Thats true but normally I can find a way to get anything els to bite lol Whites just evade my natural fishing instincts lol
Wolf River - Fremont
"Open water" is just part of it. Also things like food come into play regardless if on a lake or river. There's so much available natural food that fish just don't need to go after anything that looks "hinkey". Compared to other seasons, summer is the hardest to produce fish IMO.
On the lakes you want weed beds near deep water. Finding deep on the lake is hard to do but 8 feet on the lake would sometimes constitute deep. Even a little less. Walleye chop on a cloudy day is key.
Nobody has a majic recipe conditions are everchanging. I have a 3 ring binder loaded with information I started many years ago. I look up dates on my target water and it allows me to zero in on exactly what to do.
Now go out and have fun.
mgrell - I have always had a hard time myself finding Whitebass outside of the river system up till last year out on Bago for the first time ice fishing do you have any areas you think I should start? No need for a hot spot just a good direction to go in? You can PM me if you don't want to post it on here!
