5/20/2012- We got out between storms yesterday and had a great bite in 7-10′ of water at Bittersweet Island. The wind was blowing hard and at times it was a downpour but the fish were biting best when the weather was at it’s worse. I’m glad we stayed out. Chubs and a jig are by far the best bait right now. We tried leech’s but had nothing with them. Ram Island has been good when the wind isn’t blowing 20 MPH. I talked to some guys who have been fishing Harris Island in 30-32′ and getting fish, lots of keepers deep and big fish shallower.
5/1/2012 Fishing opener is is 12 days and the lake levels are higher than I can remember in years for this time of the year. Fishing should be awesome on opening weekend. Some spots to try would be Tom Cod Bay where the walleyes move into to feed on spawning shiners, the flats between Cemetery Island and Three Sisters and Etling Island area. For someone without a boat, walleyes can be caught from the point at Woodenfrog Campground using a slip bobber and minnow.
6-30-11 Center Reef has been hot the last couple of days. We picked up limits of keepers along with lots of big fish on Lindy rigs and leeches. 28-30 feet were the best depths.
June 23- The rain and wind finally went away and fishing was great. 2 of us picked up 7 walleye, all 15-16″ using leeches and a Lindy Rig in 25′ of water. Harris Island and the NE side of Sugarbush were the spots. We threw back about 15 that were to big, with the largest being 24″. 1 of the group fished after dark in Eks Bay and hammered the crappies. White jig and a minnow fished under a bobber about 2′ did the job. Friday looks like another beautiful day to be on the water.
June 20- Walleye bite was great using leeches and crawlers. Channel marker 38 area in 20′, west side of Rottenwood, Etling Island and the area around Bluefin Bay were all great. Crappies have started to bite near shore on Bittersweet Island in the evening and in Ek Bay at night using white Uncle Buck Crappie Killers with a small minnow. Lots of bear activity in the last week. We’ve been seeing them everywhere, particularly on Sugarbush and Martin Islands.
June 15- What a difference a day makes. Wednesday, June 15 it was like someone flipped a switch, you couldn’t keep the walleyes off your line. They were biting on everything, minnows, leeches and crawlers all caught fish. 18-20′ seemed to be the best depth, but I heard of some people getting them as shallow as 6′. Three Sisters, Bittersweet and Cemetery were all great spots. I sure hope this keeps up for awhile.
June 14-Walleye fishing has been terrible all week. None of the usual spots are doing anything. One guide fished all morning on Kab with about 5-6 fish total caught, then headed to Rainy by way of Kettle Falls portage and caught nothing, not 1 fish! Listening to the scanner it sounds as though everyone is experiencing the same thing. I’m headed up to Lost Bay this morning to see if there is anything happening up that way.
