Was on the Willow Wednesday, Fished in till 2 for cappies, blue gills and perch. Got some nice ones on a few spot an other spots not so good. Still had 17 to take home for the frying pan some good eating. Still have days open for any one that wants to get out.
71° - 75° F
66° - 70° F
Had a pretty good day Weds with a nice mixed bag. Keeper walleyes were tough but managed some with some nice ones lost! We had perch up to 13" and bluegills up to 10". Jim, Sandy and Hunter kept me busy. Sandy had a couple of dandy smallies about 19" the biggest. All fish we're caught on a half crawler on slip bobbers and jigging with a small hook 1/16 ounce jig. They were caught on humps in about 16' of water with wood on them.
Was out on the Willow this morning for a few hours by my self looking for Crappies. Got a mix bag of fish but no big crappies and the Blue Gills didn't bite. Had some fun though just messing a round. I have days open if any one wants to get out and Musky Hunter you can call me and I can help you. Thanks
Looking foe some info on this lake for next year maybe. like how the fishing is, when is the best time to go there and is it a dangerous lake to travel?
Thank you all for all the tips. I plan on getting up there before noon on the 28th, I just hope theres a campsite available.
Joey, try drifting with crappie minnow or jig with hunk of work for pan fish in 8-16FOW off islands. Also, could try weed lines with jig/worm for pans as well.
I'm heading up to the willow for camping and fishing the last weekend in August. I haven't been there in 4 or 5 years and I'd like to catch some fish. Are there any tips anyone's willing to share? Any free guidance would be greatly appreciated, this is the first time going up with just me and my girlfriend, and I'd like her to catch some nice fish to get her hooked thanks in advanced.
Tuesday was out with a buddy Greg fishing for crappies over wood and it was slow. Got 3 really fast then nothing so went for Walleyes and got 5 nice ones. All were caught in 16 fow on slip bobbers and a leeches. Thanks Greg.
I don't need proof. I thought the fact that someone would think that you can't fish with a 1/16th oz jig in 20' was hilarious. Unfortunately my sarcasm doesn't work well on a blog post.
