Walleyguy et others-

Coming up to "pete" this weekend (09/20), new to the lake. Want to focus on walleyes, but wouldn't mind catching white bass either.

I was thinking my general fishing tactic will be trolling Ybirds and flat lines with #5 Flicker and #4 Hornets, roughly 75 to 100' back in 8-12 FOW. Sound correct? Any recommendation for areas of the lake to focus, FOW and depth of lure?

I wouldn't mind do some jigging for walleyes or WB as well, any recommended spots?

Thank you for your help, really appreciated. Only get one or two chances to fish with my DAD each year. Feel free to send PM.

Bob,Tim booked another guide trip with me today on petenwell.I picked the boys up at 7am from petenwell county park. Very little wind in the early morning hours. Water temp was 57 in the morning and when we left it was around 60. We started out trolling boards and #5 flicker shads in shallow water. Later we switched it up ran to the river and jigged Isg weedless jigs tipped with half crawler. Water is up some and flowing really good. Plus the water in the river is very dirty. Visibility on the main lake is around a foot. Father you go south the better it gets. Plus there is very little green left on main lake. Saw a little on east side today. Lots of guys calling and asking if the bouys are still in? Yes they still are in on the south end and north end up threw the river. From yellow banks north there are a few new big logs in main channel. Couple big trees as well. Lots of flow in the river brought a few new things down. Be safe catch lots of fish Big Smile Big Smile

So then there is no thermocline?... what I'm really getting to is this. My wife and I are going to try the Pete for the first time the week of the 22. This is not our cup of tea and she wants to walley fish. I've caught no more walleyes that I can count on one hand. I also have a hanker for some MUSKY. Anyway, don't mean to beg but any advice would be really helpfull. And if its a secret you can inbox me. Thanks.

Dale from Naperville, IL booked a trip for Saturday as an 80th birthday gift to his dad Chuck. Chuck lives by Lake Camalot and has not fished "Pete" in many years. It was a very cool foggy start to the morning with the temperature in the upper 30's. We trolled cranks all morning and finished at noon with 2 "keepers", 9 "shorties, 7 crappies, 1 white bass, and 2 muskies. Big Smile

Keep a tight line!!!

DMG1, This is a river system, it is constantly turning over. Right now they are running 25,000 cubic feet a second thru the gates at the dams. That's putting a big mix on the lakes. Smile

Hey Pike-Eyes was that you camping straight out of Chesters near the mouth of the river? If so it looked like an awesome set up! If you get a chance turn on your messenger Smile

from the sideways picture, it looks like jigs must have worked pretty well also.

Fished on 9-7 thru 9-9 about 14 hours total. Went south and trolled for eyes. Ended up with 3 shorts, 1 catfish and 101 white bass. When we decided to target the whites hard in the last 2 hours caught 43! Flicker Shads and Hornets worked best. 3 mph, 22 - 26 ft. It was a good trip!

Jay and Pam from Tomah booked a trip on "Pete" for some trolling this morning. A cool start to the day, but the sun came out around 9 and it warmed up quickly. We pulled Flicker Shads and Shad Raps from 7 till 11 and boated 1 "Keeper", 14 "shorties", 4 crappies, 4 white bass, 6 cat, and 2 sheephead. Big Smile

Tom and Terry were out again yesterday on "Pete". They wanted to do some jigging, so we headed south into a pretty stiff west/ southwest breeze and worked the south bouy line and boated a handful of "shorties and a few white bass. Left there and tried a mid-lake-hump and didn't have a tap there. Went up to Longview and only had a couple hits. We then headed towards the north end to troll for an hour. The water is really dirty and a lot of debris floating all over. Some gates are open at the dams with flows over 20,000 cfs. Point Bluff camp sites below Castle Rock dam at Highway 82 are under water. We finished the day with 8 "shorties", 4 white bass, 3 sheephead, and 1 cat. Sad

Keep a tight line!!!

I envy the guys who have it in there back yard. PEACE til next time. DOBBER
