The strong winds kept this crew out of some of the “main” fishing spots, but they still managed to boat a couple hundred Walleye and just as many Northern. They mainly used jigs and minnows for Walleye and fished the points and weedbeds in 6-9 feet of water. Their biggest Walleye was 23 inches. For Northern, they threw swim shads and spoons in the bays in 4-8 feet of water. Their biggest Northern was 38 inches. The best fishing was in the mornings and late afternoon/evenings after 3pm.
Each person caught an average of 60 Walleye per day. They had a 23-incher, three 22-inchers, and about 30 around the 20-inch mark! Their best advice was to stick with a jig and a minnow! At one point, the group caught over 200 Walleyes in just 3 hours. They mainly jigged off the bottom in 8-12 feet of water. They caught a few Northern while Walleye fishing with the biggest being 32 inches.
With the poor weather conditions and extremely low water levels, this group found the numbers caught to be a little down from previous years, but they found a lot of real quality fish. This group of 4 still caught 1,013 Walleye and 68 Northern. The biggest Walleye was 25 inches and the biggest Northern was 38 inches. ¼ oz jig with sassy shad and minnow was the best for Walleye and similar set up for Northern. The best spots to fish were the outflow, the s-curve, the island in front of the cabin, and the creek behind the cabin all in 8-10 feet of water.
Good fishing, good food, and good fellowship was a quote from this fishing report. Their biggest Walleye was 23 inches and biggest Northern was 36 inches. They fished Walleye with jigs and minnows in 6-8 feet of water along shorelines and around islands. The Mepps No. 5 Gold Blade was best for Northern and they were found along shorelines and reefs. All fish were around 6-8 feet deep.
