Ice Is On

2011-12-16 There are reports of good ice on the lake. However, I heard Cliff, the guide, went down in 5 ft. of water on his ATV. He got out ok.  Please be careful out there. Ace reports there is 9-10 inches of ice over in the McKinley Park area and the walleye bite has been pretty good. Not much snow yet for the middle of December. Though little snow helps for good ice making. If a trip north is in… Read More »

So Easy a Caveman Can Do It

2011-09-10 Walleyes continue to be caught with shad raps on breaklines in 15-18 feet. Most in the 14-16 inch range. Great for the table. My wife texted a friend while we were getting doubles the title above. The bite has been wonderful for several weeks now. Slowed a little on days that have been in the eighties and dead flat calm, but otherwise has been real consistent.The weather has remained very pleasant. The water is down a lot over the… Read More »

Crankin Continues

2011-08-30 Walleyes continue to be caught with shad raps on breaklines in 15-18 feet. Most in the 14-16 inch range. Great for the table. The weather has remained very pleasant. The water is down some 6 inches or so in the last couple of weeks. We could use some rain. Water temps are close to 70 still. Smallmouth bass have been caught off of shorelines in 10-11 feet. If a trip north is in your plans, give us a call… Read More »

Good Crank Bait Bite

2011-08-20 The walleye fishing continues to be very good with many eaters being caught on crank baits. The break lines have been working for us real consistently in 15-18 feet. Many fish in the 15.5-16 inch range with an occasional big one 20+ caught. Some times we stop and lindy rig a spot we mark fish on with consistent success. Small mouth bass have also been caught with this method. If a trip north is in your plans, give us… Read More »

Walleye Bite Improving

2011-08-08 Walleye fishing was good this past week. We caught them trolling cranks and lindy rigging. Plenty of fish for fish fries with some nice twenty + inch fish caught. Tyler Jerkovich caught a 21.5 and enough for a meal Sunday evening. The lake seems to be very healthy with various walleye sizes being caught consistently. Depths have ranged from 23-28 feet to 16-18 feet. Water temps have dropped some into the mid to low seventies.Muskie fishing has been erratic…. Read More »

A Good Muskie Week

Doug Miller found fish and managed to release a 22.5. Trolling crank… Read More »

Muskie Action Heats Up!

2011-07-24 Muskie action finally heats up!!! After some stifling heat last week, the cold front and rain on Saturday seems to have opened the gates and the bite has improved. Bill Filer kicked things off with a 35 incher, and Mark Bergeron ended his week with a nice 42 who fell for the figure 8. Dave caught a 47 Sunday, and Justin Jaminski caught a 47.5 Sunday evening as well. Bass started to pick up later Sunday afternoon, and the… Read More »

Pleasant Weather

2011-07-14 What a difference in weather. We’ve had nice pleasant weather for the last two weeks. Some heat, but not to bad. The last couple of days have been in the low seventies and low humidity. Fishing has been up and down. The Saltarski’s did really well off the pontoon last week on walleye. They fished a main lake hump jigging mostly while anchored. Water temps are definitely in the 70’s now. Muskie have been going off and on in… Read More »

Wet Week

2011-06-27 In lousy weather, Jim and Chris Kotek spent a week catching plenty of “eater” walleyes and released bigger fish. They had several fish frys, and caught and released some nice bass as well. We look forward to their return in 2012 – year in and year out, they find a way to catch fish. The return of normal temperatures will bring more consistency to the bass fishing, and some of the best muskie fishing is coming. If a trip… Read More »

Mayflies Start

2011-06-19 The mayflies started to hatch this past week in Pike Bay and in our Bay. Walleye have been caught shallow in these areas on shallow running baits. Fish have also related to summer humps in 23-26 feet. Diane and I did quite well on leeches and crawlers.  Patience has been the name of the game, as nearly everyone is marking plenty of fish, but  the key has been being there at the right time!Smallmouth have been caught in shallow… Read More »
