This thread has been pretty dead for a while! Figured I'd breathe some life into it
Anyway, haven't fished Wazee since last winter, BUT, I have dived it a TON this spring/summer. Thoughts...
First off, haven't seen a SINGLE walleye while diving all year. Used to see them quite a bit.
Sherwood Forest - there's a large long rocky point that extends out from the dive launch. I ALWAYS will have a few nice sized SMB chasing me around in about 15-20 fow. Around the north side by the "cliffs" - those cliffs extend down into the water and hold lots of SMB - AND more bluegills holding tight to those cliffs (the fish cribs are just DEAD...nothing in or near them EVER) Also...the trout come out at night. I've done two night dives and seen probably 20-30 nice sized trout cruising through the trees and breaks in about 25-30 fow.
Boat landing area - there's a big long rocky point that extends off that point eastward toward the middle of the lake. Lots of SMB holding on this. Also, lots of crayfish in those rocks. Drop a crayfish texas/carolina style and you'll be hammerin' somethin before too long. Again, no sign of panfish/walleye/trout in that direction, but I only stayed upward of 50 ft deep when I was over there.
Bluegill Alley area - coincidentally, no bluegills to be seen. Only SMB holding to the steep dropoffs.
Thats about it. I'm excited for ice season to come back.
