Nothing much to report 1 walleye. Only walleye caught was in 15 fow on a spinner. Found a ton of fish suspended in 40 feet of water about 20-30 feet down. Did not catch a single one of them though.
Has anybody taken a look around Mel's dock (to tunnel point) to check for debris? Fellow boater hit a few longs in the area and took a lower unit off. Any other reports?
Has anyone been fishing the east end lately. Has it picked up at all. What depths are you fishing in. Will report after the trip tomorrow
Fished from marina east. Not a fish except 1 bass . Tried jigs and lindys with minnows and crawlers. Tried island and anywhere from 6 to 25 feet. Water temp was 55 In main body and up to 60 in the bays.
Went to Van hook on friday, fished around Gull island and Horsehead island. The bite was fast in the morning but by 11am it slowed way down. Lots of short bites in the morning. Mostly on jig and minnow, had a few on lindy rig. Water temp around Gull Island was 53 and by 11am it was 56. Fished the NW end in the afternoon and water temp was 63 in the shallows. As I was cleaning fish, I talked to four other fishermen with mixed results, two boats didnt catch anything and then the other guy came in with a limit.
hows the walleye fishing going might come up for a trip
