OVERVIEW- Another great couple of days fishing! The lake is hot right now so if you get a chance bring the boat up to Big Cormorant, and get in on the stellar walleye fishing that's happening right now.
Fished Friday evening for about 2 hours and brought back 2 beautiful eyes', a 16.25" and a 16.5". Missed about 3 more, but still a succesful outing. Both fish and all of our bites came on lindy-rigs w/crawlers.Went out Saturday from 7am-230pm and came through with a limit of more beautiful eaters all ranging from 14"-17". Once again the lindy-rigs w/crawlers were the ticket, tried small sucker minnows but they didn't produce. We even found a new spot to add to our list of Big C' honey holes. A rock bed that starts in 23FOW and slopes down to 31FOW, just North-East of the island.
Cooler air temps and some rain during the week dropped the water temp a few degrees from 75 degrees down to 72 degrees. Didn't hurt the fishing though, if anything it helped it. A better class of fish moved up onto the deep points, breaks, and saddles this last week as it seems the smaller 13" class goes where the huge clouds of baitfish go (which are plentiful this time of year). So it pays to know where the wind is coming from and having good electronics to distinguish schools of bait. The fish moved a little deeper too, all of the fish caught where in 23FOW to 28FOW, BUT as the sun got higher in the sky we found fish stacked in 31FOW. We couldn't get those fish to bite though, whcih shows that these aren't feedings areas but places for the fish to rest before and after moving up to their feeding areas. The crawler bite is hot right now and should last for a couple more weeks, as long as we dont have any major and sudden drops in temperature. When that time comes, gonna have to switch over to suckers and redtails.
Will try and keep you posted on fishing on Big Cormorant. Good Fishing!
