Took off work this morn to fish. Just got back. Could not find the walleye but I caught about a 19" SMB, a measured 20" lmb, and I had a maybe 26"-28" pike right at the boat but lost it. Pike wasn't even hooked, just real determined. Bluegill bait under a float about 7' between float and hook, 15'-25' of water.
I see a lot of fisherman on this lake casting on the wrong side of the boat- the bigger fish are towards the deep in the summer not towards shore. I catch plenty big blue gills about 10'-5' off the bottom in 25' of water. They hit my spinner before it drop down into walleye territory.
