I've had my permanent on Winnie all season and have been setting it on the breakline that runs up the East side of the lake. I've had a lot of perch and pike action, as most of us have by the sound of it. However, I have not been able to zero in on the walleye. This will be the last trip up and by what I've been reading it seems like the fish have moved into shallower territory. My house is out on Moxey's in the middle of a small 17' flat. 2 weeks ago it produced 9 keeper Perch (10"-11"), 2 Pike (21" & 25") and 2 small Walleye (both 9") **released**. It was a good time but I promised the Mrs a meal of Walleye and I'd hate to be a chump. I'm planning on moving the shack Friday morning and was thinking I'd go deeper on the break but now am second guessing as it seems my supper has moved up. Any suggestions? This is my first post. Thank you to all who reply.

Friday evening, we caught 3 walleyes in 18 feet of water, quarter mile off shore on east side, using fatheads and glow jigs. 5:30-7:00 pm. 15, 16 & 18 inches. Hope this helps.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.
