Fishing on LLB has been consistently inconsistent over the past several days. Tried pitching jigs over submerged weeds and have only been able to attract yellow bass. Walleyes have been very slow. I've caught more catfish than walleyes over the past four days. Have not had success during the daytime hours that this lake is usually known for. Bass have been found under docks and occasionally in shallow over rocky bottoms. Ratl traps have been good.

Will be out fishing again this week so hopefully the action picks up! Appreciate the tips provided below!

There's lots of small patches of weeds out there. This year almost everything seems to be in 9 FOW or less.

I think the rains/high water early in the season limited the weed growth this season.

In terms of fishing the weeds, a split shot or light slip sinker rig can help you work a presentation through them with minimal fuss. It also helps you slow down. Remember that often you won't feel a "bite" the line will just get a little heavy....hooksets are free.

Good luck.

If you're fishing the NW part of the lake, you'll find a very distinct weedline out to about 10 fow.   Start looking for weeds in that depth off the Jewish kid's camp, and work it around towards the north and keep following the contour. Try dragging or pitching an 1/8 oz. jig with fathead or leech just into and outside the weeds , and you should catch fish. Smallies and yellow bass were very active here last week, but eyes are slowing down. Try the same strategy on the east side, starting a couple hundred  feet north  of the bridge by the Fowler spillway.  Tip of the day Slowing your presentation down is key.

Caught a nice smallie under a dock and a small catfish drifting the NW corner of the lake this afternoon. SM came on Gulp and catfish on a crawler.

Can anyone help me find the weeds on this lake? Been having trouble finding fish here the past few days and haven't seen anything on the bottom! Either they're not biting or I stink at fishing (or a combination).

I appreciate the help!

You can only park a trailer in the lot by the boat launch/beach during the summer months if you have a handicap sticker. You will need to find street parking which typically a few blocks away on the weekends. They did build a nice new parking lot across the street from the new community center but not sure how difficult is is to park in there due to the number of cars.

Vehicles with trailers park on the road, and adjacent streets when Wisconsin Ave. Spots are full . Some people park in the launch lot, but I'm not sure if that's allowed in summer.

The launch is flooded right now, plan on wet feet and probably legs to get a boat out until the water from recent rain recedes. Lake is up probably 8" over normal summer controlled level.

Fished 8-10PM last night, thought I'd try one of the creek inlets since the water is very high from recent rains, and there was a noticeable flow.  As the mosquitos attacked me, walleyes starting biting like crazy.  When the mosquitos quit, so did the fish.  In 3' throwing jig and leech, right toward where the water comes into the lake from the creek, about 50 feet off shore.  Probably will be fish there in daylight too while the flow is on.

They were mostly on the small side, but fun catching 15+ walleyes in less than two hours!

Please slow boat no wake near shore with the high water!

Glad you and the kids had fun.


One request: put the camera down (as in off) while you are driving? No need to endanger yourself, those boys and anyone else driving near you on the roads as you try to film yourself talking about going fishing.
