Different spot this morning . All fish caught in about 11' of water . Minnows on slip bobbers over wood , put a nice batch of good sized crappies in the live well . Also , a couple keeper walleyes as a bonus !!

First time out this year account family obligations . Walleye were in about 8' of water . Caught one on slip bobber & minnow , others on orange 1/8 oz jig with white twister tail .
SVO , the water is back more to normal now . Good leech bite going on now . Fished 7-10 fow this morning around stucture with 16th oz jigs and medium leeches , along with slip bobbers & leeches in the same type areas . I and a friend took two walleyes each yesterday and today , along with crappies as well . Yesterday had more wind and more action , today was slower but, we still found fish to eat !! Good Luck
svo , what have you been trying for catching fish here ? Water is still high and impacts locations to find fish . I'm sure the live bait ticket right now would be leeches , or , night crawlers either on slip sinker rigs or under slip bobbers . Have you tried fishing the weed edges at dusk ? Need to get to those edges before the sun sets so as not to spook the fish . They usually come in as the sun hits the tree tops . 3 fow at a weed edge or a small pocket along the weed line should produce as darkness approaches , if , you can stand the bugs !! Leeches under a bobber cast right in the pocket or along a weed edge can be good . Good luck and report if you have some luck .
Ever since the flood back several weeks ago, the fishing for me has been REALLY bad on Lyman. Anyone else experiencing the same thing? I'm still catching an occasional small northern, but I haven't been doing well catching muskies or walleyes for the past 3 weeks.
How are the Lyman Lake muskies doing? How have they recoverd from 2011?
Most who live here are busy with cleanups from flooding ,but, no reports of any fishkill this time . The water was much colder in this flood . Highest flood I've encountered here in the 25 years I've been here . Once the water recedes a bit more , and the debris clears , I think fishing will increase . Specially on weed edges .
