Whitefish


jerk bait

Recommended Posts

I'll be up at the end of Feb. Any idea where we can find whitefish during the day. We caught a bunch about 5 years ago and had a blast.

AHHHH. the ol' whitefish bite.... It's pretty much history now. You may get one a year if you're lucky... I've only had 2 total caught in my houses the last 3 years. 4 summers or so ago the Upper LAke got to warm for them... they either moved down to the lower lake to survive or died. Now the Northern and Walleyes are making sure there aren't to many of them either. Good Luck... but I'd probably rather spend my time looking for a daytime crappie bite.

Good Luck!

That's too bad it sure was fun watching them swarm into the hole and fight over the bait. We must have caught about 100 that day from 3 to 4 pounds.

I'll bet a lot of them made a good snack for all those 40 inch plus northerns in the lake.

Labs is sadly correct, the whitefish just are not around like they used to be. We used to fish them up shallow with a swedish pimple and have a blast. The last few times I tried good whitefish spots I got skunked.

There are still a few whitefish crusing the shallows some of the spearing guys are seeing them but they sure not in the #'s they used to be. We used to go out of Rogers a 1/4mi. out with waxies and white twister tails and fill the smoker in a couple hours of fishing. I'd love to get back into them.

      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.
