The Northern fishing was excellent this week and so was the Crappie fishing! We had some guests that mainly fished Crappie because it was so much fun and there was so much action! The Walleye fishing really picked up towards the end of the week and there were a lot of Muskie seen.
Indian Lake Chain:
The Trout action was great again this week. The Walleye fishing was fair… they are in about 15 feet of water and on the reefs. The best times for Walleye were in the evenings and early mornings. It was also a good week for Muskie.
These guys are “regulars” at Antenna Lake and they said the fishing this year was great! They fish non-stop all week and say that if you sleep in, you miss the BEST sunrises! They definitely aren’t kidding… check out the picture below. These guys caught over 1,500 Walleye and their biggest was 25-inches. The best lure was a bottom bouncer and the Walleye were mostly on the reefs. The best fishing was in the morning and they found the Walleye at about 8-10 feet. Their largest Pike was 42 inches and the best lure was a Dr. Spoon (or the Northern would hit on Walleye that you’re reeling in!)
This group had fantastic Walleye fishing on Grace. They fished mainly with a jig and a minnow on shorelines and rock reefs in 8-10 feet of water. They caught about 100 Walleye per day!
This group caught over 1,500 Walleyes on Otatakan! They fished with jigs with minnows and powerbaits. The best spots were reefs and shorelines and the fish were deeper; between 15 and 25 feet.
The fishing was excellent for two days, but slowed to “fair” on the other two days. The largest Northern caught was 41 inches and the largest Walleyes were 26 inches, and 25 inches.
This group said the fishing was solid all week on Kam! They said the bonus of having fresh minnows every couple of days really made the difference. They went through more minnows than ever before. They got a few Northerns in the 40 inch range and their biggest Walleye was 22 inches. They caught and released lots of Walleye over 18 inches. They said there is definitely a healthy size range of Pike and Walleyes in that lake, which is great news for the future!
