Any reports on Musky, about a two hour drive for me. Any reports help.
Thank you, tight lines
Report is from May 17th...launched around 0830....wind was already cranking....temps were 64º ...little stain but better than expected....most spots were unfishable because of the TOON....hard to stay over them as it howls....we managed to get 20+....only 10 made the cut...wish I had a 36 volt trolling motor system....maybe next year...LOL....nothing huge this trip...and sorry no pic's....lot's of shad swimming as we moved....carp were very busy shallow....casting got a few ...most on slip bobber and minnows...
Fished for about 2 hours before sunset last night, caught 2 keeper saugeyes along with a 17.75" and a few other shorts and 2 white bass, kept the 2 keepers and the larger white bass, hearing numerous reports of saugeye being caught as of lately.
Late report for Easter Sunday. Fished 2pm-7pm. Ended up with 12. Nothing bigger than 11". Had to work for them. Mini-mite under float. Had to keep it moving or no bites. Even tried minnows and not one bite. Did also catch a handful of small whitebass. Great day to be out.
Started off the day bass fishing. Had hard time finding fish as my trolling motor decided to go bonkers. Finally found a cove near the campground that let me drift at a normal speed. Ended up with 6 bass. All released. Nothing huge. Pic is of the biggest one. Ended the day crappie fishing unexpectedly. First cast i hooked into a beast. My personal best. 2.3lbs caught 5 others 9"-10". All caught on mini-mites. All released. Even the big one. She was full of eggs. Had to let her go.
saw this on another site wednesday ...
- Bass were FAIR on plastics, jigs and spinnerbaits off deep points, around deep timber and weed edge with a few on topwater real early in day.
- Bluegills were FAIR fish on wax worms and crickets around shore cover and best with shade.
- Catfish were FAIR on most baits
- Crappie were SLOW-FAIR this past weekend on minnows fished or drifted over deeper cover
Has anyone been on Evergreen lately? I am planing on taking my girlfriend and her kids fishing there tomorrow. Two of them are only 8 and just starting to learn how to fish. So it will be a lot of bobber fishing but they do want to try and catch a bass. I was just wondering what the lake conditions are currently like. Any info is greatly appreciated.
Hi guys im about to gontry out evergreen lake for the first time and was wonder if shore fishing is any good there. And if so what areas are best to target? Im willing to fish for whatever is biting not concerned about any one species! Thanks a lot guys!
Report is from July 9th and 10th....got out in the early afternoon and fished until 0130...had a crew of five crappie hunter's ....boy o' boy what a time we had...day time tactic's worked ...we found fish on mosst spot's checked...all c.p.r...good friends Al and Bill had to leave at sunset and the rest tried some nighttime crappie tactic's....we did better during the day....lot's of bug's and lot's of bait fish swarming the lights....whitebass and crappie were slow to show....got up early on Sunday and wacked them on Charlie Brewer sliders....Dan ,Tim(Gunner), and I had a great time before the hot temp's shagged us off around noon....
Out at daylight. The wind was out of the North at 10 Mph. Water temps were in low to mid 80's. Caught 16 Walleye/Saugeye on plain worms and small Chartreuse curly tails with a piece of worm, drifting with the wind. Quit around 3 pm. One was 18 inches one was 17. The rest were between 13 and 15. The fish were a little tentative in the early morning but getting more aggressive as the morning wore on. Catching slacked off in the early afternoon. As has been said before, on flats close to drop offs. Which flat works depends on wind direction. Have a good one fishing!
I don't fish for them, but I hear that a lot of saueye are being caught just about everywhere on the lake. Everyone seems to have about the same story. They are catching good numbers of them, but all are under the 18" length limit.
Just find a long flat close to deep water and you will find the saugeye.
I have fished here a few times for bass, but have been hearing good things about the sauger population. Does anyone have any pointers on where some of the better areas are to fish for these as I am going to take my wife out fishing and was hoping to catch at least a few instead of spending whole day guessing? I am new to sauger fishing and would appreciate any tips. Thanks!!
