Going up the first week of August.  Never fished Metonga before. Any tips anyone can offer.  My 10 year old boy is super excited to go fishing.  Wants a Walleye and a Northern.  Told him we would try.  Can anyone tell me where are good spots and depths in late summer?   Thanks A bunch!!!

Plan to fish Metonga this weekend.  It's been many years since I've fished it.  We used to do well on the Perch.  Anybody have any info on the Perch fishing lately? Depth, bait etc.I do appreciate any info you might have.

Have been up fishing a few times the last couple of weeks. Walleye has been hit or miss. Had my best day midafternoon with jetskiers and water skiers all over the place and fish were up shallow. All trolling 5-12 of water on cranks. Tried casting after dark a couple of nights and picked up one decent fish at 24". Almost all of the fish I've caught have been in that 20-24 slot. I don't keep Em anyway so it doesn't bother me. They are fun to catch either way on a beautiful summer night. On another note....Does anyone have any idea what the slimy little green balls that are like jelly almost like some kind of fish eggs. But I do think think that's it.?Leave anything in the water for 5mins and it will be covered with them.

Came up to cabin last night and didn't get out fishing till 9:45pm. Third cast nice 24"walleye up real shallow on a smithwick but unfortunately that was the only fish. Called it a night at 11:33pm and was on water by 7 fished till 11 and didn't get a bite. Usually get 1 nice fish every time out but it's always just 1 winter or summer. Wish I could figure out a pattern to put a few more fish in the boat. I throw all my walleyes back on Metonga. Get enough for a few meals on wolf river just doing this for fun and maybe a trophy fish some nite. Peace

I guess check the board at the launch on Saturday to know for sure. Good luck to you and have a safe season.

At one point I looked at the same sheet thinking it was current.  2016-17 regs were effective April 1, 2016.  Your post shows the 2015-16 regs.  It is a little confusing but you just have to closely watch the dates.  As for the rationale for changing, I haven't the slightest idea, but I always thought a slot would be an interesting idea.  I would have liked the slot to be 20-28, there are quite a few 28+" walleyes in Metonga right now and that would allow someone to keep a nice trophy, if desired.  Good luck this weekend, have not been out on lake so I have no idea where the fish will be in the post spawn schedule, will it be jigs or crankbaits?
