Questions for the weekend? Thank you!


walleyefey

Recommended Posts

I am heading up Wednesday evening for a four day weekend. I am curious what road to head up on. Should a person use Rogers, Hillmans, Westwind, or other? We are happy to catch walleyes, pearch, northern, and obviously crappies. I would like to locate my lodge sleeper in an area that keeps the bobbers moving. If I have to move to find the crappies that is fine, I am just looking for a good road and distance on a road to look for good action. I have been looking at the reports and they are mixed. If anyone has some good input that would be awesome. I have the lures and electronics to do some good fishing, I would just love some input on where I should set up. I plan on setting up my permanent for all of the "other" fish and plan on searching for those elusive crappies. ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Right now your best bets are to fish either Hillman's or Westwinds roads anywhere from 4-7 miles out. Avoid the crowds amd look for rough ice. There's a lot of it this year. Keep moving until you find them. It took us almost 200 holes and a day plus to find them this weekend. Sometimes you get lucky and find them right away. Make sure to bring you auger extention. We barely got through dozens of times and didn't make it through on a couple of occassions.

Here's a hint. If you're catching lots of eyes you need to relocate if you want some slabs.

Good Luck!

I have gotten good reports from very reliable sources that they are getting fish out Hillman's road. Out five miles the road turns right, take that and go approx 1.5 miles and spread out if you can. Good luck.

Borch- I didn't catch a walleye in 2 days of fishing. We might have had 5 or 6 total for the 2 days. However, 29 crappies in the bucket. Good advice.

I am not sure yet when the next time I will be up for any length of time, other than the weekly drive up to stock up the magical glow jigs and spoons. I will contact you if I am coming up on either weekend. Take care.

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?

      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
