Yesterday on the mud

Recommended Posts

LovenLifeGuy

Was out yesterday with a guy from work who does not fish often and his first time on the big lake. we got out at 10 am and fished until 4pm. Not as fast as it has been, but we did well. We caught over 20 fish with the biggest being 26 and 6 keepers with 5 of them over 19 inches. Same as everytime this year, a lot of fish from 21-24 inches! Fish wanted either crawlers or leeches but all keepers came on crawlers. Fished long snells drifting for most of the day. Fish were coming from the deep side the break and on top of the mud, they are everywhere! Had some friends out who fished the north sand and caught some fish but only 1 keeper. Get out while the bite is hot! Good luck!

LovinLifeGuy,

Just curious, which flats were the most productive for you?

To be honest Im not sure it matters right now smile.gif. We got most of our fish on the boot yesterday. We did the best on the s/e side of the larger section of mud, right before it starts to narrow and drop before the very south section (if that makes sense at all). If it is busy out on the boot, I fished the mud closer to the sand up until my last two trips out because the sand was so good early. We found more eater size fish (15-16 inch) on those flats (resort, needle, jug or any in between). The boot got busy once the wind died down a bit and if we would have stayed I would have moved! Again, Im not sure it matters! Hope that helps a bit wink.gif and keep the fish going, I work the next 5 and cant get up again until Wed frown.gif. Good luck!

      I am coming up there Sept 5 and staying a week.  I can hardly wait!  I want to get in on the trolling bite before it gets too late.

      One of the reasons I decided to try them is size. Can't find shiners here and the fatheads are small, almost as small as crappie minnows. The light pike sucker minnows are 4" - 5" and with the water cooling down and the later part of the season, I'm thinking the size will more closely match natural forage. We'll see how things go.

      Went out of superior entry yesterday morning. Found some decent laker action. They were all on the small side and most all of them came in 52 fow on the riggers set at 45 ft. Ended up with 7 lakers and a bonus walleye. Had a lot of quick releases on the riggers as well so probably smaller Lakers.

      One of the lakers had 14 pieces of minnows in it's gut!! And it still attacked my spoon

      By the way, we saw three nice bucks in a group on Wakemup Village Rd on the way home.  I was sort of surprised since They were clearly in a group, and I thought bucks were more solitary.    Looked like 6-8 pointers.    Good looking deer.

      Went out late last week out of the Wisc entry and dropped a line in 55 feet of water and nailed one right off the bat before setting any other lines out. Trolled till 100am and we picked up 5 lakers and one nice walleye. Walleye went back.   Most on dipseys and one came off a  4 oz snap weight right off the back with spoons. No particular coleor
    • tacklejunkie
      Agree with the above. But I've also caught plenty of eating sized walleyes with them, also

      I've used light suckers when I couldn't get shiners or rainbows and was going after bigger walleye and they did work.

      We had bought bait for pike fishing last winter, well I sent my wife in to buy it while I fueled the truck.  Scoop of crappies and a dozen suckers for tip ups.  She came back with a scoop of crappies and a dozen light pike suckers.  Those are for pike, right?   We couldn’t get on the lake we intended to so went to plan B for walleyes with friends.  I “gave em a try” and was really impressed how well they worked.  I’ll definitely do it again.

      Went to Landing last night (Saturday).   Had reservations and got a nice table by the window.   Server was working hard but seemed like maybe she was new and over loaded.    My iced tea was served in a shorter glass, and the water was plastic cups.  Maybe the dishwasher was behind.   Food was good and served hot.   My burger was a little over cooked but not bad enough to make me complain to the place.  Just you guys.      Prices moderate.  They  had run out of artichokes for the artichoke dip...  Price was good.   Plenty food for me and mrs.     No alcohol, my buddy is on methotrexate and gets one beer a week.   His was friday at the cook vfw burger night which I highly recommend.
