Isle area

Recommended Posts

I am heading up to the Isle area on Saturday morning. Looking for some ideas on where to go and what to use for perch and walleye. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I posted a report for Banana and Graveyard reefs out of Lybacks from last Saturday. Take a look back in the forums, should be in the first or second page.

Did well for perch using red-glow with euro larvae.

We were using treble hooks with 1 1/2 oz egg sinkers fishing the bottom and we took a couple big carp. We ended up switching to lighter egg sinkers because the current wasn't what we thought it would be.

We were fishing for perch which are known as bottom feeders but we we laying into some pretty big carp. We put on a 1 1/2 oz egg sinker so when the perch grab the hook the weight will set the hook for us. We actually ran into a DNR officer last week and he gave us a warning because we didn't have a spinner within so many inches of the treble hook. He said that our stratagey was unique. I think he will use this technique after he seen those big carp there on the ice.

They are not that active in the winter but if you can locate they will be plentiful. Winter is when most of the carp records have been broke. They are real sluggish. We cut a 10" hole after what happened 2 years ago. We were using my friends 8" auger (Tony)and we had a carp that would have looked real nice on the wall. We tried to cut a second hole to get it through but lost the carp during the process. Ever since that day we have gone to 10" holes and treble hooks. If you are going to get into carping I would stay with the 1 1/2 oz egg sinker. Tony felt pretty bad but I knew he didn't try to lose my prize carp. This guy actually went in the water after a carp when we were summer fishing on the river. The mong were close by and they didn't think there was a chance that we would end up giving them the fish. You should have seen there face when we gave them the 15 lbs. carp. I couldn't understand them but I think they thanked us.

      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.

      Have the Mayflies started.  We are coming up end of July and trying to see what the time line for them are this year.  Not sure how the late ice out would effect the hatch.  Thanks in advanced.

      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.

      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
