The mayflies are just starting in Frazier Bay. We could see a few in the boat the last couple of days. Then started seeing big trails on water yesterday and today. I just got done cleaning 3 walleyes and they were full of them.
Just an update, walleye are still hanging on the week edges. I caught mine in 8-10FOW again. Lost one that was 4-5lbs. Best part, I have yet to use livebait this open water season. Basically the same technique as last week.
Only issue is finding the weeds that hold the fish. Same as last week, just looking on SI, finding small transitions between weed edge, soft/hard bottom ect.
Once you find them, then you can spot lock/talon down and cast at them.
And, as before all fish were released.
i'll be headed up thursday afternoon. not sure if i'll fish much over the weekend, but if i do it'll be small lakes, lakes that i need to use a12 or 14 ft boat in the back of the truck kinda lake!!!!!👌 i have some projects around the cabin thats been on the honey doo list for some time i need to finish!!!!
come monday afternoon when everyone is headed home...it could be game on!!!!!!!
SO Kettle.......how are the skeeters????? are the deer and horseflies in full stride yet???? the n little ankle biting friggin flies??????
Saturday and Sunday were tough days on the water, NW winds post cold front. Got better yesterday and today. Took a retired friend out today and sent him home with 4, should have been 6 but I was off my game. Water Temps around 70. Unfortunately can only fish Thursday as I have to work a few days, this weekend. Safe travels on the Independence weekend!
Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4 even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it
