. We drove 6 and 7.5 miles past Pine Island out of Adrians. The fishing wasn't that good, but we enjoyed ourselves anyway.

Some folks wre talking about catching fish 10 feet off the bottom in 35 feet of water. We didn't see anything on the electronics up that high. The biggest we caught was 22"

I used small glow mousies with a full minnow (small rainbows, chubs and shiners). My buddy used the head of the minnow exclusively on a gold rattling jig. We caught about the same number of fish.

However, all fish were caught within 5-7 feet of the bottom AND when the bait was left alone for at least a few seconds, and always under a bobber (even the rattling jigs).

We brought home more tulibees than anything, but we did manage a good walleye feed at home.

I plan on smoking the tulibees when I find a good recipe.

I was told that the water used to be so cloudy that you couldn't see the bottom of your hole. I could see my jig go down at least 5 feet, so at least the top water is clear.

Good luck.

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      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....
