GEORGE has been kicking out some nice ones. Lowlight has been best for me, but im certain they would go after dark. I just havent needed to yet. I know Washington wasn't going for me after dark though.

So far this yet, I've had a few 100+ fish nights where I don't even get onto the water until well after dark. I am in the same situation where I work until 5. I live in Rochester, but I'm sure there are places you can find a decent night bite.

I've caught crappies, gills, catfish, trout, silver bass, and perch well after dark in the Rochester area.

Sandy bottom lakes are traditionally better lakes for night fishing, but all the ponds I've been fishing are mud bottom.

Good Luck

Yeah it was good early a.m. Like 4-6 am. Seemed to really slow by 6 on that particular day. A different day I was there noon till 6pm bite was solid most of the time. Go get'em!

I would guess it was a fairly deep water bite knowing that lake? Any sunnies in there?

Its good too hear about this lake again. Its been many years since i've heard much about it, i think it froze out a couple years back?? My grandfather and i used too catch alot of fish out there, hard and softwater. I'm going too be up that way this weekend, its tempting too try it there. But its been so long and being over an hour drive i dont know if i should risk a morning there over some of the other lakes i know. Dont know where the heck i would even start out there its been so long. Any size too the sunnies tims? Any northerns by chance?

I didnt find any size on the gills(one 8") and no incedental pike... The crappies made up for it though. Tip, if your catching small ones, MOVE grin.gif

I was on George tonight from 2 to 6 and caught no crappies. Those fish you were seeing coming in at 7 feet and going down were bullheads, I managed to catch a few on saw them on the camera. I guess the hot bite is over there or it was just a bad day for me. I moved around alot and did have a school of craps come through around 4, but they would not bite. Looks like another lake that I was a day late and a dollar short on. I think I will stick to Washington,it never lets me down.

Hey ctuma I was out there for only an hour before dark, I caught 2 nice crappies right a way and then nothing else. I finally called it a night due to the wind. I was getting blown around out there. I would say the bite is over.

I was there a few days ago and yes the bite did slow down. As a matter of fact I packed up after about an hour of searching. However this lake still should not be overlooked, it will produce given the right circumstances. Dont be afraid to try it again, you may be pleasantly surprised!! Might want to try very early in the morning or later at night...

      Funny, my wife and I drove by Big Rice on our way to Grand Rapids. I pointed to the launch and said, somewhere there's an old rotting couch in there, two clowns 🤡🤡 on the forum keep joking each other about pissing on. She said gross! Cuz that's what guys talk about on forums! 😆😅🤣

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.
    • delcecchi
      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.
