coming up 2nd week of June this year on the east end. I have been reading some of the old posts from last year during that time frame..for walleyes, is it lindys, jigging, cranks, bobbers or all the above?? I am assuming the walleye wont be out on the reefs yet or is that wrong? How about the Pike? Will they be in the shallower bays??? I cant wait to get the tackle box ready..oh, I already am. Thanks.

you are coming at a good time....all the presentations will work....although the lindy rig is mostly my choice by then...it all depends on the weather....slip bobbers can be very good also.....the pike may be going a little deeper by then...at least the bigger ones....but they are also a hoot to bobber fish when they are in shallow....there are guys who live by trolling also...leadcore seems to be a very good way to go....some real good eyes caught that waythe fish could be moving out to the midlake reefs by then...like i say the water temp and such will dictate where they are bitingbut overall you are hitting a decent time of year....good luck and set that hook!!!!!

thanks Gary, we have been coming up in July and its been very warm the last 2 years...Lindy's were the best presentation for walleye that we used...like you said water temp and weather will dictate everything, but I'm hoping we can catch them on something other than a rig, time will tell. Go Colts!!!

I'm up June 1 for a week. I seem to find plenty of northern in the backs of bays with weeds or emerging weeds. I like to throw a weedless spoon with a trailer. Throw it often and reel it fast. It is fun mid day fishing waiting for the later walleye bite.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
