Indian Lake Chain:
The Muskie were crazy on the Chain this week! The biggest one caught was 48 inches. There were also lots of big Walleye caught on Cobble and Boulder down in the 17-foot water. The Walleye were really liking the crank baits this week! The Lake Trout are also biting good. Northern Pike are hiding in the reeds and they should be on the prowl real quick. They have been hitting on surface baits. Best news of all is that the Walleye fishing is back on again after a slow week with the mayfly hatch. Anyone can catch a Walleye now!
It was quality over quantity this week when it came to Walleye fishing on Cedar! Some guests were having a hard time catching enough under 18” to eat for dinner! There were so many Walleye over 22” caught this week including a couple of 28 inchers and a few 25 and 26 inchers. The Walleye were in 12-16 feet of water and were biting on leeches and minnows on 1/8 oz jigs. They were mostly found on humps, reefs, and points.
This group had slower fishing at McVicar this week due to a nasty mayfly hatch! They caught about 1,000 Walleye and were fishing with minnows and also split tail grubs (4"). The Walleye were in 4.5-9 feet of water and the biggest they caught was 25 inches. The biggest Northern was 40 inches and was caught on a Walleye spinner. Best fishing was mid morning and then any time after 3 p.m. and in inlets, points, weedbeds, and on both portages.
